Likable guys talking good Xs & Os

Really enjoy listening to Simms break down plays and offer his insights on the game plan. He’s usually very thorough across the league which I appreciate. As a Packers fan, I also appreciate that he rightfully recognizes Aaron Rodgers as the best. I really enjoy the banter with the amiable co-hosts Burmeister/Fareed. Simms can make fun of himself which is under appreciated. I give this podcast 5/5 even though Simms’ has some bad takes on politics ;).
