Phil Simms says world can handle Francesa, Russo split
What did Phil Simms, a suburban New Yorker for three decades and a regular Sunday morning guest of Mike Francesa, think of the "Mike and the Mad Dog" split?
I asked him about it Tuesday at the CBS pre-season NFL luncheon:
"Is it strange? I guess. But it's like somebody said to me once, 'You know, the NFL is going to change when Dan Marino and John Elway retire.' And I go, 'No, it's not. It'll just keep marching along. Its the helmet, it keeps moving, it doesnt matter whos there.' And I kind of feel that way about the radio show. People love sports talk radio, theyre used to listening to that and theyre going to continue to listen, regardless of whos there."
