Like your grandma, Simms also refers to it as "the internets."
For the average football fan, there are two known facts about Titans' third-string QB Chris Simms.
1) He's the son of former New York Giants quarterback and current CBS analyst Phil Simms
2) He once played with a ruptured spleen
For the average football fan who also reads sports blogs, however, there's one lesser known fact about Simms: He has another man's initials tattooed on his leg.
Simms got the tat while playing at the University of Texas. His best friend and fellow teammate returned the favor, getting "CS" inked on his ankle. Then, naturally, they were both accused of being gay. Fortunately, thanks to Titans kicker Rob Bironas, we now have an official rebuttal from Simms and an extra bit of knowledge about our favorite clipboard-holder.
While reporting last week's cover story
, Bironas interrupted our conversation to offer this gem:
Bironas: Despite what the media is saying, Chris Simms is not gay.
Simms laughed off the joke -- because that's what you do when the team's lowliest member rips on you -- and said that he ignores such speculation by avoiding sports media in general, a task made easier because he doesn't own a computer. That's right, he's a 28-year-old American male who's never used e-mail and doesn't
live in a Montana compound. This team just keeps on giving.
