It’s a good thing Jim Nantz and Phil Simms aren’t calling the Super Bowl this year. After their bumbling commentary during the AFC championship game, it’s clear they both need to take a long vacation. The low-light of the telecast, which featured it’s usual mix of Simms malapropisms, came when Tom Brady fumbled the football on a QB sneak in the third quarter. Though the officials awarded the ball back to the Patriots, Steelers lineman Javon Hargrave emerged from the pile with it. That prompted Mike Tomlin to throw the challenge flag.

Prior to reviewing the play, referee Terry McAuley said he was looking into whether there was a fumble and clear recovery. But for some reason, Nantz kept insisting McAuley said there was a “clear recovery by Pittsburgh.” This prompted Simms to admit he had no idea what was going on.

“OK, so I’m confused. So you’re saying you are, too?” Simms asked.

Announcers are supposed to add clarity to the game, but Nantz and Simms often do the opposite. Their inane babbling distracts from what’s happening on the field.

While Simms has been like this for years, Nantz’s cluelessness is a new phenomenon. But then again, there have been some signs recently that he’s losing it. Last year, Nantz said in an interview with Golf Digest he carries a picture of burnt toast in his wallet.

Hour 1. The Patriots are going to the Super Bowl, which means Kirk and Gerry are going to Houston. Tom Brady joins the show.

LeGarrette Blount took a page out of LeBron James’ book in the AFC championship game. After scoring a touchdown late in the third quarter, he brought out “The Silencer,” mimicking James’ signature road celebration. James, who was presumably tuned into the game like most sports fans, appreciated the gesture.

Though James is an unabashed Cowboys fan, it was difficult to not admire the Patriots’ dismantling of the Steelers Sunday night. Blount’s touchdown run, which came after he had dragged seven Pittsburgh defenders all the way to the goal line, served as the proverbial nail in the coffin. The burly running back finished with 16 carries and 47 yards.

Of course, when James mentions you on Twitter, it’s only appropriate to return the favor. Blount let him know the shoutout was appreciated.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “We have a special team, a special group of guys that really work hard. They deserve the success that they’ve had. I mean it’s hard to win 16 games in this league. You’ve got to give a lot of credit to the players and the job they’ve done all year week after week. It’s tough but they come in and grind it out. They sit in these seats for hours, and hours, and hours, and prepare, and prepare, and go out there and lay it on the line every week. Again, it’s a good group of men.”– Bill Belichick, on the character and work ethic of the Patriots

HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Wily Mo Pena (35)
