Phil Simms struggles with basic addition and subtraction

Brian Billick wasn't the only NFL analyst to have a brief brain malfunction at the end of a playoff game this weekend.  Not to be outdone, CBS's Phil Simms advised the Houston Texans to kick a long field goal trailing 41-28 against the New England Patriots with 20 seconds left in the game… a field goal that would leave the Texans still down by 2 scores.  Jim Nantz has to gently correct his broadcast partner's wrong and Simms is left to admit he has no idea what he's thinking.

It's a great time to remind you that Phil Simms will be analyzing the Super Bowl this year for CBS.

Perhaps this clip explains why Simms went into the broadcast booth and not into coaching.  We shouldn't be too hard on him though, sometimes math is just plain hard.
