ProFootballTalk’s Chris Simms has a beef with ESPN and the SportsCenter Instagram account, apparently over using his words about Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts against him in their posts.

Simms was asked about the feud and his choice words for the network on a recent edition of his podcast by Dan Patrick on the former SportsCenter anchor’s radio show Wednesday. Simms acknowledged that he can rattle off some bad hot takes, but he didn’t feel like what he said about Hurts and the NFL MVP race was particularly egregious.

“I know I’m wrong sometimes. I get that. I have to make comments and opinions about every subject in football. So I’m gonna be wrong I understand that,” Simms said. “And I have great respect for Jalen Hurts. All I was saying was I didn’t think he deserved to be in the MVP conversation with Mahomes and Burrow and Josh Allen.”

Simms said he thought it was interesting that since Hurts has been kept out of the last two games with a shoulder strain and the Eagles have failed to lock up the NFC East and the top seed in the playoffs, that ESPN has been silent about trying to keep using his words as ammunition.

“All I’m saying is buck up and then bring me on and talk, or give me credit the first week,” he said.

Patrick suggested that maybe Simms should make the short trip from Stamford, Ct. where NBC is headquartered to ESPN HQ in Bristol and try and talk to someone about it. Dan even asked if Chris would have someone from ESPN on his show or podcast, but Simms said it’s never that easy with people from The Worldwide Leader.

“You know how SportsCenter and ESPN is they don’t let any of their employees talk to anybody ever. So I can’t deal with it,” Simms said. “But I’m not the kind of guy that’s just gonna sit back and let them slap me around. You know me well enough now.”

670 The Score morning host Mike Mulligan is being awarded the Father Finnegan Memorial Award from Loyola University Chicago this weekend, and some of his colleagues congratulated him on the air Friday morning.

The award is given “in recognition of outstanding humanitarianism and service to youth through athletics”. Mulligan — a 1984 graduate of Loyola University Chicago — will receive the award Saturday during the Loyola Athletics Hall of Fame ceremony during a game against George Mason.

“Tremendous award,” co-host David Haugh said. “Proud moment for the show. Proud moment for you family.”

“They’re giving me an award for correctly picking the Super Bowl on September 8th,” Mulligan joked.

“That is fantastic,” Laurence Holmes said, while his co-host, Dan Bernstein, continued to say “wow”. “Congratulations. You shouldn’t be embarrassed. You should be proud.”

“I’m being celebrated for being old,” Mully joked.

“That’s not what that award says,” countered Holmes. “It says something completely different.”

The Mully & Haugh host eventually admitted he was appreciative of the award bestowed upon him by his alma mater.

“It’s a good thing. I’m very moved by it. Sister Jean will be there,” Mully said. “She has a book coming out with — I think — Seth Davis.”

“I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

The performance of CBS Sports NFL analyst Tony Romo has been a hot-button topic in sports media circles, especially after a widely-regarded lackluster performance during the AFC Championship Game. Colin Cowherd believes he knows why Romo has regressed.

During an episode of The Colin Cowherd Podcast, the sports radio host claimed golf is the reason behind Romo’s regression.

“Romo wants to be on the Tour. He literally wants to be on the Tour,” Cowherd said. “And what’s the first thing Aaron Rodgers does in the off-season? He goes and golfs, he loves it. Both, by the way, great golfers, especially Romo. But I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

“Tony wants to be on the PGA Tour — but he likes the paycheck from CBS.”

Cowherd also added he hasn’t hired potential employees in the past if they told him they loved golf during the interview process, saying he has a theory that as men age they “get addicted to golf”.

“They’re on PGATour.com, they’re putting in the backyard, they’re thinking about it at work, they’re scheduling a trip to Scotland and they lose sight of their other job,” Cowherd said.
