Following are excerpts from the show.
(ON RAVENS QUARTERBACK JOE FLACCO): Beuerelin: One of the most important things with him, which people knock him for, is his lack of emotion, his lack of energy out there on the football field. I admire the consistency. No matter what the situation is, he shows up. He is cool. He believes in himself. The guy does not get rattled no matter what the situation his. Simms: If he wins the Super Bowl you know what his nickname is going to be? Joe Cool. (ON FALCONS QUATERBACK MATT RYAN): Simms: I'll blame him if I think it's his fault. I’m not afraid to say that about the quarterbacks. It’s tough competition. These guys can't be perfect... If you are going to be a daring player like he is, you are going to throw some interceptions and have some mistakes. (ON THE HARBAUGH BROTHERS): Simms: I think they are the exact same guy, it's just that John hides it a little more. You shut that door, they are both tough as they can be, ruthless. John doesn't show it to the public like Jim does.
