A significant note about CBS' broadcast Sunday of the Jets-Titans game at LP Field:

Jim Nantz and Phil Simms have never -- that's correct, never -- called a game in Nashville before, a fact that strikes me as bizarre and should be Exhibit A in any argument about how the networks cater to big market teams.

I've got a call out to Simms and if he's got time to get back to me I'll update this after I ask him about never having been to Music City for a game and about doing commentary on a game where his son is on a roster. Chris Simms is the Titans third-string quarterback.

I've heard that Phil Simms intends to alter his preparation this week in a way that would help him avoid any situations where it could be suggested he could pass anything pertinent about the Jets on to his son.
