By Noah Davis 

If there was any doubt that Bill Simmons’ regular guy fan shtick has run its course (and there shouldn’t be), this line from Friday’s column puts that argument to rest:

“When I called Brady this week to pick his brain for a few minutes, the mere mention of Manning’s name had Brady gushing.”

For whatever it’s worth, it’s one of his better columns in some time.
