'Phil Simms All-Iron Team: Super Bowl Edition' highlights greatest moments, stories and performances in Super Bowl history on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 3, on CBS Sports

CBS Sports lead NFL analyst, New York Giants Super Bowl XXI MVP and 15-year NFL veteran Phil Simms, along with his play-by-play partner, Jim Nantz host a true football lovers show in unveiling the "Phil Simms All-Iron Team: Super Bowl Edition" on Sunday, Feb. 3 (1 p.m.), prior to "The Super Bowl Today" on the CBS Television Network.

Hosted from New Orleans, home of Super Bowl XLVII, this year's "All-Iron Team" highlights the greatest moments, stories and performances in Super Bowl history, and the players that make up those moments. Simms counts down many of his favorite moments, including the top catches, blunders, gambles and runs in the history of the biggest game in sports. He also delves deep into the history of the game, and tells the little-known stories of the top assistant coaches, most unlikely heroes, players who should have been MVP, and the best teams never to win the Lombardi Trophy. Some of these great stories are told by the players and coaches themselves, including Bill Belichick, John Elway and Sean Payton.

In addition, an unprecedented reunion for the first time ever of Leon Lett and Don Beebe, who shared in one of the most memorable plays in Super Bowl lore, will all be featured. 

"The All-Iron Team" trophy is an old-fashioned cast "iron" signifying Simms' obsession with ironing. According to Simms' mom, Barbara, "As a child, Phil even ironed his football and baseball uniforms."

To this day, he is still committed to his creases.
