The 2021 NFL season is upon us, and SiriusXM has fans covered with every snap of the gridiron action. All of it kicks off Thursday night when the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers battle the Dallas Cowboys.

Fans of all 32 NFL teams have dedicated channels to listen to all of their team’s games throughout the season. On top of play-by-play, SiriusXM NFL Radio unveiled its slate of shows for the 2021 season.

Former NFL wide receiver Torry Holt is diving into his Rams roots every week on a show focused on the Los Angeles-based team. Kirk Morrison, an NFL linebacker for eight seasons, joins Holt on the show as they break down the week in Rams every Wednesday night from 7 to 8 p.m. ET. Rams legends are also joining the show on occasion to discuss great teams from the franchise’s past.

Tuesday mornings feature a legendary Green Bay Packers quarterback as Brett Favre returns to host The SiriusXM Blitz with Brett Favre and Bruce Murray from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. ET.

Another quarterback is making a return to SiriusXM as well. Rich Gannon hosted shows on NFL Radio from 2009-16 and is back to host The SiriusXM Blitz with Bruce Murray.

The SiriusXM team of analysts is ready to roll for the new 17 week season. The roster includes Hall of Famers Gil Brandt, Derrick Brooks, Tim Brown, James Lofton, and Bill Polian, former NFL executives Mark Dominik and Pat Kirwan. Former players and coaches providing analysis include Alex Boone, Erik Coleman, Charles Davis, David Diehl, Bruce Gradkowski, Todd Haley, Brad Hopkins, Ryan Leaf, Ed McCaffrey, Jim Miller, Torrey Smith, Max Starks, Charlie Weis, and Solomon Wilcots.

The last Sunday of the year without NFL football came and went this past weekend. Now the marathon to Super Bowl LVI in February begins.

The on-air spat between SEC Network host Peter Burns and analyst Ben Watson continues to be bandied about in sports media circles, with 93.7 The Fan hosts Andrew Fillipponi and Chris Mueller discussing the topic Tuesday.

“I’m on Team Burns,” Fillipponi said.

“Forget who’s team you’re on,” Chris Mueller said. “I think you’ve do have to keep the wives and children out of this.”

“What are you talking about, keep the wives and out of it?!,” Fillipponi asked.

“Do we believe this is work or shoot here?,” Mueller wondered.

“Oh, I think this is real,” Fillpponi added, which Mueller agreed.

“Do you think a close fist from Ben Watson hit Peter Burns?,” Mueller asked.

“No, I think he picked him up by the lapels,” Fillipponi said.

When the subject of Watson’s religion was brought up, Fillipponi then pointed out the absurdity of the situation.

“So wait a minute? Because you believe in Jesus Christ you care about your wife more than other people? What are you talking about?”

“I think he might have a shorter fuse and not taking in humor that Peter Burns was giving out,” Mueller said.

“It was an innocuous joke!,” Fillipponi stated. “It wasn’t a joke! Why is it in bad taste?”

Mueller then added the idea of Watson’s wife texting Burns insinuates there’s an inappropriate relationship.

Craig Carton: Booger McFarland’s Zach Wilson Analysis ‘An Embarrasment’

Craig Carton

ESPN NFL analyst Booger McFarland raised eyebrows on Monday Night Countdown this week by saying New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson has never been held accountable for his actions because he was a “young man who grew up with a lot of money”. WFAN afternoon host Craig Carton called out McFarland’s comments Tuesday as outlandish.

“It was an embarrasment,” Carton said. “Someone should ask Booger McFarland if his kids — who grew up with amazing wealth — have accountability in their lives or if having a little bit of money in your pocket immediately discounts the possibility to have accountability. He’s an idiot and we learned that last night.”

“It’s funny that Steve Young was on the other side of it,” Evan Roberts noted. “Because a long time ago, Steve Young criticized Chris Simms because he’s the son of a famous quarterback.”

“You don’t have to invent reasons for why Zach Wilson isn’t playing well,” added Carton. “Just watch his tape. He’s not playing well. Maybe he’s just not good!”

Carton later said NFL reporters “will try to make a name for themselves by putting out a story” about quarterbacks who take responsibility for their teams failures, while Wilson wouldn’t accept the blame.

Peter Burns and Ben Watson shared an awkward exchange during the halftime show of an SEC Network football game over the weekend, and many are still debating whether Watson walking off the set was serious or not. Count part of the cast of The Greg Hill Show on WEEI as doubters.

“That was a a bit,” Courtney Cox said. “That was absolutely a bit.”

“Yeah, unlike the Chris Rock/Will Smith thing, I assume that was a bit,” Hill said. “I can’t believe that Ben Watson is really angry about that.”

“I dunno, man. There’s been a lot of speculation that it isn’t,” Jermaine Wiggins added. “There are people who are very sensitive about you clowning on them or joking with them. Especially with joking about their wife. Some people can’t handle jokes like that.”

After a back-and-forth with Cox about the legitimacy of the joke, Wiggins concluded by saying for some folks family is off limits.

“I’ve learned something in my 47 years on this Earth: be careful when you’re talking about somebody’s wife and their kids. ‘Cause not everybody jokes the same way.”
