Bill Cowher raised eyebrows Sunday during The NFL Today after he condemned the hiring of Jeff Saturday as the interim head coach of the Indianapolis Colts. Many were quick to criticize the former Pittsburgh Steelers head coach, but colleague Boomer Esiason defended Cowher during Friday’s edition of Boomer & Gio on WFAN.

“You got The NFL Today on Sunday. On the last NFL Today, Bill Cowher was trashing the Jeff Saturday hire. Called it a ‘disgrace to the coaching profession’,” Gregg Giannotti said. “There was some blowback there from Coach Cowher’s opinion there. One of them coming from Pat McAfee — who’s also a Pittsburgher — and he said ‘Bill Cowher, shut the f— up, dude’. He also got some criticism from malaprop king Christopher ‘Mad Dog’ Russo. Will Bill Cowher on The NFL Today address his critics at any point and take ’em on head on?”

“Not at all,” Esiason said. “Not that I know of. There’s no reason to. You give your impassioned opinion, and I stand by coach Cowher’s opinion. I’ve worked with him for so long. I know who he is, and I know what the NFL means to him, what he means to the NFL, how he views coaches, and how coaches view him. If there’s anyone in this world that has the right to say what he said last Sunday, it’s him.”

“The reason he would address it — to me — it really would be interesting if he at some point was like ‘Just gonna take a couple of minutes here to slap around Pat McAfee. Little punk-ass punter. Prick’,” Giannotti said in his best Cowher impersonation. “You know, something like that.”

“‘Kiss my gold jacket ass’,” Esisason said.

Giannotti then continued his impersonation of Cowher by saying “When you show up in Canton, then we can talk”.

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

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.”
