“I realized when you add a great player to a team, you are not just adding a great player, you’re adding a whole new dynamic.”

After hearing fans and staff make their cases for weeks, 94 WIP host Angelo Cataldi announced on Tuesday who the station would be endorsing for starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles this season.

“Ladies and gentleman, the Eagles quarterback for the year 2022 will be… Russell Wilson!” Cataldi exclaimed.

Cataldi went on to say that he received two signs in the last day or so that really cemented his choice.

“The first sign came Sunday afternoon in New York City,” he said. “I was watching the Philadelphia 76ers with a brand new superstar James Harden and I realize something, I had what you call an epiphany.

“And I realized when you add a great player to a team, you are not just adding a great player, you’re adding a whole new dynamic. You are taking other players and changing who they are, and changing the way they see each other.”

Cataldi said the other sign was a lengthy in-depth piece on Wilson by PhillyVoice writer Jimmy Kempski.

“It was a doctoral thesis,” Cataldi said of the article. “It was so long and so detailed on why the only choice is Russell Wilson.”

Kempski joined Cataldi and spoke further about the choice, saying he watched Wilson in the first five games of the 2021 season up to the point Wilson injured his finger and ended up missing a month’s worth of games. He said Wilson looked as good in those five games as he had been to this point in his career.

Still, there’s the matter of the trade actually getting done. Wilson has been public about saying he’s keeping his options open and expressing interest in being traded from Seattle.

“It’s going to be a very steep price,” Kempski said. “It’s going to take three first-round picks.”

Cataldi went on to say that perhaps if the Seattle Seahawks were interested in Eagles QB Jalen Hurts, or the Eagles enticed Seattle with another high-level player, that the price could come down slightly. He also said that people are automatically assuming that these three hypothetical first-rounders would amount to superstars in the league. He said there’s no guarantee that will happen.

Regardless, and the fans voted to keep their faith in Hurts, Cataldi has officially spoken on the matter.

“This is the beginning of our new life!” he said.

Andrew Fillipponi: Peter Burns Made ‘Innocuous Joke’ To Ben Watson

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

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.”
