Former Pittsburgh Steeler head coach Bill Cowher had strong criticism for the decision by the Indianapolis Colts to name ESPN NFL analyst Jeff Saturday as their interim head coach. Cowher called the move “a disgrace” and “a travesty” on The NFL Today Sunday. The Fan Morning Show on 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh thought Cowher went too far in his condemnation.

“Seems a bit sanctimonious for me, and I love Bill Cowher,” Colin Dunlap said. “He seemed one step away from ripping off a bunch of names that he wanted to see get the job. They broke away from the old boys club, and I think the secrets out that there may be another way to do it and we don’t want to let the secret out.”

“I get Bill Cowher for wanting to take up for coaching lifers there in Indy and he feels like someone deserved a crack at the interim who some have called a drinking buddy of the owner,” Chris Mack added. “I get that willingness to take up for your football coaching brethren but to call it a disgrace and a travesty is a bridge too far for me.”

“There is a little truth to what he is saying,” Dorin Dickerson said of Cowher. “I said last week there are guys on the staff that are deserving. Don’t sit here and tell me that Gus Bradley and John Fox need another opportunity. Talk about some other guys who deserve opportunities. Maybe? Ok. Secondly, the coaching staff is still getting paid. They didn’t lose their jobs. Sometimes when you get rid of a head coach, you clean house. The offensive staff, defensive staff, and special teams staffs still have their jobs. They’re still getting a pay check. Cowher took it a little too far and a little too personal for me.”

    I guess Bill did not find it a disgrace to the broadcasting profession when he was given a newtwork job, even though he had no experience, over thousands of broadcasters who were much more deserving of the opportunity. What a hypocrite.

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.”
