Derek Wolfe: Pat McAfee Talks About Me Like I’m Batman

“There was no like ‘hey we got a problem cat – there can only be one apex predator.'”

Super Bowl champion and 104.3 The Fan host Derek Wolfe made some headlines late last week after he posted a photo of a mountain lion he hunted.

The story became the topic of discussion on The Pat McAfee Show on Friday after it made the rounds. Later that day Wolfe and co-host Darren “DMac” McKee got a huge kick out of how McAfee and company described the story.

“This dude heard there was a rural town in the mountains over there where local dogs were getting feasted upon by one of these local lions and they didn’t know what was gonna happen next because of how big this lion was,” McAfee told his audience. “And Derek Wolfe, if I read the story correctly, put his f***ing bow and arrow on his back, trekked up some Rocky f***ing Mountains, found this lion in the lion’s home, shot it with an arrow, was gonna put that f***er on his back, walk back into the village and say ‘I got the killer’ or whatever, the thing that’s been f***ing demonizing us, fell down the face of a f***ing mountain while the lion was on his back, allegedly. Falls, gets back up and walks back out of there. You’re talking about, what is this? The year 550? 660? This feels like a story from way back.”

“That’s the funniest take I’ve heard on it so far,” McKee said Friday on The Drive. “That’s really great. Good job, guys.”

At one point in McAfee’s telling of the story, he makes Wolfe out to be the lone person capable of hunting down the big cat. Wolfe said he wasn’t Batman.

“There was no bat light,” Wolfe said. “There was no like ‘hey we got a problem cat – there can only be one apex predator.'”

Wolfe did appreciate how the story was told, and he said for those who want to take issue with what he did, he wanted to make sure people were aware that at least in Colorado mountain lions can be a nuisance.

“Before you pass judgement on me and my lifestyle, maybe go look and see how many cats there really are roaming around Colorado,” he said. “It’s not like there’s 10-15 cats running around. There’s thousands and thousands of male lions running around.”

Eagles Coach Nick Sirianni Calls Out Angelo Cataldi in Postgame Press Conference

“I can’t wait to talk to Angelo on Monday.”

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni’s Monday morning interview with WIP host Angelo Cataldi will certainly be a topic of interest following this past weekend’s NFC divisional playoff game.

Sirianni, in his postgame press conference on Saturday night, mentioned Cataldi by name when talking about Eagles defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon.

“Sometimes I have to hear some things about Jonathan Gannon, and I don’t know if it’s you guys,” Sirianni said in response to a question from WIP Eagles reporter Eliot Shorr-Parks. “Might be more other people. I won’t say names – Angelo — right?”

Cataldi, who will be retiring when the Eagles season ends, isn’t the only host in the city who has called Gannon out when the defense played poorly, but Sirianni said it blows his mind that Gannon critics would have something to say following Philly’s 38-7 victory over the Giants.

“So, every time I hear an answer about Jonathan Gannon, I laugh to myself,” Sirianni said. “As a matter of fact, coaches from other teams ask me, does Jonathan Gannon get shit here? I’m like, somehow, yeah. Like this guy is incredible.”

“I can’t wait to talk to Angelo on Monday,” he added.

The Eagles will play the 49ers on Sunday in the NFC championship.

105.3 The Fan’s Shan & RJ Do Battle With 95.7 The Game’s The Morning Roast Ahead of 49ers vs Cowboys

Sports radio content has fueled the hate between Dallas and San Francisco this week as the Cowboys get set to visit the Bay Area. A joke made by 105.3 The Fan’s GBag Nation made some 49ers fans angry. Gavin Dawson and Bryan Broaddus said the Cowboys “could use an injury” to 49ers running back Christian McCaffery.

Other hosts at 105.3 The Fan took to Twitter after a 49ers fan spread the clip on social media calling the joke “pathetic.” Shan Shariff and RJ Choppy were among them. They argued that it is crazy for anyone to think Dawson and Broaddus were serious.

The vitriol between the two towns played out Friday morning on two Audacy stations, the aforementioned Fan in Dallas and 95.7 The Game in San Francisco. Shan & RJ connected with Bonta Hill and Joe Shasky of The Morning Roast for a quarter-hour of smack talk.

“We’d like to congratulate you guys on still being there,” Shariff said. “We know the rotating door there normally. We didn’t think you’d still be there from last year.”

He then gave credit to Sahsky for contributing his winnings from their last bet to the families and community in Uvalde affected by the Robb Elementary shootings.

From there, the niceties were over. Hill and Shasky went after Shan & RJ’s ratings and Bobby Belt’s intensity. Shariff and Choppy fired back making fun of Hill’s voice.

All five hosts explained their pick for the game. Only Shariff went against his home team, predicting the 49ers to win by double digits. Belt and Choppy didn’t give a second thought to supporting the Cowboys.

Joe Shasky wasn’t buying the confidence.

“It’s gonna be Rangers and Bocci talk Monday when they lose,” he said as the two shows signed off.
