Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Brandon Graham joined Angelo Cataldi and the Morning Team on 94 WIP on Wednesday for a segment in-studio, and Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni called in to check in on Graham.

Sirianni was introduced as Nick in South Philly.

“Hey this is Nick in South Philly, some people refer to me as coach too, that’s my nickname. So either one. Either one you want to do, B.G.,” Sirianni said. “B.G. are you coming in to work today?! What time are you going til today?!?”

Joe Giglio, who was filling in for Angelo Cataldi, said they were thinking of keeping Brandon Graham around after how well the last hour of the show went. But Sirianni made it clear that Graham needed to be at the team’s complex later.

“B.G. better be there, we need him there!” Sirianni said. “Someone called in and said he’s the heart of the team. He is the heart of the team! We need him here for work today!”

Graham understood the assignment, and reassured his head coach he would be showing up.

“Hey coach you know I’m on my way,” Graham said. “I ain’t gonna miss it for nothing.”

With Angelo Cataldi not working Wednesdays this year, WIP has used the opportunity to bring multiple local celebrities in. Anytime that celebrity is an Eagle, Nick Sirianni has used it as an opportunity to check on their commitment to the team.

Two months ago it was Jason Kelce in the 94 WIP studio. During that appearance, Sirianni called into say that if Kelce were to end up as Cataldi’s permanent replacement, there would be a regular visit with the Eagles’ coach each week.

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.”
