Boomer Esiason: Craig Carton ‘Likes to Hold Grudges’

“I mean, I bought him mackerel when he was in prison. I tried to continue to do that but they wouldn’t take my credit card anymore,” Esiason revealed.

Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton were paired in mornings on WFAN for a decade, so it’s safe to say the pair know each other quite well. After Carton took offense to something Esiason said earlier in the week, the former NFL quarterback pointed out his former co-host has a history of remembering things.

A phone caller asked Esiason if he had any thoughts about what Carton said about him, and Esiason went to the offensive.

“Just so you know, we listen to them and they listen to us,” Esiason said. “Well I don’t know if Craig listens to us anymore. He’s doing some show somewhere — I’m not really sure where it is — but he’s doing a show somewhere in the morning. Anything that’s said here on the radio station gets to us…we love Craig, and we want Craig to do well.”

The question from the caller came after Gregg Giannotti was late to the morning show earlier in the week, and Carton & Roberts were surprised Boomer Esiason didn’t say the last time his co-host was late, he never saw him again, alluding to Carton being “late” for the show after his 2017 arrest for securities and wire fraud.

“He’s keeping receipts, he’s got a long memory,” Esiason said.

“People who have wronged him, he remembers,” Al Dukes said.

“How did I wrong him?,” Esiason countered. “Didn’t I do his documentary? Didn’t I give him nice quotes when he was away? Didn’t I give him nice quotes when he came back? Didn’t I call them up on their first day and say ‘You guys will be number one before you know it? I guess we don’t remember those things.”

“Nothing but support,” Giannotti quipped.

“I mean, I bought him mackerel when he was in prison. I tried to continue to do that but they wouldn’t take my credit card anymore,” Esiason revealed.

“What, is there like a mackerel quota?”, Giannotti asked.

“You could only give — I think — you could only give $300 a month,” Esiason said.

“And you were exceeding that in mackerel?”, Giannotti countered.

“I don’t know what all it entailed, all I know is that for the first three or four times there was no problem and then the next time I went on it kept declining, declining, declining. I have no idea why,” Esiason said.

“Maybe he didn’t want your mackerel,” Giannotti pondered. “Maybe he was like, ‘I don’t need this mackerel anymore. You’ve wronged me. That’s probably what he was saying. Holding a grudge.”

“That’s the thing. He likes to hold grudges,” Esiason concluded. “Then he has to go see his therapist to talk about all that stuff. And I wouldn’t say that, unless he had said that on the radio. And he’s said that on the radio.”

Howie Rose has cut back on his travel schedule as the radio voice of the New York Mets in 2022, but he says that no place is off limits during the playoffs.

“Oh, I’m all-in if they play in Timbuktu,” Rose told Newsday. “A lot of this was designed to make sure that I had enough reserve to be able to handle anything that comes up in terms of road trips.”

Rose, 68, readies for what is likely to be a Wild Card series start to the playoffs and because of their Wild Card status, a win there could mean a trip to Los Angeles for the National League Divisional Series.

“It’s not exactly like managing Edwin Diaz’s innings, but I think that doing the number of games that I have and more to the point, being able to take the breaks that I have, has enabled me to approach the postseason with a clear mind and the full-speed-ahead attitude that you need to have.”

Some analysis made by Sunday Night Football commentator Cris Collinsworth caught the attention of 94 WIP morning host Angelo Cataldi that sent him over the edge Monday morning.

“Joe Banner ripped Cris Collinsworth last night over something he said about Andy Reid in the game last night,” Rhea Hughes said as she detailed Banner’s criticism. “He goes ‘I worked for Andy Reid for 14 years. Cris Collinsworth just said if there’s anything Andy Reid loves to do it’s pound the football.”

“Oh that’s a total lie! Cris Collinsworth is a bozo!”, Cataldi shouted.

Reid faced heavy criticism at the end of his tenure as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles for his reluctance to run the football. The team routinely finished in the bottom half of the league in rushing yards per game during Reid’s 14 seasons at the helm of the franchise.

“He goes ‘I think Cris is usually smart in and his analysis is good but…” Hughes said before Cataldi interrupted by shouting “No he’s not! No he’s not!”, he reiterated. “He’s not smart!”

“NBC needs to learn he does no work anymore,” Hughes added of Collinsworth.

“Nothing! Stop it! Stop it all of you! Stop it now!”, Cataldi concluded.
