    Francesa in the midst of a classic rant on the G-men's "performance".

    "Despicable"

    "Giants are a low-level mess"

    compared it to the bad old days of 1964-80.

    “Defense wanted no part of the competition ... secondary did not try ... giants allowed fifty — 5-1 points, 50! This is the GIANTS!”

    He is ok if they pull Eli

    How would you ever take a salary for that game! Give it to charity ... this is an embarrassment

    He should ask Opie that question.

    Although relatively speaking Eli got off light in the rant.

    Have to give Mike his due ... he is the master of rants ... no one else is close and no one may ever approach him.

    He is benefitted by the City, of course ... but he is a genius channeling the aggrieved, blue collar fan sensibility ... and the audience always runs with it. The calls should be epic today

    Blue collar/white collar or no collar

    anyone watching that game understands the G-men took the collar yesterday

    they quit in that game.

    and that rightly piss off fans.

    Well considering it's never Eli's fault for anything, is this really a surprise?

    Francesa does defend Eli, but he has cooled his ardor over the past year or so, and no longer gives an unqulified "yes" when asked if Eli's a HoF QB.

    I don't think this season or yesterday's game is on Opie. He played poorly but IMO he got no O-line, no receivers and now the D (supposedly one of the best in the NFL) has quit/in semi-open revolt.

    And the coach? He looks for scapegoats (Eli) and seems to play favorites (OBJ) that sends all sorts of mixed messages, and has seemed to FUBARed the G-Men.

    Off to the races, even mentioned that his driver - a rabid Niners fan - remarked that the Giants could not lose to SF.

    Calling for Jenkins to be dumped, and McAdoo fired mid-year. 'Don't want to look at it anymore.'

    'Lucky they didn't leave him on the tarmac.'

    'I don't wanna hear from anyone on that defense.'

    'Niners QB coulda played in a tuxedo yesterday...Giants linemen were BACKING UP as he ran into the end zone.'

    Top form.

    and he's right if the Giants play with this level of intensity against KC with weapons they have it will be brutal and (from my perspecive) must watch TV.

    A caller actually asked Mike if the Giants would call Kraft for permission to speak to Belichick about being head coach. I laughed.

    Story resumes Monday morning 9AM after the SB.

    I wonder if Josh McDaniels, with a shot at new toy in Darnold, might be interested in one of the top HC jobs in football..

    Towards the end of the show I was driving home and almost veered off the road when he said this. He said Travis Kelce is the premier pass catching TE in the NFL. Not just once, but he said it again about 10 minutes later when talking about how great the KC offense is. Never mind the fact that Gronk in a down year production wise still averages more YPC than Kelce and has as many TDs.

    This is why Mike is a master troll. Even while you are hate listening to his fan rage, he can still get you to take the bait.

    This is, of course, nonsense, and for no particular reason (and this happened with Graham a few years ago) ignored half of Gronk's value.

    In other words, expert troll

    Simms turned them down? The Kim Jones and Adam Schien turned them down? I really wants Kim. Simms would have been a never. Well, looks like no WFAN afternoon time for me, bummah.

    Well played... Dog!

    This is a bad sign for sports radio. Is this the best you can get? Minus Kim Jones, the rest of the turn downs are garbage (Sid?) that are best left to cable. Who is the Adam Schein fan? Is the background on his CBS SportsNet show designed to cause seizures? Yet, the background is still better than anything he's ever said.

    The real question to answer is what is next for Mike. He's not retiring.

    A pretty motley roster to select from aside from Jones who is terrific. I'd rather they move Joe & Evan into that slot than this 3 headed garbage monster.

    I had heard Kim Jones turned down the job and was a little surprised that 1) she was offered it and 2) she said no. I thought she was pretty good and usually pretty well informed, and articulate. Chris Simms is terrible.

    Carlin, Bart and Maggie.

    just flows off the tongue.

    3 in a booth?

    Because that format works so well.

    It might be fun to see the internal battles and backstabbing to see which of the 3 gets squeezed out/pushed our first.

    I wonder if the success Kay and the 2 other guys has opposite of of Francesa is leading them to the 3 person booth? Radio is a real copycat industry.

    I appreciate they're trying to set up a more diverse show (in terms of color/gender but also in terms of topics that each of the hosts is interested in), but...Bart fucking Scott?

    With Scott on board (and Simms and Schein being in the mix) what are the chances this show will be simulcast on CBS Sports Network?

    Mike's live show at LIU Post is awesome to listen to. Guests up to now have been Terry Collins, Jay Wright, and now Bill Simmons. Bernie Williams' band has been playing.
