“He’s Come In Here And Absolutely Shocked Me”

September 24th, 2010

Revealing that he’s “a big fan” of Mike Francesa, the main man of New York sports radio, Raheem Morris called in for an on-air chat with Francesa on WFAN-AM in New York last week.

Joe’s got the audio below for you. (Warning: Francesa’s accent has been known to annoy millions.)

During the interview, Morris was clearly fired up to be talking to the massive audience of the sports radio station he probably listened to as a kid, and as a college man at Hofstra University in New York.

Raheem dropped some extremely hefty praise on Gerald McCoy.

“He’s come in here and absolutely shocked me with his ability to take it and run with it,” Morris said of McCoy. “You know, I knew he was a good student of the game. I had no idea he would be this concientious this early and be able to play multiple positions, do different things for us, and provide is such flexibility that he’s been able to give us on our front line.

Joe hopes you enjoy the interview.

    annoying accent or not, Francesa is money. Really good interview. Raheem sounds so much more collected then interviews from last year. You go Rah!!

    Francesa’s accent isn’t the worst I’ve heard this week(IN TAMPA). I can handle New York. The Boston(mAsshole) accent is the worst.

    I like his accent Joe, he sounds like my Uncle Vito from Brooklyn.

    I think Raheem has improved in talking with the media this year. For example, I don’t hear nearly as many “when you talk about…” as last year.

    Go Bucs!

    McCoy is proving to be better than advertised. I liked him a DE last week
