Giants great no longer on weekly radio spot after being hung up on by hosts

A conversation between a former New York Giants linebacker and two New York radio hosts turned bitter last week, as Carl Banks was defending the play of defensive lineman Kayvon Thibodeaux.

Banks, who is the color commentator for the Giants on WFAN, was hung up on during his weekly spot with Brandon Tierney and Sal Licata last Wednesday.

Banks told longtime Giants writer Gary Myers that he “resigned” from the spot and informed station management of his decision on Tuesday.

Thibodeaux had three sacks against the New York Jets on Sunday, leading Banks to post a zipped-mouth emoji. He has been criticized in the past for a lack of motor, but his stat line does not seem like that is an issue – his 8.5 sacks this season are tied for the third-most in the NFL.

Banks won two Super Bowls with the G-Men and began broadcasting Giant games in 2007.
