What did WFAN morning man Boomer Esiason think of the breakup of "Mike and the Mad Dog?"

Here is what he told me at the CBS pre-season NFL luncheon Tuesday:

"I'm not surprised at all, and I don’t think anybody at the station is. The longer we were there, the more we knew of the tension that was supposedly in the building.

"I love Chris Russo. I loved working with him on Westwood One, the 'In the Huddle' show we did together. I think he’s an immensely talented guy. Now, I don’t know if I’ll be able to find him wherever he’s going, but the fact is he’s a great listen and I loved working with him.

"He is an opinionated, funny guy not afraid to laugh at himself, and I’m going to miss him."
