You think NY Giants legend Carl Banks is going to be disrespected and put up with it? Not a chance. As you probably remember from last week, Banks was on WFAN with Brandon Tierney and Sal Licata, but he was kicked off the show over an argument about the play of Kayvon Thibodeaux.

Long story short, Banks was tired of Tierney and Licata blasting the former No. 5 overall pick and he let them know about it. They hung up the phone on Banks, which was a total slap in the face. As it turns out, that show was the last one Banks will be on for WFAN, as he officially resigned from his weekly spot:

Carl Banks resigning from his WFAN spot sends quite the statement

And that's a mic drop if we've ever seen one. At the end of the day, Banks wasn't some random fan calling in to speak with the hosts about Thibodeaux. This is a Super Bowl winner and a Giants Ring of Honor member. If anyone knows about being a stud pass-rusher, it's him.

Oh and let's not forget about the amazing play from Thibodeaux in the heartbreaking 13-10 overtime loss against the Jets over the weekend. Thibodeaux was a total monster, posting three sacks and a forced fumble. On the year, Thibodeaux is among the league leaders with 8.5 sacks.

That's the exact kind of production fans have been hoping for out of the playmaker. Licata and Tierney have taken a step back for their Thibodeaux hate and even apologized for it - they even tried to make things right with Banks too.

However, it was too little too late and now Banks won't be making his weekly appearance on WFAN moving forward. This is a lesson that must be learned by everyone over there. As for Banks, he'll keep on enjoying Thibodeaux making his big-time plays for Wink Martindale and the NY defense. Look for another great showing to be put together this weekend vs. the Raiders.
