Mike Francesa responded Friday to some insults hurled at him on Twitter by former Giants defensive tackle Damon "Snacks" Harrison.

On Thursday, Harrison called Francesa a "senile old man." He also said Francesa complimented him after he signed autographs for his kids for $4,000, but that the sports talk host's attitude toward him changed after he declined to appear on his show.

After a caller brought up Harrison's tweets, Francesa said: "He's become a clubhouse laywer. The Giants got rid of him after bringing him in and he had an All-Pro season. He became a guy who had talked and talked and talked, and the Giants dumped him. The guy was a great guy when he first came in the league, and he changed. That's the bottom line."

Francesa explained that he hired Harrison to appear at a function for a "school of kids" and that he was great with the children.

"He can call me anything he wants," Francesa said. "That's OK. He can't take any criticism. He can't take the heat.

"I'll tell you this: When he has a career as good as mine, he can talk. Because I've been doing this 35 years, and let's see which one of us is in the Hall of -- I'm already in the Hall of Fame. Let's see what Hall of Fame he gets into.
