Not for the faint of heart

I’ve been a fan of the podcast since the beginning and never miss an episode. The hosts have their quirks (as do we all) but the info they put out is solid. If you’re the type of fan that likes to bury your head in the sands of positivity, look elsewhere…Oscar and David provide brutally honest (and hilarious) assessments of where the Niners need work. It’s by far the best SF pod out there and I’m digging the new bi-weekly format!

NoCal whining be damned!

This podcast generally rocks, but today’s critique of Lance’s second start felt lazy, out of context, and mired in a culture of complaint. By the end of the game, Trey’s performance had risen exponentially from the start, lifting the offense far beyond what you call his ‘incremental’ progress. Trey’s potential for rapid growth was plain to see.

Could be better

Consistently come back to this pod and consistently it reminds me why they are not in my rotation of podcasts on 49ers.
