Enjoyed the pod. I get the take on Kapernic. I watched him play at S F under Harbaugh, really played great. That’s what I remember. Jim left and his play declined, check the stats, that’s a fact jack. Better than Mitch ? Probably. Head case ? Probably. Respect your take, just hoping for a better scenario going into 2020 🕊

Wildly overrated.

This guy has got to be the whiniest “man” I’ve ever heard. In this episode, “a QB finds a way” when talking about a ball getting batted at the line of scrimmage. Guess who else that happens to? EVERY QB TO EVER PLAY THE GAME. It happens to Brady, it happens to Brees, it happens to Watson! This is a generous 2 stars. He provides no real football insight or really anything other than your run-of-the-mill pessimism. You’re not edgy, you’re not insightful, you’re a waste of time.
