Bring back Wilder
Wilder is needed to break up the old guy takes
Fade Dameshek on EVERY Pick
Deducting 2 stars because I’ve listened to Dave for years, and he’s an awful prognosticator. Especially football. His opinions on everything AFC (excluding Steelers) is incorrect. He attempts to grab headlines every year by picking the Chargers or Raiders to win the AFC West...you’ll be rich if you just pick the polar opposite of his takes.
Sal’s great though...no complaints
