Why Yates?

Why was field Yates in this podcast? He offers no content and is just a game show host. He reduces the quality of information from Todd an Mel. I’m sure he’s a nice guy, but I don’t like him as an announcer. I already stopped listening to Matthew Berry’s podcast for the same reason.

Predictable

One thing that consistently bugs me about this podcast is how Mel and Todd always seem to
make excuses for QBs, especially ones they overrated in previous drafts. They constantly whine that Sam Darnold “got no help” with the Jets, but when a QB is drafted No. 3 overall they should be capable of making a team better on his own. Kiper in particular always seems to blame receivers for dropping balls as an excuse for poor QB play; I’ll never forget him saying Shea Patterson was a good QB at Michigan but Donovan Peoples-Jones dropped too many of his passes; Peoples-Jones had a good rookie NFL season while Patterson wasn’t even drafted.
