Fantastic insider niner coverage

Great job guys. Best objective and intelligent coverage of the team. You guys should do at least twice a week, everyone would eat it up!

wwechamps say no ,

Lombardis is just tough to listen to

Matt barrows 5 stars, Dennis brown 5 stars.
Lombardi 0 stars. He just provides misinformation too often. Spends most of his day on twitter attacking listeners for questioning him. I would suggest replacing him.

Qniner ,

Getting to the point

You guys are awesome. The fact that you are right there with the team on a daily basis makes this cast great. No hyperbole… just facts… The fact that you guys get right to the point takes this show to another level. I follow you guys on Twitter also. So glad I found this pod.
