Good show

The show is good. Very Good in fact.

Merbooty ,

Tries to listen to this podcast today

They seem to have opinions which is great but obviously a lot of the info is wrong, need to do better research before coming on the show and talking about a team. Parker is also on the raiders 2nd year guy. Trent is moving to right, Milton killing is staying at left tackle. So get your info right before doing a show.... and trying to analyze a team!
