Dudes just chop it up about the stuff I care about in a way I appreciate. No weak-a** stuff, just a couple of buddies talking.
Love the pod. Talk more cowboys
I donât live anywhere close to the Bay Area but love the pod. Always interesting takes and convo. Keep up the good work.
I subscribed, but now I need to delete all the individual segments. Love the show though!
Rams losing 2 SBâs to the Pats, what a bunch of b$&@$#s.I hope Eli & Brady go in the HOF class, and Eli talks some junk on the podium.
Whatâs up guys I originally listened to just the Raiders sections but loved the chemistry so now I listen to the whole show even tho I can careless about every other sports league. When the Raiders leave will they still be covered in the same way as they are now.
Middlekauffffffffff and Habeeeeehabesss question for you, if you had a coach for 10 years would you rather have one who always has you in the playoffs year after year but never wins a Super Bowl, or would you take one who had a roller coaster 10 years has some losing seasons but wins you a championship during his tenure ?
Iâve been listening to the show for about 18 months and have mixed feedback. These two gents are probably the highest quality podcasters that cover the Bay Area. The content and discussions are well thought out and the length of shows are perfect. I appreciate Habermanâs views and unbiased opinions on a vast majority of the topics they discuss. In addition, he is well spoken, conducts his due diligence and thinks before he speaks on unscheduled topics. I believe Haberman and Middlekauf make a good team/duo, but Middlekauf can go off the rails and provide professional opinions without evidence or data from time to time. I believe he brings a decent amount of experience to the show, but his emotions tend to drive his commentary. This ultimately has a negative impact on the show and sometimes itâs difficult for me to listen to. In addition to the emotions, he will cutoff Haberman mid sentence 10+ times a show. Im surprised Haberman hasnât lost his mind yet. Overall itâs a good show, but there is definitely room for growth as podcasters.
Would be a 5-Star if they didnât talk over each other/Middlekauff interrupts Haberman 50 times a pod. Makes it frustrating rather than entertaining sometimes. Great content tho and good dudes.
Still awesome!!!!So, you guys were just discussing raiders wins (4) or lakers make the playoffs. But the fascinating question is whether the Raiders will win more games in 2018 than their current haul of 2019 1st round draft picks (3 as of the date of this post).Repeat question from my previous: With that said and given the raiders trade of Mack to da bears AND Coop to the boyz..,have the raiders just become the Oakland Aâs of football? :)Thanks gents. CraigP.S. I heard Gruden (or was it Davis??) offered billy beane a color swap - green and gold for the silver and black (with a Gareon Conley throw in). But Billy rejected it! What?!!!
Great podcast. Iâve been listening for quite some time and now got my brother hooked on it. I like how you guys keep it real and cover so many aspects going on in the world of sports. Keep talking NFL, despite the teams in the bay being awful
I hear you guys say how good Kyle is but how is he good at being a head coach? Heâs a good offensive coordinator and play caller but heâs a terrible head coach. Itâs time you guys and everyone else stops stroking this man just because he has a great mind for offense. Turnovers his team is the worst! His team is terrible with penalties! These are 2 things that are on the coaching. Well coached teams donât turnover the ball like this theyâre not penalized like this. Adam gase can win games with a terrible dolphins team but Kyle canât win without jimmy and they werenât looking real good this year as it was. Another thing is the players he hand picks are terrible, he went after McKinnon, beathard, richburg among others and theyâre all terrible! He doesnât admit when heâs wrong he doesnât adjust he gets stuck on guys and stuck in his ways. Iâm sick and tired of this team being the new Cleveland browns and they will be until he gets fired. You all need to open your eyes!
Opening Habby Habs is so corny it makes me laugh. 2 great personalities. Good content.
One of the best podcasts when haberman is able to reel in middlekaufs rants about the Raiders...middlekauf obvious ninerrrr ball washer ...but still love the show Habey Habes!!
Should the Raiders make a push for Earl Thomas?
Hey My Guys, Huge fan and rabid listener. Glad you guys are back on and love the hella content being delivered. I live in Chicago and there are rumblings out here after the Raiders Monday night game, including a FLIP.IT article that Gruden is wanting a Derek Carr divorce. What is the possibility that Gruden could move on from Carr? -Hawk Strange
If youâre in California and in need of Bay Area sports these guys are your go to! Every Podcast is the one we deserve! Only thing that could make this podcast better is if they did this on YouTube live or periscope!!!!
HAM is my absolute favorite Pod. These guys are both rockstars, they are always #1 on my must listen.
Two part questionAs you guys stated in terms of player contracts, do owners also have to put coaches money into an escrow account?Do you truly believe that Mark had the money to pay Kahlil? Considering the revenue check (that I assume he has to split with his many many partners) while also paying Carr and Gruden (escrow account). Just seems like deep pockets for a poor owner. John if you believe this to be true, can you please write an article about it in the Athletic. Iâm currently a subscriber but I will buy my brother a subscription for his birthday using /HamPod (plug).
Love the pod you guys deserve to have a national show on TV your takes are spot on and refreshing. Question: The Raiders lost this trade but what if Mitchell doesnât perform at a high enough level to get the Bears where they need to be? The Bears just gave up two first rounders in a stacked NFC. So looks like they are stuck with Mitchell for awhile. Could this be a trade where no one wins, including the fans because itâs possible we never get to see Mack on a big stage. Thanks again guys!
Hey there guys! Coming from a former player at Montana State, Iâd love to hear some of your takes on Big Sky football. I know John went to Cal Poly so I was wondering if you guys pay any attention to FCS ball? Love the shows! They keep me entertained at work
LOVE THE POD GUYS!MIDDLEKAUFF I WILL TAKE $50 ON ND, I WILL VENMO YOU IF THEY LOSE. YOU CAN DO THE SAME WHEN THEY WIN.... DON'T PIE OUT TAKE THE ACTION.
Thanks for making the summer feel even longer ...Love the podcasts and listening to you guys!Do you think all the hype with the upcoming edge rusher draft class will drive the price for Mack down?What is your final record prediction for the 49ers?
Best Bay Area podcast by far
Glad you guys worked things out and got back together. Best pod ever
Best listening for Fans of Bay Area football or basketball. I live in Rochester NY and as a Niner fan I can get all the local feel without paying that ridiculous Northern CA real estate
Love the podcast. Are you guys taking a break till NFL starts or is it over?
We need more!
These two together are awesome to listen to if youâre an objective and all our sports fan
I love this podcast! These two guys bring a lot of joy into my week. Guy Haberman does an excellent job conducting the episodes and always manages to keep things on track while still letting Jon Middlekauff have his fun rants and rambles. The two play off each other very well and it makes for a light, fun sports podcast that still has quality information and good insight into whatever major sport is happening that week. They even manage to sneak in a little life advice now and then. I look forward to their podcasts coming out every week. The two specialize on the 49ers and Raiders. Started following thanks to bleacher report! Canât say enough good things about it. Bridge gaaaaaaang
Awesome show.. love your work ..keep it up from displaced Bay Area native in NY
Too much cursing with their language. They need to keep it professional.
Itâs not a big following overall, but wondering if any teams will take a risk on SP Luke Heimlich? S.L. Price basically summed up the entire story about Luke and the situation. Great show guys, listen every week!
Disappointed when the game canceled them. And even though I like the new show in there time slot, H and M are 10x times better.
Real, honest, insightful and funny podcast about sports. Refreshing to hear REAL sports talk. Hey âI pretend my hair was going to lastâ Middlekauf. Jimmy or Carr for the next 10 years?
Alot has been made of the Jon Gruden and Reggie McKenzie coach/gm combo but what happens to McKenzie if guys like Gareon Conley, Karl Joseph and obi Melifonwu start looking good (maybe vanderdoes too) in a Paul Guenther defense that made Reggie Nelson look like a top safety with him netting 23 interceptions in 6 seasons.
Not a bay area fan, but Middlekauf & Guy always kill it. Great energy & chemistry that keep you tuned in. Hard takes that are backed with logic. Not your usual stale sports show. No BS just two dudes talking sports
Thank you for an honest opinion for Bay Area sports. My pod question: Has Gruden brought more fans IN, or has his moves of cutting fan favorites hurt the fan base? Look forward to a good discussion. @homiecracker on Twitter.
What would you guys think of trading pick #9 and Pierre garÃ§on for Odell âwith a new contractâ Beckham?
Love these guys ! Having been raised in the Bay Area and now stuck in Ohio it is great to listen to solid Bay Area sports talk. I am a die hard Raider fan. Hereâs my question:I can see that 95.7 is doing a lot less Raider coverage as the Raidersâ move to LV draws closer. Is there a new flagship station in LV? Where can a hungry Raider fan stream more coverage of the Silver and Black?! Lots of off season activity and not a lot of analysis out there besides you guys. Also, has Mackâs new contract been finalized ?! Whatâs up with that.
Love the podcast, happy to see you guys continue to grow. Do you think the Bills need to trade up from 12 into 7/8/9 before trying to get into the top 5? I feel like Clev/NYG/DEN/IND would like to stay in the top 10.
These guys know their stuff and deliver it in an entertaining way. Must listen for Bay Area sports fans. Q. Are we seeing more trades b/c coaches are more willing to look for scheme fits than in the past?
Whenever Iâm doing long runs. I donât listen to music. I listen to Haberman and Middlekauf. You guys are awesome.
Big fan guys, love the show. Since downing got new job, raiders still on the hook to pay him? Thanks, keep up the good work. GO RAIDERS!!
What do you guys think of Keke Coutee as a fit for SF 2nd/3rd round target? Fit? Can you do a mock draft of all teams for round 1? Maybe 2? Then just scout out how you think the rest of the draft would fall and good late round targets for fit (any team).
Not sure if you guys touched base on this topic, but how do you think Coach Gruden effects free agents coming to Oakland positively or negatively ?
Guy and John are the most natural duo discussing sports in the Bay Area. Nothing feels forced in the interaction and nothing feels talked to death. Their chemistry makes it feel less like listening to a produced segment and more like you're listening to two of you friends talk sports with you. Their speciality is NFL coverage and Bay Area sports discussion but by no means are they limited to this area; I would feel great saying that they produce a superior product to almost anyone else.Overall, you are doing yourself a disservice to not at least try out the podcast. Sports are discussed with humor, realism and excitement in a way that comes off natural. Give it a try, you will not be dissapointed.Question for Guy and John: Have you guys thoguht about creating more opporitunities for listener interaction outside of the review section? Like a dedicated email address for the podcast?Actual Sports Question: If you have to play Swami and predict the future, what do the Raiders and Niners look like over the 10 year duration of John Gruden's contract?Bonus Basketball Question: Who is the first of the Warriors big 4 to likely leave?
