  • That loss was excruciating. The conservative play calling on that last drive should be grounds to fire Robiskie tonight. Marcus was playing great. How you don’t either run it straight at them with Henry, or go off play action and let Marcus use his feet is beyond me when it’s third and 2. Instead another Murray shimmy that gets stuffed.Compare that to what the niners did straight after. Even when they were already in FG range they took a shot to the end zone. I know we say it every week but this coaching staff is killing our potential.On a lighter note after your defense of him on last weeks podcast I considered ending my #KeepMccainOffTheField campaign. Then I saw him give away a penalty on a third down and be constantly targeted (and mostly beaten) by the niners offense. So the campaign officially lives on.Hope you guys can give me some optimism for the end of the season.Matt in London
  • I’m convinced that we’re not making the playoffs. I’m done with Mularkey... I don’t see his firing happening until this off season... The offense is atrocious!! Mularkey and Robiske are awful. I laugh when Mularkey throws challenge flags. Let’s wait and see if Robinson makes his money. Not making the playoffs should warrant a change. Extremely frustrated!Bryan Bates
  • Hey Team Now that the season is over and we just missed the playoffs like last year, what do you think the major change if any needs to happen before 2018. 1 Coaching 2 Offense 3 Defense 4 Special Team 5 Ownership 6 Nothing we just needed another year under our belt Thanks, James
