Oscar and David are great at being both fans, as well as critical about the 9er franchise. Appreciate off-season episodes for team building the most.

Let’s be real - 99% of fans have no idea what’s going on on a football field. Is the RB good or is it his O-line? Why the heck is that guy so wide open? What adjustments are being made to strategies on both sides of the ball throughout the game? Is the QB making the coach look good or vice versa?...Read full review »

I’ve played and coached for over ten years each, so there are few football pods that don’t feel insultingly stupid to me, but this is one of them. This is the ONLY podcast I ever want to listen to after my Niners lose. Oscar and David help me to intelligently make sense of everything happening...Read full review »

Scarlet jimmies is hot garbage. Scheme month is ungodly dry, not to mention, why are we using an audio only podcast to discuss concepts from film? Seems like a pretty obviously glaring mismatch of a combination. Have you ever wanted to LISTEN to paint dry because watching just got you too fired...Read full review »

2020 Update: The move from SBN is a good one. When SBN started dropping other pods into the feed, it was annoying and dropped the quality of what thy is was. With Oscar & David moving to BlueWire, this pod can continue without the crap being tacked on. BetterRivals remains the best 49ers...Read full review »

As a Redskin fan watching the draft, came here for the Ismael interview. Thanks for the insight!

David doesnt even like his wife she was just appropriately priced according to his positional value cheat sheet.
Dominate Dave via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/27/20
I subscribe to a bunch of niners podcasts and “Better Rivals” with Oscar is by far the best. They definitely are more analytical and breakdown plays and schemes in a very detailed fashion but that’s not why they’re awesome. It’s because they are the most objective. They tell it to you like it...Read full review »

You guys don't sound like brainless hateful reporters. I appreciate that to no end. I can listen to this, ignore the baalke of broken record news feeds, and still be on top of what you are saying. Thank you for not treating us like idiots, while still teaching AND having interesting things...Read full review »

I was born and raised in Eugene, OR. I was not an NFL enthusiast until I started listening to your podcast, when the Eagles fired Chop Kelly. David and Oscar became my football gurus, and I was a born-again fan. Your offseason scheme analysis became a thorough education in football. Not only do...Read full review »

But I can’t do scarlet jimmies. Better rivals has unbelievable information and breakdowns. The best of any Niners podcast out there. But Scarlett jimmies is rough. If it were better rivals only this would be a 5 star review
sweet lil cboy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/16/19
Better rivals is a great podcast. I’ve been listening for a couple years now and it’s definitely a great show. Scarlett Jimmies is terrible! I mean it’s just lazy and surface level analysis. Very lazy, the guy who isn’t the host just provides short and poorly thought out answers. It’s a chore to...Read full review »
iMaster95 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/15/19
They do a good job of not trying to be a half hour podcast and go in depth on topics. But when they do go In Depth it becomes a pro-pff podcast and self congratulating theirselves . They should show more sides to topics. Needs to get their act together. Last podcast said Bradley pinion is good....Read full review »
wwechamps say no via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/29/19
Oscar and David (when available) are absolutely brilliant. I’ve listened to them for years; very knowledgeable and prepared. You’re a better football fan listening to these two. Scarlet Jimmies have been a tough listen so far, I haven’t been able to make it through an episode yet. Might be...Read full review »

So good!
tyjcsmith via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/05/19
Oscar is always insightful throughout his podcast with the occasional guests- but particularly love the episodes with the robin (David) to his batman! Funny at times and classy throughout Keep it up x
Fitz1981 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/23/19
I’ve been a fan for years because of their funny banter and vast knowledge of the game. Their in-depth analysis of football always has me learning something new. Easily the best 49ers podcast out there and best NFL podcast period. Oscar and David have definitely earned a spot on my laminated list!
Major Gripex via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/11/19
For the last month and half the podcast has been less and less about the 9ers and more about Thrones. Their last episode was only 24 min out of 45 about 9ers football that’s including the intro. When they do talk 9ers football it’s filled with skepticism and deceit. A very arrogant tone with...Read full review »

Their discussions are interesting and informative whether it’s the offseason, draft season, pre-season, regular season, or the post season (hopefully “we” will be back in the playoffs soon)!
Dez1117 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/03/19
The quality of this show is far beyond any other Niners or other team specific podcast I've ever heard. I would prefer that the Niners would stop sucking on the field, but having whomp whomp Wednesdays to look forward to eases the pain of fandom.Read full review »

Excellent breakdowns in team moves, recaps and all other 49ers news. I wish Oscar and company would create an NFL news podcast as well, just so I can get their excellent coverage on league wide news as well.
Babdhejajqiwuw via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/25/19
I love when Oscar and David are together. Great chemistry!
El_Puncho via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/21/19
The best sports talk - not just Niners or football, but all sports - I’ve listened to. Oscar (and David when he returns) have a deep knowledge of the game and do a great job of informing listeners in an entertaining way. Can’t recommend highly enough for any Niners fan.
dhd2005 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/09/19
Best 49er podcast by far. Great data and analysis, very fun. I wait for it all week and it’s the only source for heavy data driven commentary that goes beyond the mainstream BS. I’m asking for at LEAST 2 a week, even in the off season! I love it! I need it. Oscar, you ARE the king of NFL...Read full review »

I’ve listened to this podcast for years, but I’m now unsubscribing. Oscar thinks kneeling or throwing up fists for the National Anthem is just great. Oscar is helping to fan the flames of division, which we really don’t need more of in this country.
Baylor49er via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/10/18
Best 49ers podcast by a mile
josutro via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/02/18
Now I have a Facebook and Twitter that follow Oscar and David.. I have an IG too. But please please I have to have to ask to you please change (NinersNation) to Niner Empire or Niner Faithful the original Nation is themf’s across the bay. And as always...Go Niners
Texas Faithful via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/02/18
Has helped me to reevaluate how I actually watch and diagnose football. Very educational, introducing different metrics which I had no idea existed, and at the same time still holds my attention from week to week! Great job guys
angry_western_gull via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/20/18
The guys go into depth and I love the fact they go into sycametics of the game. Very smart when it comes to insight on the teams personnel decisions.
nealpowpow via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/07/18
These guys take the time to really break down the game and apply to the 49ers. Wish I could listen to them everyday. Go Niners!
DBRO1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/28/18
This is the Big Bang Theory of Niners podcast.
Peetyloks via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/28/18
Pure joy
lakers___ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/26/18
This is the best 49ers podcast ive listened to, they usually come with good information. That being said, the bar isnt very high. Not a fan of the humor, smugness, or hosts cracking beers into the mics.
codyajan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/14/18
In-depth 49ers news, tactical breakdowns and inside jokes.
LT 09886 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/08/18
By far the best 49ers pod. First think I listen to Thursday mornings.
Christd999 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/24/18
Oscar and David are still unmissable. Great fun and informative. Good luck to David on his wedding and hopefully for his sake(and his nuptials) we don't trade up and draft Barkley this weekend. Keep up the good work guys. Makes my drive into London that much more enjoyable.Read full review »

It’s refreshing to get info on schematics, and how that relates to current coaches/players...without taking themselves too seriously.
CFreelen via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/20/18
Agree to disagree. Pass rusher FAR more important than CB. Can’t hide from a great pass rusher, you can avoid a great CB. Schematically you can always do things but as fundamental point Aaron Donald or Von Miller >>> jalen Ramsay or lattimore
Adam DO1981 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/20/18
I think I'm pretty knowledgeable about the game, after being a football fan for 40-plus years, but I learn something new in every podcast. My only suggestion: get some female perspective on the show. There are a lot of women fans out there, and we know the game!Read full review »
what_not via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/20/18
Cogent, informative discussion with points supported by researched data vs the usual stream of consciousness emotional ranting one gets nowadays. That they clearly articulate their reasoning and provide background context to their facts really helps to educate the audience. There is also an...Read full review »

Super well organized and detailed orientated show! Wish they made more episodes per week!!
Le&Dro via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/14/18
All jokes aside , great podcasts from these two goofs every week . Keeps you going through the boring offseason .
Joe Montana IS GOAT via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/12/18
Love these guys! Go 9ers!
Ahrue Luster via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/06/18
Really enjoyed ep 231 the advance stats that bolstered your argument for Landry as the 9th pick
Eastside Master via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/06/18
These guys really know their stuff. Good quality, easy to listen to and they are even entertaining in the doldrums of the off season
