Makes my ears bleed. More cringe worthy moments in one show than I hear on other shows in a year.

Don't the station execs actually listen to the show?

ESPN please go back to more national programming!

It's almost as if he was hired for his resume, without anyone at the station ever hearing him speak.

Wow I thought I was the only one, and Bo I agree its more his resume is why he is on the radio. He is just beyond awful and painful to listen too.

His heavily accented speech notwithstanding, I just don't think Dat's insights are very useful or interesting. I had high expectations when I heard the station was bringing in someone who spent years playing college and pro football in this state. He's clearly not plugged in to either of the programs he played at anymore.

I preferred his predecessor, Chris Duel. Chris never played college or pro football, but at least he was entertaining.

Chris turned his show into the "April Ancira/Look at who I hang out with" show and I have a feeling that's why he was let go. He was a thousand times better than Dat though.

Dat doesn't only mispronounce words, he mispronounces words while using them in the wrong context because he obviously doesn't fully understand what they mean. It's not a once in awhile thing, it's basically every sentence. I agree that his "insights" are grade school material.

It's bad enough when Jason and Dat are bantering back and forth but when Dat has to interview a guest
I feel bad for the guest because there are long pauses after Dat's questions because the guest is obviously trying to figure out what he's trying to ask them, and I feel for Jason because he's got to be shaking his head wondering why ESPN did this to him.

I'm a sports talk radio junkie and the choices in the afternoon are horrible. With all the national talent ESPN has, to be stuck with the Blitz is more than disappointing.

I agree with every listed above; But it's not like Jason is much better.
I haven't stopped by their program for several months now because all it took was listening to a 15 minute segment and their both just plain awful.

And the guy on the afternoons for Ticket 760 is equally as bad.
I don't understand how that guy still has a show

Afternoon Sports Talk radio in San Antonio is just plain turrible

He works cheap, I assume. Geoff Sheen's over-reliance on phone calls stands in stark contrast to Mike Taylor's tendency to avoid using them during the morning show there.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Chris Duel end up in that afternoon drive slot on Ticket at some point. He's working at Clear Channel again.

I love the show. Dat was an outstanding PLAYER that brings good insight to the game of football unlike 99% of talk show hosts that have never put on a jock strap a day in their lives. So the guy has an accent... I thought San Antonio was a dynamic city accepting of all cultures?

For me, it's not about not welcoming diversity or the listening challenge added by his thick accent. Not at all. It's about the lack of value that he brings to the conversation. I'm saying that I WISH it was worth the effort to listen to his words. It hasn't been.

IMO Dat is less entertaining to listen to than the amateurish "Sports Grind" show that runs from 2-4 on Ticket 760. There's plenty of diversity on that show. How do you think his show compares to that one, SASUX?

I was hoping there was a "NOT" at the end of sasux's comment. In any case, I would rather they bring back the Thompson Brothers. They were entertaining! btw, the Thompson add for a Lawyer is one of the brothers right? It sounds just like him. I get Jason and Rob confused.
