It wasn't always that way. The Giants are winners. The Giants are a top flight organization. The Niners are losers still trying to win with a proven loser as a starting QB. The Niners don't excite. Losing doesn't excite people. NFL, Football is by far my favorite sport. I could listen to football conversation all day, but I understand why folks to Giants in this market.
The entire NFL is relevant all year long even when there are no games played. Majority of the people want to hear football no matter how their team is doing. The problem is that there isn't anybody at KNBR air that appears to understand or be able to talk football. The beat writers can talk more about football intricacies than the KNBR radio hosts.
They used to have Lincoln Kennedy every once in a while and those were awesome shows that talked a lot of football in general. Right now, all they have are hosts who love baseball like a cult or Rod Brooks/Tom Tolbert who can talk some basketball but even don't provide solid insight.
On the flip side, the 49ers need to do a better job with presenting KNBR with more athlete/announcer availability.
