Trent Dilfer


I love blogs. I like Deadspin, and I am in touch with the current resentment that the progressive sports fan feels towards ESPN. I was like 10 years old wearing my 9 jersey, and was darn nearly in tears when Eddie George got mugged and Ray Lewis took the ball the other way. I hated Trent Dilfer, and thought that the entire thing was unfair and absurd. I now think that Trent Dilfer is the hands down, unquestionably, best analyst that ESPN has to offer. Possibly the best guy around. Before I go further, I want to make one disclaimer...I have never put on a set of football pads. I am an active college baseball player, and darn good poker player, am in touch with competition, but my x and o knowledge of football is subpar.

I participate in the Jon Gruden drinking game on draft night. I listen to whatever 6th string CBS crew they trot out there every sunday from my Applebee's in bumfuck PA. I listen to Jaws talk about his film work, and watch all of the ESPN conglomerate's variety of shows in passing. Frankly, I believe that most of the people they offer are terrible. Spoiled wide receivers are just not good analysts. TJ is kind of a dinosaur at this point, and Ditka is too. I like Eric Mangini, will try and listen to Bill Polian, but the majority of their analysts suck. Golic, Stink, Hodge, and whoever else are not guys that I find useful or insightful.

Last night's broadcast was outstanding. Trent Dilfer was prepared, discussed his interviews, yes he likes Matty, but that is good for the broadcast. Every throw that Jake made, Trent offered good insight and analysis. He spoke about how Jake is often accurate with still targets but struggles throwing the ball to empty space. He broke down the pump fake, discussed both big plays by 13. I was curious what you all thought of this. I know the MCM twitter feed did not like the Hasselbeck love fest, but was the stuff that Trent was saying intelligent? Is it good to learn from? What do you think? What football guys are good to listen to? Good to learn from? I have minimal access to NFL Network.

Take Care.

Best
