There’s a reason you’re not supposed to ask “How much worse can it get?” in bad scenarios. That reason is Trent Dilfer.
The former NFL quarterback was in the broadcast booth for the second game of ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” slate, calling a sloppy game between the San Francisco 49ers and Minnesota Vikings.
To say the quarterback play between 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick and Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater was poor would be an understatement. But Dilfer’s in-game coaching of the two — who obviously can’t hear him and probably would turn him off if they could — was as horrendous as it gets.
He bumbled on about a lot of random things, but everything he said he yelled. So Twitter collectively wondered what the heck was happening — and why — so “Why is Trent Dilfer yelling at me?” started trending.
Some were entertained.
Others offered a not-so-gentle reminder.
It would almost be worth dealing with Dilfer for a full game every week if Twitter were this entertaining. Almost.
