im pretty surprised how poorly the Viking are playing
FWIW, Dilfer defended the Pats post-Deflategate more than probably any other former player. He openly called out Ray Lewis on the air, pointedly telling him that the 2000 Ravens SB team was engaging in a whole lot of stuff that was worse than footballs being a fraction of a PSI light.
I don't like him as an announcer, but not because of a lack of knowledge. The guy was a notorious workaholic even by NFL QB standards. He just had virtually no talent. His physical gifts sucked, and he couldn't process the entire field in a fraction of a second like the great pocket passers can.
Similarly, I don't like him as an announcer because he seems to feel compelled to overexplain and/or oversell everything. His knowledge is on point though, I really liked where he dissected Kaepernick's improvement as a pocket passer earlier. If he could learn to be more selective about that, plus stop trying to oversell mundane moments in ****ty games, I think he would be a good announcer.
Basically, I think he's running into the same block as an announcer as he did as a player: he has no natural feel or talent for what he's doing. Which is a shame, because he's clearly put in the research and knows what he's talking about.
Sounds like you're using an aspect ratio that's stretching the imagine. There should be a setting on the TV you can adjust.
4:3 aspect ratio on a widescreen TV will oftentimes cut off the top and bottom of the screen.
this may be the most boring game of the weekend
Cable box is in 16:9. It's just a tiny bit that's being cut off at the bottom. I can see the score, time, down fine. I just checked the options and it's in the normal setting. the other settings only zoom in more or squeezes the picture to make it look like 4:3.(an odd setting) Must be the feed from the channel or cable company.
Carlos Hyde looks awesome and Kaepernick looks a lot better than he did last year.
Man this game is exactly how many predicted, a big pile of poop, this matchup doesn't deserve a Monday Night, specially the first MNF.
Seattle x Rams
Lions x Chargers
Both better choices.
Man, the 49ers' FG team sucks, every PAT is going to be a harrowing experience from the looks of it.
Okay yeah it must be. That's a bit frustrating.
I don't think the MNF late game is really considered a prime draw, since most of the east coast is asleep right now.
If watching in HD, make sure cable box is set to an HD resolution. Also, some TV's allow you to manually adjust the horz and vert height. Check settings for that.
You know McDonalds is in a weird place when they have to take out whole ads just to say "our stuff is actually made out of the stuff we say it's made out of".
Berman is so hard to listen to.
mangini is hated around here but he can coach defense.
all the Dlineman standing up move from SF
Whenever i see their billboards that say made out 100% real beef, I say to myself why should you even have to advertise that shouldn't it always be 100% lol.
Well that was fun. Not.
They have to let you know that there's no sawdust and pig scrotum, I guess.
What I learned:
Trent Dilfer really likes the 49ers.
i actually didnt mind him or berman tonight. They come off as more of a cheesy comedy duo than football commentators at times, but i think it actually made a pretty lackluster game more interesting lol
Surprisingly good chemistry between the two for guys that arent traditional commentators. i bet theyd be great at calling WWE matches.
