ESPN's Broadcasting Crew For Chiefs, Chargers Monday Night Football Opener

For many Kansas Citians this won't matter but ESPN is set to announce the broadcasters for the Chiefs and Chargers Monday Night Football season opener:

ESPN will formally announce today that analyst Trent Dilfer, along with veteran play-caller Brad Nessler, will work the San Diego-Kansas City late game of its Sept. 13 opening Monday night doubleheader.

ESPN has used various analysts — including Mike Golic, Mike Ditka, Dick Vermeil and Steve Young— as analysts in that one doubleheader in its Monday lineup.

Two thoughts:

  • No Mike & Mike is a good thing. No offense to them but, as Pro Football Talk pointed out, they've been painful as a broadcasting duo in the past.
  • The announcers won't matter to many of you because the way to watch a game in Kansas City for years has been to mute the volume on the telecast and flip it to 101.1 the Fox and hear Lenny Dawson and Mitch Holthus.
