ESPN Erasing All Remnants of Trent Dilfer’s Stupidity


If you watch ESPN with any sort of regularity during football season, you’re familiar with their practice of hiring washed-up jocks to be “analysts” on their many television shows. One of these such jackasses is Trent Dilfer. Last week, he declared the Dallas Cowboys “the best team in football without a doubt right now,” that their defense was “dominating”, and that Tony Romo was a guy that, “doesn’t throw picks, doesn’t fumble the ball.”

After the Minnesota Vikings 34-3 beatdown of the Cowboys, one of the videos featuring Dilfer raving about “America’s Team” on is nowhere to be found. What remains are blog posts with a missing video embedded like so (links: here, here, and here):

But, as things so often do these days, the video lives in YouTube form. This is almost comical. Merril Hoge can’t believe what he’s hearing, and Dilfer refuses to back down. It’s a shame that ESPN feels like they have to cover the tracks for bad analysis. I’m not going to try to make it out to be some sort of conspiracy, but it seems sort of unethical. He was wrong. We all know it. Don’t try to cover it up. (Also, love this comment on the video by nadrojchingy: “Trent, I would say stick to your day job but i hear you sucked at that too. Last time I saw you play you threw a pick six to Kevin Williams. What a douche”.)
