Nessler, Dilfer To Call Raiders-Broncos On MNF

For the second consecutive year, Brad Nessler and Trent Dilfer will call the second game of ESPN’s Monday Night Football doubleheader on Sept. 12 between the Oakland Raiders and Denver Broncos.

Nessler will make his third appearance calling play-by-play for MNF. During the college football season, Nessler will work alongside Todd Blackledge and he’s the new voice of the NFL Network’s eight-game package.

Following the Radiers-Broncos assignment, Dilfer will resume his role as studio analyst and will appear on Monday Night Countdown alongside Steve Young and Stuart Scott during the 2011 NFL season.

Anything beats the days of Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic in the MNF booth – my ears are still recovering from that failed experiment.

Hide Todos. Isiah Thomas Wants Back to New York

“Isiah Thomas thought he would be dead by age 20, so at 49 he offers no apologies for betting on himself. Exiled in Miami, haunted by his proximity to LeBron James, Thomas embraces his articles of blind faith like one would a baby in a storm.”

And thus begins a crazy lede to Ian O’Connor‘s crazy story.

Isiah Thomas, the man who got himself run out of New York on the heels of a sex scandal after destroying the Knicks, wants back in Gotham.

He’s currently coaching the Florida International University, dreaming of returning to Madison Square Garden. As he tells it, LeBron James would be playing in NYC if Thomas was still with the Knicks organization. He defends some of his more terrible personnel decisions while general manager with the argument that he was recruiting players who James liked.

Thomas, who almost returned as an consultant to the Knicks before someone realized it might not be a good idea seeing as he was a college coach and all, clearly has his heart in New York. His head, however, might be in the clouds.

But please just go read the story.
