    Sept. 10.<div class="m10l m10r"><div class="story_body line ">


    Berman will call the game with analyst and former QB Trent Dilfer.</p>


    This season will be Bermanís 28th as ESPNís host of "Sunday NFL Countdown."

    I know I'm prolly in the minority here, but I like Berman. HE doesn't seem to have a bias toward any team, and he's knowledgeable and entertaining. Although, I think Him and Tirico would be a better pairing...

    We're talking about the legendary Chris Berman from NFL Primetime right?

    It'll be a breeze for him.

    It's hard to be worse than Dennis Miller calling MNF games. That was horrible...

    my only question is will he actually do his "whoop" sound during the game lol? I think he will do just fine.

    Raiders vs chargers have had some good games lately.
    "...two minute drill at the end of each quarter, Ya'know with the wind like this blowing mooch and marshall into the ocean...If that's behind me I think were getting 3 from 70 so holla at your boy. IF YOU DON"T PICK ME THAT'S A JOKE RIGHT?" - Justin Tucker, Ravens kicker

    Complain?, ain't Nobody got time for dat!

    GO GIANTS!

    Haha, that's what I've been wondering; is he going to call the game as his highlights persona or as a proper commentator?

    If he's going to shout "HE COULD. GO. ALL. THE. WAY!" every time someone gets the ball, I'm out.

    Berman's a Bills fan.

    Eh... I'm good with that... they're irrelevant...

    ** and a correction on the first post... he'll do well with AL Michaels.... not Terrico..

    The problem I have with Berman is that he is a major suck up. Any time anyone criticizes a player or play( see Berman at many of the drafts) he is quick to try to smooth it over and to distance himself from the comments.

    Though, saying that he does have the voice and the non-senile Madden charm. Maybe he finds himself in the MNF booth after this season on a permanent basis.

    It was hilarious. Dennis Miller had moments on MNF where I'd be rolling on the ground laughing. Like when he called Dan Foutes stupid several times a game.
