‘Homecomings’ for Dilfer, Young
The Indianapolis Colts-Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ clash tonight on ESPN’s Monday Night Football (8:30 p.m.) might inspire some sentimental memories for analysts Trent Dilfer and Steve Young.
Each is a former Buccaneers quarterback working as part of ESPN’s Monday Night Countdown’s pre-game, in-stadium studio coverage.
Each toiled for years as a Tampa quarterback before winning a championship with another franchise: Dilfer with the Baltimore Ravens, Young with the San Francisco 49ers.
On Sunday, The St. Petersburg Times published an interview with Dilfer about his Tampa playing days.
Last week, ESPN Front Row gave you former Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden’s thoughts before calling his first game in Tampa as an MNF analyst.
