I thought she was fine. I also thought it had been done before someplace?

The last 2 years Beth Mowins has been doing preseason  Raider games with Matt Millan. She's  ok.Sergio Dip the sideline reporter stunk. He was so bad (maybe because of nervousness ) that you can't  even joke about it.

First national game. Gayle Sierens did a Seahawks-Chiefs game for NBC in 1987. 

She was fine, at least in comparison with what she had to work with. It's her first NFL game and they pair her with a rookie analyst who mumbled, and a sideline reporter who I thought was special needs until I looked him up and saw that he worked for Deportes. She's not a strong enough play-by-play for that. Even on college, she's more tolerable in seasons when she has experienced analysts like Ray Bentley. One year she was paired with Joey Galloway and it was a shitshow.

yeah the analyst wasn't good, I noticed that. I assumed brand new to the gig. She was ok, didn't distract or anything.

Preseason games must be where I've heard a female alling things before. Or maybe I'm confusing it with the one on baseball broadcasts. Commentators are mostly background noise to me these days.

Beth Mowins will be calling a game or two for CBS later in the season, paired with Jay Feely. They're considered the #8 team at the network, so they'll likely get one or two games, three at the absolute most. They'll be games of lesser importance, going to only a few markets.

The Saints-Vikings game last night was a full house. An odd few seats were open here and there as is always the case, but there were no mass no shows.

It was nice to see the defense keep the Saints in check until the offense got in gear. Everyone's greatest fear was that Adrian Peterson would have a monster game against the Vikes, but he was a nonfactor with 6 attempts for 18 yards.

I was fine with Dipp's little faux pas, but he recorded a video of himself in his hotel room, after the game. Basically saying: "errr...I'm Mexican. Biggest stage of all. The coaches were minorities, too. Errrr..... 9/11!" No need for any of that to enter his retort. Just laugh it off, have some fun with it and don't try to turn it into some "serious" social or political issue.

If you can't laugh at yourself, the world will.

And now big, bad, washed up ESPN folks like Bob Ley are mad at the trolling. I'm sorry Bob, but YOUR employer put him on the air when he wasn't fit for the job. I'm sure ESPN will try to spin this into a "anyone who laughed is a racist" thing since this has totally taken away from their Beth Mowins headlines they craved. But if you're going to turn everything into hashtags and trends, then suck it up when you toss someone out there that should not have been.

Imagine social media if it existed when Eric Dickerson did sidelines on MNF.
