Jason Witten is following in the footsteps of his former Dallas Cowboys teammate Tony Romo by jumping into the broadcast booth this season. And much like Romo, Witten’s new NFL broadcasting gig is a pretty high profile one was he will be working alongside Joe Tessitore and Booger McFarland on Monday Night Football.
Also like his former quarterback, Witten makes his broadcasting debut this year as a complete rookie to the TV game. However, unlike Romo, Witten has not been a whiz at broadcasting right out of the gate.
In fact, as evidenced by Witten’s performance during Monday’s preseason broadcast of the Colts-Ravens game, he has quite a lot of work to do. Something that the ever-critical internet certainly noticed.
As you can see in the video above, unlike Romo, who has an uncanny ability to predict what play is going to take place, Witten couldn’t even get a play that ALREADY HAPPENED correct in his analysis.
Granted, it is only the preseason so Witten still has a little time to work out the kinks (though his cohort Booger McFarland seems already in top form), but until he does he might want to stay off social media.
Welcome to broadcasting, Mr. Witten.
