At this point, Jason Witten probably wishes he hadn’t retired from playing in the NFL. The hits he has been taking from social media for his work on Monday Night Football may not hurt as much physically, but they are no less intense.
If he wasn’t rich, famous, and currently holding one of the most coveted jobs in the world of sports I would almost feel sorry for him. But bro knew what he was getting into when he signed up for the MNF gig. If he didn’t have the chops to do the job he should have passed and started out broadcasting somewhere less visible. And speaking of should have passed, how on earth did the people at ABC think Witten was anywhere near ready for such a high-profile broadcasting job?
Because in what has now become a weekly occurence, those watching Monday Night Football expressed their wonder and displeasure about something Witten said while trying to analyze the game.
This Monday night, during the Texans vs. Titans game, Witten inexplicably called the Texans’ offense a “pro-style offense.”

That was all it took to send Twitter off to the races yet again…
