Thank goodness. Get him off MNF. I hope he plays well for the Cowboys, also.

The happiest folks are viewers of ESPN on MNF that do not have to listen to his commentary. He belongs on the field, Jason Witten!!! :)

I'm 100% all in on Pat McAfee replacing Witten on MNF.

Mistake if you ask me.  He retired at the right time.

We read that the older players often say one big reason they retired was how much pregame prep it took as an older player. Warming up, stretching, taping, etc. That is easy to understand. Witten must be a rare physical specimen to be willing to back to that routine.

Yeah I don't find McAfee entertaining, so no thanks on him doing MNF.

I believe that Witten is "back with the Cowboys" as a graceful way to leave the broadcast booth. I get the sense that he did this so that it appears that he left broadcasting to return to playing.  That way he won't have "let go by ESPN" on his resume. He probably will not play for the Cowboys this year and will retire before the season. JMO

Bring Peyton in, he would be a great analyst. He isn't a play by play guy but he can be like a Romo.

I could listen to peyton break down plays for days lol

Peyton is a HOF qb, multi millionaire and business owner.  I don't see him coming back to the NFL unless it is as an owner.  Everything else would b a huge step down for him.

Maybe Monday night football will be almost watchable again?

I watch most of the NFL games without the sound on anyway so it don't matter to me.  I wish they would just go back to reporting what they see on the field. Not their 'color' commentary.

Thought this was a joke when I first heard about it. The wife and kids must be the driving force behind his return.

I don't see how it's a step down.  A new job wouldn't take those things away.  

 

That said I'm not convinced that he really actually wants to do those things.

I think you are right although I think he'll play next season.  Mostly because him retiring before the season even starts would make it almost too obvious.  So he'll have to go out there and play one more season.  Maybe then he will try to move into coaching or something.

 

But I think he realized he wasn't very good at the broadcast booth and I think people making fun of him online probably got to him a bit so he'll give football another year and then try something different.

I don't know if this is good for the Cowboys or not.  

He'll be taking up a roster spot and snaps from younger guys for the future.

He wants to do something, apparently. And the one thing he's actually done in any official capacity so far is the ESPN Detail videos, which indicates some level of interest in producing content and breaking down games, if not broadcasting. 

 

Difference between those videos and being on MNF is that he can do those videos from the comfort of his own home, more or less on his own schedule. No production meetings, no travel required, no MNF audience/microscope.
