Growing pains for Jason Witten in the broadcasting booth might last all season long, whereas his former teammate Tony Romo made the transition effortlessly.
During the MNF game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Tampa Bay Bucs — fans took to social media once again to complain about the former Dallas Cowboys tight end and how he is so awkward and not a natural while broadcasting games on ESPN.

Jason Witten might be a super nice guy. But he’s awful at this.
Romo changed the game forever.

I don’t know if there is a worse announcer right now than Jason Witten. I feel like I’m watching this game with Captain Obvious sitting next to me. Now, Booger McFarland is another story…please give him the entire show to himself.

Jason Witten on MNF just said that the NFL went "too far left wing" with its new rules protecting the QB… #shutupandheadtrauma

Jason Witten has been so bad in the booth for MNF, but he just called all the roughing the passer penalties… “too left wing”… get this man off the air

Jason Witten is hilariously bad in the booth… what a disaster of a MNF crew. Mike Torico and Gruden are severely missed.

Jason Witten carrying water for NFL owners on MNF should not be surprising, but somehow it is to me

Drink every time Jason Witten says "throws him open". You'll be hammered in 15 minutes #MNF
