Jason Witten had arguably the most embarrassing moment of his young broadcasting career on Monday night, but at least he has a good sense of humor about it.
After Aaron Rodgers led a touchdown drive to tie the game at 30 late in the fourth quarter of the Packers’ win over the 49ers, Witten tried likening the Pro Bowl quarterback to a magician. He did so by saying Rodgers pulled a “rabbit out of his head.”

What Witten meant to say, of course, was that Rodgers pulled a “rabbit out of his hat.” To his credit, the former Cowboys tight end mocked himself for the embarrassing flub after the game.
Aaron Rodgers pulls another rabbit out of his head!!

Witten has experienced some growing pains in his first season with the “Monday Night Football” crew, and fans couldn’t wait to jump all over him for the blunder. He has some work to do if he wants to become one of the better analysts in the business, but being able to laugh at yourself is half the battle.
