Jason Witten crushed for butchering ‘rabbit out of hat’ line
Jason Witten continues to get crushed by fans for his commentary on “Monday Night Football,” which included an extremely embarrassing moment while calling the Green Bay Packers-San Francisco 49ers game.
Witten praised Aaron Rodgers for throwing a touchdown that helped the Packers tie the game with the 49ers at 30 late in the fourth quarter. He tried comparing him to a magician but screwed up his “rabbit out of the hat” line and instead said “rabbit out of his head.”

Fans crushed Witten for screwing up the line:
I can't wait to see Jason Witten pull a rabbit out of his head.

Love it. Jason Witten just created a new phrase. “He pulls another rabbit out of his head.” Out of his head? Why is this man on tv. #MNF

“Pulls another rabbit out of his head.” Witten still in training.

This trick is so boring for Jason Witten. He's seen rabbits come out of heads. pic.twitter.com/13umLZ281G

Jason Witten is really terrible at axioms. “Kick self in the foot” “Rabbit out of the head”

At least he was able to joke about his error:
Aaron Rodgers pulls another rabbit out of his head!!

Witten is in his first year as a broadcaster after playing 15 seasons for the Dallas Cowboys. He is showing how much of a rookie he is, and hasn’t made as smooth of a transition as his former quarterback, Tony Romo, who fans immediately loved in the booth.
