Jason Witten was beloved during his tenure as a tight end with the Dallas Cowboys. Now that he’s moved into the booth as part of ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” broadcast team, however, those warm feelings have been replaced by the cold shoulder.
It’s been a common theme throughout the first weeks of this new season. And on Monday night as the Denver Broncos hosted the Kansas City Chiefs, fans all over Twitter chimed in on what they saw.
Jason Witten just said "he's got Kelce!" when Kelce wasn't even remotely open lmaaooooo

Though, some are willing to cut him a little slack, at least.
