Do it! I dare you!

 

I hope he does. No more 7 yard routes on 3rd and 8.

 

Will miss the leadership and passion.

 

Him and Dez we’re holding the offense back

Not sure about that last sentence. Witten, despite declining skills, was still a good safety valve for Dak. Dez is very talented, but I guess they were tired of his attitude.

Looking forward to hearing how he sounds commentating with McDonough 

McDonough was let go. I'd rather see Chris Cooley do Monday night football.

Witten could still hurt teams but he definitely was beyond his shelf date. Exactly what you said, just briefly leave open Witten to bait the QB into throwing him the ball on 3&8 on a 6 yard route because he won't be getting any YAC.

He was?? Wow. I thought they’d keep him and just replace Gruden after going to the raiders. Have they chosen the guy that will be joining witten in the booth?

Nah I don't think they have named a replacement yet. He was let go the beginning of March.

Bryant's and Witten's days were numbered in Dallas as soon as Romo retired.

Yeah, but with that line and Zeke in the backfield, they converted an awful lot of 4th and 1's. So maybe leaving Witten wide open for 7 yards on 3rd and 8 still wasn't the best strategy...

We'll see how this goes.  I dont recall too many occasions where I heard Witten speak and thought he'd be a natural in the booth.  And then in the booth on the marquee broadcast of the week, at that.

I don't think Witten has the oratory skills to be thrust into a MNF role.  Someone earlier mentioned Cooley.  Gross.  That dude is terrible, arrogant, and has an obnoxious voice.  His entire persona reminds me of Joe T.

Is he Emmit Smith bad? :) 

 

Doesn't matter if he has the skills or not. He's a cowboy. That is all the qualifications he will need for the idiot sports media.

 

Aikman, "Moose", Irvin, Sanders, Romo. Now Witten. The idiot sports media is loaded with former cowboy clowns. What's one more?

 

It's obvious they aren't trying to raise the IQ of the discussion. :P  :dallas_sucks:

 

(Seriously, I do like Aikman, and Romo wasn't bad last year).

Enjoy the broadcast booth, dude. If he's anything like most of his other Cowboy Alum, he'll be anywhere from competent to outlandish and entertaining.

Aikman is the best of the bunch.

.Romo has an annoying voice but his analytical skills are awesome.

Moose was average and boring.

Irvin is a homer and too over-the-top for me.

Sanders was/is terrible.

Emmitt graduated from high school?  Seriously, who signed his check?

 

I expect Witten to be slightly worse than Moose.  He is soft-spoken and kind of boring.  However, the market isn't exactly overflowing with likeable talent at the moment.  Maybe he will last.

If true good luck Witten. You were a worthy opponent and I think a lot of Skins fans respect your skills and sportsmanship.
