Davante Adams, Stefon Diggs mock Booger McFarland for ‘MNF’ screwup

New York Post Sports 2 weeks ago

Booger McFarland’s commentary during “Monday Night Football” certainly left its mark on social media.

The ESPN commentator, who announced the Mexico City showdown between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Los Angeles Chargers, drew criticism from audiences, including two of the NFL’s biggest playmakers, star receivers Davante Adams (Packers) and Stefon Diggs (Vikings).

“Games in this league are lost more than they’re won’ -Booger McFarland,” Adams tweeted, to which Diggs replied, “They might as well let me commentate.”

Other were left perplexed by McFarland’s comments.

“‘Philip Rivers doing a masterful job, controlling the game- throwing the ball, setting up the run. It’s nice to watch a hall of famer work tonight.’ – Booger McFarland, three snaps after Rivers threw a pick, one snap before he threw a pick,” one viewer pointed out.

“This may be my favorite Booger quote yet – ‘He may not be the best Tight End in the league…cause he’s not,'” another shared of Chargers tight end Hunter Henry.

McFarland is hardly the first ESPN commentator to get shredded over his comments. Last year, Cowboys tight end Jason Witten endured a shaky season in the booth. He returned to the Cowboys for 2019 with McFarland moving from the sideline Booger Mobile to the booth next to play-by-play man Joe Tessitore.
