ESPN roasted on Twitter for bizarre John Elway graphic


ESPN’s quirky “Monday Night Football” animations are approaching abstract territory.

During the Titans-Broncos game, the second of ESPN’s Week 1 Monday doubleheader, the network aired a graphic showing key Denver selections from its past three NFL Drafts. It features a man in front of an orange car who is supposedly general manager John Elway in a suit and sunglasses with a No. 7 pin on his jacket, the number Elway wore during his 16-year playing career with the Broncos.

The man is standing next to a sign that says “John Elway” with an arrow pointing at him, perhaps a tacit admission that ESPN was aware the man looks nothing like the 60-year-old two-time Super Bowl champion.

Twitter, as expected, had a field day.

The Broncos lost at home to the Titans, 16-14, after Stephen Gostkowski kicked a field goal with 17 seconds left. He missed three field goals and an extra point earlier in the game.
