I’ll admit it, the gradual zooming out of Witten’s face and reveal of each letter in Jason Witten’s name was inspired by the opening sequence "Alien." Can you blame me? It was a suspenseful movie, and that’s the tone I was seeking to set. Inspiration brews from a myriad of sources.
Ah Jason Witten… one of the very few legitimately good things to come out from the Parcells’ years. I still think Novachek is better, but that’s mostly because no tight end a big as Witten should be pushed out of bounds and tackled so easily. It’s just shameful I tell you... Shameful!
