ESPN Facing Major Criticism For Making Fun Of High School QB On ‘C’mon Man’ Segment (VIDEO + TWEETS) (twitter.com)

ESPN is facing some heavy criticism for a segment it aired before its Monday Night Football game between the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears.

Every week, ESPN’s analysts do a “Come on, man!” segment where they basically call out different players for making dumb mistakes.

This week, a high school football quarterback made the lowlight reel because he accidentally kneeled down before the clock hit zero. The premature kneel allowed his opponent to kick a game-winning field goal as time expired.

Moss as well as the other analysts faced heavy criticism online:

The school’s head coach called out ESPN:

“It’s disheartening to see ESPN run a segment like this on a kid. I as HIS HEAD COACH take full responsibility. Any criticism needs to be directed towards me,” he tweeted.

The quarterback spoke on it as well:

“I took my eye off the clock. However, criticizing me off of one play does not define me as a quarterback. I am much better than that! I love my team and my coaches! Thanks for having my back,” he wrote.
