Mike Ditka previews wrong playoff game on ESPN’s NFL Countdown


It’s been a rough few weeks for ESPN analyst and former NFL coach, Mike Ditka.

A few weeks back, the legend was spotted messing around on his phone during a live shot which prompted fellow host and former wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson to alert him he was on the air. Then, just last week Ditka appeared to fall asleep in studio while he waited for the on-location shot to complete. He was woken up by Johnson.

Now Ditka is at it again – this time previewing the wrong NFL playoff game.

While the crew spoke about Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints playing the Philadelphia Eagles, Ditka begins to talk about the earlier scheduled game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Indianapolis Colts. Johnson attempted to inform him that he had picked up the wrong note card and they were currently discussing the Saints-Eagles game, but Ditka wasn’t having it – suggesting he knew they were talking about the Giants and Philadelphia.

Alrighty then.

    Unfortunately, Ditka was just as attentive when he was coach of the Saints.
