Tony Romo is going to have a Big Problem in his jump to television.
Romo is very handsome and I’m sure he knows the ins & outs of the NFL – but he is polarizing. Let’s face it, if you aren’t a Dallas Cowboys fan, you probably don’t like Tony Romo. He is pretty much a joke, or in today’s day and age an internet meme. Can Romo even string together a complete sentence?
This is the interloper for which you usurp Phil Simms? Phil Simms went 22 for 25 in a Super Bowl (with 2 of his 3 incompletion being drops by receivers). Tony Romo botched a snap in a playoff game.
Tony Romo is a neophyte. He doesn’t know what he is doing…Yet. Give him a few years on the C-Team. Romo needs to spend some time in Triple-A Ball before he makes the Major Leagues.
In a few years Tony Romo may figure out how the TV side of the operation works, but to put him in the #1 spot with Jim Nantz out of the gate is a big jump for a guy with 1 Playoff Win.
He will probably break his collarbone in Week 1.
