Sports World Reacts To Recent Tony Romo Update

As a player, Tony Romo rose from an undrafted quarterback to become the starter for the Dallas Cowboys. His popularity lent credibility to his role as an analyst for CBS Sports’ NFL coverage. The four-time Pro Bowler’s stock grew when it seemed like he had a crystal ball at the broadcast booth by guessing upcoming plays correctly.

However, his job looks to be in limbo due to a decline in his performance. That’s why network executives reportedly met with the one-time All-Pro before the 2022 season, but it did not go according to plan.

The New York Post’s Andrew Marchand also reported that CBS color commentator Jim Nantz, CBS Sports Chairman Sean McManus, and NFL game producer Jim Rikhoff.

This development fostered mixed reactions from sports personalities.

“Bruh! They throwing money at these former QBs! Wow!” said former NFL safety and Super Bowl XLVII champion Bernard Pollard Jr.

“He’s literally one of my favorite commentators to listen to.. weird,” said Detroit Lions linebacker Alex Anzalone.

“Decline is an understatement. I thought he was great in 2019 and 2020,” said Executive Vice President Tom Ernisse.

“told you so,” said Champions Round lead of content and community Stephie Smalls.

“Hahahahahahahahaha. I love this. Jim Nantz deserves so much better than Tony Romo. We do too,” Sirius XM and Mad Dog Radio host Rick Kamla said.

Following his football career, Romo signed a ten-year, $180 million deal to become CBS’ NFL broadcast analyst. His football accomplishments include leading the league in passer rating and completion percentage in 2014.
