Tony Romo isn’t just clearing the bar, he’s setting a new standard
Scouting report: Tony Romo, color commentator
Strengths: He’s having fun up there, and it’s contagious for the folks at home. Insight. Romo is calling plays before they happen and giving fans about as close as they can get to a first-hand account of what’s happening in the huddle.
Weaknesses: Tends to slip into football jargon from time to time that may go over the casual fan’s head. Needs to get more comfortable with the banter when he’s not breaking down a play.
Comparison: Cris Collinsworth. Another former player known for giving fans rare insight into what’s happening on the field and easy going demeanor.
Romo’s debut will have fans wondering whether or not he can lead CBS in the playoffs. With CBS the home of the Super Bowl in 2019, he may finally get his chance to go to the big game.
