Romo broadcast today's game

Recommended Posts

I did remember Romo saying- this balls going to Beasley over the middle... And it ended up being a swing pass to singletery for like 10 and the first. Nice try Romo

The game I was listening to, I heard Romo say positive things...mostly about McDermott and Allen, over and over as the game went on.  A LOT.

Yet you pick out one thing to characterize the entire broadcast by?  I know some fans are homers, but give me a break.

The people complaining about romo are absurd, he was nothing but complimentary of buffalo basically the entire broadcast

pretty much.  And even if he WAS a bit of a Dallas homer, I can forgive it because... well... he played for Dallas his entire career!

I wasn't as impressed with Romo yesterday as I have been in the past. However, he did come out with enough praise for the Bills and Allen/McDermott, for me to feel he was trying to be even handed. The comment after Allen got the 1st down on the 4th and 1 was priceless - 'He just out aggressived the whole D-Line!'

 

Part of the difficulty for him, was that there's this whole undercurrent about Garrett and Jones, and he's having to tread a fine line with that whole thing, while still trying to come up with something of interest to say about it.

He played his entire career at dallas and knows alot of those guys personally, is it really that odd he likes to see them do well.

 

I'm sure he hoped Dallas would win but his commentary was fine and balanced. I think its crazy we have people saying they had to mute their TV

Was an educated guess, I think everyone believed Beasley would be the target on that play.... safe to say no other analyst would have predicted Singletary on that play either, romo was a ten year plus QB who was very good, he doesn't need to defend himself here or anywhere

He was great imo.  As an Ex-Dallas player, I expect him to still have an allegiance.  

 

As stated the narrative regardless in JJ & Garrett.....

 

Oh & let's also not forget that Dallas marched the ball up & down the field much of the game & continually imploded too.

Today they were god awful.  I think it had something to do with the Bills winning and the Cowboys losing.  They were completely unprepared for this game at least from the Bills side.

I agree completely with this. 

 

First, this was a BIG game for both teams.  It should have had a playoff atmosphere to it, and Nantz and Romo were completely matter of fact.  They did nothing to make the broadcast dramatic.  If it had been the Patriots getting a field goal and touchdown to open the third quarter, they would have been raving about Brady and the Pats, and they would have making a big deal about how the Cowboys were fighting to come back.   

 

All they could say by the end was "I guess the Bills are for real."  They completely missed the opportunity to make the broadcast interesting, and almost completely missed the opportunity to showcase the Bills.  They didn't know, or didn't care to mention, how great Milano is, for example.  They didn't showcase the Bills players at all as the Bills took control of the game.

 

Everyone in my house was groggy from that big dinner, and it sounded like Nantz and Romo were sitting on the sofa with us, half paying attention to the game.

To much Cowboys smaltz on the broadcast for me.  Emmitt who?  Call the game and stop interviewing a guy who retired 15 years ago.  I don't care if you are goomba's.....

 

Presumably that's not Nantz/Romo's decision.  Smith was embarrassing, they were trying to get him out of there as quickly as possible.

My favorite Ro-ment was when Dak threw the pick to Lotulelei.

Under his breath, almost whispering, he says, "Oh no. Say it isn't so."

This was the worst I have ever heard Romo......I get it he is an ex Cowboy but he did not seem to want to give the Bills their due.   Usually I like him but he was a definite Cowgirls fan today.

Romo was complimentary to Josh and the Bills and is a fair color analyst but you could hear the pain in his voice and hesitance to give them too much credit beyond playing an efficient game in all facets of the game.

 

He was honestly pretty quiet in the second half.

The laughing after a Hauschka missed FG was unprofessional and rude imo

I had no problem with Romo during the game. Emmett Smith should've been slapped though.

Romo was fine, he had some really nice things to say about Josh and I respect his opinion. He was broadcasting with hurt feelings today tho. Ha, oohhh yeahhh!! Because..Bills!!

Romo is usually always good but not yesterday

 

He actually got happy when Hausch missed his kick ... He is there to be an analyst not a fan

 

Sure he said Josh was good but he had the cowboys ding a ling in his mouth the whole time

I felt like Nantz, Romo, CBS and the rest of the football media people were playing catch up yesterday. The Bills threw their usually narrative a curve. Romo was the best at recovering, some of these other dudes were trying to recover from not knowing, watching, and creating the trash narrative of the Bills. He at least knew something real about Josh. It wasn't the usual lazy BS.

....kind of awkward for him being the color guy for the 'Girls, a staple on Thanksgiving, with him being a former 'Girl himself.....think he acquitted himself well.....Chuckie was getting $6.5 mil/yr for MNF and Tony is up for contract renewal, looking for $10 mil/yr.......somebody will pay it...the guy knows his stuff and comes prepared.....

I think Nance had his worst day yesterday. He was woefully unprepared and didn’t even know the Bills players names. That’s announcing 101. He was just horrible. Romo on the other hand, was very good as usual. He may have been a little shell-shocked at times, because after all, who expected the Bills to dominate? That said, he had his usual excellent analysis.

 

The Emmitt segment spoiled the broadcast during that whole time. It was Emmitt who spoke the “say it isn’t so” comment after the Star interception and he also cheered the field goal miss. Again announcing 101 says never let the guest contribute to the play-by-play. They are only there for the human interest part of the broadcast. The producer should have made that abundantly clear afterward, if they failed to do so before the game.

 

So, the broadcast indeed was not good overall. However, the least experienced member of the team, Romo, was the only one who did a good job. At the end of the day, I’d say shame on CBS for the quality of the broadcast and kudos to Romo for his singularly professional behavior.

I agree w/this. The national perception of the Bills was on full display throughout the pregame, broadcast, postgame, and actually still extending into today's analysis. People just weren't prepared for a superior Buffalo taking care of business against the favorite Cowboys and they were playing catch up the whole game. That was one of the surreal aspects for me...as the Bills kept proving themselves throughout those 60 mins it was like Romo/Nantz were the league in microcosm having to deal w/the Bills putting a beatdown on national TV against a heavy favorite. To be fair I had a few by halftime and was barely coherent.

....the reminder message was 'Girls vs Bills in SB, the 52-17 thrashing.....that was to be their lead in for another thrashing for the ..."8-3 ain't played anybody and have a weak schedule Bills"......LOL...justice served.......
