Doug Flutie did a GREAT job on Christmas last year... but otherwise, I agree.

You know who else was really good? Denis Pita. Yeah not likely many heard him on Ravens commentary team. I listened to Steelers game via Rats radio team after game while I was idling away a Monday morning. Pita was superb and showed up Homer fuckhead Rats radio guys badly. It was most enjoyable.

I found Romo annoying at times. I have watched other games he did and thought he was pretty good...Basically I am an uptight asshole when I watch games so take any comment I make with a grain of salt

Wasn't impressed. Seemed awkward, out of place. Had his moments but I'd expect more from these media conglomerates. Do a real f'n search.

BUT better than simms was. And simms seems better in the studio than he was doing games.

He's great. He hasn't been sanitized and dumbed down by the NFL yet, so he calls it like he sees it. Which is refreshing.

I was pleased with the way Romo called the game nice to see

Honestly, I've seen a lot of the games this year and I thought not only is he a great (and maybe the best) commentator but I think he'd make for a decent QB coach in the league.

He and Gus Johnson would be real fun to pair together even though I know Gus is a college football guy.

There was a point in the broadcast that I absolutely loved last night. I'll go back and figure out when it was but the teams were lined up and neither announcer spoke for at least 20 seconds. It was so refreshing to not hear some idiot try to fill the silence with bullshit. I also really like Romo as a color man. He is really good.


My favorite was his reaction to AB' play: spontaneous and just like a fan of game would react.


Was on the road during the game yesterday so I missed it and got caught up on replays, but I loved that too. Was so natural and in the moment.

I used to love watching games that Brian Billick did commentary for a few years ago.

Romo reminds me a lot of him. Very knowledgeable, wasn’t afraid to go into a little depth with his analysis, with just enough personality to make it fun without sounding like a douche.

I've made a LOT of jokes about Romo over the years. But his style is a breathe of fresh air. He comes across as a true fan of the game and sounds like he's having fun.

I think Romo and Trent Green have been the best i have heard. Both see things right away in a play and can describe it to the audience.

That's my biggest fear: NFL or CBS will tell him to have less personality

Anyone catch the Dumb and Dumber reference he made on the one Chiefs KR? "Swim? Swammi? Slippy? Slappy? Swenson? Swanson...Samsonite!!!"

Romo can make W A Y more money in the commentary booth than as a QB coach. It would be dumb for him to pass up the opportunity to do something like what Strahan did and what Barber tried to do.

My fear is they will tell him to dumb it down and push more of the personal/gossip angles. Gotta forget objectivity and get on board with the official narratives!
