Maybe the weirdest part of Tony Romo’s cosplay as a Make-a-Wish kid living out his dream to be a Dallas Maverick for a day is that owner Mark Cuban had been secretly teasing it for a while:
Just-retired Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will be sitting on the Dallas Mavericks’ bench tonight, in full uniform, because all retirees deserve to live their best life. He also got to hang out at the Mavs’ shootaround today, and they even let him put on a pinnie and run some sets.
With the news of Tony Romo’s retirement and move to the broadcast booth now official, the Mavericks have decided to honor him with something better than your usual rinky-dink pregame ceremony. They’ve instead opted to give him a “Maverick for a day” treatment that will reportedly include wearing a uniform and sitting…
Now that Tony Romo’s going to be Jim Nantz’s wingman, the real question left wafting in the air is this: What the hell are the Houston Texans going to do?
Tony Romo, who will be released today by the Cowboys and reportedly retire, will join the CBS broadcasting booth and be paired with Jim Nantz as the network’s lead football analyst, reports John Ourand and Adam Schefter. Schefter adds that he might eventually broadcast golf for CBS as well.
If Tony Romo deserves to be remembered for anything, it’s that he managed to make nearly everyone look fucking stupid.
This comes as a pretty big surprise, but the source and the surety of the report don’t really leave much wiggle room: Tony Romo will be released by the Cowboys today, according to ESPN, and will retire from the NFL for a career in broadcasting.
When the NFL instituted predetermined contract rates for draft picks (popularly, if unfairly, remembered as a reaction to Sam Bradford, the last No. 1 pick under the old system, who earned $50 million before playing a snap), it was a change that was both team-friendly, and beneficial to veteran players, who would no…
Tony Romo, despite missing all but four games to injury over the last two seasons, is probably the most in-demand quarterback on the market. The Broncos are probably the best overall team with a massive hole at quarterback, and the motivation to quickly plug in an effective veteran. So, Romo-to-Denver would appear to…
Heads up, we’ve got two new sports babies on the scene, and they don’t believe in the offseason.
Tony Romo is coming up on his 37th birthday, after spending essentially an entire season sidelined with a broken back, which followed another near-entire season sidelined with a broken collarbone. But apparently, he’s still interested in finding somewhere to let him play at quarterback for 2017.
Hey there, stranger.
Future Jet/Brown/Bear/Bronco Tony Romo will reportedly see some action this weekend, because at this point his health is a lot less important to Dallas than Dak Prescott’s.
The Dallas Cowboys’ enviable quarterback question, which rookie Dak Prescott effectively answered with his play, has been flipped on its head: Why not use backup Tony Romo as you would, you know, the backup, and protect Prescott for the games that really matter?
After Sunday’s loss to the Giants, both owner Jerry Jones and coach Jason Garrett were adamant that Dak Prescott is the starter and Tony Romo is the backup. On Monday, Garrett reaffirmed his support of the rookie, declaring that Prescott is his quarterback. On Tuesday? Well, Jerry Jones just can’t help himself.
Let’s just make this clear right off the bat, before the blog machine starts rolling and before, god bless you, you listen to sports talk radio: I’m not saying there should be a quarterback controversy in Dallas. Only that it’s already here, and we are all powerless to stop it. Strap the fuck in.
The Dallas Cowboys have thrived with Dak Prescott at quarterback, and although Tony Romo has recovered from his back injury and had an advantage in terms of experience, Prescott is too good to sit. Romo spoke with media today for the first time this season and accepted that he’s no longer the starter.
The Cowboys played this perfectly, and got lucky, but there is now no question that Dak Prescott is their starting quarterback. Tony Romo practiced fully this week, and is healthy enough to play for the first time since breaking his back in preseason, but come Sunday against Baltimore, he’ll be holding a clipboard.
The Cowboys haven’t had much to say about their quarterback situation, which has only gotten more complicated as Dak Prescott has continued to play well and as Tony Romo’s back has continued to heal. But new report from ESPN suggests that the team will have to make a definitive choice sooner rather than later.
Rookie QB Dak Prescott has a seven-game track record that should be more than enough to secure him the starting job. Yet the Cowboys are still taking things week by week, refusing to make the choice until there actually is a choice. Prescott will be the starter next week against the Browns, owner Jerry Jones announced…
