Romo is great tonight, because he isnt calling every play before the snap.
He is finally coming into his own.

He's becoming like all the other boring arse commentators

I enjoy the inside info and talking about the plays

He wasn't doing that before. He did it a few times, but no where near like made out to be. Most of his commentary is insight on what to look for.

Talking about the play is great. Callling it before the play brought nothing to the table.

Predicting the play based on the offensive lineup and defensive positioning definitely brings something to the table. He wasn't just wildly guessing. He would give his reasoning. It was insightful.

People bitching about Romo are nothing but contrarian types who just try to find shite to bitch about. I hated romo as a player and hate the cowboys. But I know he is great as a color guy because he brings actual modern game knowledge and enthusiasm.

He’s good and I hope he keeps predicting plays before the snap.

They told him to tone it down, it was reported.

I've mentioned this before in other threads.

It's been shown majority of armchair QB fans don't like to be told what is going to happen.

They like to be surprised, you know...sports. Or guess themselves.

Bill Walsh as a color commentator had the same problem with fans...he was the man who knew too much. He was let go.

Romo has to straddle that line between smarty pants and just good info. But you can't just ruin the expectation of plays to a general NFL audience. This is network TV, not the film room.

He's out the second half. He had a back strain lifting the mic.

Network broadcasting can go screw themselves. They've fricked up the game so badly with endless delays, Thursday night football, etc, it's far too ironic to suggest Romo might be taking something from the game.

Everyone always wants to play the wizard even when we all know what behind the curtain.

Gary Danielson does the whole call the play out before the snap all the time, and people think its so great. All he does is go watch practice and talk to the coaches the week before the game and so he knows whats coming. Anyway, frick Gary Danielson.
