Stay tuned. I'm not convinced Romo won't call an audible. "When he was able to be around, he was always willing to be helpful to all the guys like me and Dak (Prescott). I think from that it probably does hurt". "I had to tell my dad first before CBS or anybody, because I found out from an National Football League insider", he said.
Romo, who turns 37 this month, was granted his release from the Dallas Cowboys on Tuesday and subsequently retired and accepted a job as CBS' No. 1 analyst alongside play-by-play veteran Jim Nantz.
Romo played in just five games the last two seasons because of injuries, but he served as a vital presence for Moore, the former Boise State great. Reflecting on his first experiences around Romo, Moore quickly understood the sway Romo held. I think you've gotta put him right on that tier.
"I've got to go attack this just like football and see where I'm good and where I'm not", he said. The personalities of Cowher and Simms would be fun to watch. That's easy enough. But then fans will still complain about him there.
But Romo never parlayed his regular-season success into deep playoff runs the way Roger Staubach and Aikman did before him, going 78-49 as the starter but 2-4 in the postseason, with no road victories and no trips to the NFC championship game. He also failed to lead the team to the playoffs in half of his eight seasons as Dallas' full-time starting quarterback.
By drafting studs on the offensive line such as Tyron Smith and Travis Frederick. Some seasons he had no defense.
The emergence of Prescott led many to believe that it was only a matter of time before the Cowboys parted ways with Romo. He threw an interception and it was "Romo blows it again". The defense lost that game. However, Romo has chose to hang it up and retire.More news: Minister: Iraq to boost crude oil production by year's end
You can read Witten's full message to Romo, which he signed as "Your Tight-End", below. "Ultimately, he became a player that would set the highest standard for himself, because he knew it would create higher expectations for all of those around him". There were 13 quarterbacks taken in the draft.
While chided for his interest in golf and celebrity girlfriends, Romo developed a reputation for toughness.
"It wasn't a simple decision", said Romo, who will work Thursday night and Sunday games. From there, Romo kept working.
He didn't just want to be a starting quarterback, he wanted to be the starting quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys. By the third season, Romo got his chance. (Dave) Krieg! Kerry Collins and Vinny Testaverde. No offense to Garcia, but that's a pretty big dropoff.
The move was not short of controversy, as CBS reportedly did not keep Simms properly in the loop as the decision loomed. Romo had to carry Dallas throughout his career.
Tony Romo's courtship by CBS was apparently so super secret that Phil Simms didn't find out he was being replaced until a deal was already struck, according to Simms' son, Chris.
