Tony Romo Leaving Football for Broadcast Booth

Well it’s official. Today one of the most polarizing quarterbacks in the NFL officially has called it a career. Although he never got to a Superbowl, or even had much success in the playoffs. I don’t think it’s even an argument any more. Romo was one of the elite quarterbacks in the NFL, and had a great career. Just look at his stats. Even look at his numbers in comparison with the other Cowboy quarterbacks. There is no debate. It’s become a shame that his career will be defined by the rise of idiotic debate shows, and the circus that Jerry surrounded around him. Will he ever be mentioned with Brady, Rodgers, or Peyton? Absolutely not. Those guys are generational talents on fantastic teams. Frankly, I’m glad he’s retiring now. There is nothing worse than a guy who knows medically it isn’t the greatest idea to stick around, or to take another shot at redemption on a team going nowhere like the Browns or Texans. What I do hope now, is that his vanilla family friendly persona forces Dilfer out of the booth so we don’t have to be subjected to moronic hot-takes anymore.

PS. It literally took the NFL one full hour for them to float on breaking the news that “the door is still open for Romo’s return.”
