Tony Romo toys with viewers over his ‘last pass’
Tony Romo had a little fun with NFL fans on Thursday while calling the action in the Carolina Panthers-Philadelphia Eagles game.
Romo went into broadcasting after a back injury combined with Dak Prescott’s strong play caused him to lose the starting quarterback job for the Dallas Cowboys last season. Romo played in one game last season, going 3 of 4 with a touchdown pass in a Week 17 loss to the Eagles.
CBS decided to air video of that pass while televising the Eagles-Panthers game. Pay attention to Romo’s comment about it being his “last pass.”

“Was it the last pass?” Romo playfully asked.
Jim Nantz then said, “don’t you dare!” to Romo, knowing full well that the QB was teasing a potential comeback.
In a season where Jay Cutler came out of retirement to sign with the Miami Dolphins, this is just another reminder that perhaps the best free agent quarterback is sitting in a CBS TV booth every week. Of course, as recently as this summer, Romo was giving a pretty firm answer about his playing future.
