Tony Romo drawing rave reviews for work in broadcast booth
Tony Romo has gone from the field to the broadcast booth and the early reviews of his work behind the microphone are very favorable.
Romo and Jim Nantz got their first opportunity as partners during the Hall of Fame Game last month. On Sunday, they were in Nashville for the season opener between the Titans and Raiders.
We know Nantz is one of the best play-by-play guys in the business. What many didn’t know was how Romo will do in his new role. Judging by reactions on social media, Romo will be just fine an as analyst.
As I thought, @tonyromo is excellent in the booth. Energetic, knowledgeable, concise, likeable. And will only get better.

Romo calling out audibles before the QBs even see it. Incredible.

I told you guys Tony Romo would be exceptional in the booth. I said he'll be known for his broadcasting career more than football.

Tony Romo correctly identified pre-snap which Titans DB Derek Carr was keying on. I like that kind of insight.
