    The games I saw with Romo last year, I thought he was awesome. Whether it be from pregame meetings or just his own knowledge, his foresight on plays was refreshing. He didn’t seem to hold back much and I appreciated the change of pace.

    He's good. But he needs to talk less and be better over replays. His typical replay analysis is "Oh ohhh ohhhhhh I dunno Jimmmmm."

    It was his first year, I’m willing to give him a pass. I’d rather deal with that than Nantz’s or Collingsworth’s melodrama. Plus what Barf said.

    Agreed. He's also made Nantz better- Simms put him to sleep over years of non-committal statements of the obvious. How much better he is than Fouts or Gannon and just about anyone else is pretty obvious but he has some things I'd want him to work on.

    I hated how he kept trying to predict what was happening next, he didn’t add much but is better than Simms.

    I bet this is a run here Jim!

    Brady back to pass, complete to Edelman!

    Seriously though I thought he was pretty annoying but think he can be a great color guy. He just needs some more seasoning and to calm down which will come with time.

    I've long held the theory that former players as color guys have a window in which they have peak effectiveness, and it's generally year 2 or 3 through year 6 or 7 of their time in the booth (especially if they are immediately thrust into a A or B team like Romo was). A year or so to settle in and figure things out, then they shine for a while. Somewhere around 7-8 years removed from active play, they start to lose touch with being a player and the day to day grind (marked by the fact that at least 80% of the guys they played with are out of the league). By year 10, they're believing their own hype and getting full of themselves and generally become more annoying than insightful.

    This applies in any sport's national broadcasts...true of Simms and Collinsworth as much as it is about Joe Morgan and Tim McCarver.
