I'm not calling anybody a wizard for predicting that Tom Brady and the returning champs would be in the Superbowl.

If we could just get Romo to replace Joe Buck in his... well in his entire career I guess, that'd be great, thanks.

I would put on pants. Jumpstart my car. Drive a least an hour in any direction, to physically sign a petition for this.

Back then we didn't know if Tom Brady's superpowers were great enough to overpower the putrid stench of Buccaneers history. I guess Romo knew back then that it was.

Romo is a very astute observer of football.  But in addition to that, when allowed, he can explain facets of the game simply and accurately.  I feel like they've had him tone down a bit of the football nerd since his first season as a broadcaster.  Still better than pretty much every other analyst out there.

If Romo was able to do the broadcasts instead of Buck and Aikman (along with the CBS broadcasts) that would be AAMMAAAZZIINGG...

As a Bucs fan, I did not see this coming.

Romo is a fantastic announcer. Also, he'd make less money as a Defensive Coordinator, but damn he'd be good at that. When he draws his arrows on the screen before the play, that's where the players go. Weird.

It's funny you say that. I was wondering as well whether they pulled back slightly.  I like it when he geeks out. I learn things in it and I've been consuming or playing football all my life

I am watching this game on my DVR today.

In his first three years of throwing footballs in the NFL, Tony Romo made my fantasy teams win money. So I refrain from dissing.

Of course, I likely won by picking mid-to-late first round RBs who had career seasons and Romo was on our leagues' waiver wire the first two years ...

So, rewatching Chiefs vs. Bucs from November, and actually Jim Nantz was the first to say we might see these two teams in February. He said it in the first quarter. So Tony Romo repeats it after the game, and he's the psychic.

/he's also famous for ribs

I'm on the Romo-wagon as well, but with Joe Buck around I simply cannot listen to tv broadcasts.

Romo is terrible.

Not every play has to be breathless hyperbole.

/ yeah I said it
// go ahead with the Edgelord memes; I know Fark slobbers all over Romo's knob

I predicted TB - KC Super Bowl as well. It was after the Bucs beat Green Bay yesterday, but I had the Chiefs from the beginning of the season.

Let me be the first to say I predict the Chiefs to be in the Super Bowl the next 3 years as well. Mahomes is a unicorn.

Yeah.  Middle of the season it was looking like a miracle they'd even make the playoffs.  The Bucs looks like... well... the Bucs.  Brady looked old.  The offense looked out of sync.

There was signs he was getting it together (the first few weeks of the season were beyond abysmal, mind you, and by week 8 things were quite improved) but there wasn't much flashing 'this looks like a super bowl team'.

Course, so much of the playoffs was just coaches making breathtakingly stupid decisions.

Packers, Browns, and Bills primarily lost their games thanks to unbelievably dumb overly conservative decisions by their head coaches.  What do they have in common?  Young head coaches.

The two coaches that won?  Andy Reid and Bruce Arians.  Two dudes with a combined age of 130 and been around a long time.

/Andy Reid used to be like that.  He lost a lot of winnable playoff games over the years being overly conservative and bad with time management.  While it did take a while, he learned from his mistakes.

It's not so much that he's that great, it's that his competition is so bad. Like the opposite of back when he was QB for the Cowboys...

Name me a color commentator or TV personality who's as entertaining (while also inserting / providing smart details).

I'm optimistic Philip Rivers may also translate well to TV.

Tom Brady Sucks. Amirite?

And in some universe, Stephen A.Smith is awesome.

And while we're riffing on idiot fan takes, Mike Tomlin has to be fired NOW!

Also, Andy Reid is a LOOSER and can never win the big games.

(I want to be an edgelord when I grow up. I learned typing and everything.)

I guess maybe that's my problem with Romo. I don't want sportscasters to be "entertaining".  Call the farking game.

Romo's Selma Bouvier voice and smarter-than-thou schtick grate on me.

He's also good at overusing the word "right".
