Rave reviews continue to pour in for new CBS color man Tony Romo.
Romo was sent to the Superdome on Sunday to call the Patriots-Saints tilt along with play-by-play man Jim Nantz. With the Saints in the red zone early in the second quarter, Romo spotted a New Orleans offensive alignment he believed would lead to a fade throw to "16" -- a.k.a. wide receiver Brandon Coleman.
Seconds later, the Saints scored on a touchdown pass -- a fade pass -- to, yep, Brandon Coleman. Number 16.
This sudden internet love affair for Romo is sweet and deserved (Romo really has done nice work as a rookie booth guy), but perhaps this relentless celebration is rooted in a collective sense of guilt for years of unfairly hating on the former quarterback.
The real truth: Tony Romo has always been good at this football stuff -- most of you are just deciding to give him credit this time around.
