Tony Romo made a joke that Cowboys fans might take seriously

Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has been very good at his new job as a color commentator.

However, that won’t stop some Cowboys fans, and other some teams that actually have quarterback problems, from wishing that he would return to the football field. During the Thursday Night Football Philadelphia Eagles vs. Carolina Panthers matchup, a highlight was shown of Romo’s last NFL pass.

It was a touchdown to Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams during Week 17 of the 2016 season against the Eagles. When CBS Sports’ Jim Nantz mentioned that it was Romo’s last NFL pass, he turned to Nantz and asked: “Was it the last pass?”

Romo quickly responded that he was joking, and Nantz replied that they would chain him to the desk to keep him from leaving.

It was a good joke from Romo, but he is a professional athlete, so at least for the rest of this season there will always be questions about him returning to the field.

The person who should be angry after that comment, however, is Phil Simms. Nantz hasn’t spent half of a season with Romo yet and gave quite strong response to the thought of his new partner leaving.
