    As usual, it was somewhere in between these. He was good in spots - especially talking about scoring on the plus-side of the two minute warning and on the types of plays/clock management for Tampa during their last drive.

    But he wasn't great in giving reasoning for onside kick vs. kicking it deep, and I didn't like that he and Nantz never talked about the possibility of New England going for it on 4th down.

    Romo is getting there. His insights and the way he actually talks football are better than almost anything out there right now. But he needs to become more calculated and less excitable. There are times where he needs to think things through before blurting something out. To his credit, he usually corrects himself, but it leads to too much of Romo talking.

    Yeah, I didn't like that. I don't think it registered with him that a first down would ice the game and that their only options were field goal or punt. They would never punt the ball in that situation. Going for it made a thousand times more sense than punting it.

  4. 4th & 1 would be a close decision.

    I agreed in the moment, but it's another instance where he's falling all over himself to show how smart he is.

  5. all that can be true and there still be no chance he is going for it

    they were down 2. i knew they weren't going for it because of that. yeah, a first down ices it. a field goal to make it 5 is still the better option by far though.

    i thought the whole fake was pretty much a waste of time. i get that you might as well try it because it doesn't matter and maybe there's just a complete fucking idiot on Tampa. nobody was falling for that shit though.

    the only option was a field goal. thats essentially what im saying i guess. thats a fg attempt 100% of the time so the whole charade was basically just a waste.

    im sorry, obviously they were up 2.

    there is actually no score that would justify going for it. any field goal with any lead changes the game enough where kicking is always the only option. (unless you're up or down huge. in that case it doesn't really matter)

  8. I challenge OT to find a video/GIF of the Orlando Brown incident (other than the shitty edited version on NFL.com). I spent a good 20 minutes trying to find it but the NFL has apparently very effectively brushed it under the rug. this is the best I found.

    They probably didn't do that since they're not retarded.

    I'd have to listen to it again, but I don't recall "punt" ever being discussed on a 48-yard FG try... maybe before the 3rd down play....

    If somebody said "punt" there on 4th down, I'll bet it was a brief slip, not something discussed seriously.

  13. Romo overall is awful. Most of the time it feels like he should just tell Jim 'I feel a bootleg coming this play, loser takes a shot?'

    Sheep put it best, he's just too excited and the flow of him and Jim is just off. He's still way better than Sims ever was, but Romo has a way to go to become solid.

    Mentioned this in the other thread but someone who is really good at this announcing stuff is Ernie Johnson with MLB. He doesn't interrupt his partner, has a nice tone and gets excited at the right times, knows his shit. I bet he would be amazing with the NFL/NCAA.

    I love that Mariner thinks Romo could have said something stupid. That's not possible Sheep, get a clue.

    durrrrrrrrrr... I've agreed with style criticisms of Romo and said it will take seasons for him to refine that. But he is clearly good and killed it on the final drive. lol at discussing going for it when you have a 48 yard FG with Gostkowski who is 11 for 11 and has been splitting the uprights. If they discussed punting, it had to be before 4th down when they advanced to the 31, unless it was a brief slip by one of them.

    This is probably accurate. I'd rather listen to him call a game than anyone else right now.

  22. I hate the obligation games. Here in Orlando they have 3 obligation teams (Jags, Bucs and Miami) so you really never get a chance at a good 1 PM because at least one of those teams is playing at 1.
