    ...[He's] given Jim Nantz, who’s been at the network since 1985, a new energy, a new vigor. “I’ve heard a lot of people say that,” Nantz told me this week. “It’s probably true. … I definitely feel like I’m trying to match up with Tony’s enthusiasm.” “I gotta be honest,” said Tracy Wolfson, the crew’s sideline reporter. “I felt reinvigorated going down the stretch of the season.” Romo’s not just an announcer. He’s an energy drink. It’s not just Romo’s thirst for football that has changed the CBS crew. As Wolfson notes, Romo’s hiring allowed a rare reset for a...

    Tony Romo will make his 2016 debut on the first day of 2017. Romo, who has missed the entire season after suffering a back injury in the preseason and then being demoted in favor of Dak Prescott, is expected to play on Sunday, January 1, against the Eagles, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. That appears to be a change in plans for the Cowboys, who had previously indicated that they wouldn’t risk an injury to Romo in a meaningless game and would turn to Mark Sanchez if they decided to give Prescott some rest in the regular season finale. The...

    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Jay Cutler can't lose. Tony Romo can't win. What a surprise for both the Chicago Bears and Dallas Cowboys. Cutler threw three touchdown passes and Romo wasn't able to respond, lifting the Chicago Bears to a 27-20 victory Sunday. The Bears come away 2-0 for the first time since their Super Bowl season in 2006. Dallas fell to 0-2 for the first time since 2001, when Quincy Carter took over for the retired Troy Aikman at quarterback. Cowboys loyalists will remember the 1993 season starting 0-2 and ending with a Super Bowl championship, but that club got...

Tony Romo makes too many costly mistakes with his Favre-esque style of play. Tony Romo doesn’t care about winning in the NFL. And the most outrageous of all to me – Romo-friendly means scaling back the offense and making it simpler in order to hide his shortcomings as an NFL quarterback. Wow, Really ? Here’s my rundown on the 2009 Quarterback roster of the Dallas Cowboys: Starter – Tony Romo. There are...

    IRVING, TEXAS (TICKER) —Tony Romo evidently will not be around to help the Dallas Cowboys recover from a painful loss.

The Cowboys could not be reached for comment. Romo suffered the injury during Sunday’s 30-24 overtime loss to the Arizona Cardinals and originally was diagnosed with a sprained pinkie....

    A couple of miles from the house, the Whites had their own mini-disaster. A tire blew on the Mercury. Bill, luckily, managed to nurse his wounded ride off the street and into the lighted parking lot of a strip mall. Bill became a bit woozy himself when he discovered his jack was malfunctioning. Never a good thing at midnight. Plan B kicked in, however. One of those cigarette-lighter-plug-in air compressors was available. Except it was leaking more air than it was pumping. "I don't know, a hundred cars, probably more, had to go by. Nobody was stopping," said Bill. "That's...
