If Tony Romo — the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback who debuted earlier this season on the lead NFL broadcast team for CBS — has been guilty of anything in his first few weeks on the job, it’s his tendency to overanalyze the action on the field. But on one sequence during Thursday night’s Baltimore Ravens-Miami Dolphins game? Romo’s breakdown was pitch perfect.
Or should we say purr-fect.
With less than two minutes left in Baltimore’s 40-0 romp of the Dolphins, a stray cat somehow got loose on the field. The cat pranced around on the field momentarily, before scampering back to the sidelines.
This called for some instant replay action. And it called for Romo to chime in with his expert opinion.
“Look at this, Jim!” Romo told broadcast partner Jim Nantz. “This is like how you used to run in high school. Look at that. Perfect form. Extension. And doesn’t get fazed that there’s people around. Ooh! Look at the change of direction.”
Then, the kitty darted toward the sidelines.
“DOES HE GET BOTH FEET AT THE END RIGHT HERE, JIM?! HE’S IN!”
After review, the ruling on the field was confirmed.
