Tony Romo will get to call a pair of Cowboys games this year

Tony Romo’s still going to be working Cowboys games this year, but only two of them.

With last night’s schedule release comes word that CBS will have a pair of Dallas games this year, giving the former quarterback and rookie broadcaster a chance to call games featuring his old team.

According to Barry Horn of the Dallas Morning News, Romo will work the Nov. 5 visit from the Chiefs to Dallas, and will be back in the booth for the Thanksgiving Day Chargers-Cowboys game with partner Jim Nantz.

That will give Romo a few months to get comfortable in his new role, and it will be worth watching to see how far he’ll go with the background he built up during his career in Dallas.

Considering the apparent frost between him and coach Jason Garrett over the handling of last season (when Romo wasn’t given the chance to compete with rookie Dak Prescott for the starting job when he came back from his back injury), there’s the potential for some interesting commentary, if Romo chooses to share it.

    Hopefully. This is assuming Dak Prescott stays healthy. If Dak goes down, Tony will be calling plays and not games.

    They Cowboys basically have a 54-man roster.

    Oh wow. Im sure those games will be called in a nonbiased fashion.

    I cant wait to not watch them.

    Romo is too professional for this type of drama. He won’t be baited into what everyone wants to make a story about. He’s smarter and classier than that. Remember when he turned around demarco murrays hat mid-interview after a Sunday night game. It won’t change because he’s on the other side of it.

    Because Troy Aikman is not enough of a homer.

    Tony is way too classy & professional to say anything untoward. However, it would sure tickle me pink, if he would take a few jabs at the back-stabber….JG!!!!! He is what I thought he was, when he was first hired!!!!!!!

    I no longer watch any games except the Pats and the playoffs, so its immaterial to me as long as he’s not calling one of those games.

    Just working two Cowboys games this year? Had the same schedule as a player.

    I bet Romo will say San Diego at least 10 times.
