Tony Romo unfazed by criticism: I was Cowboys QB, I can deal with anything

Tony Romo says the criticism he has been receiving lately for his broadcasting work isn't bothering him really as being a Dallas Cowboys quarterback prepared him for pretty much everything. After an impressive start to his broadcasting gig with CBS Sports, Romo seemingly took a step back in the last two years in his role as the lead color commentator.

In recent months, there were reports suggesting that CBS executives - as well as Romo's broadcasting booth colleague Jim Nantz - weren't happy with the former Cowboys quarzerback. “I think that’s normal. I think that happens to anybody.

Anytime you’re doing something well I think there’s always going to be that. It’s just the arc type of someone’s career. It’s happened to me a few times before, and that’s a good thing. That stuff doesn’t affect me, really once you play quarterback for the Cowboys you can deal with anything.

You got to remember there’s always someone’s opinion there," Romo said, per Sports Illustrated.

"One hundred other people, come up to you and tell you they love you.

You’re not going to please everyone. I do think at the end of the day there’s a lot more people that really appreciate what we do, and I think CBS does a great job with their broadcast team," Romo added. This month, Nantz publicly defended Romo.

"He’s also one of my best friends. I love the guy. And when somebody starts questioning our chemistry, there’s an agenda there. I have never had better chemistry with anybody in my career than Tony. All you have to do is sit in the booth with us, which people that are covering our business, they’re always welcome to come in and take a look at how we interact between the two of us, on the air, off the air, between plays. It’s amazing," Nantz said on the SI Media with Jimmy Traina podcast.
