He is from Wisconsin. So there’s that. He also was in Wisconsin when he said it. So there’s that. However, former Dallas Cowboys quarterback and current CBS analyst Tony Romo really likes the Green Bay Packers.
Romo held his annual football camp in his hometown of Burlington last week. Naturally, he also did some media stuff.
What did Romo say about the Packers?
They are vastly improved and he loves the Jimmy Graham acquisition.
“I think the Packers probably got better more than any team I saw this offseason,” Romo said. “It’s early and injuries happen, but right now, they’re right at the top for me as far as a team you wouldn’t want to see in the playoffs.”
Normally, we wouldn’t care what Romo thinks. However, he proved to be a hell of an analyst last year in his first year in the booth.
He had an almost idiot-savant-like ability to tell us exactly what was going to happen and why before a play even went off.
Let’s hope his powers of prediction remain on.
We better hope he is right. On paper they have certainly improved, we will see if that translates on to the field. Not off to a great start with Cobb apparently injured. Does this mean Montgomery gets snaps at receiver where he belongs?
I’m not so sure it even looks better on paper. Maybe if you are counting on rookies contributing right away, but doesn’t that just put you back in the old familiar pattern? When and if we see it, we’ll know it. Until then, keep the dream alive brother. I’ll just weather the storm with a smile and a beverage in my hand.
Like where you’re at with the Montgomery thing though. McTriple is going to ruin that kids career.
Doubtful. They’ll probably use Allison or one of the rookies. Anybody but Montgomery, because they’re still stuck on making him a starting running back even though he had fewer yards and TD’s than both Williams and Jones in their first year. Montgomery only had three more rushing yards than Brett Hundley.
