Toucher & Rich: ‘If Tony Romo Could Analyze Plays, He Would Have Been A Better QB’

“Romo just talks and talks and talks. Do any of you guys like him?”

Toucher and Rich

Fred Toucher doesn’t want to hear what a gifted broadcaster Tony Romo is. Monday morning, the 98.5 The Sports Hub morning show host went off on Romo’s performance during the Bills’ playoff victory over the Miami Dolphins.

Ben called in to discuss Romo. He said that even his 8-year-old began complaining about the former Cowboys quarterback overuse of a telestrator during the broadcast.

That gave the Toucher & Rich crew a chance to go off. Fred Toucher said he saw a lot of complaints about Tony Dungy’s work on Saturday night. While he agrees that it wasn’t good, Toucher said that he was not as insufferable as Romo has proven to be for a long time.

“He sucks, but he doesn’t talk constantly,” Toucher said. “Romo just talks and talks and talks. Do any of you guys like him?”

Rich Shirtenlieb chimed in saying that this weekend was an indictment of many of the NFL’s partners.

“I just don’t understand how it can be this difficult,” he said of the networks. “What do you need? Like a dozen decent color guys? Of the thousands of players that go through the NFL, you can’t find twelve of them that can discuss the game intelligently, be a little entertaining, show some personality? Fox goes out and hires Greg Olsen. That number one crew is so milquetoast. They should be doing the fourth or fifth best game of the week and they’re the number one crew on FOX!”

Tony Romo first caught the attention of many fans and won praise for his ability to predict what was going to be called next in a game. Toucher isn’t sure that is really of value to anyone watching a game.

“You don’t sit there yammering about things that haven’t happened yet. That’s of no concern to me. I can watch the game. I don’t care what you think is gonna happen.”

Shirtenlieb, who is an Eagles fan, took the chance to get a jab in at the former QB of his favorite team’s arch rivals. 

He pointed to John Madden as one of the best NFL analysts in TV history. He said that Madden defined the role by being so good at explaining why a play was called or decision was made based on the circumstances in the game. That isn’t what Tony Romo is known for.

“I don’t think Romo’s capable of doing that,” Shirtenlieb said. “If he was, he would have been a better quarterback.”

670 The Score morning host Mike Mulligan is being awarded the Father Finnegan Memorial Award from Loyola University Chicago this weekend, and some of his colleagues congratulated him on the air Friday morning.

The award is given “in recognition of outstanding humanitarianism and service to youth through athletics”. Mulligan — a 1984 graduate of Loyola University Chicago — will receive the award Saturday during the Loyola Athletics Hall of Fame ceremony during a game against George Mason.

“Tremendous award,” co-host David Haugh said. “Proud moment for the show. Proud moment for you family.”

“They’re giving me an award for correctly picking the Super Bowl on September 8th,” Mulligan joked.

“That is fantastic,” Laurence Holmes said, while his co-host, Dan Bernstein, continued to say “wow”. “Congratulations. You shouldn’t be embarrassed. You should be proud.”

“I’m being celebrated for being old,” Mully joked.

“That’s not what that award says,” countered Holmes. “It says something completely different.”

The Mully & Haugh host eventually admitted he was appreciative of the award bestowed upon him by his alma mater.

“It’s a good thing. I’m very moved by it. Sister Jean will be there,” Mully said. “She has a book coming out with — I think — Seth Davis.”

Colin Cowherd: Tony Romo Regressing Because He Loves Golf

“I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

The performance of CBS Sports NFL analyst Tony Romo has been a hot-button topic in sports media circles, especially after a widely-regarded lackluster performance during the AFC Championship Game. Colin Cowherd believes he knows why Romo has regressed.

During an episode of The Colin Cowherd Podcast, the sports radio host claimed golf is the reason behind Romo’s regression.

“Romo wants to be on the Tour. He literally wants to be on the Tour,” Cowherd said. “And what’s the first thing Aaron Rodgers does in the off-season? He goes and golfs, he loves it. Both, by the way, great golfers, especially Romo. But I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

“Tony wants to be on the PGA Tour — but he likes the paycheck from CBS.”

Cowherd also added he hasn’t hired potential employees in the past if they told him they loved golf during the interview process, saying he has a theory that as men age they “get addicted to golf”.

“They’re on PGATour.com, they’re putting in the backyard, they’re thinking about it at work, they’re scheduling a trip to Scotland and they lose sight of their other job,” Cowherd said.
