Peyton Manning has proven it. He is a jerk, Yeah, the guy who pretended to drive Buick’s and eat Oreo’s in commercials took a shot at the invincible announcing legend Tony Romo.
Source – Tony Romo took the high road.
The former Cowboys quarterback opted not to fire back at Peyton Manning’s jab, insisting he’s merely excelled at broadcasting because of his passion for it, and not because he was focused on it previously.
Manning, who passed on a job as a “Monday Night Football” analyst because he didn’t want to analyze brother Eli’s play, seemed to take a recent jab at Romo.
“I saw where Tony Romo said that he always knew that he wanted to be a broadcaster,”Manning said, according to CBS Radio. “Well, I always knew I wanted to be a football player. That’s all I knew. I was all-in on that job. I didn’t think about anything else while I was playing.”
Romo, the lead NFL analyst for CBS, responded in an interview with 105.3 The Fan in Dallas.
“I actually hadn’t heard those comments. I like to tunnel the little bubble I live in. But, ultimately, that’s something I never actually said,” Romo said. “I didn’t start thinking about being a broadcaster until I was contemplating retirement. And so at that point, then you’re going to start thinking about your next stage.”
I mean how can you critize the guy who who literally predicts every play right in his play by play?
Also Peyton, you trying to avoid criticizing your little bro Eli? That’s why you didn’t take the job? Your little bro is gonna ride the bench for The New York Giants by mid-season anyways. And also, you probably didn’t take the job because you’d end up in the announcing world just like you did in the NFL. You’d be #2. Brady dominated you in The NFL, and Romo would dominate you in announcing. The end.
