Tony Romo has been one of the most controversial sports figures in the 21st Century. The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback had tons of ups and downs during his 13-year career in the NFL and fans around the world will forever debate whether or not he was a great quarterback.
NFL Network has announced its subjects for its next “A Football Life” season and no other than Tony Romo is on the mix. The eight season of NFL Network’s acclaimed series will feature Romo on September 28th. Cowboys Nation, mark that date on your calendars.
Romo holds tons of franchise records but the lack of a Super Bowl ring has smeared his career in the eyes of many fans. His story, however, is awesome. An undrafted rookie from Eastern Illinois, Bill Parcells turned the kid into a superstar.
His life and his playing career are filled with moments, good and bad, that fans will love to hear about on “A Football Life.” From his early years, to the emotional moment in which he admitted that Dak Prescott had taken over the team.
Although he’s now calling games from the broadcast booth, debates about #9 still abound in Cowboys Nation and the rest of the NFL fan bases. Should he be considered an elite QB? Does he deserve to be enshrined into the Hall of Fame?
We’ll get to learn a lot about Tony Romo’s career from his family, friends and colleagues this September 28th on “A Football Life.”
