Twitter reacts to Tony Romo finally winning a championship

  Twitter reacts to Tony Romo finally winning a championship Tony Romo is well known by many in NFL circles as one of the best quarterbacks to never win a championship.Well, it wasn’t football, but on Sunday Romo did win a championship, beating out Mark Mulder, Ray Allen and other sports stars to claim the American Century Championship.

Love him or hate him, there's no denying that Tony Romo did a stellar job in his first season as an analyst for CBS.

Romo provided some spot-on in-game analysis, and even predicted how a few plays would unfold even before the ball was snapped.

There's no question that Romo, the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback, has a bright future ahead of him in the broadcast booth. Still, you can't help but wonder if the former QB hit his head one too many times on the turf during his playing days once you hear his prediction for Super Bowl LIII.

Romo: Belichick, Brady 'just like any married couple'

  Romo: Belichick, Brady 'just like any married couple' Romo: Belichick, Brady 'just like any married couple'Appearing on NFL Network, Romo compared the Belichick-Brady relationship to that of a married couple.

Appearing on NFL Total Access on Wednesday, Romo had this to say about who he sees squaring off for the Lombardi Trophy.

"Thing about the NFL is things change pretty fast. Injuries happen, a lot of stuff happens, but, um… if I was picking right now, I'd probably go with Green Bay versus Jacksonville. That would be a tentative, rough guess here in the summer months."

The Packers are no surprise, considering many people see them as a favourite in the NFC if Aaron Rodgers comes back at 100%. The Jaguars pick, however, is a bit more puzzling.

Yes, they made it all the way to the AFC Championship Game and were nine minutes away from upsetting the Patriots and punching their ticket to the Super Bowl, but it's hard to think the Jags can repeat that success in 2018.

Why Tony Romo forfeited his $125K winner's check

  Why Tony Romo forfeited his $125K winner's check Tony Romo is on a roll, winning back-to-back golf tournaments, including a celebrity event at Lake Tahoe on Sunday that included a very strong field.After his victory in the 54-hole American Century Championship, Romo didn't accept the $125,000 winner's check because he wants to retain his amateur status. The money will be donated to local charities and the Stowers Institute for Medical Research.

While their defense is stellar (they were second in overall defense last year, giving up just 281.6 yards per game), there is still the question of quarterback. Blake Bortles played admirably during the postseason, but you can never trust him to win a game for you, only manage it.

Jacksonville may have overachieved last year. And, while they won't regress to their old losing ways, I don't think Romo is right in his prediction.

Still, give Romo credit for going out on a whim.
