CBS will pad broadcast booth to keep Tony Romo safe

With the announcement coming last week that Tony Romo will forego his playing career, and begin his broadcasting career, CBS is taking precautionary measures.

Romo surprised many in the sports world, when the word came out that he would eschew any possible offers to continue his playing career, and retire instead. The veteran quarterback has battled numerous injuries throughout his 14 year playing career, that saw him throw for over 34,000 yards, and 248 touchdowns.

Upon announcing that he would retire, and join Jim Nantz to serve as color commentator for CBS, the network announced that they would do their best to keep Romo safe.

CBS spokesperson Nancy Polk told the Daly Dose that the network has a plan for the upcoming season. “We are very aware of the injury history that Tony has dealt with during his playing career. The last thing we want is to see him end up on the injured list yet again. We are currently working to insure that each booth Tony and Jim will broadcast from will be equipped with the latest safety equipment. That will include padded walls, padded floor, and padded broadcast table. In addition, Tony we will be required to continue to wear a full football uniform including helmet as he performs his broadcasting duties.”

Daly Dose #117 Our NBA All-Star Improvements

This week on the Daly Dose, we look at a few very simple ways to improve NBA All Star Weekend. The dunk contest, the 3 point contest, and the All Star game itself were all a little underwhelming. Never fear, we can fix them all Daly Dose style!

We discuss a few trades around the league involving the Toronto Raptors, the New Orleans Pelicans, and the Sacramento Kings, and what in the world are the Los Angeles Lakers doing?

The UConn Lady Huskies are making history, the Dallas Cowboys don’t care about Tony Romo, and Tom Brady’s diet isn’t the only thing helping his ability to play at 40.

Finally, Cleveland Cavaliers PG Kyrie Irving thinks the world is flat, so we count down the Top 5 other things he believes!

Tony Romo injured while proclaiming that he is healthy

The Dallas Cowboys escaped with an amazing 35-30 comeback victory on Sunday, but it seems quarterback Tony Romo could be injured again.

romo2212

On Monday, when asked if he was healthy enough to return in a backup role, Romo gave an excited “Yes!” and slipped a disc in his already fragile back.

Romo has yet to play a snap this season, after breaking a bone in his back in the third preseason game of the season against the San Francisco 49ers.

Rookie backup Dak Prescott has played very well in Romo’s absence, leading the Cowboys to an impressive 8-1 record, while throwing 12 touchdowns with just two interceptions.

Yet there has been talk, that perhaps when healthy, Romo would return to the field and reassume his starting duties.

Monday’s injury will put those talks on indefinite hold.

Romo has missed over 30 games due to injury over the past seven seasons, and his age makes it unlikely that he will ever return to form.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who has also named himself general manager, offensive coordinator, and team doctor has officially listed Romo as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens.

 

The Daly Dose NFL NFC East Preview 

We now move over to another division that has a history of winning. Some of the greatest teams and players in league history have played in this rough and tumble division.

The NFC East boasts 12 Super Bowl victories!

And also, the Philadelphia Eagles!

NFC East

1. New York Giants   

Predicted finish: 9-7   

Giants management decided that Tom Coughlin was the only problem on a team that has gone 6-10 the past two seasons and fired him after 12 seasons and two Super Bowl victories. And while the defense should be better, but Eli Manning has thrown 55 interceptions over the past three seasons. What I’m saying is maybe the Giants should have fired Manning and made Coughlin the starting QB. Is that so crazy? Yeah, well who asked you?

2. Washington Redskins   

Predicted finish: 8-8   

Washington somehow won the NFC East last year with a 9-7 record, and made the playoffs under QB Kirk Cousins, who set the franchise record for passing yards in 2015.  So you might think this team should be better this year, at least until you find out that Cousins is 0-26 as a starter in his career against winning teams. “You like that?!?!”

3. Dallas Cowboys

Predicted finish: 6-10   

We aren’t sure how the Cowboys would have fared with Tony Romo at the helm considering the atrocious defense down in Dallas. But with Romo injured again, it will up to rookie Dak Prescott to try and outscore opponents. Last season the Cowboys tried to do that with Matt Cassel, Keller Moore, and Brandon Weeden and wound up going 1-11. So what is a rookie like Prescott going to do over that bunch? Well…probably about five games better.

4. Philadelphia Eagles   

Predicted finish: 5-11   

The Eagles may have helped themselves in the long term, but in the short term, they drafted QB Carson Wentz to watch and learn under veteran Sam Bradford. So if Wentz is a quick study, he should learn how to blow out his knee very shortly.

Team/Record Last game/Next game Outlook
1. New England Patriots 2-0

Last week: 1

Last game: Beat Buffalo 40-32

Next game: Sun. vs. Jacksonville

The Patriots beat the Bills and Tom Brady racked up over 500 yards of offense against the Bills defense. You don’t see that kind of performance every day. It’s almost like he had a trick football or something.
2. Green Bay Packers 2-0

Last week: 2

Last game: Beat Seattle 27-17

Next game: Mon. vs. Kansas City

Aaron Rodgers and the Packers overcame injuries to RB Eddie Lacy and DE Josh Boyd to beat the Seahawks on Sunday night. Oh sure, NOW they beat them
3. Denver Broncos 2-0

Last week: 4

Last game: Beat Kansas City 31-24

Next Game: Sun. @Detroit

Despite riding around on a mobility scooter through the first two games Peyton Manning has the Broncos sitting at 2-0 with wins against the Ravens and Chiefs.
4. Cincinnati Bengals 2-0

Last week: unranked

Last game: Beat San Diego 24-19

Next game: Sun. @Baltimore

First the Bengals stomped on the Raiders 33-13 and then they beat the Chargers too. Maybe they can finally win a playoff game if they join the AFC West.
5. Arizona Cardinals 2-0

Last week: 5

Last game: Beat Chicago 48-23

Next game: Sun. vs. San Francisco

Quarterback Carson Palmer has started off the season red hot throwing for seven touchdowns already in just two games. Of course it was against the Saints and the Bears so it doesn’t really count.

No longer ranked:

Dallas Cowboys 2-0 Yes they are undefeated but if you want to bet on Branden Weeden, go right ahead.
