    Why would Romo leave Nantz, though?

    I like Romo and Nantz ...
    I know some find him annoying but I generally like him and that team.
    If he is using ESPN for leverage ... that is a hell of a power move.

    I like Romo, he's great.

    ESPN would find a way to ruin him, so leave him where he is.

    You must have missed the part where it says they may offer him between $10 million-$14 million annually.

    H may give CBS a "hometown discount" but if they're not in that neighborhood, he could very likely jump ship.

    Would be a step down for Romo, those Monday night games are usually bad slates.

    Tessitore is horrible too and I doubt Romo would look as good with him as he does with Nantz.

    You can find another Nantz. Romo is the draw. You can't pass up 10-14m a year. That's insane money for very little work. Could easily be pulling in 20m a year with other endorsements.

    "The multi-year deal could pay Tony Romo between $10 million-$14 million annually, said sources".

    They’d likely make him dumb down his analysis for the pink hats.

    Ehhhh I’m not so sure about that. Nantz has been the perfect play-by-play guy to team with Romo because he’s always sat back and let Romo roll without interrupting him or sounding stupid in return. He helped Romo grow in the role a lot. If the money is similar, Romo would be insane to leave CBS and Nantz for the badly managed train wreck that is ESPN and MNF.

    I'm not sure it's a step down when it's essentially the same job with a huge pay raise and more viewers on average. Don't forget, CBS doesn't have a double header in 8 of 17 weeks and on any week where they don't have the double header, Romo probably doesn't even reach half the country. (Even when they do have the double header, the #1 game usually isn't broadcast nationwide). MNF is a national telecast week in and week out.

    Romo gets to call conference title games and a Super Bowl once every three years at CBS.

    At ESPN he gets nothing but the annual Houston Texans invitational.

    Nantz and Romo are long time friends, and the two of them work well together.

    If he hasn’t, he needs to be. I don’t know who he blackmailed to get that job, but he’s the worst.

    Leave em both where they are. Replace Tess with Harlan. Booger is good for the laughs and Harlan is the best in the biz and can keep him relatively afloat . It’s absurd Harlan is on the radio while Tess (who is a decent commentator) is on tv.

    Not that I've heard. But, if he's been fired, he's not going to be working there.*

    The only network close to CBS in terms of NFL production quality (in my highly subjective opinion) is NBC, so I don't know why he would want to downgrade outside of the obvious money factor.
