Tony Romo was sensational in his broadcast debut for CBS Sports on Sunday, calling out plays in the Raiders-Titans game before they happened and demonstrating a nice on-air chemistry with play-by-play partner Jim Nantz.

Romo showed the kind of strategic insight that could make him a great analyst. Don’t forget he’s being tutored by Nantz, one of the all-time greats who’s personally invested in his friend succeeding.
But if Romo lets the positive headlines go to his head and decides to be the Swami of game broadcasting, he could learn that nobody really knows the NFL that well.
