Who would you rather have in the broadcast booth: Peyton Manning or Tony Romo?
Peyton Manning dominated the NFL while he was quarterback because he was the most before the snap. He always knew a defense's tendencies and what they were looking to do when faced with a particular look. It's that experience that makes him perfect in the booth.
Tony Romo is constantly praised for calling the right play, so imagine when the greatest pre-snap quarterback is in the booth calling the shots. He will be a better broadcaster in no time.
Peyton Manning might be the better quarterback, but the broadcast booth is Tony Romo's domain. He flew up the ladder at CBS and deserves every bit of the $18 million a year he earned by calling the right plays and providing interesting insight to fans.
The thing that separates Romo and Manning is personality. Manning can act, sure, but Romo has shown his charm comes from a genuine place and that translates on the mic.
Romo didn't win a Super Bowl like Manning, but he will be a more successful broadcaster.
