Chris Russo has ‘had enough’ of Tony Romo and his ‘$17 million’ salary after playoff mistake
It took one play in the Bills-Chiefs AFC Divisional-Round game for Chris Russo to lose his patience with Tony Romo.
On the first play from scrimmage, Josh Allen threw a pass to Stefon Diggs that the receiver fumbled before tight end Dalton Kincaid swatted it out of bounds.
Romo, CBS’ lead NFL analyst, referenced Franco Harris while dissecting Kincaid’s move, which was a 10-yard penalty for an illegal bat because the ball was swatted forward.
“I know he makes $17 million and everyone gets a kick out of him, Ive had enough. Tony, our little pal, Romo” Russo said on “First Take” before dissecting two of the more famous plays in NFL history and where Romo went wrong.
Russo, 64, furiously explained that Romo, 43, accidentally referenced the Immaculate Reception where Harris caught a pass off the helmet of Raiders safety Jack Tatum to score a touchdown in the final seconds of a 13-7 Steelers win in the 1972 AFC Divisional Round.

“He needs a history lesson, call me,” Russo said of Romo.
On that play, Raiders quarterback Ken Stabler trailing the Chargers in the final seconds of each team’s 1978 regular season opener fumbled the ball at San Diego’s 24-yard line.
The ball was then knocked forward (or thrown, depending on which fans you are talking to) by running Pete Banaszak before tight end Dave Casper bumbled with the ball, eventually falling on it in the end zone for the game-winning touchdown.

“That is awful, awful, awful, awful. Nantz, say something!” Russo said to wrap up the first of several grievances that have become a viral focal point of the ESPN show each Wednesday.
Chargers fans referred to the play as the Immaculate Deception.
After that season the NFL made a rule that only the offensive player who fumbled the ball could advance after a two-minute warning before halftime and at the end of the game.

The former Cowboys quarterback has since faced increased criticism for his performance.
Marchand reported that CBS executives met with Romo after last season to discuss how he could improve.

Awful Announcing; XAt first, theyd mostly tell me how much they love to listen to me and all these positives, so its fun,” Romo told BroBible of the criticism last year. “When youre young and you come out and youre good, then youre dealing with more expectations. You find out some people dont like you and some people want you to do things differently and do this and that instead. Youve gotta stay true to who you are. You cant please everyone. I know that because the number of people who come up to me has quadrupled since the first two or three years.”
Romo and Nantz will be on the call for CBS on Sunday’s AFC Championship game between the Chiefs and Ravens, as well as for Super Bowl 2024 on Feb. 11.
Russo will be watching.
