The most pleasant surprise of the NFL season so far has been Tony Romo’s Madden-esque color commentary. Hands down.
His weekly display of broadcasting greatness started when Matthew Tkachuk Jersey he predicted that Drew Brees would throw a touchdown pass to Brandon Coleman in the second quarter. His soothsaying was on display last week too. He’s watching the field, how defenses and offenses line up and presenting Tom Waddle Womens Jersey that information to you from the quarterback’s point of view. That’s just not what we’re expecting to get from a color guy; it’s a hundred times better.
Romo’s ability to demystify the game went to another level later on, when the Patriots had things well in hand against the Saints. What did he do that topped predicting plays? Oh, not much … he only explained what the hell Bill Belichick was thinking.
The Patriots show blitz with the Saints inside the 10-yard line, putting five guys on the line ready to send them at the passer. What they usually do with this look is drop two of those guys back into coverage.
It wasn’t the best basketball-themed celebration of Week 1. That was Chiefs tight end Demetrius Harris shooting a free throw while Tyreek Hill acted as the hoop. But the Falcons had a specific reason for this celebration, and it was all Julio Jones’ idea.
“It’s ‘Hoop.’ His name is Austin Hooper, so we did a little shot. … Yeah, it was easy. Mo did it. Hoop did it. It was good,” Jones said, via ESPN’s Vaughn McClure.
Jones is hoping to get into the end zone soon, too. He has a celebration plan, but he’s not ready to share it just yet.
“I just have to show you,” Jones said, via McClure. “I’ve just got to get in the paint first.”
Sunday’s celebration was the very first in the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium, and the Falcons are hoping there will be many more.
NFL celebrations are fun again. FINALLY.
