- Tony Romo made a joke about Deion Sanders’ tackling during a broadcast.
- Sanders responded by making fun of Romo’s playoff record and bragging about his Hall of Fame induction.
NFL Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders didn’t take too kindly to a jab made by Tony Romo on Sunday.
During the Dallas Cowboys-Kansas City Chiefs game, Romo commented on Chiefs’ cornerback Marcus Peters’ unwillingness to make tough tackles, comparing it to Sanders’.
Romo said: “He’s really good out there at the corner off coverage, but tackling … no. And he makes Deion Sanders look good at tackling sometimes.”
When shown the clip on CBS’s “GameDay,” Sanders couldn’t resist taking several shots back at Romo.
“Tony, I tried my best to take the high road, but I don’t know the address to the high road,” Sanders said.
“Ten years as a starter, you’re 2-4 in the playoffs. You ain’t won nothing,” Sanders said.
Sanders said he tried to “bury the hatchet” and told Romo he was doing a good job in the booth. He then bragged about his Hall of Fame jacket while praising Dak Prescott, who took over as Cowboys quarterback last season while Romo was injured and never looked back.
“I got a gold jacket I didn’t buy,” Sanders said. “Dak says hi. And bye. Tony, leave me alone, man. I got a lot of ammunition, man.”
CBS likely doesn’t want two of its star broadcasters feuding on air, but it will be interesting to see if Romo responds to Sanders’ criticism.
