Just a few years ago, Tony Romo burst onto the scene and quickly became one of the best color commentators in sports.

He was known for his ability to call out a play before it even happened and also gave some great analysis overall.

That has slipped in recent years and it even led CBS to stage an intervention, according to Andrew Marchand of the New York Post. The goal was to have Romo feel more prepared since the network thought he wasn't doing as good of a job. 

Marchand also reported that Romo's partner Jim Nantz, CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus, and CBS’ lead NFL game producer Jim Rikhoff flew to Romo's home in Dallas to meet with him. 

CBS then commented on Marchand's report and claimed it to be a "mischaracterization."

“To call this an intervention is a complete mischaracterization, we meet regularly with our on-air talent,” CBS Sports spokeswoman Jen Sabatelle told Marchand

It remains to be seen if he improves heading into next season after he got more criticism during this past season.
