Former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens has weighed in on his former quarterback, Tony Romo, making headlines as a broadcaster for CBS.

Owens joined NFL Network’s Total Access on Friday to discuss his former quarterback.

Here's what he said:

“It’s one thing to call the game in booth, and actually be in action, and recognize those coverages, access what’s going on. But I think again, you have to deliver the ball accurately and decisively. And I think that’s what makes him great in the booth as opposed to what he did on the football field.”

“He had situations where he always threw interceptions late in the games. So again, it’s about decision making, it’s about how accurate and where you throw the ball.”

"Opposed to what he did on the field" is pretty unfair, of course.

Sure, Romo had a handful of heartbreaking moments, but statistically, he's one of the most-clutch quarterbacks in NFL history.

Romo is:

  • No. 5 all-time in QB rating
  • 24 fourth-quarter comebacks
  • 65.3 career completion percentage

He has been fantastic as a broadcaster, too, of course.

Romo is set to call the Super Bowl for CBS on Sunday, February 3. Kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m. E.T.
