CBS' lead NFL analyst, Tony Romo, met with the media in advance of Sunday's Super Bowl broadcast this afternoon.

The former Dallas Cowboys' quarterback addressed a number of topics, from his score prediction for the game to fans wanting him to get into coaching.

There was at least one topic Romo didn't want to get into, though.

Romo was asked what the Dallas Cowboys need to do in order to take the next step. Dallas was a playoff team this season, beating the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC's Wild Card round. The Cowboys then fell to the Los Angeles Rams in the Divisional Round.

The former Cowboys' quarterback decided to pass on the topic.

“Umm, that’s a good question," Romo said before pausing for a couple of seconds. “I’ll pass on that one.”

Of course, fans will speculate that Romo didn't want to say anything bad - publicly, anyway - about the team's head coach, Jason Garrett, or its quarterback, Dak Prescott.

It's reasonable for Romo to still be frustrated with the Cowboys' decision to stick with Prescott over him, though maybe that's not the case and he chose to skip this question for another reason.

Romo will be on the call for Sunday's Super Bowl between the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams.

That game will kick off at 6:30 p.m. E.T. on CBS.
