NFL Hall of Famer Deion “Primetime” Sanders did not take to CBS analyst and former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo’s jab at his tackling too kindly Sunday.
While watching a replay of Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters miss a tackle, Romo said he “makes Deion Sanders look good at tackling sometimes.”
Sanders later responded to Romo on NFL Network, ripping Romo for his poor playoff record and losing his job last year to rookie Dak Prescott.
“Tony, I tried my best to take the high road but I don’t know the address to the high road. So I got to come at you, man,” Sanders began.
The former Cowboy continued, “Ten years as a starter, you’re 2-4 in the playoffs. You ain’t won nothing. I tried to bury the hatchet. Both of us work for CBS. I went and shook your hand, I said, ‘Tony, you’re doing a great job this year.’ I thought that would be it. But nevertheless, you keep on shooting at me. Tony, what’s going on, man? I got a gold jacket that I didn’t buy.”
“Dak says hi. And bye,” he added. “Tony, leave me alone, man. I’ve got a lot of ammunition, man. How many interceptions, 19 in 2012? Come on, man, you threw to everyone but me. Tony, come on, man. You know you never won the big one. You know you never won the big one. So stop. Leave me alone. I tried to take the high road but I don’t know the address.”
