During a recent interview with Deion Sanders on NFL Network by way of Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News, Brett Favre was asked if he sees himself in any of the NFL quarterbacks playing today.
“Romo is probably more like me than any of those guys,” Favre said. “I think way too much is cast upon him, good or bad. It’s Dallas, and much is expected. He’s carried those guys. I watched him last year. And I like Tony. I like the way he plays. I think at times he’s underrated.”
But Favre, who was known for making something out of nothing on several occasions, wasn’t done with his assessment. He went on to describe with his hands what Romo had to do last season to get his teammates into place before offensive snaps.
“How in the world are you going to have a positive play when the ball’s coming and you’re telling guys [where to go],” Favre questioned. “But he’ll make something out of nothing.”
