“Greg Olsen is 100 times better than Tony Romo”


Retired NFL tight end Greg Olsen replaced Pro Football Hall of Famer Troy Aikman in the Fox Sports commentary booth after the former Cowboys superstar left the network to join ESPN after the 2021 season.

Fans were skeptical about Olsen, a broadcasting rookie, replacing Aikman, who was part of Fox’s commentary team for two decades. However, the former Carolina Panthers star pleasantly surprised fans and analysts with his performance in the booth, earning plaudits for his insights on the game and crystal clear analysis and explanation.

Some fans and analysts have even crowned him the best color commentator over Tony Romo, who is widely regarded as the cream of the crop among broadcasters:

Tom Brady to cut short Greg Olsen’s broadcasting career?

Greg Olsen’s budding reputation as one of the best color commentators in the game likely won’t earn him a long-term deal at Fox. The network signed Tom Brady to a 10-year, $375 million deal to be their lead broadcaster once he retires from the NFL.

Brady hasn’t committed to playing next season, but the odds of him retiring remain low. The quarterback is a free agent and will weigh his options before deciding whether he wants to return for another season, his 24th in the NFL.

Olsen’s future in the Fox commentary booth is heavily dependent on Brady’s decision. If the quarterback retires, he’ll be in the booth next season. If he returns for another campaign. the network will retain Olsen for at least another season.

The best-case scenario for Olsen is his budding reputation, helping him land a full-time job at another network. So far, the retired tight end has done his chances no harm.
