    Post Why Tony Romo likes Buffalo as a dark horse contender to make a run in the playoffs

    Tony Romo was a guest on The Bill Simmons Podcast late last week and talked about who he thought could be a dark horse contender make a Super Bowl run.

    "To me, the Cardinals, and Buffalo would be the two dark horse teams," Romo said. "I'm not saying they're going to get there, but they are teams that have a quarterback who can do it and have a defensive system that I think could give teams trouble. … Sean McDermott, great coach for the Bills, and Josh Allen has rare ability, and he's still learning the game. I think your starting to see the flashes of how good he can be, it's just him learning."

    I have said before and will say again.....I would not be surprised in the least if the Bills get to the Super Bowl this year. No, I'm not saying they WILL....just that it would not surprise me one bit!!!

    Romo is a great color analyst now. Love him and Jim Nantz together. They make the games more fun to watch. Romo is loose and has moxie up there.

    Them, and Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth are my two favorite announcing teams

    Romo is on another level than everyone when he’s calling games. He calls plays before they happen. Super insightful and interesting.
    My faith doesn’t make me perfect, it makes me forgiven.

    Cris Collinsworth points out things that other people would not, as well...and he does it right away.

    Like them both.

    This is the same team that didn't win a single game before 1960.

    In fact, they have billions of years of history having never won a single game.

    This is obviously an omen for the future...

    Maybe he refused to take the call.

    The Bills are that team (along with the Titans) that nobody wants to play in the playoffs...

    I suspect that the performance of the offense has had a profound effect of the defense in that last year, the defense knew that they could not rely on the offense to pull off winning.

    Different personnel and opposing coaches have a lot to do with that as well.

    in other words, each year's team is different.....and strengths and weaknesses shift as each game of the season progresses. Star Lotulelie's opting out had a profound effect. Matt Milano playing injured most of the year has had an effect too.

    I suspect that the Bills defense will pick up the slack as the playoffs loom large. Should be fun to watch.
