    If former Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo thought facing blitzing linebackers was a tough gig, he hasn't seen anything yet.

    Former CBS sideline reporter Bonnie Bernstein took to Twitter Tuesday slamming Romo following a report the retiring QB was heading to CBS and potentially ousting lead NFL analyst Phil Simms. Bernstein took note of Romo's lack of television experience despite walking into the highly-coveted television role.

    Tony Romo ended his NFL career Tuesday after 14 season with the Dallas Cowboys and announced he would join CBS Sports in its lead broadcasting booth.

    Romo, who will be paired with play-by-play announcer Jim Nantz, considered multiple network offers along with whether he wanted to pursue a Super Bowl elsewhere after losing the starting job in Dallas last season, a person told The Associated Press on Tuesday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because Romo hasn't discussed his plans publicly. A CBS spokeswoman did not immediately return messages seeking comment.

    But late Tuesday afternoon Romo took to Twitter himself, casting any doubts to his destination aside.

    The departure of the all-time passing leader from the storied franchise has been expected since November, when Romo conceded the job to rookie Dak Prescott after missing 10 weeks with a back injury.
