Former NFL quarterback and now broadcaster Tony Romo joins Jimmy Kimmel for an interview while imitating some big-name quarterbacks movements.
As the two talk about old times, Kimmel brings up one of Tony Romo’s hidden talents, his ability to perfectly depict different quarterback stances.
“I seem to recall being at a restaurant with you, at which time you did the stances of various quarterbacks,” says Kimmel. “You know what I’m talking about?”
“Never,” laughs Romo. “I don’t remember that at all. This is the first I’ve heard of this. I’ll go ahead and make it look okay.”
Tony Romo Impersonates Quarterbacks
As requested, Tony Romo first does the six-time Super Bowl champion, Tom Brady impression. He stands up and laughs while adjusting the camera, saying, “This is the best I’ve got. I’m telling you this is silly.”
Romo claps his hands together, gives a little hop, looks to the right and then left, gives another leap, looks around once more, and then “throws” it to the right while following through with a straight arm all the way across his body.
Next, Romo mimics the five-time MVP Colts and Broncos quarterback, Peyton Manning.
Romo claps to signal the snap and begins holding up his arms and waving them while pointing right and left. Again, Romo claps and continues moving his arms all around. Finally, he gets the ball and begins doing fast feet as he decides where he is going to throw it. He fakes a throw, moves around some more before throwing it to the left.
As the last description, Romo decides to “go back in time” to act like the eleven-time Pro Bowler and three-time NFL MVP, Brett Favre.
Romo mumbles some words as he claps for the snap. He puts both his arms down by his waist, and begins hopping around on his toes while looking side to side. Once he has secured a target, he quickly chucks the football at his player from the side of his body like a missile. He does it once more for dramatic effect.
Romo, 40, retired from the NFL in April of 2017 but was hired by CBS Sport to serve as an analyst for NFL games. In February of this year, Romo renewed his contract with CBS until 2022 for $17 million a year.
