Today on NFLN, Michael Irvin appeared as a correspondent on Inside Training Camp Live. When host Andrew Siciliano asked him about the expectations for Tony Romo in 2013, Irvin, without being too direct, implied that the media has a bias against the Cowboys QB. Below is a transcript of part of that conversation:
Siciliano: "How is Romo different this year in this offense? Bill Callahan is calling the plays now, but let's talk about how that affects the quarterback. He had leads in the fourth quarter last year that the defense couldn't hold. Is he in a better position to win now that things have changed a bit in play calling?"
Irvin: Drew, you know, you sure 'they' don't mind you doing this? Because you just gave Tony Romo a compliment in the studio and that's not something that comes out of..."
Siciliano jokingly interjects: "I'll be called to the office later."
Irvin continues: "...Culver City much. Exactly now. Don't want you to get any demerits for doing that stuff. So be careful, I might add, to give you the truth here."
