It didn’t take long for Cowboys fans to start doubting their so-called quarterback prodigy and clamoring for the one they pushed away. Tony Romo heard from the fans Thursday near his booth in Dallas’ AT&T Stadium, where he was part of CBS’ broadcast team for the Cowboys’ alarming 28-6 loss to the Chargers. Dak Prescott couldn’t muster much of anything, throwing for just 179 yards along with two interceptions. The Cowboys’ former franchise quarterback, who retired after last season and began a new career in television, was seen on camera smiling as fans in Cowboys jerseys turned toward him and called out his name. “We love you Romo!” one spectator shouted before a “Romo, Romo, Romo” chant broke out. Once the Cowboys’ big hope, Romo handed the reins over to Prescott last season after the rookie led Dallas to the NFC East title and a berth in the NFC divisional round, where they lost to the Packers. Approaching age 37 and continuing to recover from a back injury he suffered in the 2016 preseason, Romo moved on from football in April when he announced his retirement.
