Deion Sanders goes scorched earth on ringless Tony Romo

Tony Romo dropped a minor burn on Deion Sanders during the CBS broadcast yesterday, noting that Kansas City's Marcus Peters "makes Deion Sanders looks good at tackling".

Sanders didn't appreciate the comments, criticizing Romo and his playing career. In this game, Deion Sanders-batting leadoff despite hitting.158 that year-knocked what should have been a pretty standard base hit.

Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo learned the hard way this weekend that it's never a good idea to talk smack about someone as quick and as harsh with his comebacks as Deion Sanders.

Regardless, Sanders didn't appreciate Romo's comment, and on the NFL Network's NFL GameDay Prime Sunday night, the former cornerback didn't hold back his punches, pointing out that he wanted "to take the high road", but he didn't know the address.

"You're 2-4 in the playoffs, you ain't won nothing". I tried to bury the hatchet.

The service will be made available in Phoenix, Arizona over the next few months, Waymo's chief executive John Krafcik said. Those who participated in the "early rider" program will also have the chance to access these fully self-driving cars.

"Tony, what's going on man?" he continued. I got a lot of ammunition, man.

"I got a gold jacket that I didn't buy", Sanders said referring to his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Come on, man, you threw to everyone but me. Dak (Prescott) says hi, and bye.

Sanders also added an extra jab on Twitter, again calling out Romo for failing to win any rings in Dallas. "You ain't won nothin"! How many interceptions-19 in 2012? Even Eagles fans appeared to enjoy Romo's broadcasting talents, though a joke he told during the Birds Week 7 match-up against Washington fell completely flat. "Com'on man, you threw to everybody but me".

If you know anything about Sanders, he doesn't like to be insulted.
