Dallas Cowboys: Where Does Tony Romo Rank Among NFL QBs?

Antonio Ramiro “Tony” Romo is the starting quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys. He’s also one of the most reviled quarterbacks in the NFL.

Romo is criticized at every shoulder turn when he releases the football, as he calls hike or as he exits the team bus.

Ever since Tony bobbled the snap in that infamous Seattle playoff game, he’s received an unfair amount of condemnation. Now don’t get me wrong, some of it is warranted, like when Tony tries to forces the ball in between five defenders.

But the rest of it just seems to be crazy chatter. Just take a look at Romo’s stat line over the past few seasons.

He has 9,536 passing yards, 63 touchdowns and 30 interceptions. Honestly, how many teams wouldn’t love to have a quarterback with that stat line?

Romo has one playoff win in four-and-a-half years as starter, but that one playoff win is the only one the ‘Boys have had in the past 15 seasons. As he played behind an inconsistent offensive line and inept play calling at times, I would say that Antonio has done a pretty good job.

The Cowboys play in one of the toughest and roughest divisions in the NFC East, and there is tough quarterback competition from three of the four teams. Eli Manning has a Super Bowl ring as a Giant, Michael Vick just signed a $100 million deal with the Eagles and Romo is being pushed to take Dallas to the next level.

So where does he rank amongst the best quarterbacks in the league?

Peep the slideshow to find out where I think Tony falls.
