Where does Tony Romo rank all time?
By Todd Archer
IRVING, Texas -- The NFL offseasons are built for rankings, top-10 lists, five-best signings, five-worst signings.
Chase Stuart at footballperspective.com has ranked NFL quarterbacks in history a few times and his recent ranking has Tony Romo ranked fairly high all time and among current quarterbacks.
You can read about the methodology used in the rankings here and see the entire list here.
Romo is ranked No. 23 all time. Roger Staubach checked in at No. 14. Where is Troy Aikman? He came in at No. 38. The last time these rankings were put together Staubach was No. 15, Romo No. 30 and Aikman No. 42.
Among the active quarterbacks, Romo is behind Peyton Manning (No. 1), Tom Brady (No. 2), Drew Brees (No. 7), Aaron Rodgers (No. 16) and Philip Rivers (No. 21). The next active quarterback after Romo is Ben Roethlisberger (No. 32), and he’s won two Super Bowls.
It’s an interesting look and offers up debates that make the “greatest quarterback of all time” debate so lively.
