Seriously a joke. So that means that he has Rivers, Flacco, Cutler higher. Are you kidding me?
It's Jaws...take him for what he is
Jaws is an Eagle and hates Romo. 10 for Jaws is like 5 for anyone else.
and 5 is about right IMO
I've always liked Jaws. Personally, I think Romo's top-5, but there are enough good QBs out there that you can justify the order shifting in that second tier quite a bit. Anywhere in the top-10 I'm not going to consider it a slight.
Just more media poo...this national obsession with ranking players is seriously getting out of hand.
Agree. I wouldn't rate him below Flacco but you can make the argument. He's a #4-8 guy IMO.
I can't be as forgiving. I just don't see any reasonable justification for believing there are 9 QBs better than Tony Romo.
Jay Cutler? Joe Flacco?
This isn't a fan ranking these guys. This is supposed to be an NFL analyst ranking these guys for the "Worldwide Leader in Sports".
Romo's numbers are better than both Cutler and Flacco. So if an NFL analyst is going to defy the numbers for his rankings, he'd better have a darn good justification for doing so.
So what exactly is Jaws' justification?
Playoff wins, even though football is a team sport?
That may explain Flacco's ranking... but Cutler also has just 1 playoff win, and his overall win % is barely over .500. Oh, and he sat out much of the NFC Championship game because he had a boo-boo.
Or is it "clutch factor", even though Romo's 4th quarter QB rating (best among active QBs), among other stats, prove that the popular perception of Romo doesn't meet reality?
That's it. Those are the two silly criticisms of Romo, and the entire justification for the sports world to continue to underrate the guy despite his jaw-dropping numbers. 2nd best QB rating of all-time, yet only the 10th best QB today? Yeah, that makes sense. Not.
Guess I can't blame Jaws too much for his density. He's merely another sheep who's allowed popular opinion to cloud his better judgment.
I'd rank Romo over Cutler but I have no problem with the reverse. Cutler is a pretty damn good QB.
give the guy a break....they bought out his contract for monday night football.
so basically they paid him to leave, because yes, he was that terrible at announcing.
Even though Romo puts up much better stats while winning a much higher % of his games?
I'd love to hear one reasonable justification for ranking Jay Cutler ahead of Romo. Just one.
I don't understand why so many people love Flacco and Cutler.
It's one thing to like them as QBs, but another to regard them so highly. I don't get it, either.
Jaws spends hours breaking down game film. I honestly don't think he would let his personal dislike of the Cowboys get in the way of his analysis of the QB position. I completely disagree with him ranking Cutler and Flacco above Romo. Rivers is not far fetched. I'd be interested to hear Jaws' explanation for ranking Cutler and Flacco above Romo.
Easy...they were high drafted QBs. If you're even serviceable as a drafted QB, you are deemed amazing.
I have a big problem with Flacco being ahead of Romo. They guy sucks. Did anyone see the playoff game against the Texans? Awful. He has tunnel vision in the pocket and when it breaks down, he is done.
Cutler is a turn over machine. I can't even believe he cracked the top 10.
Disagree completely. Anyone who doesn't have Romo in the top 5 doesn't know football. Saying Cutler or Flacco is better is just asinine, moronic, idiotic, stupid, blasphemous.
I've been Pro-Romo since he became a starter, but I have him 7th until he has some post-season success (which I think is only a matter of time).
Rodgers, Brady, Brees, Peyton (if he returns to form), Eli, Ben.
That's a little over the top. I could see someone rating Brady, Rodgers, E Manning, P Manning, the Rapist, Brees and an argument can be made for Rivers. That is 6 or 7, I agree about Flacco and Cutler not being better, but a sound argument can be made for the other 6. It's a matter of opinion.
