    Yes, I know another Romo thread but this one, i just wanna know where people rank Tony.. the talk around here some super romo fans talk about him like he's best in the league while others talk like he's the worst.

    I'll go on record and say that at this very moment taking in all factors, Romo is about the 7th to 10th best QB in the league. I'm putting him ahead of rookies, untested QBs and scrubs that don't deserve a QB job and just below the elite tier.

    To me he's around the Ryan, Flacco, Schraub range..

    While his bad games drop him out of the elite tier, the guys below him haven't been as good as he's been for as long as he's been a starter..


    i just wanna get a consensus.. and also ask a question, are there ten in their prime QB's you'd rather have then Tony?

    He's definitely top 5 to me. I'd put Rodgers, Brady, and Brees over him.

    i have them, both Mannings and Big Ben ahead of him, the rest of the top ten are close.. Peyton may have fallen off but I'm giving him a slight pass for the injury right now. Eli is clutch is Big Ben the same I feel.

    10 to 12. Not to bad out of 32, but we want number 1 for the Cowboy QB!

    Missed an entire year, and neck surgery, and in his 4th game back has already surpassed Romo. I'd take Peyton any day over Tony, and so would 90% of GM's.

    He's still top 5. He, like every QB that ever played, needs more balance in the offense though. AKA better run blocking so that we can be more effective in that area and keep defenses honest.

    Drew Brees's Saints are 0-4...

    If he is so good, why is he better than Romo?

    See, this is what fools don't understand. It's a team game, not a one man show.

    Rodger's team is 2-2, same as Romo at this point in time.

    Yeah, yeah, they won a SB. But, they did not do it all by their self...they had a team that helped.

    Anyway, yeah, Romo sucks and will suck until he has someone else to help him.

    Especially the bolded statements.

    It's a team game.. It's shocking that some people don't realize this

    Top 10 for sure, probably top 8. He's definitely above Flacco in my book. Maybe just outside of top 5 if I were to sit down and look at each QB. His problem is usually trying to do too much when things get out of control. He wants to win and presses. Something similar to what dwarecwby311 posted.

    I'm a huge Romo supporter. But if you ask any GM to pick between the 3, Romo would be picked third more than likely. Rodgers would be at the top of the list.

    Aaron Rodgers #4? C'mon now. I know he hasn't played his best football so far this season, but neither have those other guys. The man had argurably the best season last year for a quarterback and won the MVP award. He should be #1.

    What a ridiculous question. :rolleyes: Brees has won 5 playoff games including a SB win. He has a SB MVP award and holds several NFL passing records. He's passed for over 5000 yards 3 times which no other QB has ever done. Before Brees arrived in NO the Saints had arguably the worst history of any team in the NFL.

    They were best known for losing and fans wearing bags over their heads in disgust during games. The Saints are currently 0-4 because the franchise was turned upside down due to bounty gate and they don't have their head coach.

    Stafford and Rivers are not top ten QBS lol..

    And yes its a team game and its not all on Romo imo but the way some talk here, he's either the best in the league or the worst.. Glad to see that consensus has it mostly where anyone who knows football has Romo.
