    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.

    I haven't had a chance to look at the links in detail, but generally speaking I think it's wise to wait till a guy's career is over before giving him an "all time" ranking.

    Did I read you right? Tony is above Troy??? If true, it's a pointless read...

    I anticipate this thread being at least 12 pages long by the time it's locked.

    another stats junkie who doesn't have a clue. Just go watch Aikman on film in his prime. Romo is not in the same ballpark.

    Any ranking system that has Roger at #14 is not credible or valid.

    And Troy at #38?

    Nothing to see here.

    I'd put him around 25 for right now.

    Why would any sane Cowboys fan have a problem with what he said?

    Troy get's underrated in stats-type analysis, imo.
    Plus it's a different game now.

    Still, I'll state the obvious wishing we still had the beat the dead horse emicon.....

    It's a team game.

    Once again I go back to what Jimmy Johnson said.

    Troy Aikman sacrificed his stats for the team concept. If he had been turned loose he could have had Marino stats. But that is not what we wanted. So Troy abided by the team concept instead of his personal stats.

    I paraphrase, but this is what he said when Troy retired.

    This is why stats mean nothing to me.

    Because if we got into it, do you really think Emmitt would have owned the all time rushing leader stat if Barry Sanders didn't up and retire early?

    Troy himself has said Romo's better than he ever was. But what would Troy know about how good a player he was?
