Who else are QBs in Romo's draft class to compare him to?

    Was just thinking about this earlier when the analysts from the Sunday night game said it was Grossman's 4th year. This is also Romo's 4th year. Overall I feel much more comfortable with Romo because I think Grossman's strong arm let's him make plays, but it also gets him in trouble because he forces things.

    What other QBs were in Romo's draft class (funny to say, considering Romo wasn't drafted) and how do they compare?

    Palmer matched Romo's numbers in one half.

    Granted he still lost, but 20/23 286 yards 2 TD in one half is ridiculous.

    I'd have to agree. The only ones I'd even consider along with Romo would be Palmer, Leftwich, and Grossman, but I've already stated by concerns with Grossman, and Leftwich is currently riding the bench in Jax.

    I'm very suprised that Palmer has already been in the league for 4 years.

    Post injury Palmer doesnt look half bad throwing for over 400 yards, 3 TD's and over 70% completion against the so called second best D team in the NFL

    to be honest i think its more of their OL having injuries although im sure that the injury has affected him but whatever it is he is still a pretty damn good QB although theres no doubt he was better last year which was before the injury so its probably a combination of both

    Carson was put in that position. Romo racked up almost 300 yards against Giants in 2nd half. If Crayton hooks he makes that catch(total close to 300 for Romo) that went for INT.

    Sometimes you just get lucky boys.
    '79 Niners draft Joe Montana in the 3rd round
    '69 'Boys take Roger Staubach in the 11th round
    '00 Pats select Tom Brady in the sixth round
    '03 Jake Delhomme walks on to the Panthers as a career backup from free agency.
    '95 mark Brunell is traded for a late round pick to Jaguars after being drafted late by Packers
    '97 Matt Hasselback is drafted late by Packers and traded for a bag of beans to Seattle.
    2006' Tony Romo rides the Cowboys bench for three seasons as a backup quarterback after making the team as an undrafted free agent, upon starting he leads Dallas to a Super Bowl three-peat.

    (I'm speculating about the last part)
