    When a quarterback makes the jump to claim a spot among the top five players at that position, the move is usually accompanied by a high-profile achievement like winning a Super Bowl or breaking a statistical record.

    That hasn't been the case for Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. He has only one career playoff win to his credit, hasn't topped the 40-touchdown or 4,500-passing-yard marks and has never been named to an All-Pro team.

    The lack of these achievements has held back the general perception of where Romo rates in the NFL passing hierarchy, but the truth of the matter is the evidence shows that he is now one of the top five quarterbacks in the league.

    Superior route-depth metrics.....

    You have to be an ESPN Insider to read the rest but I figured the headline is enough.

    I too find this laughable... but if you step back and think about it, his targets have sucked more than he has the past couple years.

    Austin fell off the map after he fucked the Kardashian whore... Dez Bryant is a perpetual childish cunt... hell, the one highlight of the season last year was the emergence of Laurent Robinson, who came out of career obscurity to put up some numbers and then cashed in with a new contract in Tampa Bay.

    Their running game has sucked fat donky cock the past few years. Tashard Choice... bleh. Being saddled with Jerruh's failed draft pick of Felix Jones. Demarco shows lots of promise, but let's watch him stay healthy for 16 games before he's hailed as a solution.

    So, all that being said, Romo is still a goofy "not sure if he really cares" kind of character... but how can you say that after he played with broken ribs, etc?

    I think he wants to win, but his supporting cast has been Witten, and that's it for the past couple seasons. If you get people around him that also want to win, we'd have a much different story.

    And that's all on Jerry Jones, not Tony Romo.

    Tony Romo is a good QB and can still win with the right people. The only thing I question is his love for the game or lack their of. This became apparent to me when he went on vacation during a bye week before a playoff game. That told me he just doesnt care enough.

    Well if you name your top 5 in the league right now who would they be?
    Eli Manning
    Tom Brady
    Peyton Manning
    These three are a given but after that??

    Drew Brees?
    Ben Roethlesberger?

    True, Romo's probably not even in the top ten.
