8. Tony Romo, Cowboys

  • 2014: 113.2 QB Rating, 3,705 Yards, 34 TD, 9 INT

Like Rivers, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo also deals with the non-championship stigma at the position.

What many don’t understand, though, is that it takes 53 to win a title, not one.

Romo, now 35 years old, is one of the more underrated signal callers in the game. His accuracy has always been solid; arm strength always a plus; and mobility is second to only a few.

What Romo does best is perform at a high level when things break down around him. This attribute is actually one of the more important at the position.

Romo can deliver a strike in the pocket, or throw a dime on the run should the pocket collapse. It’s this versatility that has him ranked No. 8.


The only thing left for the guy (aside from topping Carrie Underwood on a personal level), is raising his level of play in the postseason, when his team needs it most.
