I don't know how many analysts would peg Romo as a top-five quarterback.  From what I see, Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Ben Roethlisberger, Donovan McNabb, Kurt Warner, and probably Brett Favre are rated better than him.  At best, he would be ranked with Philip Rivers, Eli Manning, Aaron Rodgers, Carson Palmer, Matt Hasselbeck, Jay Cutler, Joe Flacco, and Matt Ryan.  He gets a lot of press because he's quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys.  Mediocre-to-decent quarterbacks like Danny White, Gary Hogeboom, and Quincy Carter have gotten a lot of press because they were quarterbacks for the Dallas Cowboys.  Romo isn't horrible, and he's a legit starting quarterback in the NFL.  Are there better starting players at the position in the NFL?  Definitely.  Are there worse starting players at the position in the NFL?  Definitely.

Good points on Romo.
He's in the top 10 for 2010, IMO

1. Peyton
2. Brees
3. Warner
4. Favre
5 Rivers
6. Rogers
7. McNabb
8. Eli
9. Ben
10. Romo

Alot of guys, like Carson Palmer and Matt Hasselback, are getting by on reputation only. I never thought I'd rank Warner that high, but if I had to put my life on the line and have one of these QB's save it, that's how I'd draft 'em for this year at least.
