>> Romo is hardly an average or just above average quarterback. I am no Cowboys fan (you all know that), but Romo is actually one of the top passers in history in terms of numbers. Granted he hasn't had a full career (6-7 years?), and in terms of post seasons, it hasn't been all that.

But many would be shocked here at this.....he's has one of the top 5 career passer ratings in history, only behind Rodgers, Brady, Steve Young, and ...yes, he's tied with Peyton Manning in career rating.

I'm not shocked. Most of the time, Romo is very efficient. It just seems like he picks the worst times to *not* be so. You seemed to hit on the main difference when you say, "in terms of post seasons, it hasn't been all that". That's much of the yardstick here -- players are remembered and evaluated for greatness, in the end, by how much they excelled in the must-win "big games".

I don't have all the proof at the tip of my tongue here, but it seems like I've never seen Rodgers, Brady, Young or Manning meltdown in the postseason or in must-win situations as regularly as Romo seems to. That's why these other guys are considered as among the best of the best.
