Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has yet to appear on the NFL Network’s annual “Top 100” ranking, which means that, in all likelihood, he won’t be on it at all. After all, he’s never been ranked higher than No. 71 on the list, and he was ranked No. 91 last year. Since then, all he’s done is lead Dallas to yet another 8-8 season.
Which is to say, there’s no apparent reason that he would make such a huge jump from last year to this year. The highest ranking Cowboy thus far is Dez Bryant, who came in at No. 35. Tight end Jason Witten made the cut at No. 41, and there seems a good chance that Ware will find himself in the “Top 100” before it’s all said and done.
But Romo isn’t losing any sleep over his absence from the list.
"Until I see one person who is a Dallas Cowboy who votes on that stuff--I figure at some point they would ask me, Jason Witten or DeMarcus Ware to vote--I think then maybe it’s a vote by the players," Romo said, per ESPN Dallas. "But the four people who vote, I think, I just don’t think it matters too much."
