Romo Ranks in the Top 10 in Both Passer Rating Systems

Tony Romo might have had his problems helping the Cowboys to close out games, but he has not had any problems with his stat sheet.

He ranks #5 all time in career passer rating, trailing Aaron Rodgers, Steve Young, Philip Rivers, and Tom Brady. The Cowboy QB who is next highest on the list is Roger Staubach at #31.

Under the traditional passer-rating format, Romo ranks #9 this year. Here are the top 10:

1. Aaron Rodgers, 122.9
2. Tom Brady, 109.5
3. Alex Smith, 104.1
4. Eli Manning, 102.3
5. Drew Brees, 102.3
6. Matthew Stafford, 100.4
7. Ryan Fitzpatrick, 96.4
8. Matt Hasselbeck, 95.9
9. Tony Romo, 92.9
10. Matt Schaub, 92.5

Earlier this year, ESPN unveiled its Total QBR system, which considers a number of factors not considered in the traditional system. Here is a guide to understanding Total QBR, which is rather complicated. Romo right now ranks #6 after week 5.

1. Aaron Rodgers, 84.8
2. Tom Brady, 84.2
3. Matt Hasselbeck, 77.7
4. Drew Brees, 77.3
5. Ryan Fitzpatrick, 73.1
6. Tony Romo, 72.8
7. Chad Henne, 62.6
8. Philip Rivers, 62.0
9. Matthew Stafford, 61.4
10. Michael Vick, 61.3
