Romo Drops In Top 100 Players Rankings

Tony Romo's 2011 season was perhaps his finest, statistically, but the Cowboys' failure to make the playoffs and a couple mistakes he made along the way seem to be overshadowing that.

For the second straight year, NFL Network is counting down the league's top 100 players, as voted on by the athletes themselves. After coming in at No. 72 last year, Romo has fallen to No. 91 for 2012.

Brothers Jordan Babineaux of the Tennessee Titans and Jonathan Babineaux of the Atlanta Falcons made the case for Romo to be included.

Of course, the list is completely debatable. Romo was ranked only one spot ahead of blocking fullback John Kuhn of the Packers, and four places higher than throwing fullback Tim Tebow of the Jets.

The very washed up Donovan McNabb came in at No. 100 in last year's rankings.

And No. 91 a year ago?

It was wide receiver Terrell Owens, who didn't play, but is now in the running for the Indoor Football League's Top 100 list.
