Tony Romo not worried about rankings

June, 12, 2013
IRVING, Texas -- Tony Romo and Dez Bryant have different perspectives on the on-going NFL's Top 100 list.

Bryant is honored to be No. 35 on the list.

Romo, whose name hasn't appeared on the list and may not be on it at all, questioned the validity of the list which is comprised of a poll of NFL players and distributed by

"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. "But the four people who vote, I think, I just don’t think it matters too much."

Romo was No. 91 last year and No. 71 in 2011.

"I know this, I would have a hard time telling you who was great in the AFC last year," Romo said. "You go by what's written about and what's talked about. Once again, like I said, that stuff is fun to talk about. I enjoy taking a peek and seeing what's happening. OK, cool, then it goes on to the next day."

Bryant made his debut on the list after catching 92 passes for 1,382 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2012. He caught a touchdown pass in seven consecutive games, with the streak ending in the regular season finale against the Washington Redskins.

"That's pretty cool," Bryant said of the No. 35 ranking. "I was really honored and couldn't believe I was 35. If anything, you would (want to) be a lot lower, but big thanks to the NFL guys who voted for me."
Calvin Watkins joined in September 2009. He's covered the Cowboys since 2006 and also has covered colleges, boxing and high school sports.
