Before Cowboy fans get mad over this, the reason for his low placement is due to him being injured for most of the season.
With that said, him being on the list at all is because of his strong performances in the games he was in. He was the only Cowboy's quarterback to win multiple games as starter.
In the games that he won, he completed 72% of his completions for 778 yards (259.3 per game), threw 5 TDs, with 4 picks.
The future seems well defined for Romo, likely to start every game for Dallas that he is healthy for. However age and injury could catch up to him very quickly, so these next few years could be focused just as much on helping to develop a young signal caller to replace him as it would be about playing and winning games.
Next up, #25
Hint: A jaw dropping contract.
