Romo in 5th Place in Pro Bowl Balloting

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo has moved into 5th place on the Pro Bowl ballot, despite being a very late addition, John Clayton reports.

Romo making Pro Bowl ballot splash: The Tony Romo push is making some headway. Although he was only added to the Pro Bowl ballot a couple weeks ago, Romo jumped to fifth in the NFC quarterback voting. His 326,127 votes put him within reach of the Marc Bulger (346,925) and Rex Grossman (348,466), who are fourth and third. Donovan McNabb is No. 2 but he’s out for the season. There is no way Romo will catch Drew Brees, who has 759,643. Fan votes counts for one third of the total, and fans have until Friday to cast their ballot. With Romo within reach of the top four, there’s a good chance players and coaches will vote him into a backup spot. By the way, Romo passed Eli Manning to move into fifth place.

Assuming he plays the next three games like his first three rather than the stinker against New Orleans, it’s definitely well deserved. He is quite likely the 2nd best quarterback in the NFC this season, despite sitting on the bench the first six weeks.
