Tony Romo not fazed by Top 100 omission

They also don't consider Romo to be one of the top 14 quarterbacks.
On Thursday, NFL Network continued to reveal their top 100 players of 2013 by showing the players ranked between 11 and 20. Romo didn't make the cut, but four other quarterbacks did, meaning the final three QB spots are most likely going to Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady.
So which quarterbacks have been ranked ahead of Romo?
Here you go: No. 11 Drew Brees, No. 15 Robert Griffin III, No. 17 Matt Ryan, No. 19 Joe Flacco, No. 23 Andrew Luck, No. 43 Eli Manning, No. 46 Cam Newton, No. 51 Russell Wilson, No. 61 Ben Roethlisberger, No. 76 Matthew Stafford and No. 81 Colin Kaepernick.
The voting is supposed to be based off how a player performed in 2012. But regardless of the criteria, Romo, who ranked No. 91 last year and No. 72 in 2011, wasn't too concerned about the ranking when asked about it last week.
"Until I see one person who's a Dallas Cowboy who votes on that stuff, I would figure at some point they'd ask me, Jason Witten or DeMarcus Ware to vote," Romo said. "I think then maybe it's a vote by the players. But the four people who vote, I just don't think it matters too much. I know this, I would have a hard time telling you who was great in the AFC last year. You just go by what's written about and talked about."
Former two-time league MVP and Super Bowl champion quarterback Kurt Warner ranked Romo 10th on his list of NFL's top QBs. The NFL Network analyst said Tuesday that Romo, "should be on this list, no question about it."
It appears that the only Cowboys to make the list are DeMarcus Ware (No. 12), Dez Bryant (No. 35) and Jason Witten (No. 41).
