Why isn't Tony Romo the starting nfc quarterback?

his stats look a lot better than brett favre's.

Update:

EDIT: i just checked and found out that most of favre's stats are better than romo's. (only by a tiny bit though)

    Don't you mean Romessica?

    Favre gets "elder statesman" status, much the way Elway and Marino did near the end of their careers.

    It's both a tribute and respect. Fans want to see that.

    Favre is the starter not Romo for a couple reasons. First of all, he is considerably the best QB ever. Second, this may be his last season and that makes a wonderful story for the NFL. Last, the NFL is a business, they make more money with Favre as the starter. The NFL has not been about putting the best players in the Pro Bowl for many years, probably before you were born.

    I would say because Favre is the greatest QB to lace em up and Romo isn't good enough to carry Favres jock strap. Something like that. Also Favre had the most votes, more then any other player. Just another thing he happens to be #1 in.

    First, Brett Favre got more vote..

    Second, Brett Favre broke Dan Marino TD, and Yard Passing record..

    Third, Brett Favre got this R-E-S-P-E-C-T.. respect from NFL fans..

    Well when you have an all star crew like Romo (11 pro bowlers) and haven't been asked to carry his team most of the seaon like favre has, that's why. Give Favre either Jason Witten or T.O. and he'd easily have 35+ TDs.

    1. Because Favre is a legend and Romo is not

    2. Because Favre is having one of the best years of his storied career, and Romo has choked the past couple games

    3. Because after the NFC Championship, it will be obvious

    Because he has jason whitten, terrell owens, and some other scrub that is supposedly good. Brett favre has none really, maybe driver. O yeah, and cuz favre is the best quarterback in NFL history?

    well it probably comes down to farve being the superior QB.

    Oh yeah, he is a proven winner too.

    Romosexual is not.

    Farve is a better sale to the public than Romo is.

    because the pro bowl is a popularity contest
