Don't compare Tony Romo to SB-winning QBs

|Fitzsimmons & Durrett discuss Tony Romo's contract extension and what it says about Jerry Jones.
How can the Cowboys give Romo a $108 million contract with one playoff victory, three Pro Bowl appearances and a 1-6 mark in win-or-go-home games?
The market dictates so is one reason and another is the Cowboys believe Romo can deliver on a Super Bowl championship. But comparing Romo to the Manning Brothers, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers and Ben Roethlisberger is almost unfair because these men have won Super Bowl titles.
So why not compare Romo's resume to some other good quarterbacks who haven't won a Super Bowl. We picked the following: Matt Ryan, Matt Schaub, Jay Cutler and Philip Rivers
Below is a statistical comparison:
|QB||W-L||Playoffs||4Q-GW||4,000-yd. seasons||30+ TDs||15+ INTs|
Is Romo better than Ryan? Better than Schaub? Is Romo worth the money after comparing him to other quarterbacks?
