Romo might be Witten's quarterback, but he's not an elite one

Hearing Dallas tight end Jason Witten rave about Tony Romo reminds me that it's time for a refresher course on elite quarterbacks, who they are and what constitutes them ... because Witten, apparently, has no idea.
That's not a knock on the guy. Terrific player. Stand-up person. Solid teammate. But no clue when it comes to elite quarterbacks.
He thinks Romo is one, but he's wrong. Tony Romo is a good quarterback. Tony Romo is a tough quarterback. Tony Romo is a winning quarterback. But Tony Romo is not an elite quarterback.
To qualify, you must win big games and win them consistently. You must do more than win an occasional division title, too. Getting to a Super Bowl would be nice. Winning one would be even better.
Last time I checked, Romo was oh-for-two there.
