Aikman Says Romo is a Better QB Than He Ever Was! What are your thoughts?
Troy Aikman did have the best offensive line in football, a hall of fame running back and hall of fame WR, not to mention a great defense. Did all of this mask his true ability and make him appear better? According to Aikman himself, it did, because he thinks Romo is a better quarterback than he ever was. What does everyone think of this?
Well,I don't think that there is any question that Troy Aikman was surrounded by better players than Tony Romo is .I am not sure if Tony Romo is a natural born leader like Troy Aikman was though.That is a vital personality trait that a quarterback needs to have.
I agree. Romo may be a better athlete but he's definitely not the leader that Aikman was. It's not all about talent, especially at the QB position. Sanchez has talent but he's not a leader, which is why the Jets haven't been able to win a championship with him at QB. (well, one of the many reasons).
It shows that Aikman has some class and is probably partly why Aikman was such a good quarterback. Yes he eventually had a great team around him, but he also started out his rookie year going 1-15. He ended up with 3 Super Bowl rings has the highest Super Bowl completion percentage of all-time. No offense to Romo, but I think Aikman is just being nice. Some of Romo's stats may stand up to Aikmans, that is partly because it is a passing league now. Winning the big games is what sets Aikman apart.
Emmit Smith alone would have made Aikman more successful than Romo. Tony has the talent but Dallas has no chemistry on the team, is that the leadership at QB, the head coach, or Jerry Jones fault?

This guy told me to chill out on my criticism of Joe Flacco. What I criticize is his 77 quarterback rating. Someone says that Flacco is better than both Romo and Eli, I say no way he is better than neither. I think it's close between Romo and Manning I think Romo puts up better numbers but Manning...

Who is the best among the 4 NFL NFC East quarterback - Griffin, Romo, Eli Manning or Vick? It seems that this division is a powerhouse when it comes to QB. Who do you think will shine more and help their team to win this season? Griffin is a newbie quarterback but he had a good record in college...

I think Tony Romo is highly over rated and don't think he will ever win a super bowl, any thoughts?

A lot of so-called 'experts' are saying that if Peyton Manning wins the Super Bowl on Sunday he will be considered the best ever at his position. I never got to see some of the greats play because I'm too young, but I'm starting to think that Peyton could be the best ever. I've never seen anybody...

Is Romo the real problem of Dallas Cowboys or is it Jerry Jones, or both? Are we expecting too much?December this season is pretty good for Romo in terms of numbers, but when it is time to deliver and win, he failed again.
