Actually, Aikman was asked if he thought Norv Turner was the best play caller in the NFL, and he paused before answering. Then he said yes he does believe he is.
I thought his pause before answering was telling, as if he had to make sure he was answering about play calling specifically and not head coaching.
This was also a few days before Aikman was to call the Cowboys-Giants game on Sunday, knowing full well that Jason Garrett is the play caller here. When he answered yes for Norv, Aikman made no attempts to bring Garrett in the conversation. I was certain he would and found it striking that he didn't.
