Aikman was great when he had a top 5 defense and maybe the greatest ground game the NFL has ever seen. When he didn't have those things, and he was forced to carry a bad running game and a bad defense into the playoffs, he had the same problems that Romo had. Eventually when you have to heave it up enough times on a playoff caliber team that only expects the pass, bad things will happen.
Romo isn't in the Peyton or Brady category as a QB who can singlehandedly carry a bad running game and a bad defense to a Superbowl. That puts him in the category with a lot of other good QBs, including Aikman.
and the congregation says... AMEN!!
After all it is only Roger Staubach and Troy Aikman themselves saying Romo is a great QB who is asked to do too much. What do they know?
