Winning three SB's sure hasn't stopped Tom Brady from getting back to the SB.
After the 3rd SB we never even made it back to the NFC championship game which was unacceptable. Tom on the other hand as reached 2 more SB's after his 3rd SB ring.
You didn't answer the question why do you think Romo is better than Aikman? If you're going to make a statement like that along with making an even stronger statement that Aikman wasn't that good at least man up and give a reason why. You're going to put all the blame on Aikman for the Cowboys not continuing to win? The Cowboys were declining due to age, poor drafts and free agency that was eating away at the great team Jimmy built. Losing Jimmy after the 93 season certainly didn't help. Every year the Cowboys were losing contributors it started catching up with the team by 96 along with age. Erik Williams had a car accident in 94 and was never the same player again.
This added to the decline of the OL. Jay Novacek's last game was SB XXX he was forced to retire because of a lingering back injury. Novacek was a huge loss to the Cowboys and Aikman. Go back and look at all the players the Cowboys lost to free agency from 92 to 2000. Irvin was forced to retire in 99 so Aikman had no receivers to throw to. The 2000 Cowboys weren't a whole lot better than the Cowboy team Aikman started with in 89.
The 2000 team was an aging team that had little talent left and was poorly coached which is why the Cowboys could only manage 15 wins the next 3 seasons. Romo has only won one playoff game and his team is about to miss the playoffs for a 3rd straight season. While Troy Aikman was the QB of the Cowboys they never went 3 seasons in a row without making the playoffs. Romo will never sniff the HOF and may never even play in another playoff game again with the regressing team and head coach he has. Aikman appeared in almost as many SB's as Romo has playoff games. Make your case as to why you think Romo is better than Aikman and let's see how it holds up to cross examination.
