..as far as who Bledsoe reminds me of. Aikman was not the type of QB who won a lot of games in the 4th Qt or in the last 2 minutes or in OT's. Mostly because Aikman's teams had a more dominating defense and he usually had the lead going away into the 4th Qt. and rarely had to pull games out at the end. He did it, but it wasn't the thing he was known for. And in doing so, you usually have to throw the heck out of the ball in those situations because 4 yds with handing off to the RB isn't going to get it in the Zone when time and score is against you. Bledsoe has shown me, beyond any doubt, that if he's given time, the OL and the WR's..he can get it done. He'll make bad decisions at times like with the Raiders and not seeing Witten at the end.. ..but the bottom line is this offense and these coaches beleive they are never out of the game, that Bledsoe is in control and that he and they will find a way to win if it's up to them. I haven't seen that sort of Cowboy QB since Roger Staubach was our QB. Aikman was successful but his strengths were running the Norv Turner/Zampese gameplan of Emmitt left/right/center and dink to Novachek and go downfield 15 yds to Irvin and control the clock. Aikman wasn't called upon to throw the team out of trouble or to pull out last second wins. Aikman would hardly ever throw for more that 20 passes a game and 25% of those would be to Emmitt on a swing pass..not throwing daggers at the heart downfield at the defensive secondary like a Staubach did or Bledsoe does now. So while it's popular to hear that the Cowboys haven't a had a QB like this since Troy left town.. I beg to differ. They haven't had one like this since Staubach left town. When I see Bledsoe, I see Roger. When I see Terry Glenn, I see Tony Hill..when I see Jason Witten, I see Doug Cosbie..when I see Keyshawn, I see Drew Pearson. When I see JuJo, I see Tony Dorsett. And when I see these guys playing together..I see our old 70's offensive teams of 72-78 where we had weapons at most every position and a team attitude on offense lead by a QB with a "never-say-die attitiude" to lead them. I'm going to hope in the coming weeks we can see a little more of the Aikman offense where Bledsoe doesn't have to continually manufacture wins and leave the entire offense on his shoulders, because that won't get us to the playoffs if he has to do that. But for now, I'm quietly smiling to myself and remembering another QB who used to be called Captain Comeback and how we all used to cross our collective fingers from weekend to weekend while he found ways each week to get it done and cause Cardiac arrests all over the Metroplex. Way to go..Drew. Thanks for stopping in Dallas. You may have found your ticket to the HOF here if this keeps up and a SB or 2 if everybody stays healthy. We needed you. :bow: parcellswaterboy ps..BP says..uuuh..me too.
