    Unfortunately I never got the privilege of seeing Troy Aikman play during his prime and I really wish I did, but I have to say I really enjoy his commentary. Alot of people think he tries too hard to not be a Cowboys homer, but I don't agree with that idea at all. I just think Troy is someone who is really unbiased and fair so to speak. As a football fan you don't want to have commentators who are biased towards their former team and Aikman isn't.

    He's just a guy who is extremely knowledgable about the game of football. I was re-watching the Cowboys/Eagles game and Joe made a joke about how Troy was being all technical when he was talking about the pass protection for the two quarterbacks, but I really like that he actually knows what he's talking about. It's always great to hear the perspective from a guy who actually played the game of football during arguably the toughest era in NFL history. Troy is definitely my favorite commentator.

    Duck. Everyone knows Troy is a Cowboys Hater and a secret Eagles fan. Didn't you hear him gushing over Nick Foles? :laugh2:

    Troy's fine. I find myself wishing at times that he'd show a little more love to his former team, but I get that he's overcompensating. He's very knowledgeable, but I have to say, his sidekick (Buck) is annoying as can be!!

    Aikman was the first on his block to buy a Nick Foles jersey.

    Troy can say whatever he wants. He's earned it.

    He was gushing over Kevin Kolb a few years ago when he had a couple of good games for Philly which prompted a FAN to claim Troy had abandoned the Cowboys.

    I'm not a big Troy fan--in fact, I don't really like any of the present announcers/analysts--bring me the old days when they told you what you needed to know and then shut up.

    Troy was my hero growing up in the '90s and every time I see him or hear him talk, I'm reminded of the glory days. Same reason I enjoy seeing all the other ex-Cowboys on TV as well, including Deion. And I agree with the OP that Troy's excellent at his job and is truly unbiased.

    Excellent observation. I love hearing what Troy has to say too. He brings the real talk.

    Toughest era? Go back and watch footage from the 40's and 50's. Those were some tough SOB's.

    LOL @ the 90's being the toughest era. That's hilarious.

    I can't stand Troy and Buck calling Cowboys games. I think he just can't get over the fact that he was done and rightfully discarded at the end of his career.

    I love them both. They are as knowledgeable as you can get to analyze the game. I can also tolerate Buck better than some I guess. I'm usually paying more attention to the game than I am the commentators.

    I like Troy but not Joe Buck. Joe Buck is an ***.

    Loved Troy as a player. I just feel that he tries too hard not to be unbiased towards the Cowboys and seems to bash them more so than not. I couldn't stand his constant fawning over Nick Foles. When Romo was started playing I don't think he said much about Romo and instead found little things to nitpick about the Cowboys.
