    He's comparing a pocket passing timing qb to a mobile ad libber. Both can win w right talent. To say one is better is just stupid WO recognizing that.

    Some of that is due to the fact that the team isn't playing very well and fans are frustrated but most of it is because opinions differ so greatly here which leads to arguments that can evolve into trash talking.

    I normally don't start this crap with the Internet tough guys and most definitely will not let the traps run without a little rebuttal. Iceberg has zero to contribute here. Yet he enjoys utilizing his spare time wasting life. It must be difficult to have nothing else meaningful to do with your time on a beautiful Saturday night.

    You are the one w a blog headline demanding 3 rings. I asked several questions to compare the 2 on their own terms. You can't.

    Even if Romo can win 2 or 3 SBs before he retires, who the "best ever" Cowboys QB will always be arbitrary. It is strictly opinion based and people will always differ. Troy has more rings than Roger, but I will say for the rest of my life, Staubach was the best Dallas QB. But, by no means, am I putting down Troy or the others.

    Look at this list of Cowboys QBs since 1960 (52 years) Dallas has had one franchise QB each decade:

    60s - Don Meredith
    70s - Roger Staubach
    80s - Danny White
    90s - Troy Aikman
    00s - Tony Romo

    To me, that is a pretty darn good group no matter which one is supposedly the "best ever." I know that only two have Championships, but each one has given Dallas at least a fighting chance at a title. I am thankful that my team has had that kind of quality at the QB position.

    Blue wanted intelligent responses. He really was just looking for agreement.

    You allow Aikman to sling it around all over the country, he shatters records. And his receivers were possession receivers, with Harper being a deep threat. Aikman never had a guy that could take a 2 yard pass to the house consistently, like TO/Dez/Austin.

    Aikman was also in the era where he could get killed, and no fines were handed down, so he had to learn to get the ball out quick, to keep from being murdered. Not to mention his receivers could get assaulted in the air while trying to catch passes, none of Tony's receivers ever had to worry about that threat.
    Aikman played the best of the best and always came out on top. He didn't make excuses, even while philly sacked him 11 times, he just learned to get better. He wasn't a choker, he came to play against some of the best teams this NFL has ever had, in San Fran, Buffalo.
    I don't even want to hear Romo's name mentioned next to Aikman. Only ****** think Romo was a better QB.

    Thank you!!

    OP wanted intelligent discussion and yet many of us have broken down the different eras...how defense was played, how this is a video game league of passing now because of the DB rules, etc.. And it all gets ignored. What is Romos weakness? Turnovers in big games..many on forced throws into tight spaces. What was Aikmans strength? Being one of the most accurate passers in NFL history in nut cutting time and doing it against tougher defenses where DBs mauled WRs. This argument isn't even close. Tony's athletic ability doesn't negate smarts, accuracy and protecting the ball. Troy is miles ahead. That is real talk and real football not playing plug and play and making assumptions based on today's wide open offenses. I've put this same thing in detail in 3 posts and all that ends up happening us we get 3 more pages of "tony just needs one SB to be better than Troy." How does that work in a significantly more watered down league, with weaker competition and parity where teams can be playoff teams at .500...just not us?

    This is the best answer in this thread by far. Problem is many of this boards fans don't go back nearly that far and are just hearing us old guys talk about our QB history.
