Romo will never best Aikman until he brings us three rings

    Right... & Romo has benefitted from contributing to a great collection of early deficits which have allowed him to amass a plethora of stats digging himself out of the hole he helped create. That's not just this year.

    You realize Aikman led those Super Bowl winning Cowboys teams right? Or was that a crash test dummy that hit on those lasers to Irvin and other while handing off to Emmett as well ?

    Aikman turned the ball over just as much while throwing less. Keep reaching though.

    Reaching is not necessary here. Keep dangling though.

    Read. React. Read. React. It is one of the basic strategies in football. No difference here... It would be a waste to try and help you understand. Just re-read the first post and try to imagine 12 Romo defenders didn't attack.

    So is there even a point to this thread or did you think we just needed to know you don't think Romo is as good as Aikman?

    If Romo played with those teams from the 90s, I think there is a very good chance the Cowboys would have won all three games anyway. I mean, those teams were awesome. But that was so long ago.

    I see all these myopic reasons why Aikman succeeded, from players around him, to salary cap...ect.

    Yet the one thing I do not see are the only facts that appears to me to be actually pertinent.

    He was the most accurate passer in the league then, and will always be in the top three or four.

    He was a fiery leader that demanded the team play up to their level.

    And he was such a team player he sacrificed personal stats for the team to win.

    I'm a big time Romo fan and would love to see a few championships.

    But this measuring contest and excuses to elevate Romo ignores some very important facts, and slanders Aikman to elevate a current pet cat.

    Interesting angle and surely possible but I am not so sure he would have done what Aikman did. That was a precision timing offfense. Do you believe Romo has the same accuracy as Aikman?

    Yes.... Unfortunately, it was a very long time ago.

    Aikman was awesome but that doesn't mean that Romo can't be awesome too.

    I believe Aikman is in the top five of all time, accuracy wise. But Romo is no slouch in that regard. I believe if he is given a good pocket to throw from, he can be absolutely lethal. Look what he does when he's scrambling for his life, the guy went 10-10 in the second half of last week's game and a good number of those were not easy throws by any stretch of the imagination. Aikman was the perfect QB for that system but Romo could have done some serious damage with those players as well.

    It's absolutely pointless to compare Aikman and Romo. They're both completely different players and played in far different eras.

    Not saying Romo isn't awesome. But deliver the package and then tell me, Tony.

    The skill assassination of Aikman to bolster Romo's career this far is a little out of bounds for me.

    Two players from completely different eras that played the same position for the team we all know and love. The only real difference at this time is that 3-0 count. I disagree. It is perfectly okay to compare since Romo just moved ahead of Aikman in one of those less important statistical categories.

    Is it pointless to compare Kobe and Magic, Kobe and MJ, Kobe and West?
