People act as though the open discussion of Romo is taboo. That tickles me.
I agree. Nothing wrong with discussing any player's legacy.
lol Strong everything.
Notice the "in my opinion" part? This is probably why you are always getting clowned on this forum.
Boy you're in attack mode today aren't you noob. Trust me, there is life outside of Cowboy football.
Please stop E-Stalking me.
It isn't fun when a poster comes out of nowhere and attacks you is it? If you can't finish it, don't start it.
Yeah, sadly I noticed it. I feel sorry for you for having that opinion too.
Get your underware out of a bunch. I have no clue who you are but I would really like it if you would discontinue following me around talking tough.
I appreciate you having feelings for me, but there is no need to be upset.
Skip Bayless was on the Cowboys coaching staff!?
Thank you! Aikman was a machine come playoff time. Dude was clutch.
When people bring up SB rings, then teams are being compared. Both great QB's, but Aikman had a great team around him for 4-5 years, and Romo has not had that. And that's not an excuse to elevate Romo (whose accomplishments need no embellishment anyway), it's just a simple fact.
It doesn't slander Aikman either, who could have thrown for a lot more yards on a .500 team with no running threat, but whose passer ratings every year (more TD, more INT) wouldn't have been any higher than they were.
When I see comparisons and "if Romo had Aikman's team," comments, I scratch my head.
Romo is a fabulous player. But there is no way to assume that if he were behind Aikman's line he would have been as good.
Because he is not as accurate.
What makes you think he would have to be as accurate as Aikman to be as good, or to have as much success? Romo--and many others--have had a lot of success in the NFL without being as accurate as Troy Aikman.
Because of the offense Jimmy ran. Plain and simple.
Tony plays sandlot. Waits for people to clear and throws in an area. He is not that accurate and has days when he is woefully inaccurate.
Aikman was a surgeon. That slant was a thing of beauty because Troy could hit the right spot 95 out of 100 times.
You'd said that Romo would not have been as good behind Aikman's line. If you're changing that to "Romo would not have been as good as Aikman in an offense designed for Aikman," then of course I agree.
This is what i said:
I am pretty sure what I said was exactly what I meant.
Romo has qualities Troy will never have. That Fran Tarkington style of slipping tackles and moving until someone comes open. He is a magician with that ability.
But Troy had something Romo does not have. A deadly accurate pin-point passing arm. An arm that can hit the target time and again without throwing behind the receiver, too high, too long.
Romo is a vicinity passer. Aikman was a target passer.
This is about style and ability.
Aikman is the most under-rated QB ever... Nobody placed the ball better than AIkman, plus he played in a league where DBs could actually touch WRs and that too, in a tming-based system. He would light up this league with his absolute cut-throat lethal persona.
Anyway, that's what I responding to.
Because that us a general statement that some fans toss out as if that is all Romo needs. It is the same argument that Barry Sander's fans tossed out.
And there is more to this than just standing upright.
