    Irvin and Aikman both demand perfection. I seen the glory years I KNOW what a super bowl bound team looks like. I know what a legit qb looks like too. People forget Aikman was a dog, and Irvin and Emmit was part of his pack.

    I don't see the expectations if perfection from any if the players on the current roster. Aikman demanded that every player perform at his best.

    The questions of which one was overrated, and which one of them was not underrated, both have the same answer: none of them.

    He was money -- especially in the playoffs. In end, nothing matters more than that.

    That game against Denver was against Tommy Maddox and Shawn Moore. Elway was hurt. But yes it was a comeback. There was a comeback vs Cincy in 94, the Vikings and Giants in 95, Falcons and Ninersin '96, Eagles and Skins in '97. But yeah we mostly dominated in those days.

    The era and offense that Aikman was in didn't yield high numbers.

    He was a balls to the wall leader, and his accuracy is still the best I've ever seen.

    If you think Aikman was overrated, you'll never understand the game of Football.

    I'll take the word of Jimmy Johnson over the likes of internet fans who think stats have any significant meaning.

    Johnson stated Troy sacrificed his personal stats because of team concept. Jimmy suggested Aikman could have had Marino type numbers, but winning Super Bowls was more important. Just like Johnston sacrificed himself to open lanes for Emmitt.

    Aikman had 16 career 4th quarter comebacks and 21 game winning drives.

    6 times in 1990 when the team was beginning to turn the corner. 3 times in the 1995 Super Bowl winning year.

    Emmitts my all time favorite Cowboy.

    But I love me some Troy also.

    Maybe I'm the exception?

    I'm talking The upper echelon of those HOFers.

    Whenever these lists are made look where these three are placed.

    None! These three where meant to play together, they each played off of each other. Watching the NFL network all week is killing me. Remembering just how good this team used to be, how dominate this team was! And now, for the last 16 years (except maybe the stint with the TUNA). Always good to look back though.

    They were all over rated. Give all the credit to The Great Wall.

    They should have been referred to as the quintuplets with Jay Novacek being mentioned with them.

    That's how it should be. Troy was my favorite but I loved Emmitt and Irvin too. What is wrong with people pitting one against the others?!

    The absolute truth of the matter may be that when they lost Novacek everything changed.
