    Isn't there a thread here that says that Aikman hates Dak and loves riding him from the booth?

    I swear it has to be true. I heard it on the zone.

    It’s funny to have this thread and the Troy Aikman’s Criticism of Dak thread on the front page at the same time.

    Yeah, I heard this on my drive in. Troy wanted to rebuild everything in Dallas earlier in the year as well?

    Yep. Sure was. And as I said there, all you have to do is listen to Troy during the week to know he loves the kid. Aikman just tells it like it is during the games. If Dak throws a bad pass, Troy doesn't sugarcoat it.

    Obviously, a lot will depend on what happens on Saturday, but it does feel like Dak is turning the corner on not only his play, but the perception of him seems to be improving. I guess that's what clutch play in January gets you.

    We're a conflicted fan base @Idgit.

    Dak is both clutch and trash.

    Jerry is both the Executive of the Year and the village idiot.

    Linehan is both ... well, universally disliked.

    I thought "you either have it or you don't". Wasn't that what he said earlier in the season? I figured he was talking about Dak not having "IT".

    I thought there was a shot if you had "it". lol

    Romo profited from the country club atmosphere that was fully cultivated in Dallas by the time he arrived. Had we been a more serious franchise then, I'm fairly certain he is forced to live out his Cinderella fantasy elsewhere. Romo provided the perfect illusion of making us appear competitive without actually having to be that.

    is this the same troy who said just a week ago you either have accuracy or you don't. and dak didn't have it. seems to be crayfishing a bit to me. that's why I just prefer to judge dak on his game. and I've been pretty impressed of late.

    Dak in his 3rd year on pace to tie romos 10+ year record of playoff wins.


    Now I can see why the whole team from coaches to players couldn’t wait to have Dak takeover. He’s got elite potential

    I see it the exact opposite. Had Parcells stuck around longer, I think the Romo narrative would have been so, so different. To me Romo was the victim, not the cause, of that marshmallowy soft country club atmosphere that followed Parcells.

    Yup. What I like about Dak is how he carries himself despite being s young kid. Turning down Kanye West tickets for film sessions etc. while tony was too busy trying to be a celebrity.

    I see why the organization is upbeat about him in a way they never were with romo

    Everybody gets butt hurt when Troy gives his critiques, lucky for them they didn’t have to get in the huddle with him either...:muttley:
