    Romo would be in Cabo right now. And don't forget Witten, either. He was right there with him. He was not a real leader, either. He was a coaches' pet and that's it.

    This team rallies around Dak and believes in him. Dak is a leader and commands respect. Romo was the polar opposite of that. Hardly a leader at all. People think it's just "bad luck" and circumstances of why that core never won anything. But it wasn't.

    If I'm Dak....I'm pickin' Troy's brain every chance I get.
    Roger's too....and I'd keep them in a notebook for easy reference.
    They've lived it and succeeded.
    It's another tool for the tool bag only he has access too...take advantage of it...I would.

    :facepalm:

    Dak is a completely different type of Quarterback to Aikman. That goes without even saying how good each one is.

    As far as temperament - they aren't close.
    Aikman got in your face for missing an assignment, even if it was his fault.
    Dak winks, tells them to get their *** back to the huddle and they'll get it the next play.
    Which his teammates love...

    As far as skill-set... you're going to have to show me something on that one.

    He was talking about accuracy under pressure. I heard the interview live. He said Dak has shown issues with his accuracy, which is the straight up truth during the first 8 weeks. Aikman has never beaten around the bush with his analysis.

    You must be in the locker room to be such an expert on this stuff!

    Troy seems to go back and forth on Dak, depending on how well Dak plays or whether or not the Cowboys win or lose that week. :laugh:

    He’s probably right, and if we get the Dak we’ve seen the last couple of games I’m good with that. Because he showed real growth IMO.

    I would say that Romo is up there, even though the revisionist history, agenda having, Dak Haters would have some believe that Romo was never trashed in his earlier career, like Dak is being trashed now. Because of the legendary status some currently build up Romo to be, the Anti-Dak crowd tends to forget or overlook the fact that the exact same things currently said to bash Dak, were the same said against Romo in his first 3 or 4 seasons.

    And if Jerry listened to the Anti Romo could, then Romo wouldn't have even been a Cowboys QB long enough to build up the legend he is in some Cowboys fans minds.

    Troy also thought a similar thing about David LaFleur.

    He made those comments after the Titans game though, when Cooper was on the roster.

    Still before we knew how much the offense would improve.

    I think we were all calling for an organizational overhaul two months ago. After that Titans game, who wasn't thinking we had some serious issues?

    More evidence that #9 was just a stop gap until we got a real QB.
