    Not trying to pick a fight, just curious how he is more talented then Aikman?

    Aikman was stronger...had a bigger arm, tighter spiral.

    Romo is more athletic, does things on the field Aikman couldn't ever do, the production numbers aren't even on the same stratosphere while Romo plays behind a vastly inferior oline, etc. And tighter spiral? I'm not sure if you're being serious with even mattering or being some kind of measurement. Either way, if you insert Aikman in on that Broncos game, IMO, we would have been obliterated.

    Not to take away anything from Aikman but Great QBs have to play on good/great teams. But you are right about Aikman's team, see Kosar, Buerlein, Peete, Garrett the only ones that sis not do well were Laufenberg and Walsh.

    You left off a MUCH better leader.

    You know he's a better leader, how? Didn't know you were part of the team.

    Aikman was actually faster than Romo. Romo is better at eluding rushers with his side to side movements. Romo was virtually untouched from the second quarter til the last drive. He could've thrown a picnic in the third and most of the fourth quarters.

    I think all 5 of those QB's a good leaders. At least according to their teammates they were.

    Well I don't think Romo's athletic prowess has ever been because of his run speed. lol

    I don't know why this scenario keeps being brought up b/c this team/oline wouldn't be built like it currently is if Aikman was our QB. Jerry has said that Romo's athleticism in the pocket allows the team to focus less resources on the oline. When you have a strong/accurate arm that consistently throws tight spirals (yes that matters to receivers), who needs athletcism.

    Didn't see them all play except for White, Aikman and Romo. Romo does some things that set him apart from White and Aikamn but Aikman had a better arm and was way more consistent. Accuracy is dependant on the day with Romo. Accuracy was Aikman's calling card.

    Fair enough but it doesn't change the fact that Romo has a higher completion % while having to run for his life much of his career.

    LOL.....how many people have actually seen all 5 Cowboys to even rank lol? Just curious. I have a feeling some of these guys are in their 20's and weren't even born when Meredith, Staubach and White were playing.

    I don't want to quote them because I may have misheard them but i've heard Aikman and Roger even say similar things like Romo is more talented and athletic than they were.

    Romo will finish his career as the all-time Cowboys leader in Yards, TDs (already is), Rating, 4th Quarter comebacks(already is), Completion %, Int % and quite possibly game winning drives. IF he doesn't win a SB, he will not be considered the best QB to play for the cowboys even with all these stats.

    Having personally watched 4 of the 5, I have to say that Aikman had the most pure talent of any on the list. Not athleticism, just talent. He just didn't play in today's all passing NFL, and didn't need to with Emmitt. If he had, I'm sure he would have ranked up there with the best as far as numbers. As far as I'm concerned, Tony and Roger were actually the most fun to watch. I even believe Tony has more talent than Roger, but until he wins the big one, I have to go:

    Troy
    Roger
    Tony
    Meredith
    White (and I did like white)
