Troy Aikman: Tony Romo Is A Better Quarterback Than I Was

Friday March 23rd, 2012

Dallas Cowboys legendary quarterback Troy Aikman told the Brownsville Herald that he believes current Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is better than he ever was.

“I think Tony already is a better quarterback than I was. I know how quarterbacks are judged but as far as his play-making ability and the things that he is capable of doing, he is a far more athletic quarterback, capable of making more plays than I ever was able to. He has a good team around him and hopefully, and I believe this will happen, I believe that he will win a Super Bowl before he is done playing.”

Aikman was a six-time Pro Bowler during his time in Dallas, helping the Cowboys win three Super Bowls. He was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in 2006.
