Aikman: Romo Is A Better QB Than I Was

Troy Aikman won three Super Bowls with the Cowboys, but he believes Tony Romo is already a better QB than he ever was




    A lot of folks around Dallas criticize Tony Romo because of his playoff record, but Troy Aikman, who won three Super Bowls with the Cowboys in the early- to mid-nineties, doesn’t believe this is Romo’s fault.

    In fact, Aikman said this week that Romo is a better quarterback than he was.

    "I think Tony already is a better quarterback than I was," Aikman told the Brownsville Herald, via the Dallas Morning News. "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."

    Aikman then took his praise of Romo to the next level, saying he believes that he believes the Cowboys will win a Super Bowl with Romo at the helm.

    "He has a good team around him," Aikman said. "Hopefully -- and I believe this will happen -- I believe that he will win a Super Bowl before he is done playing."
