About a month ago, Hall of Fame quarterback and Fox analyst Troy Aikman made some waves when he offered the opinion that current Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is better than he was. It was a much-discussed comment, of course, with seemingly everyone associated with the team (past and present) giving their take on the comparison.
But until very recently, we hadn’t heard from Romo himself on the matter.
On Tuesday, per Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas, Romo said he was humbled by Aikman’s comments but doesn’t think there’s really any comparison to be made between he and the three-time Super Bowl champ.
“I think first whenever Troy Aikman says anything in a positive way about you as a quarterback it makes you feel good,” he said. “For me it just means that Troy thinks that you’re doing something right and I think that’s exciting from a quarterback’s perspective, coming from a guy who’s one of the greatest players ever to play in the game.
“But I don’t think I belong in that discussion, so Troy I think was being nice. But definitely I’m not going to wash it away and say it doesn’t matter because it makes me feel good so I’m going to take that. But I do think that there’s no discussion. I think Troy Aikman is on his own mountain top by himself.”
