Troy Aikman gave current Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo a pat on the back.
"I think Tony already is a better quarterback than I was," Aikman told the Brownsville Herald. "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."
Romo is actually on pace to shatter the Hall of Famer's franchise record of 32,942 yards and 165 touchdowns. The current Cowboys quarterback has thrown for 20,834 yards and 149 scores.
Of course, Aikman has three Super Bowl rings on his fingers while Romo is still searching for some jewelry.
