In an interview with the Brownsville Herald, former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikmen said that Tony Romo is already a better quarterback then he 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.”
I really don’t believe opposing defenses fear Romo the way they did when they had to face Aikme back in the 90′s. Maybe that’s because Aikmen had Michael Irvin and Emmitt Smith. But, the last time I checked, Romo had some pretty good talent around him as well.
I believe Romo has the talent to be a winner, but I don’t think he has the killer instinct that’s needed to win the crcuial NFL games in order to bring a championship back to Dallas.
