Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo probably plays with more pressure heap upon his shoulders day in and day out, then any other quarterback in football. Troy Aikman is a Hall of Famer, a legend in Dallas for all his productivity and three Super Bowl wins, and a big Tony Romo fan. Aikman was on 105.3 The Fan, and said that it’s frustrating to him, “that the average NFL fan doesn’t realize how good a quarterback Tony Romo really is.” “I’m a big fan of his and I’ve said it all along,” Aikman said, via the Dallas Morning News. “He’s a special player. Unfortunately, not enough people recognize that.” “I’m a big fan of his and I’ve said it all along,” Aikman said. “He’s a special player. Unfortunately, not enough people recognize that.” Aikman insist that the Cowboys are close, and that they can indeed win a Super Bowl. “I maintain that they’re close,” Aikman said. “And I know that people keep asking, ‘Hey, can Tony Romo lead this team to a Super Bowl?’ And I believe that he can. It’s hard to do. Whether or not he ultimately does it or doesn’t, to me, isn’t really the primary thing. The main thing is you build this team, if you believe that he is capable of doing that, which I believe he is and I believe the Cowboys feel that way as well. Then, you can put the other pieces around him and you have a chance to be really good.” I tend to agree with Aikman.  Quarterbacks get judged on a lot of things that they don’t control.  Does Romo have a tendency to make a crucial mistake, of course? Is Romo put in poor situations by his head coach and offensive coordinator who struggle to recognize the blitz or under utilize the running, you bet he is? Fact is we can’t totally judge Romo until he gets a complete team surrounding him.
