04:14 PM ET 02.13 | Troy Aikman has been supporting Tony Romo for his entire career. He's said Romo is great and better than he himself was, and as speculation swirls about the Cowboys looking to extend Tony Romo's contract, he is there defending him again. "There's been a little bit of a teasing going on because this team has been talented, they were 13-3 the one year," Aikman said. "In my opinion, they've been good enough talent-wise to have done a little bit more than they've been able to do. I think that part of it is the frustration for a lot of the fans. "I think the fans get excited each year because they know that this team is capable of doing something. They know that [Tony] Romo is, I believe most fans recognize, 'Hey, this guy's really gifted.' And they've just come up short for a variety of reasons." But Dallas fans are separated into two factions: Pro-Romo vs Anti-Romo. Some called apologists say his deficiencies are a result of the offensive line. Tony Romo even said he wishes he could play flat-footed like Tom Brady, but always has to be on the move to avoid constant pressure. They'd also point out that they don't have any other options. Troy, though, says Romo is a special player.

All I can say is Troy used to concuss himself hitting his own pillow too hard near the end of his career.

I suspect lingering difficulties...

Nobody in the league gets the "yips" like Romo.

And nobody tosses the "break your back" INT better than he,

Otis will have to be satisfied with funny lookin', fat, no waist Upton instead.

Troy Aikman is an idiot.

Troy Aikman, can speak his mind, Jerry still won't do anything, maybe they will have a decent draft, and still have to get under the cap!

Aikman really said that Tony "Big Game" Romo is better than he was? What was dude smoking?

Not going to matter how much they pay him if they don't put a decent line in front of him.

I could see Romo being a top ten QB if, big freakin' IF, the O-line would give him time to throw. When he throws those late ugly Oskies it because he's running for his life. Romo's got more pure talent than several top tier QBs.

Bro, that's very disrespectful, classless, and untrue.

February 14, 2013  07:45 AM ET

Honestly... Romo is like a slightly mobile Sanchez bro.

Get him a running back who can catch a pass out of the backfield, to slow down the Rush, Bradshaw, Bush, etc!!! This should reduce the sacks and interceptions! Of course the boys are over the cap, but that's another issue!
