    Troy Aikman vs Tony Romo Stat Comparison

    The have always been known to have some great quarterbacks in their franchise. Two examples are Troy Aikman and Tony Romo. These two quarterbacks are some of the most well-known players in NFL , but which one has better stats?

    Let's first take a look at the one and only, Troy Aikman. Troy played 12 years in the NFL and all of them were with the Cowboys. He stared in 165 games with a record of 94-71. With three wins, Troy was an icon for the Cowboys in the 90s.

    To observe some more detailed stats, we can see that Troy's completion percentage was 61.5%. He threw for 165 touchdowns and 141 interceptions. He had a total of 32,942 yards in his career. The six-time Pro Bowler also had a playoff record of 11-4. He holds a total of 15 comebacks and 20 game-winning drives.

    Wow, Troy seems to be the man. At this point, can Tony Romo even rival him in statistics?

    Tony played 13 seasons in the league, however, while still being on the team he did not play a game in the 2016 NFL season. His record is 78-49 while starting 156 games. Tony sadly does not have any Super Bowl wins and has a playoff record of 2-4.

    His other stats consist of a passers rate of 65.3%. He had 248 touchdowns and only 117 interceptions. Romo had a total of 34,183 yards and 4 appearances. Tony had 24 comebacks and 29 game-winning drives in his career.

    Those are a whole lot of numbers for two different quarterbacks. Now we can see a big difference between the two, Troy seems to have better luck in the while Tony did not. This is always the main factor when comparing two players side by side with each other. So Troy takes the cake on that matter.

    Upon further inspection, it seems that Tony Romo has better stats in some areas than Troy Aikman did. This can be proved in completion rate, touchdowns, and total yards. Tony even has a better record than Troy in the regular season. So which player is better?

    Even with better stats, Tony can't keep up with every NFL season's main objective: to win the Super Bowl. Troy succeeded in this matter while Romo didn't come close in any of his seasons. Troy Aikman is the superior quarterback in this area and most praise him for this matter.

    On the other hand, we can not leave out Tony Romo. This man still holds records and still has the ninth-highest passer rating in NFL history, which is just one spot behind . Tony has the better stats for sure yet lacks in terms of playoff wins.

    It's really difficult to both of these amazing quarterbacks. Each one has had amazing seasons and both had big impacts to the Cowboys team. They are both super talented and each one has their own special skill.

    No comparison. One won three rings and the other one won zilch. End of story!

    Bartman

    Jorge is the man! No Comparison what so ever. 3 of the greatest playoff chokes in history should also be added to the Romo list!

    But what if Romo had that exact same team? The main thing he didn’t seem to have that Aikman did have was that x-factor.

    David

    The fact is Aikman played with superior teams – he wasn’t close to being the superior qb. Romo never had close to the quality of offensive line, running back, receivers, or defense that Aikman played with, and he still put up comparable/better numbers. Fact: Dallas beats Buffalo in the ’93 Superbowl (52-17); however loses first two games including loss Washington (16-35) and to Buffalo (10-13) in the 93′ regular season; yet beats Buffalo ’94 Superbowl (30-13). The difference no Emmitt Smith first two games of the ’93 regular season. Put Tony on the same teams that Aikman had, and in my opinion they win more Superbowls.

    David, simply put … Romo doesn’t put up the same stats he did if he played on Aikman’s teams with that same staff. Aikman was not asked to put up numbers, while Romo’s teams were completely dependent on him. Aikman brought more to the team and field than Romo from an intangibles perspective and was at least his equal from a skills perspective. It’s a fun debate.

    John

    Romo was a great QB just like Troy but let’s also compare the teams around both players, Troy would have the same number of rings as Romo if he had the teams and coaches that Romo had to play with. When Cowboys management even admits they wasted Romo’s talent that’s all we really need to know

    Kendall

    Bless your heart.

    Richard

    Completely different eras… different rules.

    Romo would be dead if he had taken the shots Aikman took REGULARLY.

    Tracy Willoughby

    Aikman all the way!

    Charles Gaines

    I couldn’t have said that better

    Kendall

    Tebow is one playoff victory away from matching the overrated qb and overrated announcer.

    They were both better than the one they have now and the only one that’may have them both beat is Tom Brady and he is over rated by a long shot he just has a line that keeps him safe and makes it looks as if he is better than anyone I think Romo took troy that’s just me
