He used his team mates to help do the heavy lifting and that was in reference to me saying this is the lesson Prescott will need to learn if he is to develope further. Read the things in their context.
    No, Aikman couldn't run like Cunningham. Montana, Brady, and Marino couldn't run like Mike Vick, either. I don't see where that's relevant at all to being a top QB.

    Your Marino comment is a lot more relevant, but I'm surprised you don't think he could have done similar things if he'd played in the same offense. The Emmitt-based offense wasn't Troy's choice, you know? To say he couldn't have "survived" a Marino offense is crazy to me. Not only would he have survived, he'd have put up crazy numbers.

    Did anyone say Aikman wasn’t a top Quarterback? All the comments were about different styles and comparisons. You are getting off track with your comments. It’s not a rating of anyone.

    Carr? I personally don’t think it’s going to be tough to have a better career than a first round draft bust who avg’ed 1300 yards passing with 59% completion numbers, no matter how many LED targets he knocked down in the studio.

    I'll take the passing game competition with a grain of salt, I usually do. Carr did have some physical talent, he could never put it all together and is one of the bigger first round busts of the last twenty years, especially since he was the #1 overall pick.

    Aikman did benefit from having Emmitt, plus he had great safety valves in Irvin and Novacek and a top notch OL. I remember reading about the draft in the paper and at the time, I didn't even know who Aikman was because I didn't follow college football much in those days.

    It's a god damn passing game designed for you and me to be able to play. It's like claiming someone is a bad dancer because they lost to someone at Dance Dance revolution.
