First time poster here, so go easy on me!
Wondering if anyone's noticed the similarities in stats between the superbowl winning 95 Aikman and the hopefully superbowl winning 2011 Alex Smith (for that matter, Smith's 2011 numbers look very similar to Troy's superbowl winning season stats). I don't recall anyone calling Aikman a "doubt" or a "liability" in those years; and I clearly remembered those years, based on how much I hated the Cowboys:
In 1995, Troy Aikman had 3,304 passing yards, 16 passing touchdowns, 7 pass interceptions, 32 rushing yards and 1 rushing touchdown. In the post season, he never passed for more than 255 yards, or more than 2 touchdowns in any of his 3 playoff games (including the superbowl).
Grant it, he did have a stronger running game (E. Smith - 1700 yds, 25 rushing TD's) and a playmaking WR (M. Irvin - 1600 yds, 10 TD's), which makes Smith's season even more impressive. This encourages me, that we can take it all the way, although I never thought that the hated 90's Cowboys would be comforting me, ever, in my life.
