And as much as I hate Cowboys, old, current and future trying to compare Aikman to Smith is laughable. If you want to talk about lower rung Qbs winning Super Bowls your subjects should be Brad Johnson, Trent Dilfer and Mark Rypien, not Troy Aikman.
Are you serious? Smith isn't comparable with them!
Trent Dilfer had a 'career year' with a QB rating of 76 in 2000. career average? 70
Brad Johnson had a 'career year' with a QB rating of 92.3 in 2002. career average? 82.5
Mark Rypien had a 'career year' in 1991, a QB rating of 97.9. Career average of 78.9.
** basically, they had blips on their resumes. Smith has been a completely different quarterbacks since shoulder surgery.
