Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman made some headlines when he stopped at a Brownsville, Texas, Wing Stop for a publicity event on Tuesday.

The NFL Hall of Famer gave Cowboys fans something to mull over after he sat down for a brief Q&A with a local newspaper. When asked to compare himself to current Dallas starter Tony Romo, Aikman paid him a fairly generous complement.

“I think Tony already is a better quarterback than I was,” Aikman told the Brownsville Herald. “I know how quarterbacks are judged but as far as his play-making ability and the things that he is capable of doing, he is a far more athletic quarterback, capable of making more plays than I ever was able to.”

For his career, Aikman amassed 165 touchdowns to 141 interceptions, completed 61.5% of his passes and threw for more than 32,000 yards in 165 games. Compare that to Romo, who, in less than half as many starts, has already racked up 149 touchdowns to just 72 interceptions and completed 64.5% of his passes.
