Troy Aikman weighs in on replacement officials, “elite” quarterbacks
Aikman weighed in on the replacement officials. “This has been an embarrassment to the NFL,” Aikman said. “Does that keep people from watching? No, it doesn’t.”
Aikman agreed with Dan that guys are trying to get away with stuff. “If those penalties aren’t being called during the course of the game,” Aikman said, “then the players do become more emboldened. It becomes a safety issue.”
Aikman said that his biggest surprise of the season is New Orleans going 0-3.
Aikman weighed in on the whole “elite” quarterback issue. Aikman said after someone asked Eli Manning that question and he went on to have a great year. “Maybe Matthew Stafford, Joe Flacco want to be asked that question. Maybe good things come from that.”
