Troy Aikman discusses play-calling changes affect on Tony Romo

The Dallas Cowboys are on their third play-caller in three years. Former Cowboys quarterback and Hall of Famer Troy Aikman weighed in on how he thinks that will affect current quarterback Tony Romo.

“It depends on if the play-caller is any good,” Aikman said, the Dallas Morning News. “We were last in the league my second year and we brought in Norv Turner and it was a great change. We went from last to ninth in the league. I think change for the sake of change is not necessarily good, but if change improves that position then it is a good thing. Tony [Romo] is a smart guy, the players are smart and they’ll learn a new offense. I’m sure the terminology will stay the same. I think sometimes we make a bigger deal about calling plays than we probably should.

“But the fact that there’s been change on both sides of the ball again, just really kind of reiterates the lack of direction or commitment that this team has had with those that have been in those positions.”
