Who Would Help Cowboys More Right Now: Troy Aikman or Emmitt Smith?

Here’s my take:

“This is really a tough choice. You have to consider the amazing offensive line Emmitt Smith ran behind. I’m fairly certain this o-line isn’t capable of opening up as many holes for Emmitt as the line in the early nineties could. On the other hand, this current line does pass protect fairly well. I think they would give Troy Aikman enough time to pick apart defenses with his excellent accuracy. But I would love to see Emmitt run in a Dallas uniform again. And how could you not choose the league’s all-time leading rusher? Remember how the Cowboys looked when Smith held-out in those two games in 1993? There isn’t a wrong answer here, but because we got a glimpse of what those Super Bowl teams would have been like without him, I’m choosing Emmitt over Aikman here.“

    I would take Emmitt. And my reason is simple… Cowboys vs Giants. Dislocated shoulder ot win for the division. Without him, we don’t win that game.

  • Dale

    Neither one…without oline, both would be rendered largely irrelevant. Let’s take Larry Allen!

  • californy

    I think Larry Allen or Eric William before his injury would help out more than these 2 players. Aikman with 8 pro Bowl player in 1994 on the offensive side of the ball went 13 TD to 12 interception and still won Pro Bowl honors. Those look like Dilfer number to me.
