Troy Aikman says "Cowboys are the best" in the NFC East


DALLAS (105.3 the Fan) - Dallas Cowboys Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman joined Shan Shariff and Mike Fisher on 105.3 the Fan on Wednesday morning to give his thoughts on the Cowboys stunning turnaround over the last few weeks.

The three-time Super Bowl champion was not shy in his praise of his former team, speaking extensively on his admiration for the players, labeling the team as "the best team" in the NFC East.

"I will say this. I have said it throughout the year. I do feel that the Cowboys are the best team in the division," Aikman told 105.3 the Fan. "And some would say, 'Ok well who cares? What does that necessarily mean?'. Well what I think it means is that they could go into the post season, and they are capable. We know what they are on the offensive side of the ball, and the defense is playing better. They're at least getting the takeaways and doing some of the things that they've had a hard time doing the last couple of years. And this team is capable, when they're playing well, I think they're capable of giving anybody a run."
