Troy Aikman was at a loss for words watching the Cowboys lose vs. Ravens
Troy Aikman has no answers.
As half of a broadcasting top-team pairing, Aikman cannot afford to lose his words on the air, but that’s pretty much what happened in the closing minutes of Tuesday night’s Cowboys blowout loss to the Ravens.
The Hall of Famer has never been afraid to dish some truth on his former team, and as Tuesday night’s matchup came to a close, Aikman admitted the one thing he knows about the Cowboys: that he just does not know.

“I don’t know. I just don’t know where this organization … where they go,” Aikman said during the Fox Broadcast. “There are just so many things that have to be addressed this offseason.”
Aikman has a point: Dallas must address the defense, the quarterback position and, potentially, head coach if it continues to sputter down the stretch.
While some accuse Troy Aikman of being anti-Cowboy, who can really blame him? Dallas was expected to dominate in 2020 under new head coach Mike McCarthy, but instead the Cowboys sit at 3-9 and the only thing they’ve dominated this year is a watermelon.
It’s not the first time Aikman has been critical of the organization, as he usually offers some type of opinion or insight for the impetus to Cowboys change. Give credit to Aikman for one thing: He essentially predicted the Cowboys’ dysfunction just after the hiring of McCarthy earlier in the year. Aikman hasn’t been afraid to call out owner Jerry Jones either; the barbs on last night’s national broadcast surely won’t make ol’ Jerrah feel warm and fuzzy, that’s for sure.
Dallas travels to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals on Sunday in an Andy Dalton revenge game. They finish the season with games vs. San Francisco, Philadelphia and the New York Giants. They’ll still be searching for answers. But like Dallas, Aikman will probably still have none.
