Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman isn’t a big fan of modern-day offensive coordinators and he isn’t afraid to let folks know it.

Aikman seemingly slammed Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore this week without saying his name (along with other offensive coordinators in the NFL).

The lead Fox Sports NFL color analyst spoke to 96.7 The Ticket and gave his thoughts on the Cowboys’ passing attack in their playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

Aikman took issue with the fact that Dallas didn’t find a way to get wide receiver CeeDee Lamb the ball more often against what he felt was favorable single coverage.

Here are Aikman’s comments (via Jon Machota):

It’s hard to argue against Aikman — he’s a Hall of Fame quarterback and a three-time Super Bowl champion. He’s a winner.

But at the same time, offenses are more prolific today than they were during Aikman’s playing days.

The highest average point total across the NFL during Aikman’s career (1989-2000) was 21.5 points per game in 1995.

Offenses are averaging 23.0 points per game this season. A year ago, offenses averaged 24.8 points per game. That’s a fairly significant difference.

I’m a big believer in in-game adjustments — so I’m going to roll with Aikman on this one. But it’s hard to see this trend changing with offenses operating so efficiently these days.
