Troy Aikman On Cowboys Loss to 49ers: ‘The Game is Not That Difficult’

Troy Aikman knows a thing or two about winning with a star wide receiver, capturing three Lombardi Trophies during an 11-year run alongside Michael Irvin in Dallas. And the legendary former Cowboys quarterback isn’t happy with the way America’s Team used — or, rather, misused — No. 1 target CeeDee Lamb in the club’s wild card loss to the 49ersJoining 96.7 The Ticket on Wednesday, Aikman suggested the Cowboys hurt themselves by overthinking Lamb’s role in the postseason.

“There was a lot of single coverage on CeeDee Lamb,” Aikman said. “I hate going back to (when I was playing) because nobody cares, but what I see around the league — it’s not just Dallas, I’ve seen it with a lot of teams — a lot of these offenses want to scheme things. The coordinators, it’s all about scheme, rather than, ‘This corner is playing soft. He’s scared to death.’ Just run the route tree. Run a comeback. Run a dig route. Run a curl. Run anything.”
