AUSTIN the million year Troy Aikman plays the game because he likes to win His thirst for competition drives him like a former coach he used to have the one with the perfect hairdo chubby cheeks and winordie attitude But after this season the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys could walk away from the Sundays he loves Aikman doesnt guarantee hell be around forever Or next year I really dont Aikman said There are times when I say I want to do this until they drag me off the field There are times when I could take it or leave it I have physical concerns and I dont want to get to the point where I just play for a pay check Injuries might drive him from the game but he is basically too Oklahoma tough to let that happen So what could trigger his departure from the NFL He could never stand to play

point where I felt this orga nization wasnt doing what it should to remain competitive it could drive me to retire prema Aikman said I enjoy what Im doing but there are other things in the world I love the camaraderie of my teammates but I have friends outside of football Winning is what it all comes down Aikman said he would have seriously con sidered retirement if the Cowboys had won the Super Bowl last year We didnt do it so I didnt have to make that Aikman said Now I dont know what I would do if we win a third Aikman has won two Super Bowl rings with the perfectionist Johnson as his
