(CBSDFW.COM) – Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback and current Fox NFL broadcaster Troy Aikman blew up Twitter late Monday night.

It started with a tweet from The Athletic Kansas City which said of the Chiefs star quarterback, “In case you missed it, Patrick Mahomes has thrown 36% of Troy Aikman’s career touchdowns in about 8% of the games.”

Aikman retweeted that with the comment, In case you missed it: Talk to me when when he has 33% of my Super Bowl Titles”

Aikman got a mix of praise for his response as well as people pointing out it’s a fact Mahomes is off to a better start at this stage of his NFL career.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Aikman’s tweet had nearly 168,000 likes and more than 25,000 retweets.
