Default Jon Kitna is just as good as Romo

Quote:
Cowboys receiver Roy Williams had his best season in 2006, when he caught 82 passes for 1,310 yards and made his only Pro Bowl.

His quarterback that year? Jon Kitna.

So Williams may be the only person in Dallas who thinks it's just fine that Kitna will take Romo's place as the Cowboys' quarterback after Romo suffered a clavicle fracture on Monday night.

Tony is our starter, but Jon is just as good,'' Williams said after the loss to the Giants. "We are going to work this week in practice so we can get the timing down with the receivers. But I have complete faith in him. I have played with him for three years and I know how good he is.''

Kitna threw some ugly passes when he first came on in place of Romo, although late in the game Kitna began to find open receivers downfield. Williams says the Cowboys' receivers can expect Kitna to find them regularly.

"He will put the ball where it needs to be,'' Williams said. "Is he going to be perfect? Of course not. There isn't a quarterback in this league that is perfect. He is going to make mistakes but we have to help him.''

Williams and Kitna helped each other quite a bit in 2006, but the Lions' record that year was still 3-13. The Cowboys are on pace for the same record this year.

I disagree, although I think I'd have more faith in Kitna in a playoff game, more due to some of Romo's sad performances than any faith I have in Kitna.

no he is not. Kitna will have more int's and screw them over more in the longrun. only reason his stats ended up half decent was due to Dez Bryant playing hard until the end.

it is pretty sad tho how the Cowboys looked like such a sad team when Romo went down, almost like they all gave up except Dez Bryant.

Giants pass on everyone btw, so i'm not faulting Dallas D that much.

while romo may have more "skills" kitna is a good game manager and doesnt make many stupid decisions. they will be fine (well, as fine as an 1-5 team can be I guess)

I think I agree... I think Kitna has a chance to pull this team together if the other players can rally around the guy

Kitna was an underrated QB when he was with the Bengals. Not spectacular, but could manage the game well.

Kitna's going to look a hell of a lot better next week. That was the first regular season game he'd played in over 2 years. He can be solid, obviously not half as good as Romo.

I tried to compare him to Collins in the game thread. Cowboy fans were not having it.

You do know Kitna has a career 154/151 TD INT ratio.

You said the difference between Romo and Kitna was the same as Young and Collins, which was an insane comment.

Next time out, the opponent will have the advantage of watching what routes he's still capable of throwing. The guy is limited, and will give defenses plenty to key on. He's been a give one/take one QB his whole career. It won't get any better now.

Kitna is REALLY REALLY bad...you guys are thinking of a past Kitna that isn't there any more...

some of us watched the preseason games...he can't hit the side of a barn



Romo is actually really good despite the 1-4 start...he has good stats and the bulk of his ints came from unlucky deflections, I would say he played even better than his good stats show.
