Well, we’ve got our backup quarterback, and quite honestly, I think Jon Kitna is the best guy out there who the Dallas Cowboys could have back up Tony Romo.
I don’t mind the trade at all. Henry certainly has declined over the year in Dallas and we’ve seen him get beat real bad in important games. Kitna can win games. He also can challenge Romo for a starting spot in my opinion, especially if Romo ever tries to have another one of those Buffalo-like games in his career.
Kitna had back problems this past season, and if you recall, there was a lot of talk that the Cowboys were trying to obtain him then. But he was put on the unable to perform list because of his back and the Cowboys moved on.
I think it is a good trade. It provides Orlando Scandrick or Mike Jenkins an opportunity to shine and shores up a role we desperately needed filled. Kitna is a competitor, has a sense of humor, and plays hard. I think it’s going to help the Cowboys.
