The New York Giants seemed to impose an impossible task for the Dallas Cowboys last week, but looking back at Jerry Jones' 33-20 victory, perhaps Big Blue isn't all it's cracked up to be in 2010.
But aside from Tom Coughlin's team, the Dallas Cowboys were impressive on the day. Under new head coach Jason Garrett, Dallas had no problem putting points on the board, and more to the point, no problem forcing turnovers against such a potent Giants offense.
However, as fun as it is to credit the entire Cowboys team, one player stood out amongst the rest on Sunday, and his name is Jon Kitna.
After it was all said and done, Jon Kitna wound up with 327 yards and 3 touchdowns, against one of the league's best overall defenses, who has had no problem grounding quarterbacks like Jay Cutler in recent weeks.
Still, somehow Jon Kitna managed to avoid all of this hype, and now the debate springs up as to whether Kitna can be labeled as a decent quarterback in the league.
To answer this question, Jon Kitna has always been a good quarterback. With 14 years of experience under his belt, Kitna has made many professional starts in his time, and this recent bout with Dallas, certainly isn't the first.
Looking past experience though, Kitna is also a very well rounded passer. It's a large number to swallow, but Kitna's 28,369 career yards are easily complemented with his 169 touchdown passes, that have accumulated with various teams.
Therefore, knowing all this, yes, we can label Kitna as a decent quarterback, and if he keeps this momentum flowing, maybe the Cowboys won't become the biggest laughing stock since the 0-16 Detroit Lions, in professional football.
