Don't dismiss Jon Kitna-led Boys offense

After a night of losses for the Dallas Cowboys -- both a critical nationally televised football game and the team's starting quarterback -- wide receiver Roy E. Williams remained positive about his 1-5 team, as Tony Romo and his broken clavicle cede the passing duties to veteran Jon Kitna for six or more weeks.

    "Tony is our starter, but Jon is just as good," Williams said. "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."


Although it's difficult to share the degree of Williams' unbridled optimism, I do believe that Kitna will be a statistically relevant quarterback while Romo is out. In fact, I see some similarities. For years Kitna was the guy who managed to produce relatively flashy numbers for fantasy folks while his real teams couldn't win games. Well, look at the current Cowboys! They have one win, but entering Week 7, Romo was still a top-five fantasy quarterback. Even now, he's tied for seventh in standard fantasy scoring with Joe Flacco, despite a bye week and an early exit Monday.
