kitna knows something we don’t


Remember when Jon Kitna became the laughing stock of the NFL off-season?

“I’ll keep to myself what I think we actually will win. But it’s more than 10 games,” Kitna said during a June appearance on WDFN-AM in Detroit.

Quite a lot of confidence coming from the man who quarterbacked his team to a 3-13 record the previous year.  But, lets give Kitna a break, he was a very underrated player, just ask Lions WR Roy Williams.

While declaring the Detroit the best 2-6 team in the NFL last season, and predicting that the Lions would win the rest of their games, Williams threw in his two cents on Kitna, saying he’s the best quarterback in the league.  By the way, the Lions lost their next seven games.

However, Williams hasn’t jumped off the Kitna bandwagon, and the Detroit quarterback is on his way to meeting his prediction.

“Other teams can have their Brady’s and Manning’s, but we’ll take Jon Kitna anyday,” Williams said after a Lions win this season.

The Lions are off to a quick 5-2 start, good for fourth best in the NFC.  Kitna predicted more than 10 wins, so we’re assuming he plans on winning at least 11.  Don’t look now, but Detroit is on pace for 11 or 12. 

Is it possible the Lions actually meet Kitna’s prediction?  Only time will tell with Denver, NY Giants, Dallas, Green Bay twice, San Diego and Kansas City still on the schedule.  But hey, maybe Kitna knows something we don’t.
