Of all the former quarterbacks in all the joints in all the world, they had to sign one from mine.

Good. He was a good addition to the team before.
 
2013-12-25 02:28:19 AM
It's a tough decision, but he knows the system.

Exactly.

Which is fine, and since he's getting $60k for one game, compared to his teacher's salary, I can't say I blame him either.

Don't you mean greatest Lions QB of all time subby?

I don't think he needs the money. He managed the earnings from his long football career very well. He must be out of his mind, or very confident in the original neck beard.

He's either mad as a hatter or looking for a hell of a party should the Cowboys win.

He just wants to have the best 'what did you do over Christmas break' story when school starts back up.

Not subby, but I'd say the description in the headline matches yours in significance.

You can't spell Kitna without INT.
 
2013-12-25 04:06:50 AM
Well, just so long as he isn't an old guy who blew out his shoulder after being drafted and losing his shot to go pro until he made a bet with the high-school team that he coaches....

At least give the guy a chance.

Remember:  there is no ME in TEAM.

Whew! For a moment there, I was afraid Ryan Leaf was teaching math.
 
2013-12-25 05:57:01 AM
With Deadpool coaching the qbs, this plan is sure to have plenty of bloody fun for all.

This explains why the Eagles have already charged my credit card and sent an email saying "Go ahead and print out your playoff tickets for round one."

Abandon all hope, ye who enter here..........

I think Scott Mitchell is a little old to be playing these days.
 
2013-12-25 08:05:15 AM
Favre was available.

Craw Fu: He just wants to have the best 'what did you do over Christmas break' story when school starts back up.


There may be some truth to that, although I would think that a retired NFL qb would have plenty of street cred with the kids already.
 
2013-12-25 08:42:28 AM
The man is 41 years old.  At that age, a sack is something he puts his beer in.

At the bottom the normal disclaimer we have and never will win the superbowl. So don't get to excited
 
2013-12-25 08:51:59 AM
He believes that Baby Jeebus is on the field next to him. So, of course- even at 41 and coming off retirement- he thinks he can compete.

"To make room for the addition of Kitna on the 53-man roster, the Cowboys released kick returner Micheal Spurlock on Tuesday, according to a source. He was signed last week and returned a punt 62 yards in the first quarter of Sunday's game at Washington to set up the Cowboys' first touchdown."

There's gratitude for you. Responsible for scoring points that helped the Cowboys win, and they let you go.
 
2013-12-25 09:00:36 AM
I'm increasingly convinced that the Cowboys are winning the Super Bowl this year

Lost Thought 00: I'm increasingly convinced that the Cowboys are winning the Super Bowl this year


That would be a neat trick, considering it was played back in February.
 
2013-12-25 09:23:25 AM

Gonz: Favre was available.


I was thinking more that they could've called up another, perhaps more renowned name that was available, say, one that holds the record for longest completed pass in a Super bowl?

Mr. Coffee Nerves: This explains why the Eagles have already charged my credit card and sent an email saying "Go ahead and print out your playoff tickets for round one."


Because of the THIRD string qb they just signed.
Beware of your confidence.
Usually a team coming off of such a rout falls flat the next game, especially on the road.

Happens all the time.
Their main returner, who is better, is back from injury.
Plus spurlock was to timid/slow on kickoff returns.
Go back to being liberal on the politics page.

The Jake Delhomme Era was RIGHT THERE, Dallas.  I'm sure he's teaching geography or something too!  lol

robsul82: The Jake Delhomme Era was RIGHT THERE, Dallas.  I'm sure he's teaching geography or something too!  lol


Nah, I think he's raising racehorses or something like that. At least that's the family business. That, and throwing lots of interceptions.

/hey, he was good at the U of Louisiana. No Brian Mitchell, but he was good.

Suck it, Tebow.
 
2013-12-25 11:37:26 AM
I fully expect Bears-Packers and Eagles-Cowboys to be total clownshoes.

I'm thinking Eagles are overconfident, and Orton throws for 500 yards to win the division for the Cowboys.

Bears-Pack I have no idea.

poughdrew: Bears-Pack I have no idea.


Ends in a 2-2 tie. The only possible way to cap off this year's NFC North.

fight, fight, fight for Washington State...

Deacon Jones can drink a quart of vodka and still take care of Kitna.
 
2013-12-25 12:59:32 PM
Jeff Garcia was available.
 
2013-12-25 01:00:49 PM
I wanted Tebow just to watch neck-beard get benched for him again

Just as likely: KIA.

Not anymore.

Good enough to get the Bears in.

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy (seriously).  He's like Tebow, except he can throw a short pass and every other word out of his mouth isn't Jesus.

You know what would be ultimate clownshoes? Orton leads the Cowboys to TWO playoff wins.

He's just as devout, but seems to respect peoples personal space more, spiritually speaking.

I just read in the Seattle Times that Kitna was the one who called Garrett to offer his services, and he will also be donating his pay for the week to his school.  To me, that's really awesome of him.

Also reported in the Dallas media. Kitna is awesome. Also, go CWU!
