For the last 3 seasons I have bitched about Romo. His turnovers, lack of leadership, terrible decision making have been in my eyes why the Cowboys can't get over the hump.
People point to his stats as the proof in the pudding, saying he is always at the top of the league in passing yards and TD's. My argument to that is that he has the most talented team around him in the NFL, and what would be a 5 yd out on another team, turns into a 75 yd TD pass to Miles Austin/Witten/Jones/Williams/Bryant. I have said for years that if they had a mediocre QB that would properly manage the game (not turn the ball over)they would be better off than Romo closing his eyes and throwing to Witten.
Well, I finally get what I have wished for....Jon Kitna. I am saying now that Kitna will get them to at least .500 and with how bad the conference is, they could still make the playoffs.
Now time to just sit back and see what happens.

If you ask me Donovan McNabbs carreer is officially over, but some seem to think that the trade is going to work out for both McNabb and the Redskins.
Here is an article from ESPN talking a bout the transition.
ASHBURN, Va. -- As Chris Cooley talked Thursday about how easily Donovan McNabb was fitting in during his first week with the Washington Redskins, the six-time Pro Bowl quarterback was proving his tight end's point.
Redskins QB Donovan McNabb dishes on being dealt to Washington, his initial thoughts after finding out about the trade, his conversation with Andy Reid and what he expects upon his return to Philadelphia.
McNabb looked in command as he threw to his new targets on an adjacent field.
"Donovan's outstanding, it feels like he's been here for a couple years," Cooley said of McNabb, acquired from the NFC East rival Philadelphia Eagles for two draft picks on April 4. "Instantly, he's a leader. He knows what it takes to have a team together. He's talking to all the guys, fits in extremely well. I don't think anyone was worried about his ability to come be the quarterback of this team."
Receiver Malcolm Kelly agreed that McNabb, who started five NFC Championship Games and a Super Bowl during his 11 years with the Eagles, is already having an effect on the Redskins, who were 4-12 in 2009.
"He's a lot more laid back than I expected," Kelly said. "He's a cool dude. It brings the pressure of practice down. He's got a real strong arm and he's accurate. This guy has won a lot of games, a lot of big games. You have confidence in a guy like that. Even just being out here, being around the offense just for a few days, the things he already knows ... [I have] more than enough confidence in him."
Both Cooley and Kelly are enthused about the offense being installed by new coordinator Kyle Shanahan, whose passing attack with the Houston Texans led the NFL in 2009.
"A lot of guys are excited," said two-time Pro Bowl participant Cooley, who pronounced himself fully recovered from the broken ankle that ended his 2009 season in Week 7 -- against McNabb and the Eagles. "It seems like a very good offense for us ... moves guys around quite a bit. I have a ton of opportunity to move around a lot. I would compare it to what [former coach Joe Gibbs] did with the tight end and H-back. The quarterbacks all talk about really liking it. It makes sense as a scheme. You can kind of learn it as an entire scheme. They've been successful with it. Hopefully, we can continue the success."
Kelly said defenses will have a hard time figuring out how to cover the Redskins' receivers.
"Nobody knows which [of the receiver position] we're going to play. [Receivers coach Keenan McCardell] has us learning all the positions so he can just throw you there at anything and you know what to do," Kelly said. "It really makes you more of a complete player. It causes matchup problems. You can get lined up against linebackers. The way we line up, it really makes it hard for defenses to cover the wide receivers."

I heard he had a pretty nice throw around yesterday but didn't get to see it. Personally I think he could have done just fine with his throw the way it was. Athletics and throwing form are not all it takes to be in the NFL. Hard work and Heart is harder to come by then God given talent.
I think he will be successfull no matter what he does or where he goes, what do yall think.

Heres the story from FoxSports:
LaDainian Tomlinson has found a new home.
Tomlinson has agreed to terms with the Jets on a multi-year deal.
Tomlinson's agent, Tom Condon, confirmed the two-year deal Sunday night. FOXSports.com was the first to report the agreement.
Tomlinson visited the Vikings first, then the Jets, who sent him out to dinner with quarterback Mark Sanchez and offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer earlier this week.
The running back spent much of his career with Schottenheimer's father Marty in San Diego and the two maintain a close relationship.
"He wanted to go a team that he thought had a chance to compete for the championship," Condon told the AP. "He wanted to go somewhere where he had a chance to have a significant role, and so with the Jets he also was going to be very familiar with the offensive system."
Tomlinson ran for 730 yards last season and scored 12 touchdowns.

Well, at least to me it was...a colts fan.
It seemed like the perfect storm of crap that happened for the Saints to win. But that's nothing new, they did it all season. If only Brett hadn't thrown that interception I would be loving life right now.
Oh well, there's always next year.
