Sitting here thinking of the horrible QB's we have had over the past ten years (Once again a thank you to Matthew Stafford for changing that......hopefully) Culpepper, Harrington, Jeff Garcia (broke his leg unfortunately) and dont even get me started about Orlovsky "I like to run into the stands whenever someone chases me". Batch was way below par. Then there is Jon Kitna, who was, I believe, the best quarterback we had during these dark ages. Besides 2000 when we went 9-7 under Batch, Kitna took us to our best record of 7-9 in 2007. He gave us a glimmer of hope with a 6-2 start, but hey were the Detroit Lions, and finished the season going 1-7. Kitna was only our starter for 2 years. Records 3-13 and 7-9. Both those seasons he posted over four thousand yards passing. 4208 and 4068 respectively. TD to INT ratio was below .500 both years, 21 to 22 and 18 to 21. Yet this was under the worst offensive line many have ever seen. In 06 he was sacked 63 times! In 07, 51 times! He could not stay in the pocket for more than 3 seconds without being hit or sacked. Watch highlights of his two years in Detroit, he scrambled for his life more than half the time. Im not saying he was an elite quarterback or even a good quaterback, but he was the best we had, he gave a us a glimmer of hope for one year, maybe to just keep our spirits and faith alive in our team. So i am going to say thank you Jon Kitna.
