Jon Kitna had a great season in 2006, although the Detroit Lions did not have great talent. Kitna led the league with 372 completions that year and had a personal best 4,208 yards.
It shouldn’t be surprising that Roy Williams sees the bright side of Kitna being the starting quarterback because the same year, Williams had his best season as a pro with 82 receptions for 1,310 yards.
The bad news in all those stats is that the Lions were 3-13. But those stats could be a sign of what we might see the rest of the season if the Kitna-Williams duo can re-connect.
