Kitna was "taken out of context"

Well this is no suprise, the same guy who showed up his coach by showing up in a naked coach costume "just trying to have fun", is now getting a head start on escaping the Dallas pressure.

Look, there has been a lot of heated debate on this blog lately regarding Jon Kitna's comments and just how big a deal they are(n't).

I've tried to see both sides but it's not working. I'm fired up about it and it will be top of mind come high noon on Sunday. I don't apologize for the fact that the games are more entertaining to me if I have a little bulletin board material to chew on.

Anyways, now the news comes down that Kitna claims to have been taken out of context during his interview. I got to say this only lowers my opinion of Kitna and it is pretty fraking weak of him to throw that out there. Props to the DMN for that news.

Kitna didn't say anything wildly controversial in terms of the points he was making. If he had said "they looked lost out there and we took advantage of it" or "we saw where we could throw on Newman and it worked" I wouldn't care and I doubt the story would have any legs. The fact is he called guys out by name and then he put down their abilities. In my opinion, and I respect you if you differ, thats just disrespectful. It's also intentional and if you want to do that be a Man about it and stand by it.

Now, I will be very disappointed if I see flags for late hits or unsportsmanlike conduct or taunting, etc. this Sunday. There is a difference between payback and hurting your team with lost yardage. My dream is for Kitna to get sacked (frequently) cleanly but with authority, like Favre was on Thursday, and for whoever does it to just walk away like they've been there before. In other words, just play the game but remember that you've been called out by a knucklehead who is now, a year later, trying to clarify his comments, or rather weasel out of them.
