Martellus Bennett Likes Kitna's Leadership, Suggests QB Competition

Tony Romo-haters, this is your post. Backup tight end Martellus Bennett made comments yesterday specifically saying that Jon Kitna should get a chance to compete for the starting position in training camp, whenever that is. For a moment, let's forget about the fact that he might have just committed career suicide by challenging the starting potential of the guy that is in charge of his personal production. Does what Marty B says have any merit?

"Kitna is one of my favorite people to play with," Bennett said Tuesday on ESPN/103.3 FM's Ben & Skin Show. "Just being out there on the field with that guy just makes you play even harder.

"He made some things happen in limited time, so I think if he got a longer chance, he'd be able to do more. I hope there's a chance for a quarterback competition this year."

By stating that Kitna makes you play even harder, he is clearly indicting Romo's leadership capabilities, a knock that has been whispered here and there by Romo detractors. I guess it's safe to say that Bennett isn't involved in the team sessions organized by Romo and Jason Witten.

We're all appreciative of the job that Jon Kitna did in relief of the injured Romo, but Bennett may not be seeing (or care about) the big picture of what a QB competition would do. Especially when that competition involves a 38-year-old quarterback that has never led his team to playoff success. Clearly, Tony Romo is QB1 for the Dallas Cowboys, as he should be. Bennett is known for some crazy comments, has he just added another, or do people feel a competition would be a worthy exercise?
