The QB is experienced and shows fine leadership attributes. He’s good at analyzing pass coverages and defensive schemes. Kitna has been a streaky passer for his entire career. He holds the ball too long and often takes sacks. The signal caller, who often tries to force to force the ball into tight spots, has a tendency to toss the ball to the opposition. His timing and release are under average. The aging Kitna is better suited to be a backup and not the starter spot.
