Broaddus Breaks Down Cowboys QBs

Bryan Broaddus has the first in his series of Cowboys positional breakdowns - the quarterback position. While QB is among the more mundane positions to consider on this roster - Tony Romo is the man, Jon Kitna is the undisputed backup, and Stephen McGee would have to look awful to not be the number three - there are questions for both of the backups to answer.


Kitna clearly has more than Brad Johnson did in his Cowboys days, but that is an incredibly low bar. Does he have enough to get the Cowboys through a 3-4 game stretch, if needed? I'm a little more skeptical than Broaddus seems to be. His arm is becoming a liability, and his judgment is overrated, as his career 152 TD, 151 INT ratio attests.


McGee was a curious selection at the time that Dallas made him the first pick in the fourth round in 2009, after showing very little at A&M. He hasn't proven the team correct yet, and in the next year or so he will really need to show something to stay in the league. Broaddus mentions his biggest liability: slow decision skills.
