For one of the first times since Boomer Esiason left, there will not be a quarterback controversy in Cincinnati. At least not right away. New head coach Marvin Lewis has deemed Jon Kitna to be his starter, even if the team uses the first overall selection in the draft to take a quarterback.
We love that Lewis is taking a long-term approach toward developing his next quarterback, almost certainly either Byron Leftwich or Carson Palmer. The decision also offers a reassuring vote of confident to Kitna.
Any news is good news for the bungles, right ?
