Dallas Cowboys tight end Martellus Bennett believes that starting quarterback Tony Romo shouldn’t get his starting job back so easily.
After Romo suffered a broken collarbone this past season, veteran Jon Kitna came in and ended up doing a good job of leading the Cowboys down the stretch by winning three out of four games after former head coach Wade Phillips was fired and replaced by Jason Garrett.
“I loved playing with Kitna,” said Martellus Bennett. “Kitna is one of my favorite people to play with. 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. Every position, I think we need to put more competition into it.”
It’s definitely not a good sign when a starting quarterback can’t get the support in the off-season of his back up tight end.

If the absence of traditional powers UConn, Tennessee and Stanford caused would-be viewers not to watch Tuesday’s women’s national title game, those folks should be kicking themselves right now.
They missed a heck of a game.
Upstarts Texas A&M and Notre Dame waged a back-and-forth battle that had all the drama and shot-making the lackluster men’s title game lacked 24 hours earlier. In the end, the second-seeded Aggies held off the Irish 76-70. parlaying their relentless pressure defense and superior interior scoring into their first championship in program history.
It’s difficult to pinpoint one hero for Texas A&M because so many players combined to bring the title to a school that didn’t even admit women until 1963.
