Lions mum on QB situation; Kitna expects to return this season

Quote:
ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- The Detroit Lions nearly won a football game Sunday. On Monday, things seemed to be slipping back into a state of confusion.

The quarterback situation apparently was frozen by a missing trainer, and the team's star wide receiver was trying to stop endless trade rumors.

Citing the absence of trainer Dean Kleinschmidt, Lions coach Rod Marinelli refused to comment on quarterback Jon Kitna's injured back or his spot in the starting lineup when healthy. Kitna did not travel to Minnesota for Sunday's 12-10 loss to the Vikings, the first game he had not started since joining the Lions before the 2006 season.

"We'll have information about the injury for you on Wednesday," Marinelli said. "I'm not going to discuss that until we have a chance to meet with the trainers, coaches and doctors. As for the starting lineup, I won't talk about that until Sunday."

Marinelli's reticence was unusual because Kitna's injury happened in the Oct. 5 loss to Chicago, and Kitna had tests run on his back in the middle of last week.

For those who may have missed it check out the awareness of the Lions QB Orlovsky(Kitna's replacement) in yesterday's game...

File this under the "Very Incouraging News" dept.
Detroit's defense gives up 250+ passing yds and 421+ total yds/game. They've given up an average of 31.8 pts/game this season.

The bad news is we've given up an avg of 31.6 pts/game. If Kitna's back, and on his game, this could be a shootout.

It can be, but I can easily see the Texans winning this game. The next 3-4 games the Texans have will be very winnable.

That's what scares me. We don't do well with good fortune. We came off a 3 great games to start last season with a lot of swagger and then had a huge letdown against the Falcons and almost coughed up a game against the Dolphins. Then we went on the streak from hell.

And just think if we could have pulled out the W against the Jags and Colts and then had the next line of winnable games.

I hope we see Dan O instead of Kitna. I am confident that at home we can win this game as long as we dont allow Williams and Johnson to go hog wild against our secondary who I like more now than I did 5 weeks ago.

I don't think it matters who they put back there. Even if our D gives up there usual 4 TD's, our O is going to score 40 on this team.

I just hope our guys practice hard all week and come out Sunday afternoon and take care of business. Growing up as a team includes winning the games you're supposed to win.

I am bringing a couple of Lions fans to the game this weekend. I have a $100 bet on the season with one of them that the Texans will have more victories.

I hope Orlovsky plays.

Well I wasn't really a fan of the Texans back then so I can't really comment on that . However, we could of easily won against Jax and Indy, but we didn't. We did learn from our mistakes, and I think that showed, somewhat, in yesterday's game. Hopefully this team keeps learning from their mistakes, and improves each week. Maybe, just maybe, we will see the Texans win their first SuperBowl. Is it farfetched? Yeah, but its possible.
