Cowboys cornerback Terence Newman has stated his desire to exact revenge upon Lions quarterback Jon Kitna when the two teams play this Sunday.
[A]fter Kitna led the Lions to a 39-31 victory over the Cowboys in last season's finale, Kitna called [linebacker Bradie] James ineffective and said he didn't think Newman was as talented as Seahawks corner Marcus Trufant [which is true, by the way -Ed.].
"Basically, what it boils down to is you've got to watch what you say," Newman [said]. "Your mouth can't write checks that your ass can't cash. That's what it comes down to. Everybody's going to see those quotes. He better just hope I don't blitz off the edge because I've got 15, 25, 30 (thousand dollars) however much it would be for a fine. I've got that much for one fine. Revenge will be sweet, definitely."
So basically, Newman is publicly voicing his intent to injure Kitna with a cheap shot because of an opinion Kitna stated 11 months ago. That's pretty amazing. I can't stay mad at someone for two weeks, much less 11 months. It just takes so much effort to hold a grudge, y'know? Like, I guess I should be mad at the guy who went free after killing my parents, but that was, what? October? Can't we all just move on? I'm so tired of it.
