The talented Seahawks will go as far as their unproven, third-year quarterback Jon Kitna will take them. That's fine with Mike Holmgren, who likes what he has seen of the Tacoma, Wash., native. After spending the first II games of last season as third-string quarterback for then coach Dennis Erickson, Kitna started Seattle's final five games, winning three. In his second pro start, a 20-18 victory over the Oilers last November, Kitna completed 24 of 39 passes for 298 yards and two touchdowns, winning AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors. While Kitna's arm isn't as live as Brett Favre's, Holmgren calls Kitna a natural. "Intelligence, courage, maneuverability, leadership—in all those areas he gets A-pluses," says the new coach.
