    OXNARD, Calif. — In an iconic 1970s TV commercial, the “Maytag Repairman” bemoans the fact his services aren't needed.
    That's something Jon Kitna would never do.

    The Dallas Cowboys' Tony Romo was the only quarterback in the NFL to take every snap last season, and his backup said he hopes it happens again.

    And he encouraged Romo to get all the work.

    “Even when we were leading by 21 and all he had to do was hand off the ball in the last two minutes, I told him take every snap,” Kitna said. “I was happy for him he got to do it.”
