Warner expected to be named starter


Chris Mortensen, of ESPN.com, reports Arizona Cardinals (http://www.kffl.com/team/6/nfl) QB Kurt Warner (http://www.kffl.com/player/1765/nfl) is expected to be named the team's starting quarterback, according to a team source. QB Matt Leinart (http://www.kffl.com/player/11162/nfl)'s poor performance Saturday, Aug. 23, probably sealed the decision. The source said Leinart's performance in training camp has been uneven, and the team has concerns about his arm strength and accuracy.

As expected.

Whisenhunt looks like a retard for his comments that "Matt's our QB" in the offseason, but honestly, by no fault of his own.

Leinart didn't/hasn't lived up to the hype.

I'll eat crow. I thought he'd be the best QB of that 1st round group.

None of them have been worth the 3rd, 10th or 11th picks to date, however.

Why are the Cardinals not giving him the time to live up to his potential? He was a 1st rounder after all.

I agree.

He's only had one full season of starts. (16)

I guess Cardinals management went to the Carl Peterson School of Developing Young Talent.

Given he's only been out for 2 years, I don't see how you could want much more out of Cutler. He's still got some growing to do, but he's on track.

Classic dumbassery from the Cardinals. Go with the 37 year old broken down QB over the young QB with 1st round talent who hasn't yet had a chance to actually display his skills.

This is beyond retarded, and Whisenhunt should be fired for his commitment to Martyocrity.

Carson Palmer was pretty shitty his first 16 starts as well. So were...well every QB not named Marino or Brady (who were still shells of what they would become).

They should have just let Leinart start, and then when he gets injured after 2 games, it wouldn't have even been an issue.

If the Cardinals have a team that can win now, why start the young guy over the proven veteran who had a pretty good season last year?

The infatuation with playing someone strictly because it might work out in the future is stupid...why mortgage now for then when you play in a WEAK conference and you have a team capable of winning a division? You can't tell me a team with a good LT, two great WR's, a good veteran HB and a good veteran QB can't get hot and win a Super Bowl if a few lucky bounces go their way...

Warner > Leinart in terms of THIS year...

Whisenhunt is making the wise decision.

They are probably favorites to win that division this year...them or Seattle...why would you choose a guy that is fighting for his job and puts up a 4-12 3 INT performance in the third week of preseason?

Warner was a NO BRAINER.

I dont like the QB rating number to define a QB but I will go with it for the sake of argument.

Lets bump the over under to 90 and say the bet to be hummmmm I dunno... a slab of ribs?

I know you live in IL but in the event I win you can send cash and in the event I lose I will send you a slab direct from Jack Stack. I believe they do that type of shipping.

I watched the entire Giants/Cowboys game...and Romo was the ONLY player to show up...dude, the Giants shut down the FRIGGIN' Patriots...Romo had the dagger delivered to Crayton to go up 28-17 after he made a beautiful scramble and improvised throw and Crayton flat out dropped an easy catch that would have gone for 6...and then no one blocked...

and the red zone pick happened on the last play of the game...on the 25 yard line...you expected him to throw a TD there?

That's like expecting Brady to march down the field from the 20 in 15 seconds in the Super Bowl to win...

Makes no sense.

Romo didn't choke if you watched that game...if you want to call that botched snap a few years ago on that FG try choking, sure, that can be considered a choke I guess but what the hell is he doing out there anyways? I think it's dumb to have your starting QB be your placeholder...

With the way that stadium is designed, it's a nightmare throwing the ball on a moderately windy day.

After Brees there is a huge gap. Brees is a fantastic QB. Distributes the ball well, always finds the open guy.

He is super underrated.

I said this last night about Palmer: If you've had him on your fantasy team, you know how frustrating he can be. He has all the tools to be great, but can never get over the hump.

I'd put the QB class this way:

Brady, Manning, Romo, Brees, Big Ben, Palmer, Hasselbeck, Favre, McNabb, Eli.

Perhaps...maybe you are right.

I am basing this off of the fact he's ultra talented and he has the monkey off his back (the New York media)...so I think he's going to build off of their improbable Super Bowl run and become the next big time QB in the NFL...not as good as Peyton, but definitely among the elite.

Well...I totally agree with you. Of course, I think Manning is better than Tom Brady but in terms of who you have listed, I don't disagree one bit.

I think McNabb is super underrated as well...he's actually quite a good pocket passer...

I think after Brees though Ben, Palmer, Hasselbeck, Favre, McNabb, Eli, Cutler, Rivers are all capable of having 'Drew Brees' caliber games they just aren't consistent.

Favre is one guy I have bashed over the years who I truly think is a great player but one of the most overrated player in any sport...he's always been a good QB but he has hurt his team in key spots time and time again the last decade...that's why the Packers aren't going to have much of a letdown with Rodgers...

I think Rodgers is going to be the next 'guy'...in terms of Madden, I think he can be a '94' QB real quick...

I'm not surprised, he didn't play well so this is what happens.....of course now they have a QB on their bench that has a 50 million dollar contract with an old starter...this puts them in a rough spot..

What do you do? Draft another QB and have 100 million dollars in QB's or do you give it to Leinart after basically going "man you suck", not really a fun spot to be in. Especially considering starting Warner probably won't get them much more if anything.

Which is why I'm not a fan of the 1st round QB...it's too risky and can set a franchise back 5 years...

You can find starters in the LATE 1st round, 2nd round, 3rd round etc...let them develop a la Aaron Rodgers behind a Kurt Warner or Jeff Garcia and not have that $50M problem wasting away on your bench...

Draft guys like Dorsey, Joe Thomas, you know, guys like that top 5 with a low bust rate...look what Thomas and the Browns did this year with DEREK Anderson...it starts in the trenches...guys like Leinart, Carr, Harrington, Boller, etc. etc. etc. are always going to fail without pieces around them...

If there is a Peyton Manning prospect sitting up front, sure, take him...but Alex Smith? Just because he's the best QB of his class doesn't mean he's #1 pick material...

I hate the idea of a top 10 QB...too much risk and it can kill a franchise for a half decade...

Would I love a Peyton Manning? Hell yeah...would I be ok with a Jeff Garcia EVERY year? Yes...because put Jeff Garcia on the Patriots and Tom Brady on the Chiefs and the Patriots are still a top 2 AFC team...

risks are fine but I'm sorry, Matt Ryan is so unappealing I'm glad he went before us...

I can't remember the last QB drafted I actually liked...Eli, only because of his makeup...mentally he was tough enough to make it in New York.

I think Cutler is going to turn out to be pretty good..and the Broncos took him at #11 I think so his contract isn't ridiculous...friggin' Ryan makes more than Tom Brady.

It's insane.

I like what the Packers did...that wasn't their plan, but I'm telling you, barring injury Aaron Rodgers is going to be a top 10 QB this year...and if he's top 5 I, personally, won't be shocked.

Yep, Roethlisberger was a good one...I liked his swagger from day 1...

You can have all the skills in the world, but to be a GREAT NFL QB, you have to walk around thinking you have a 10" dick...that's why Tom Brady is so good...

Swagger is just as important as arm strength.

So here's what we got...

• Threw for 200 yards or more in eight of his first 11 starts in 2006; completed 60% or more of his passes in five of his final six starts.
• In 2006, became the first Cardinals quarterback since Jake Plummer in 2001 to have three games in a season with a 100+ quarterback rating (all were in his final six starts of ’06).
• Became the first rookie in NFL history to throw for over 400 yards in a game when he passed for 405 at Minnesota on 11/26/06. The previous league record belonged to Plummer who threw for 388 yards against the New York Giants on 11/16/97.
• Leinart's 2,547 yards passing in 2006 also broke Plummer's franchise rookie record of 2,203 yards, set in 1997.
• Became first QB in NFL history to throw two TD passes in the first quarter of each of his first two games when he did it vs. Kansas City and Chicago.

Now if Croyle did any of that people here would jizz their pants, I wonder what the correlation here is that with Green he looked fine and with Whisenhunt he doesn't....not to mention Boldin flat doesn't like him and mentioned him as a main reason for wanting out and after he left Roethlisberger publicly stated they didn't have a good relationship..

I don't see his time in Arizona ending well..

When Pitt played them last year Roethlisberger wouldn't even shake his hand...I personally don't think they should have fired Dennis Green no one is turning Arizona completely around in 3 years but I thought he was doing a good job.

What Whisenhunt has done is completely stupid he's created a situation where the fans will always call for the other QB, where the QB's can't just play because they're always looking over their shoulder if they do anything wrong.

The Giants showed how to handle a QB situation the way the Cardinals are handling this one is asinine.
