With strong indications that Arizona Cardinals quarterback might be announcing his retirement earlier today, all eyes will be turning to Matt Leinart. Some people forget that Warner was brought to Arizona in 2005 to be Leinart’s backup, but the Southern Cal product was too busy banging Paris Hilton (allegedly) and allowed Warner to eventually play him out of a job.
With that in mind, it’s interesting that many people wonder if Leinart, entering his fifth season as a pro, is ready to get behind the wheel of the Cardinals offense. His coaches don’t trust him, nor do his receivers. In six appearances this season, Leinart threw three picks. That’s hardly an adequate sampling, but it does nothing to alleviate the Cardinals’ concerns.
Personally, as a blogger, I’m ready for Leinart’s sexual exploits to become front-page tabloid fodder again. Kurt Warner and his Jesus love are pretty boring, plus Warner’s wife is looking a lot better now, so ripping on her is out. Here’s hoping that Leinart can just hang onto the job long enough to crash and burn over the balance of a full season. I’m just rooting for chaos. And maybe syphilis. Syphilis and chaos.
