When I read late Monday that the Arizona Cardinals were going to start rookie QB Matt Leinart, I immediately thought of a post I made at the end of August:
Because of that, Lienert should be drafted as your 2nd QB before any of the bottom-feeding starting QBs are taken
From another post:
But Monday's QB change produced doubts. I expected Warner to lose his job due to injury. This would have eliminated him from getting the job back if Leinart struggled initially.
A QB controversy was not something I wanted to deal with each week, but that is what I have right now as Arizona announced yesterday that, in fact, Warner will start this week.
Does anyone doubt that I, and others who handcuffed Leinart to Warner, are going to see a mid-game change at some point and suffer a 5-13 with fewer than 100 yards and no TDs and a couple turnovers from our QB?
If for some reason you have a 2nd QB who in the top 3rd in the position, you should likely start him over Warner.
But if your back-up is someone like JP Losman, then how can you not start Warner with the receiving core of the Cardinals?
