  • Who starts at QB for Cardinals 2007

    With the new Headcoach and coaching staff, who will be their opening day starter?

    The kid from USC?
    The kid from GSOT?

    I really don't see how it couldn't be Leinart.

      KW seems to always impress enough during the off-season and pre-season to make it a tough call for the Headcoach. I agree Leinart has the inside track but it wouldn't surprise me if KW steps up to make it a tough decision.

        I'll be interested to see how Warner plays this situation out because barring an injury to Leinart, his days as the starter in Arizona are basically over IMO. Leinart looked comfortable and played well as a rookie and it would make no sense for the Cardinals to interupt the process they've started with him. He's now the present as well as the future. With no rumors about where Warner might go next, has he accepted the role as backup or is something in the works?

          How can it not be Leinert?
          The more things change, the more they stay the same.

            I don't think it's going to be tough at all, personally. It would basically be impossible for the Cardinals to have given Leinart the nod last year and then suddenly bench him this season to start Warner. He's their future, and their future became their present in 2006.

              There is no question it will be Leinart.

                It's Leinart unless he's injured. I think Nick and Mike got it right. It really doesn't make sense to start Warner. It would only be delaying the inevitable - and Leinart's progress.

                      KW will always be a Rams legend but let's get real his best days are behind him.The Cards have their QB of the future in Leinart,it would be madness to stifle his development,because for a QB to improve and learn they need to be on the field not holding the clip-board..:l

                        I have an equal shot of starting the season out at QB for the Cardinals (barring injury) as Warner does. None. Honestly, Warner should retire. He'll always be the comet that the Rams hitched onto for a wonderful 3 years but that's all he had. Hey, it was good enough to win the Rams a Super Bowl and for that I'm eternally grateful. However, he just dosen't have it anymore.

                          KW was good for 3 years.

                          Why: Mike Martz. There is no other reason. Martz is still the best OC in the league. He made KW and once KW was gone he was gone!

                            I have to disagree,sure Martz gave Warner a system he could be successful in, but to say that Martz was the only reason KW succeeded is an insult.Let's see Warner in his prime had a quick release,was accurate and a great long ball,he also stood in to find an open Receiver even if it meant taking a beating.How quickly some people forget how great a QB Kurt Warner was for the Rams,well I for 1 will never forget..

                              81, decaf is a wonderful thing dude. No one is saying Warner wasn't a great QB. Warner was in a system with the Rams that was extremely comfortable for him. Why? 2 reasons.

                              1. Arena League. It's a fast paced league, and the QB has to make a decision quickly or he gets nailed.

                              2. Mike Martz. Martz took Arena Football speed and modified for the NFL.

                              So, both are responsible.

                                Leinart fights to keep backup job with Cardinals Matt Leinart, who last year in training camp lost a battle with Kurt Warner to be the starting quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals, is in a fight with Brian St. Pierre to remain the No. 2 this season.

                                "I think they're just pushing me, as they've been doing for a long time now," Leinart said. "I've been through a lot the last couple of years and seen a lot of different situations and stuff, so what's another one for the books?"

                                Arizona Cardinals QB Leinart to become a father
                                August 30, 2006

                                LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Southern California basketball player Brynn Cameron will miss the upcoming season because she is expecting a baby with Arizona Cardinals quarterback Matt Leinart, according to her father.

                                Cameron is due to deliver a boy in November, Stan Cameron told the Ventura County Star for Wednesday's editions.

                                Cameron, a 20-year-old junior guard, and Leinart dated while he attended USC. He graduated in December and was drafted by the Cardinals in April.

                                Asked Wednesday about Cameron, Leinart said, "I'm not going to comment."

                                In the past, he has declined comment on other personal information.

                                Cameron and Leinart reportedly broke up last year but still talk frequently, according to Stan Cameron, who spoke to the newspaper from out of state.

                                "Brynn does not want to get married," he said. "She wants to finish school and let Matt do his thing and then figure it out."

                                Cameron said his daughter, who graduated from Newbury Park High in Ventura County, doesn't want to comment until after the baby is born.

                                "It might not be the best timing in the world, but we are obviously very happy to have a new baby in the family," Stan Cameron said. "Brynn just found out about a month ago and told the team on Monday."

                                USC announced Tuesday that Cameron would sit out this season for undisclosed personal reasons.

                                She averaged 9.8 points as a freshman starter for USC but appeared in only 13 games last season after undergoing a second surgery on her hip.

                                "Once the baby is born, she wants to get back to playing basketball again and finish school," Stan Cameron said. "I know Brynn will make a great mom. Things will be fine. It will be fun."

                                Arizona Cardinals: Who will be the starting quarterback?
                                by Kent Somers - Jan. 20, 2011 04:30 PM
                                The Arizona Republic

                                This off-season, the Cardinals will look for a starting quarterback in all the usual places: the draft, free agency, the trade market, between couch cushions.

                                Much depends upon the outcome of labor negotiations. Until a new collective bargaining agreement is reached, players can't be traded and free agents can't be signed. And the draft is three months away.

                                But it's never too early to speculate, or to provide free advice to the Cardinals, who went through four quarterbacks in 2010 while trying to find a suitable replacement for Kurt Warner.

                                Strictly for entertainment purposes, the Heat Index has come up with some early odds on who will be the team's starter in 2011.

                                2 to 1

                                Marc Bulger, free agent: The former Rams starter was the backup in Baltimore last season. The Cardinals showed interest when Bulger was on the market last spring, but already had Derek Anderson under contract. Bulger turns 34 in April and hasn't had a good season since 2006. But he's smart, hasn't been hit in more than a year, and could provide a nice bridge to the future, whoever that might be.

                                8 to 1

                                Kyle Orton, Broncos: He has another year left on his contract, but the Broncos reportedly would let him go for a second-round pick. That should be too steep for the Cardinals, who have the sixth selection in the second round, but maybe that is just the asking price. Orton is smart, has a decent arm and can throw deep. At 28, Orton could give the Cardinals a couple of years to address other needs.

                                15 to 1

                                Kevin Kolb, Eagles: Like other teams, the Cardinals like Kolb's skills and commitment to the game. But the Eagles won't give him away. Starter Michael Vick is a free agent and prone to injuries. Kolb will cost the Eagles just $1.4 million in 2011. There has been speculation that the Eagles would want first- and third-round picks in return for Kolb . If that's the price, the Cardinals likely would pass.

                                35-1

                                John Skelton, Cardinals: He showed promise as a rookie last season, starting the final four games of the season. But it was also obvious why he didn't play earlier. Skelton could use another year or two of seasoning before being expected to contend for the starting job. But if the Cardinals sign, say, a lower-rung free agent and don't draft a quarterback, Skelton could win the job.

                                70-1

                                Auburn's Cam Newton, Arkansas' Ryan Mallett, Missouri's Blaine Gabbert: They appear to be the top rated quarterbacks in the draft, and with the fifth overall pick, the Cardinals should have a shot at any of them. The guess here, however, is that the Cardinals go a different direction in the first round (pass rusher), meaning these three quarterbacks end up elsewhere.

                                80-1...
