Kurt Warner wants to start for the Cardinals

Recommended Posts

Didn't he use to play for the Giants? Seems like such a long time ago.

Yeah, he was Willie May's backup there too.

Here are some notes from the Bickley & MJ show this morning in regard to the QB situation:

- said that Warner was a step ahead of leinart. He said that Warner was just so accurate in his passes that he wasn;t missing on anything

- he also said that both Warner & Leinart didn't miss any workouts this off-season

- described Matt's footwork as greatly improved from last year (The QB coach he worked with this offseason must have paid off).

- also said that Matt wouldn't be doing his radio show this year so he could concentrate 100% on football (more likely Wiz told him not to do the show this year. Seemed like he and his guests only talked about all the "hot chicks" around town anyways)

- Jurecki said both QB's were outstanding at the minicamp, but described Warner as a step ahead based on his accurate passes.

- He also said that Wiz asked Matt to keep a low profile this offseason. Wiz had to call Matt into the office when his picture appeared in a Las Vegas newspaper for a party that took place in January. Matt complained that he wasn't the only celebrity there, just his pic ended up in the paper. Wiz didn't care and told him as the face of the organization, he needed to dispel the perception that everybody had of him. He did keep a low profile from that point forward until the pics in April surfaced.

- Jurecki said the QB battle in Flagstaff will be the most interesting part of training camp this year.

I really think that the Cards should trade or cut Warner if they really want Matt to be the starter. As long as Warner is here, he will probably continue to outperform Matt. How can you justify starting a guy when someone is better sitting on the bench?

They have to go with Leinart. They really have no choice. Is warner the better QB if you ned to win a game or two? yes. But when you pick your opening day starter you have to go with the guy who can lead you for 16 games. There is no way in hell Warner can stay healthy for 16 games.

isnt matt leinart the guy who ended last year on IR?

you go with the QB who gives you the best chance to win. warner played fairly well last year. leinart really didnt show any progress. hes not athletic. he doesnt have much of an arm. the game seems to move a little fast for him. besides a 400 yard game against the vikings a year ago, he hasnt shown that he can get the ball to his WRs, both of which are top 10 material.

just like the article says, warner is the guy who threw 21 TDs in the last 8 games of 07. he can put points on the board. the problem with the cardinals is defense. they should make matters worse by starting a QB who may not even be NFL calibur just because he was a high draft pick.

Sounds simple, but I start the guy who gives my team the best chance to win. If that is Warner, then I don't give a rat's a** what pick Leinart was taken with. The Cards have some nice weapons and a creative offensive coach. They can make a playoff push with solid QB play. They aren't in a rebuilding phase.
