    So I know they have Matt Leinart and that would probably cause weirdness, but hear me out:

    If they were to use two #1's to sign Cassel, they only lose a practical #2 this year and put Cassel in an almost identical receiver situation as he had here, practically guaranteeing his success.

    The Pat's get a low #1 this year and probably a mid #1 next year.

    In my mind we get better value for the #31 pick than the #3, especially if we can't unload it. If we want to move up we can package a #3 and that #1, as well.

    This "article" from PFT got me pondering this. Since getting picks is draft related and this forum isn't as full of knee-jerkers as the main forum, I though I'd toss this at a wall and see if it sticks. I like the idea of two firsts, even low ones.

    They've got a guy named Warner who's pretty good, but even if he retires, are the Cardinals prepared to tie up three #1s in their quarterback position?

    That's obviously dependent on if he retires, because he'd be cheaper to sign if he doesn't. But Leinhart might just get traded away instead. I'm not saying it's the obvious thing to do, but I wonder if it's crossed their minds.

    How sick would a Brady/Cassel SB be?

    i highly doubt the cardinals are ready to give up on Leinart. I think the odds of the Carindals becoming a possible suitor are slim and none. dont expect them to be in the mix

    They still have a few more years to give Leinhart a chance imo. I mean, Alex Smith had 4 years to get a chance, Leinhart's only played in 2.

    I think the Cards will low ball Warner (given his performance last year) knowing they have a fallback plan with Leinhart
