    Why would they play Leinnart, what is he going to have 3 practices under his belt ? A running back (more instinctual) I can understand, but a QB ?

    Dennis Green would put him in because Leinart will be the starter sooner than later. He will need all the playing time he can get. Green probably has no intention of letting Kurt Warner playing out the entire season.. plus we know from history Warner can't play an entire season without getting injured.

    Oh, plus it makes for good headline.

    Does it ever. If I were a broadcaster I would pray for that to liven up a *yawn* exhibition in a big way. (And a wee bit of extra pressure on Cassel's shoulders isn't a bad thing, I'm curious to see how he responds.)

    Oh yeah, curse us. I guarantee you the man with hardly any practices under his belt will end up torching our secondary. ;)

    Maybe to make him feel and look like a rookie stumblebum as a gentle and not so subtle cattleprod that he has a long, long, long way to go and by missing a major portion of training camp has made the journey a lot longer and harder? (And of course you do it while he's playing against his former backup quarterback who is now lightyears ahead of him in NFL knowledge and experience). Coach Green would never pass up the chance to send a very painful message to a rookie I bet!
    :D

    What better way to kick off an NFL career -- whether it's one play or a couple of series -- than against the Patriots."

    Isn't that what preseason is? To get experience now instead of later when the games actually count. Plus he did go to the mini and rookie camps.

    Should be interesting, maybe it is Greene's way of giving him a public flogging.

    yes, very interesting and for Leinart it is a good opportunity to start in pre-season games, no doubt

    and he is the future for the Arizona Cardinals

    i'm looking forward to see him in action at the Nfl level

    is it expected the 'sold out' also for this game @ The Razor ?

    Great point. I have mixed feelings about Green in general, but I thought he was the perfect choice for Arizona. A strong personality, lots of self-confidence and the ability to create a real NFL aura out there in the desert.
