    Matt Leinart benched for Saturday; could be done in Arizona | ProFootballTalk.com

    Mike Lombardi has put forth the notion that Leinart could be on the outs:

    Unknown but he does well with the ladies on softball teams and in hot tubs.

    He was pretty bad on Monday. The kid they had in the 2nd 1/2 seemed like he had some talent.

    Derek Anderson could be getting another starting gig, and throwing to Larry Fitzgerald & Co.. I'm sure this isn't keeping him up crying at night.

    So what else is new? ;) Last year in preseason they told him he was welcome to compete... for the back-up job. And then after Monday's game, BSPN Radio was having a field day comparing his in-game interview with Vince Young's.

    I have nothing against the guy personally; there's a ton of great college players who never make it in the NFL. It was kinda bush league, though, the way he looked so dejected when the Cardinals took him.

    It's embarrasing this guy was ever allowed to start in front of Kurt Warner...

    He has a horrid attitude, after watching his pre season week 2 game, he was blaming WRs for absolute horrid passes, and even during the sideline interview was blaming teammates...

    I would have dropped him right then and there... he's not a leader, he's not a QB in the NFL.

    Man, was the 2006 draft putrid. Funny how choosing Mario Williams #1 overall was lambasted at the time, but now looks like genius.

    Maybe it might help if they ever allowed the guy to mature without instantly demoting him. It's clear nobody likes or wants him there in Arizona (which might explain the horrible attitude). He has yet to be allowed to grow into the role of starting quarterback and learn on the field with the starters. It's what on Sons of Sam Horn's board would be called SSS or Small Sample Size. Through a SSS, he hasn't done incredibly well but some quarterbacks need to get into a flow. Perhaps that's Leinart's problem.

    Article right underneath it talks about how Cassel has learned to be more demonstrative this year and show his displeasure with people making mistakes in practice (something he should have already learned from sitting at the feet of the Master). I think alot of this is Leinart problem too. I watched him on the sidelines last week, and his aw shucks, and I'm not worried, it will come around attitude does not exactly inspire the troops.

    Maybe Wisenhut is trying to light a fire under his arse?

    Does lashing out at a receiver make him better?

    Er, doesn't Tommy get in his receiver's face all the time if he feels they screwed up?

    Man, who would have thought that of the USC QB crew that's in the NFL right now, Matt Cassel would be the best? Better than Leinart, and Sanchez, and debatably even Palmer...

    :rofl:

    So we should just think of Gostkowski as our 1st-round pick and Maroney as the 4th rounder, then everybody would be happy?

    Leinart was given every opportunity possible. He just pissed them away quickly.

    It is his fifth year in the league, if he hasn't grown into the starting job being a first round QB who has had chance after chance after chance to win the starting job and prove that he is able to handle the pressure of the NFL- he hasn't done that. He has pissed on every opertunity, pissed off his coaches, thrown his teammates under the bus to the media: the guy has burned his bridges and is working his way out of town.

    I think the one reason why Leinart is still on the roster is because the Bidwills have paid the guy so much money they're pressuring Wisenhunt to do everything he can to give Leinart the chance to live up to his top 10 pick (something they've done several times before) even though I fully believe he would have been Brady Quinned by teams picking 11-20 if not for Denny Green having the #10 pick. Wisenhunt has no love for the guy and almost seems like he's "giving him a chance" just to say he is in order to satisfy the Bidwill demands. However, Leinart has looked like crap and has no excuses. I'm not a fan of Tebow, but in the few months he's been in the NFL, he's done more to fix his long throwing motion and improve his arm strength than Leinart has in 4 years.
