It'll happen (and it's looking like sooner as opposed to later) but if Green does it this week he's dumber than I thought.
If I'm not mistaken, Eli's first start (coincidentally also replacing Warner) came against a pretty good Atlanta D in 2004. Besides if Leinart gets broken by the pressure, he probably wasn't going to be a very good QB anyway
That's not a very intelligent thing to say.....if he doesn't do well in his first start because of the "pressure" then he isn't going to be a good QB? There have been so many QBs that have done poorly one year and came back to be good NFL QBs or are becoming good NFL QBs, just recently look at Eli Manning and Alex Smith, and then also look at someone like Drew Brees. You can't judge how they'll be for their career by their first year.
Looks like Warner is going to start afterall. I wouldn't count on much from Leinart this season.
