REPORT: LEINART WILL NOT START
ESPN's Chris Mortensen had reported Monday night that sources had
informed him that rookie QB MATT LEINART would replace veteran QB
KURT WARNER as the team's starting quarterback this coming Sunday.
However, ESPN is now reporting that Warner will start this week's
game.http://www.fantasyindex.com


Anyone else wanna fess up to getting screwed by this faux paux?

The logic that announcement was based on seemed weak to me from the moment he said it.

He said something like "and the Cardinals coach will not commit to veteran Kurt Warner being the starter, so we're going to go ahead and report that rookie Matt Leinart will get the start next week."

couldnt agree more. That guy either has a gun to his head to say something ridiculous every monday night (anyone remember the Tony Romo fiasco?) or he's just not that bright, and desperate to make a splash.

I'm never listening or making any moves based on what this joker has to say.

He's such a piece. I wasted a good player to pickup Leinart.

Even if Leinart starts his not worth all that much. Everyone seems to think hes the second coming of Big Ben. There are very few rookie QBs that play their first year and have success. His chance of sucess is even less if you consider how horrible his offensive line truly is.

Mort was just duped by Green. His hunger to air it first turned his scoop into poop.
I love how everything I read about it stated that "Mortenson is reporting that Leinart will start". Now that there has been a change how come I don't hear "Contradictory to reports from Chris Mortenson, blahblah"? These guys stick together.
