I guess you are not alone in hating Matt Leinart, K.


He should be happy - now he can hang out on the Hollywood scene all he wants, and no drug testing! ;-D



I suppose a reality show appearance is only a matter of time.


Or a Raiders gig...
thx

Wouldn't be surprised if he retired.

Lenairt's Options

Joe Reedy wrote:Per multiple league sources, the Bengals are one of five teams who are in the running for former Arizona QB Matt Leinart. The others who have expressed interest are others that have some backup problems as well — Houston, Buffalo, New Orleans and Jacksonville.


The Texans have been widely reported as interested in Leinart.
Buffalo is far from a settled QB situation. He'd have the best chance to start.
The Saints, possibly fearing the Madden Curse, could upgrade their backup QB (currently Chase Daniel)
Jacksonville has long been rumored to be unhappy with their starting QB

It'd be interesting if he signed with New England- that would show he's committed to the game, or Belichek would rip him apart. At least as interesting would be to watch Brady's contract negotiations.

I heard he signed with Houston - he'll be listed behind Orlovsky is my guess?

Yep. They've reportedly be displeased with Dan "CFL" Orlovsky. R/Wo said they might/won't cut him, but a reduction of his 2.2 mill 2010 salary is in order.

So, like Favre, a receiver like Fitz can right a multitude of wrongs. I don't know how valuable DA will be for fantasy leaguers, but Fitz just shot right back up into the top 3 for me. He's going to get more jump balls than he can shake a stick at. (which makes no sense, I know...)



Let's please keep Favre out of any DA talk's, please... I am not a Leinart fan (those 5yd completions make your % look great, but they are worthless) but the thing he has over DA, he could hit the back side of a barn. DA's accuracy is what we would call ummm non existent, he has a strong arm and thats where it ends. I am hoping Fitz (Which I think was a steal for me in my draft round 3) will help fix his 2-3yrd miscues (sorta like what Moss did with Culpepper) so we shall see, I still think Pitt should have gave Leinart a 1 year low $ deal.

Was DA's accuracy stopping Braylon from getting more then 15+ TD's? Heck in fact the next season he was hitting Braylon right in the hands 40 yards downfield only for Braylon to continually drop them. His accuracy may be shotty in the short to medium range, but deep balls he's perfect for what Fitz and this offense needs. In real life DA may suck, but he never held Braylon back from producing as a fantasy asset and I don't think he'll hold Fitz back either.


Now that being said Max Hall has looked great and he's probably gonna start more then 10 games anyway so he is who we should be focusing on, AZ is definately gonna give him plenty of games to see if he has the look of a franchise QB, or if they need 2 take one next year with a top 10 pick.
