    Leinart will start vs Steelers but Warner ready

    http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pitt.../s_529229.html

    By The Associated Press
    Tuesday, September 25, 2007
    TEMPE, Ariz. - Matt Leinart still is the starting quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals.

    Kurt Warner will be still waiting in the wings as the team's "no-huddle" specialist after nearly leading the team to a comeback victory at Baltimore on Sunday.

    "We're going to try to find ways to keep Kurt playing based on how he played yesterday," coach Ken Whisenhunt said on Monday. "But I don't feel like Matt has done anything to lose the job."

    How Leinart feels about this unusual two-quarterback approach is a mystery. As reporters crowded around Warner in the locker room Monday, Leinart walked past with a towel over his head, grabbed the playbook out of his locker, and left.
    You can read the rest of the story via the link. Leinart is in a fragile state right now, he could easily tank and lose all his confidence if he's not careful, ala Kordell Stewart when he was yanked. If Leinart struggles, Whiz won't hesitate to put Kurt in so we'll need to be ready for both QB's.

    Dude it sounds Whisenhunt might rotate both QBs in the game.....Thats retarded...lol Teams have tried that in the past and havn't been to successful.....You have to pick one guy and stick with him.....

    You make a great point......Pulling Matt Leinart would shatter his confidence....If that happens that will set the Cards back even further.......He is the young guy and the Cards have to find out if he is indeed their future QB....Look at the **** Ben went through last year...He is doing fine this year....

    I was slightly worried about this game but if Whiz is going to play musical QB then that will play into the hands of the Steelers defense....I know he is thinking when he put Kurt Warner in there and went with the no huddle it did throw the Ravens D off....But now the Steelers will see that on film and prepare for it this week....

    I thought Whiz is smarter than this, this is a mistake!!! Unless the organization is playing to build the team and not win now!!! Warner is gonna give ARI the best chance to beat us. He is an ex arena league guy who thrives on the quick release. He's a 5 step drop and gun'it type of qb, which is gonna be the best way to work the zone blitz we run. Lienhart is gonna get beat up... BADLY. Immoble, Inexperienced with little arm strength. Tha boy is in trouble i expect to see Warner in the 3rd but its probley gonna be too little too late!!!!!!! Great post TOPGUN thats just what i wanted to hear!!!!

    I really don't see any way that Arizona can stay in this game. The Steeler defense will once again take away the running game and force the Cardinals into a one dimensional passing game. At that point the LeBeau defense will pin its ears back and go after the quarterback(s). Won't matter who is in there.

    The Ravens struggled with them only because the anemic offense of the Ratbirds struggled moving the ball. The Steelers will not have that problem! I realize that the Steeler offense has still not started clicking on all cylinders but I believe they are getting closer to that happening.

    Just as in all of our other opponents I would have to give the Steelers the edge in offense, defense and special teams. After all haven't the Cardinals been referred to as Steelers II because they have snatched up all of our rejects? How could a team that hovers around our table begging for table scraps be considered a legitimate threat? The Steelers will not go undefeated but this will not be the week that we lose.

    One of the things that I have liked is that Tomlin has this team playing with a lot of confidense and poise. Under Cowher we used to play down to our opponents level and squeak out wins against inferior teams. So far under Tomlin's regime we are beating up on the teams that we are supposed to beat. We are taking what other teams are giving us and exploiting their weaknesses.

    I don't know, I kind of want to see the old man Kurt Warner in there.... He has been a fumble machine since 2001......Yes, he has the quick release to get rid of the ball quick, but if the pressures gets to him then he will cough the ball up.....

    Whoever Coach Whisenhunt starts he has to stick with one QB...Rotating the QBs like that will divide and kill a team....

    Warner is one of those guys that can come in and spark a team here and there but if you ask him to do the job full time he'll crumble. If Leinart is your man then stick with him, he needs all the experience he can get. This musical QB thing is a disaster waiting to happen because if Kurt starts coming in all the time and they either win or get close to winning games nobody is going to want Matt in there and it's not like Warner is there future. They need to stick with Leinart no matter what and let thim get the experience he needs.

    As far as this game goes, Im not worried about the Cards defense much, our offense should be able to move the ball effectively enough against them to take the crowd of out of it so we can take control. Our defense as BG4vr mentioned should be able to contain that tin foil OL of these and get after the QB all day long and if they do that it's going to be lights out.

    We need to stay on our game here and not let the cards hang around and try to steal one from us. This is a HUGE game for them and we need to jump out early and make them one dimensional asap.

    This past weekend with Whiz putting the old man in is a complete game plan against us. He was starting early to try and confuse our game plan for them.

    He's not stupid.

    I don't like to predict games just cause I believe it's bad luck, but I look for Ben to finally have a BIG day. He has been great thus far, but I have a feeling he and his WO's will have a big day.
