InstantClassic Posted August 24, 2008 Share Posted August 24, 2008 Relevant because we play them...source: espn.com The Arizona Cardinals are expected to name Kurt Warner as the team's starting quarterback, a team source said Sunday. Matt Leinart's poor performance Saturday night against the Oakland Raiders probably sealed the decision. Leinart had three interceptions in the first half and completed just 4 of 12 passes for 24 yards. His passer rating was 2.8. The Cardinals won the game 24-0. The source said Leinart's training-camp performance has been uneven, and the Cardinals are concerned about his arm strength and consistency. After the game, coach Ken Whisenhunt said Leinart was still in the running for the Cardinals' starting job. "I know Matt's down because he didn't play as well as he would have liked," Whisenhunt said. "This competition, being pushed by Kurt, has made Matt tougher. It's one of the things you have to be as a quarterback." Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
