Yeah, I agree that Leinart isn't as bad as the Cards have been making him out to be. But I think it's more an issue of him being a colossal *****-bag. If you noticed during the preseason. None of his offensive teammates seemed to care about him. They didn't help him up off the ground and they seemed to disregard him in general

That makes sense. But as an NFL fan, I was sad that Warner retired but a little excited to finally see if Leinert could be a good NFL quarterback. And now I may never know.

I do think Leinert is much better than most think and the Cards did not at all give him a fair chance. I hope Buffalo or someone like that picks him up and lets him compete for a starting job.

I think Leinert has the abilities, but lacks in leadership. He lost the respect of his team, and could never get it back. He'll do a lot better in a new city and environment. I've always been a fan of the underdogs so I'd like to see him get another chance.

He was in the driver's seat. He has no one to blame but himself. He also had 3 years to pick Warner's brain. It's very disappointing he didn't learn a whole lot from Warner about work ethic and how to be a leader.

Or maybe the Cards are just dumb? Look at his numbers. He played pretty well during the preseason. Needs to work on that deep throw accuracy, but he can still play well. And about the leadership faults, its hard to believe he isn't a leader as he led USC to at least one national championship. But I guess you can't argue with the reality of his players not liking him during the preseason.

But looking at his numbers, he only got one preseason game where they let him throw over then times. Maybe he would play better if he actually got into a rhythm.

It's all about attitude. Also, they've been evaluating him for 3 years, in practices, training camps, preseason games, and regular season games. They did not need to see a lot of him this year to know what they had with him.

He did not earn the respect of his teammates, he demanded it. That's his major problem. If you read the blog entry of Curtis Lofton on ESPN, you'll see how a true leader acts.

I lived in SoCal when he was going to USC so I watched them a lot. I thought he was going to be really good. I hope he has been humbled some so he can get another shot with another team. He's going to have to work and work extremely hard to get there.

I think he is/was due 7 million next year in his contract, so they had no shot trading him this late in the preseason process. Now that he has been cut, I'm not sure how that works, but I'm sure someone will take a shot at him as a backup so he can get acclimated to their system.

A couple of the hosts on Sirius NFL radio went through all the teams and their quarterbacks and they did not see any team in which he could start this year, like he wanted to do.

I wish him well anyhow.
