    Makes sense. We know what Schaub and the majority of this starting offense can do. Makes sense to let starters sit this one out, what with a larger roster and less practice time thus far for the rookies.

    Now, the D, I want to see ALL of them on the field for at least a quarter.

    Lienart has been getting good reviews for his play in camp so far. It will be interesting to see if he can continue to play well with bodies flying at him for real.
    If he does well, another thing that will interest me is how will the Lienart bashers respond?
    I don't have strong feelings about the guy one way or the other, but there's no doubt that he is a polarizing figure who is pretty much hated by many people on TT.
    I have a feeling he is going to do really well, and hopefully put some of his past reputation behind him.
    Isn't it time that the fan base get behind him? After all, he is a Texan.

    FWIW, I'm a Longhorn fan, and basically loathe USC, so I'm naturally inclined to dislike Matt Lienart.

    Shop him for a draft day trade next year. If he could have a strong preseason could get something for him. He is 28 has a good amount of career left.

    Over here.
    What if Schaub goes down? Just because he's proven he's not made of glass doesn't mean he won't, and it could be right before or during playoffs. If he actually has his act together, we may need him.

    I wish Lienart well, and he needs the practice, so I'm good with this. But I'm not gonna quit calling him Hot Tub Boy no matter how good/bad he is. :lol:

    LOL! And I'm not going to quit accusing him of holding out his index and middle finger together and asking his teammates to smell his fingers.

    Gawd I was thinking the same thing.

    In fact, I have two daughters--ages 11 and 7--and I look at that photo and I think, "Just a few years ago, those 'ladies' were just little girls playing with Barbies and making a lemonade stand."

    Ugggh.

    THAT is why I cringed when the sonogram showed our first child would be a daughter. Lord help me.

    I have seen a lot of video posted of Leinart throwing at camp.

    He looks pretty good. I think he is picking up the offense, and he looks more comfortable here than he did in Arizona.

    Whatever we want to say about Kubiak's other coaching skills, he and his team of coaches know how to prepare and deploy a confident offense. Leinart seems to be finding his way here.

    Orlovsky was such a bad acquisition, but I never dreamed that Leinart would actually be a better option than him. I figured we just had two screw-ups as backups. Leinart is surprisingly adequate all of a sudden.

    We'll see how he adjusts to a real defense trying to kill him in that first preseason game. He's on the Jets radar; those Jets players that want to posterize him so it boosts their chances of making the roster.

    Girls like bikinis and hot tubs. Would you rather them be in one with a multimillionaire Heisman Trophy winner, or the night clerk at 7-11?
