    .... make that two.

    It's amazing what a difference changing just the QB makes. I mean there are 10 other guys on offense, and another 11 on defense, not to mention the subs on the sideline.

    But they looked like a totally different team, no fumbles.

    He got robbed of his first win by a shanked field goal.

    I feel sorry for the kid though....... Chicago next week.

    i can't really say he got "robbed." he did throw a pick inside his own 20 that setup the game-tying field goal by the chiefs. a HORRIBLE throw. after ty law caught the ball, anquan boldin threw his arms up at leinart.

    the good news, that was pretty much the only dumb thing he did. i've never seen a rookie QB show such pocket poise. and he threw several bombs downfield, as well. larry fitzgerald was hurt early in the game and he had to play without him for 3 quarters. he really looked like tom brady out there.

    right now, there's no question that leinart is better than kurt warner right now.

    and he'll get a stage on monday night football against the bears. oooh boy.

    um, we are going to have to define what poise is, if you think Vince did'nt


    but back to Matt, was that 50 yard TD a shocker or what, I thought he had the weekest arm of the rookie QBs??

    Then 4 sacks, & still showing poise, unbelievable........ I'll have to watch the game to say he looked like Brady though........ hope nfl replay picks it up.


    And isn't this the same OL that Warner showed absolutely no poise behind?? Or was there a new starter Yesterday??

    I said after the draft that Leinart would have the best rookie season of the major QBs, simply for his receiving threats and playing in Green's offense. IMO he entered the league as the most "NFL mature" and will be a strong candidate for OROY ... oh wait, that's right, Reggie Bush won that the day he signed his contract.

    I don't know if he had the "weakest" arm. I've never been that impressed with Vince's arm. It's early for comparisons but the "Tom Brady" one is probably pretty accurate.

    damn you good......

    I've been fishing, just ain't been catching.

    But Warner was fumbling quite a bit as well.

    Well despair not for Carr will have a much tougher time this Sunday than in Sundays past so you, and your Carr-hating cohorts, will be able to renew the "Carr Sucks" mantra ....

    Think so? I don't think the Cowgirls will be any more difficult than the Eagles.

    Other than the aspect that we really need to establish a running game soon.

    I agree..... they'll get pressure, but David'll stay cool. I doubt they get more than two sacks. I'm hoping for none.

    Lienart is looking great.... the whole team looks great. Edgerin James who came into this game avg'ing 3.1 ypc is having a good day. The defense, looks like Chcago's defense, pressuring Grossman into 2 INTs.......

    oh yeah, Lienart has two TDs already.

    Dude--EJ is averaging less than 2 ypc in the game. I know as a Texans fan that may look good...

    His first 7 carries were for more than 5 yards a pop, and one -1 yard. I thought he was going to be able to keep that up.

    I guess he sucks.

    awful playcalling + bad offensive line = no holes for edge
