    Didn't see this posted anywhere. From PFT:

    What do you guys think? Maybe Kubiak can work his QB magic and turn him into the next Rosenfels or Plummer. Or maybe he continues to falter under Kubiak, like Carr and Orlovsky.

    EDIT: Update on Pg.6

    can winston be a blind side pass protector?


    Leinhart is a Dan O, but is left handed and throws better hot tub parties

    Carr was already too far gone when Kubiak got to Houston and Leinart doesn't have the will to want to work, much like Carr did not want to work. That was on of the big reasons he failed in Arizona. If he couldn't learn from a hall of famer in Kurt Warner, who is the poster child of determination and hard work, then he has no future. Leinart is a lost cause....

    do not like.

    I don't like his attitude and he hasn't impressed me with his play in the NFL so far.

    I don't know that he's any better than Orlovsky at this point. Unless they are just giving up on Dan O I'd say absolutely NOT to Leinart. We've got a roster full of try-hard guys, we don't need another Travis Johnson attitude around here ever again.

    From the land of opposing QBs, Kurt Warner was always a favorite of mine. While I might have more respect for a Payten Manning or a Tom Brady, I don't like them at all. Warner I both like and respect and would always root for him.

    I am hoping Pete Carroll snaps him up .. however after the Lenwhale incident, and with matt being lazy(assumption there because of what I have heard) , Pete might not want him

    Actually Schaub always kinda reminded me of Leinert. Both are tall and big,
    not very mobile, and neither with a real strong arm. But the similarities are only physical, that's for sure. Between the ears, 2 totally different guys.
    The backup QB is just that, he backs up the starter and comes in if the starter is out and we know Schaub has some history of absenteeism, so would Leinert be an improvement over DanO ?

    For Pete's sake (no pun intended), his own USC coach doesn't want him.

    There is a possibility that the Vikings pick him up and cut Rosencopter. Then they cut Sage for us to pick up.

    Doesn't anyone remember all the musical chairs that the Cardinals had to play in order to accomodate his lefty status?? It was a mess.......and still didn't help. Cardinals Brandon Keith Moved To LT to RT and Levi Brown went from RT to LT were only some examples. The transitions turned into a friggin' mess. Can you see what would happen if in mid season, protection needs were changed and [1]our tackles were kept in their present positions OR [2]forced to trade places? I don't even want to think of it. That's not even to mention other things that people don't tend to think about........plays going preferentially to opposite sides (runs/passes)........and the increased difficulty for receivers to hang on to passes (just ask any receiver about that dreaded reverse spin on the ball, when you're used to the ball coming in with an "normal" opposite spin.:eek:

    I would hope that the Titans take him and release Kerry Collins...I would rather have Collins as a backup to Schaub than Leinhart or Dan O. I don't want a Lefthanded backup QB because it might throw our WRs out of sync with the opposite ball rotation. Leinhart is a pretty boy so he should go into modeling or soap operas. That opposite spin might be the reason Vick caught hell...well other than the dog thing that we won't talk about.
