Arizona QB Matt Leinart May Have Whined Himself Into a Trade

Matt Leinart is sad.

A day after Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt named Derek Anderson the starter for the finale preseason game, Leinart made it clear he wasn’t pleased with how this whole “choose the starting quarterback” thing was going.

Leinart WAS supposed to be the heir apparent. The golden USC football god who would bring Arizona back to football success  for the first time.  But, he spent most of his time watching old man Kurt Warner lead the Cardinals to their first Super Bowl and being generally ineffective and in need of a better haircut.

Leinart said that the decisions went “Beyond football” according to

When Leinart says “beyond football” he means “Wah wah wah wah wah wah wah wah” (insert baby rattle noise).

It’s hard to believe that a professional football coach wouldn’t choose to start the “better” quarterback because he wasn’t invited to his Friday night poker game.

So, the Cards are rumored to be in talks with the Buffalo Bills (where he can whine about the cold), the Giants (where he can whine about being a backup to Eli Manning) and the Oakland Raiders (where he can whine about the team drafting JaMarcus Russell ahead of him in the draft.)
