09:46 AM ET 08.28 | Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt's decision to switch starting quarterbacks for Saturday night's game against the Chicago Bears is designed to ignite a starting offensive unit desperately in need of an accelerant. Maybe starting Derek Anderson will provide the spark. Or maybe the demotion puts a flame to Matt Leinart's pilot light, which critics believe tends to flicker. Leinart certainly sounded motivated Friday morning in his first public comments since learning of the demotion a day earlier. "I'm frustrated and disappointed," said Leinart, who is on the verge of losing the started job twice in four seasons under Whisenhunt. "I've been efficient. I've been accurate. I haven't turned the ball over. I don't know how we judge performance when you take 13 pass attempts to the other guy's 40."

Picture Perfect. Leinart is reading the article at the same time we are. The face is priceless. Its like he is saying, "You totally did not just say that". Yep, the article does say that, and your not at U$C anymore.

He looks like he's forgotten where he is in that picture.

Whole lot of disappointment to go around when it comes to young Matt.

Either that or he's daydreaming about the good old days at USC...

I'm trying to shed a tear.....

it's not working. It's official, he's a bust just like Russell.

Trust me, Matty, I'm sure the Cardinals are even more frustrated and disappointed than you are.

August 28, 2010  10:39 AM ET

Maybe he should invite Whisenhunt over for dinner and cigars.

August 28, 2010  10:43 AM ET

maybe if he he showed some cajones when he played, walked, talked, etc. the guy looks like he's on LUDES on a perpetual basis.

Andersen's resume while spotty, does have a successful season with the Browns.

Clearly Matt has given them less than spotty.

WAITING FOR BASEBALL SPRING TRAINING TO COME AROUND AGAIN. ITS IS GOING TO BE A LONG COLD WINTER AGAIN.

Only the Cards could bring a long cold winter to the Arizona Desert.

That says it all LOL. And he'll blame Coach for all his troubles. He said on TV all he wanted was an equal chance. Two games started, no first downs

August 28, 2010  11:33 AM ET

If Whisenhunt has such little faith in Leinart then why is he still on the team? Maybe the truth to this scenario is that Matt likes being second fiddle and collecting a huge paycheck and hoping that nothing will ever happen to the starting QB.
