07:44 AM ET 08.31 | Matt Leinart may have greater worries than whether he starts in Arizona. He might not make the team. ... People in and around the Cardinals' ballclub tell me that the former No. 1 pick might be cut, not because he hasn't completed a high percentage of passes -- because he has -- but because the players there have no faith in the guy and don't believe they can win with him. If that is in fact the case, it's over. He not only won't make it as the team's starter; he won't make it, period.

As we speak, his agent his programming his cell phone with the numbers of 31 other general managers. And Mickey D's and Burger King as his "safe schools."

The next Hollywood party he shows up at, he might just be there to deliver the keg.

Him and Jemarcus can collect food stamps together.

Matt Leinart has become "that guy"... what a schlub!

Some players dread having to turn in their playbook. Leinart needs to worry about turning in his clipboard.

So, will Matt be the first of the vaunted QB class of Cutler, VY and himself to flame out? So much hype, so much off the field drama, not a whole lot of accomplishment on the field.

Not. They have enough money for their grandkids to be set for life if used wisely.

maybe if you change your name to Count Chocula she'll drop the idea.

I hope these busts save and wisely invest their money. They hit what amounts to a lottery jackpot at 22 yrs old and then have 50+ years to live off it. That's assuming they don't want to work at real jobs for the rest of their lives - which most of them don't.

I dont think Leinart has been getting paid in Fed notes in a while. I heard something about being paid in lapdances at some club PacMan makes it rain.

If I were he I would probably be thinking I should have taking something other than ballroom dancing...
