08:11 AM ET 09.01 | Matt Leinart's tenuous spot on the starting quarterback role may not be personal, but his stay in Arizona does have something to do with what may be happening away from the field. If Leinart has lost the Cardinals' locker room, [Ken] Whisenhunt has little choice but to go with [Derek] Anderson. [Said a source on NFL Total Access]: "He doesn't have the support of some of the great players in that offense that he needs to step forward. ... Right now, Leinart doesn't have the confidence of his teammates, and that affects this decision." If you're reading between the lines here, which doesn't take much, the inference is that many believe Larry Fitzgerald and other key members in the Cardinals' locker room aren't in favor of Leinart.

What else is new?

Here's hoping he finds it. It will come in handy at home games.

I would never do that. I like the guy.

One of the few.

He threw a team party and Paris Hilton didn't show up. Of course everybody is mad.

Leinart-bashing is getting old. Of course, so is pre-season. Let the games begin.

Is it me, or is this actually a carefuly-orchestrated plot to make us hate pre-season so that the owners' demand to convert 2 pre-season games to regular-season games will look like a great idea to the fans?

He would've had to have it at some point to actually lose it.

Well, that's his fault. He should have co-ordinated the event with her so it wouldn't conflict with her previously-scheduled drug bust. Her publicist went to a lot of work to get her face in front of the cameras again, and she wasn't about to mess it up just to party with Leinart.

Can someone lose what they never had?

If only he'd booked a boat for the party. With all the free publicity the Vikes got last time there's no way she would've missed that.

Leinart's departure is in the cards.

September 1, 2010  08:37 AM ET

and............ (still waiting to hear that he can lead something else besides a party)

September 1, 2010  08:38 AM ET

Hot co-eds are still waiting Matty boy! Who knows maybe you'll end up with the USChawks or was that USCheaters lol

Matt Leinart is yet one more example that nothing good in this world comes from being a d00ch3r. Sooner or later, the only people that come to your keg parties will get you a seat next to Mark Chumura in a district court somewhere.

Well, I got it, anyway.

This guy is not a candidate for Survivor. Dancing With the Stars...NO. The Bachelor...that's one thing he doesn't need. The Biggest Loser (in a manner of speaking). Here it is...guest star on Jersey Shore. He can hook up with Snooki. Better make sure your shots are up to date though Matt.

Time for the daily Matt Leinart bashing thread......

Can you imagine how Larry Fitzgerald is sweating with Leinart as his QB? His All-pro status is definitely on the line.
