Leinart’s In the House in Arizona

You have to love Denny Green, who came out yesterday and basically blasted number one pick Matt Leinart for not yet being in camp DESPITE being offered a 14 million dollar bonus.  Low and behold, just a few hours after those comments, Leinart signs a 5 year deal worth over $50 mil with that same $14 mil bonus.  What the heck was he and his agent waiting for?  Now, like Phillip Rivers a few years back, Leinart is in the hole and has a long way to go before he will ever get to see some real playing time.  It just amazes me how dumb these agents for first rounders are that don’t get their players in on time, or even just after missing a few practices.  Don’t they realize the harm not only in playing time that is to come to the player – but to the realtionship that the player may be hurting with his future teammates.  For now, Kurt Warner will be the man in Cardinal land – and as for Leinart, good luck trying to learn on the fly.
