Former MVP, Kurt Warner, might finally get his preseason start. Head coach of the Arizona Cardinals Ken Whisenhunt said he’s thinking about putting Warner in against Kansas City on Saturday. Warner has been itching to play since Arizona made their quarterback situation a supposed open competition.
Warner had to take over as field general last season following the collarbone injury to then current starter Matt Leinart. His injury was season ending and with Warner taking over, he played what he called his best season of his career. He put up 3,417 yards with 27 touchdowns, picked off 17 times for a passer rating of 89.8.
The quarterback situation is pretty much on a performance basis and we all know what Warner can lead well on the field, but can Leinart match that? Up till now I’d say no, but he looked sharp in the first preseason game against the Saints. Leinart still has a long way to go to be a great quarterback in the NFL, and for the time being they need to play Warner while he still can, if they want there best shot for making a playoff run this year, it’s with Warner at the helm.
