“This is the most excited I’ve ever been for a season by far,’ Leinart said. ‘It’s the opportunity I’ve waited a long time for. I know this is my chance. I don’t have any doubt in my mind about what I can do.”
Leinart was supposed to be the Cardinals starter in 2008, but lost the job to Kurt Warner after a horrible performance in the preseason. The Cardinals are expected to be a more run heavy team this year featuring Beanie Wells in Tim Hightower to help take the pressure off Leinart and the passing game.
