Leinart Ready to Step Up and be the Cardinals Starting QB

Cardinals QB Matt Leinart said he believes he is ready to be the team’s starting quarterback and is excited about the challenges he will be facing, according to SI.com’s Lee Jenkins.

“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.
