Cards quarterbacks both don't look totally awful

Before Saturday, the Cardinals didn’t have a great option at starting quarterback. Matt Leinart seemingly had lost his job – or had fallen far enough to make him even with backup Derek Anderson – and Anderson hadn’t been overly impressive in trying to take Leinart’s job from him. Basically, it was not an ideal situation for Arizona.

Then, you had Leinart making national news by complaining – though he said he wasn’t really complaining – about not getting enough snaps and about how hard he’s worked and about how he feels he’s been pretty efficient on the field.

Against the Bears on Saturday night, both quarterbacks looked pretty decent. Now, maybe there actually is a quarterback competition instead of coach Ken Whisenhunt having to choose the quarterback that sucks the least.

Anderson, who started the game, was 7 of 12 for 94 yards and a touchdown, and as the Arizona Republic points out , he provided a spark in the second quarter by converting on three third-and-long situations and throwing a 27-yard touchdown to Stephen Williams.

Leinart, meanwhile, was extremely efficient, completing 9 of 10 passes for 84 yards and a score. For the record, he still hasn’t committed a turnover in the preseason. He also looked good leading the team during a 2-minute drill late in the second half.

Predictably, Whisenhunt said he hasn’t decided on a starting quarterback, though CBSSports.com’s own Pete Prisco believes it will be Leinart’s job.

“It's a good problem to have," Whisenhunt said after the game. "(Saturday) it worked. Not necessarily because we made the change at quarterback. It was good to see us move the football, get some first downs, make some plays … I don't have to make any decisions right now.”
