Leinart headed to Houston

Matt Leinart has a new home, and once again, he’ll be a backup to another quality starter.

The much-discussed former Cardinals backup, who couldn’t beat out Derek Anderson for the starting job in Arizona, signed a one-year deal with Houston this morning, various outlets – including ESPN.com and the Houston Chronicle – are reporting.

And heck, he might not ever be the backup to Matt Schaub quite yet. Chris Mortensen of ESPN writes he’ll be the No. 3 quarterback behind Schaub and Dan Orlovsky for the time being – at least until Leinart can learn the offense.

Houston is already a very good team.  With Leinart, they definitely take a step back from their positive development which has taken years to accomplish.

Houston should be a playoff contender.  Let's just hope that Leinart is not asked to step in and take over during some of their "big games".  That would not be good at all!

This is just him trying to hold on to a dream.  There is no way, barring injury that he will EVER start for the Texans.  The QB position is just too strong.  He shold have picked somewhere like the Redskins, Donavan is going to retire alot sooner than Schaub will.  Oakland, Minn, Tenn, Phil, anywhere he could at least dream of starting.  But no way in hell will he take over in Texas.  He's had five years to try to win a starting job and couldn't do it, he may not be a bust, but he sure as he!! isn't a deal either.

He sux. At best Anderson is a backup. That means Matt couldn't even beat out a backup so that pretty much makes him a backup to a backup. <br /> <br />

Good luck Leinart, you willl be needing it.  Enjoy being a backup in another NFL city.  Your chances as a starting QB in this league are over.  Take the paycheck and start working on what you are going to do after your NFL career....which is bound to be pretty short from this point on.

Matt Leinart being signed by the Houston Texans or any NFL team is really no surprise, especially with football being such a violent game that backups are always going to be in demand.

What should be pointed out here is that he only got a one year deal, and not a 2-year deal which includes a team option for the second year. I hope I am wrong but it is looking like that there will be a work stoppage/lockout come this time next year.
