I think Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt is one of the best coaches in the NFL.
I don't agree with his quarterback decision.
I told him as much last week when I saw him Nashville, for whatever that's worth, which is nothing.
Derek Anderson isn't a starting quarterback in my mind. He doesn't see the field well enough. That alone should be reason enough to start Matt Leinart. Anderson is a wild thrower. You never know where it's going. Yes, Leinart checks it down too much, but at least he knows where to go with the football.
The Cardinals are peddling Leinart around the league in a potential trade. It's not that I think Leinart is the next great thing. It's just that I think he sees the field better than Anderson, and gives the Cardinals a better chance to win.
I thought the Cardinals were an easy pick in the NFC West. They are talented and they have the best coach in Whisenhunt.
Now, I'm not so sure.
This is a quarterback league. Uncertainty at that spot has ruined many a talented team and could do the same to the Cardinals.
