ESPN Reports Dennis Green Changes His Mind

Dennis Green has changed his mind already:

Matt Leinart's time as a starting quarterback in the NFL will have to wait -- the Cardinals are sticking with Kurt Warner as their starter.

"Generally talking about the starting lineup is not something we do," coach Dennis Green said. "However, given the speculation that was out there we want to make it clear. We're disappointed after last week, but we still expect to be a playoff football team and we fully expect Kurt Warner to be the quarterback that leads us. That has not changed."

I think it makes more sense for Dennis Green to start Rudy Carpenter instead of Sam Keller anyway. Wait, which soap opera are we stuck in?

I am still disappointed about the way the Cardinals lost to the Rams. Now what remains to be seen is if they can rebound against the Falcons. It is just one loss and Denver suffered the same kind of loss to the Rams in Week 1, but looked like a totally different team this week against the Pats. But then again, Denver has a former MVP at Quarterback that has made two Super Bowl appear... wait, my bad. Denver has a former Cardinals Quarterback that we kicked to the curb. Both quarterbacks have started the year as bad as any veteran could. But my hope is that perseverance will pay off for the Cards and the Broncos by sticking with the veterans.

I am a Jake guy. I get crucified for it by my Cardinals buddies and several Broncos buddies have said I must have been sniffing glue. I am also a Kurt Warner guy. Both are proven vets. But Denver and Arizona have as talented of young backups as there are in the league. Tampa Bay would love to have a quarterback controversy instead of a ruptured spleen and nothing behind them. They actually tried out Shawn Kind (speaking of Cardinals rejects).
