Peter King on Leinart

Opinions on Leinart from cnnsi.com:

A SAINTS FAN CHECKS IN FROM EXILE. From Michael of New Orleans (temporarily Houston): "Do you see any similarities between Matt Leinart and Jason White, and is Leinart possibly overrated? Both compiled gaudy winning records playing on physically superior teams loaded with skill position players and stout defenses. Both won the Heisman and the college championship as juniors and returned for their senior years only to lose the championship and not repeat as Heisman winners. Both are reputed to be accurate, but not overly strong passers. One is predicted to be the second or third pick of the draft and the other may be out of football.''

Good question, Michael. I think Leinart's arm is significantly stronger than White's was. Leinart doesn't have a cannon, but he has the ability to get the ball deep with accuracy. I think any team would be lucky to have him as their quarterback of the future.

Whodi, why would you want to have a quarterback of the future in the first round, and then a stud LB with the 34th pick when you can have Kerry Collins as our QB next year along with two rookie LBs?

Key word gentleman is the "FUTURE". I am so glad both of you think that we have another 2 or 3 years to turn the franchise into a winner, because we don't. You can post as many stories as you want to saying that Leinart will be a QB of the Future and that doesn't make it so and you know there are stories out there to saying "Buyer Beware".

Yeah i'm sure fans will come to see Leinart the first few games but if we aren't winning they'll stop coming. Then the Saints to L.A. rumors will kick up even more than they are today. We need to ask ourselves what's the best way to improve the entire team and not just QB.

This is exactly what I have been trying to say GT. Some are worried about the future while we know we need to win to keep the fan base interest up.
