Interesting story on Leinart!

LEINART TO SLIDE ON DRAFT DAY?

The whispers are starting to be heard on the information superhighway that is the NFL rumor mill.

Will USC quarterback Matt Leinart be this year's Aaron Rodgers?

In 2005, Rodgers was the latest over-hyped product of Cal quarterback guru Jeff Tedford. In February, many had Rodgers pegged possibly to go as high as the No. 1 overall selection in the draft. But the 49ers ultimately opted for Utah's Alex Smith in the one hole, leaving Rodgers on the board.

RE: Interesting story on Leinart!

It's amazing that people think Leinarts stock has fallen so far. Before the Combine in Indy. Before the private displays are even scheduled. Well if his stock has fallen so far, I guess we'll save ourselves a boatload of money and just pick him up with our second rounder.

RE: Interesting story on Leinart!

profootballtalk.com is to sports as the tabloids are to hollywood. They choose an athlete and find anything they can think of to bring that person down. Leinart has done nothing to show he isn't the best qb in the draft. People are so high on Cutler and he was horrible yesterday in the Senior bowl. Vince Young wasn't going to turn pro until he had one great game, and everyone loves both of these guys. Leinart had an amazing career and all people want to do is bring the guy down. As BJ said, we haven't even seen the combine workouts and people are digging up anything they can to crush this guy. And let's just say we don't take Leinart and neither do the Titans, there is NO WAY the jets and raiders both pass on him. This article cracks me up.

Hey Timay, I know that they just like to get crap started but I thought it was kinda interesting with Mortensen's comment of late.

RE: Interesting story on Leinart!

Mortensen is an idiot. Leinart has proven for the last three seasons that he's the best QB in this draft. And another point, if Leinart hadn't gone back to school for his senior season, he would have been hands down the #1 selection in last year's draft. The QB pool in this year's draft is sooooooo much stronger than last year's.

LoL well Mort is definitely not an idiot. I think he's proven that he is very reliable as far as scoops in the NFL go. You just hated what he had to say about Cutler.

Leinart's stock will be up again once the combine starts. And everyone's worries will be alleviated. The Saints will still pick Matt Leinart. Why am i the only calm one about this....lol

RE: Interesting story on Leinart!

His Stock has fallen since he didn't win the Rose Bowl... he showed he can't win game alone.

RE: Interesting story on Leinart!

Hey, where have we heard the "Let's wait until the combine and individual workouts to get a clearer picture" concept before?

Well it won't matter. You can't win games by yourself in the NFL anyway. Vince Young doesn't have the running ability that a Michael Vick has, and would be snapped in half if he tried to run like he did in college against an NFL defense where even the D-linemen have speed. I think it's been well estabilshed that you need to have great pocket passing skills to succeed in the NFL. He needs to develop more as a pocket passer, and Leinart's already there.

OK true. I'll concede this one. But although he's not an idiot, his stance on Cutler is absolutely idiotic.

Last time I checked, nobody in the history of the game of football has EVER won a football game ALONE. Nice try though. You think VY would have had the chance to even win the game if the UT defense hadn't stopped USC on a 4th and 1 run by LenDale White? No. Woulda been ballgame USC. Besides Euph, we've been over this a million times. Leinart had a damn good game too, 29-40 for 365 yards and a touchdown? Did Matt Leinart sexually assault your mom or something? Your girlfriend/wife, maybe? Why do you hate this guy so much?
