Default Cardinals to keep alternating QBs

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt knows starting quarterback Matt Leinart is unhappy splitting time with Kurt Warner.

Whisenhunt also knows his two-quarterback scheme has helped the Cardinals (2-2) match their best start in 20 mostly dismal seasons in Arizona. And that's why he has no thoughts of changing the game plan, which calls for Warner to come off the bench occasionally and lead a no-huddle attack.

"I think we have two guys that are unique in that we have two unselfish guys that have a very good relationship," Whisenhunt said on Monday. "I also feel like we have, in a backup quarterback a former MVP, former Super Bowl winner that is a good football player, and he's shown that he can do that." Questions about the quarterbacks dominated Whisenhunt's weekly Monday news conference, even though the Cardinals were coming off their most notable victory in recent memory, a physical 21-14 win over previously unbeaten Pittsburgh in Glendale.


The Cardinals are 2-2 for only the sixth time since they moved to Arizona in 1988. They visit winless St. Louis this week.
Many of the questions have arisen because Leinart has made no secret of his displeasure with the scheme.
"I'd be lying if I said I was happy with the way things are going," Leinart said Monday. "But at the same time, it's pushing me to become a better football player."
Leinart said he's "been real supportive of the situation." But he added, "I want to play. I want be the starting quarterback. I want to play every single play." Leinart, the Cardinals' first round pick in 2006, went the distance in the first two games, throwing two touchdown passes and three interceptions as Arizona lost to San Francisco and defeated Seattle.

sounds like leinart will be sharing time for awhile..

This 2 QB thing might work for now but I tend to think at one point it is going to split the team apart. Landry tried this early on before finally handing the ball to Staubach for good. I give it 2 or 3 weeks before it really gets to guys.

I agree - at some point, Whiz will have to make a decision on who the starter is and who the backup is.

Just think that could have been our coach. What if he would have done that with Ben and Charlie.
I agree it will need to settled at some point in time for them, maybe by injury.

Steve Spurrier, when he coached the Gators is the only person I've ever seen pull this off for any length of time. This is the NFL and will not work for long.

Anyone else old enough to remember when Tom Landry sent in the plays for Dallas one year by alternating Staubach and Craig Morton on each offensive play?

i personaly didn't find the " 2 headed monster " to be that threatening. i think it keeps the QB'S from getting warmed up, and getting into a rythme.....

Passing CP/AT YDS TD INT
K. Warner 14/21 132 1 0
M. Leinart 7/14 93 0 0
