Does this signal the end of Matt Leinart in Arizona? (1 Viewer)

We all know that Kurt Warner had a great season in leading the Cardinals to the NFC West title, but he did struggle down the stretch and will be a free agent at the end of the season. Speculation by some was that the Cards would let Warner walk and give 1st round pick Matt Leinart another shot. With the Cards now headed for the Super Bowl, led by Warner, is there any chance they let him leave town? Assuming he gets a new deal, do they cut bait with Leinart or make him sit the bench another year or two?

For the dynasty owners out there, how much value does Leinart have left?

 
I think if they win the Super Bowl, Kurt will retire. So maybe this question won't even need to be asked and will answer itself.

 
Warner retires after the season is over.
I don't think God has told him what to do about it. I think the Cards hang onto Leinart, because Kurt has maybe one year left, and Leinart seems comfortable as the highest paid cheerleader in recorded history.

He told him to retire after the game when Boldin got knocked out, but then he decided he'd let him go to the Superbowl if he stayed

I actually can see this happening, too. He's no spring chicken, being 37, and the chances he and AZ return to the Super Bowl are very slim (it is for everyone). Why not leave on a high note (win or lose this year)?So does it signal the end for Leinart? The end of the beginning, yes. I think he takes over soon. If he fails miserably again, he's done. Otherwise, it's his team if he can prove it...
 
Just imagine, if a few years ago someone had told you Leinart might be wearing a Super Bowl ring in 2009, your perception of events would be massively skewed.

 
Warners wife likes two things besides Kurt..God and $$$$$. Warner will not retire, he will get a nice 2 year deal. The Cards owe that to Warner now.

Warner would be a fool to leave Fitz and Boldin.

I can't see Warner retiring win or lose. He's gonna get one heck of a signing bonus this offseason. Riding off into the sunset is a nice sentiment and all, but it's hard to turn down what might easily be 8 figure $$$.

 
Only way Warner retires is a Super Bowl. Even then, that isn't certain (My opinion is it's still unlikely given the situation and $$ he'll earn)

It will depend on the contract Warner signs whether Leinart will get a shot. 2 year pact has been the most talked about, but we're probably taking year-2-year in any case. I believe the big $$ in Leinart's contract kicks in for the 2011-12 season. A buddy of mine and I had this exact conversation after Warner was named starter going into the season.

I hope the game slows down for Matt because he's looked overwhelmed since Whiz has come aboard. Just looked like he really regressed & his poor habits [slow decision making, bad footwork and tendency to leave the pocket after his 1st read is covered) came to the forefront.

I never thought Aaron Rodgers would be where he is today, so IMO it's too early to say Leinart is/isnt the long term answer here. I think his play the last 2 seasons has put the final decision more in management's hands than his own.

Even if Warner retires what does it change .Leinart has'nt prooven he can play in the NFL.

He got many many chances to prove it , they gave all the chances and he could not get the job done.

 
$25M or so. The sum that should be coming to Warner for a 2-year deal (AZ or somewhere else).

I'm sure that Kurt will look at how much "good" can be accomplished with this amount of money and how many more lives he can touch from his perch as an elite NFL QB.

I say he continues on his journey and stays in the NFL for 2009
