Smile Who starts next season at qb?

So, all the best to Kurt and he leaves with our thanks for the best times Cards have seen.

But who to fill his boots, most think Leinart so we'll take that as a given so let's think a bit further afield...

My fantasy choice would be another qb who may not be everyone's choice but who would get the best from the offense that's already there and lead the team,

Carson P at the Bengals...if not then Young from the Titans (who'd thought that a year ago)...Brees...Rivers...


My other thoughts will be more realistic (only slightly),

Orton (not likely), Vick (no chance), Pennington, Delhomme, Jackson....

What do you all think?

I think my choice was mentioned in another thread but I would really like for us to bring Chad Pennington in.
He really impressed me at Miami and I think he proved his up side out wieghs his questionable arm strength.

But I hope whoever we bring in Matt beats them into 2nd string we need him to lead us now, and I think with an offence built round his skill set and not Kurts he will be just fine.

No matter who its both scary and exciting

I dont like Pennington at all, in fact the very thought of him in Cardinal red has spoiled my morning

I'm not sure Pennington would be my choice but I don't think it's a bad shout. Not really sure where else you could go as there aren't exactly a range of super qb's around.

What about Vick, how hard would they try to hold on if we came calling? He is not to everyone's taste with his past as it is, but he showed the ability to deliver big plays and has the mobility to work well even behind a questionable off. line. Different to Warner but has the talent that could make him a star again in the right team.

I hate the thought of Vick.
Vick is the kind of QB you have to build a special offense about to take advantage of his running, he has never been a good passer and with the weapons we have I think he would be a very backward step.
Atlantas WRs didn't start to shine until Vick went and they moved their offense to a more 'conventional' style with the aquasition of Ryan and Turner.

Pennington would thrive with our wide outs on tap and our emerging running game. Don't forget the big play wasn't there for us mostly this year but we still proved we could pile on the points, so Chads arm wouldn't be a factor but his accuracy would make him great... If Matt didn't work out for us Chad would be just fine IMO.

If we got Vick (and I don't think there is any chance of it) the offense would be all about him. It would be a waste of Fitz and company and a step back in the developement of the running game

Agree with you about his time at the Falcons, but he seemed to be different in his performances with the Eagles. He was throwing more passes but still had enough to move around behind the line or beyond.

If not Vick, Kolb at the Eagles is a little bit of a forgotten man, not for a starter but as a back up to Leinart? Kolb has a good arm and is conventional but pretty talented with it. Oddly McNabb is the only one of the three I wouldn't like, everything he throws is short and I don't think that would suit us either.

What's wrong with Leinart?

He should at least be given a proper chance as a starter.

Barring injury Matt will start.Good luck to him.It is his team now.
We need to remember he is no Warner... so we wont have such a prolific aerial attack , but then we have a much better running game now which Kurt never really had except for the latter half of his year.

Hopefully Patrick can step up too to be a good catching TE, then Matt will have enough weapons.

As backup, I am on the Pennington bandwagon. Think he would be great, especialy at closing down games when we are a couple of scores ahead

I definitely dont want Vick, not keen on Campbell.

I would like us to get Chad, or similar FA vet QB , and draft a 3rd or 4th rounder maybe. No point getting a Tebow in as we need to go OT or Defense 1st round.

Hi All,

I would give Matt his chance barring recruiting a superstar and I started this thread by saying that Leinart would almost certainly get his shot and that was almost a given, so was just trying to see who anyone else thought might be in the frame and get some names....

Not much love for Vick, I'm not too against the idea myself but would love more of a 'fit' into our existing style of play so point taken that Vick simply isn't that. I definately wouldn't want Campbell either, I've never seen him throw over 10 yards and he seems so nervous and subdued on the field! But Pennington I'm warming to, as a number 2 to Leinart or even a starter would be no bad thing. He's the pick of the vets and seems to have more about him that Delhomme who must also be short of confidence after the season he's had.

Orton could be available from the Broncos so thought I'd throw him in but he's not really any better than Matt so it wouldn't be worth trading for anything substantial.

Let's hope the Cards mgt read this thread and grant a few wishes.

If we don't start Matt I, for one, will be pretty annoyed. We used a first round pick on this guy and he needs his chance. I think he'll be a much better player for us once we change our system to suit his playing style. He had a 66% completion percentage when he did play this year - not bad considering he wasn't getting the reps in practice.

The Cardinals will never sign a guy like Michael Vick (thank goodness); they are high on players with good character, and I can't imagine Bill (or Michael) Bidwill allowing Graves to bring a guy like him to the club.

We need to ditch St. Pierre and sign a vet as a back up, and get a QB in the draft with a mid round pick.
