ESPN erroneously reported during his Monday Night Football telecast that the Birds were going to replace Kurt Warner at quarterback with Matt Leinart. Turns out that it is not true. Dennis Green might have thought about it (as is natural in team sports), but that didn't stop ESPN, trying to remain relevent in the change climate of sports reporting, from running with the conjecture. (And they acuse other blogs of being irresponsible.)
Funny thing though, it turns out that the Cardinals are goign to go with Warner as their starting quarterback on Saturday.
So how does ESPN report the news: “Cards Change Mind.” Really? Outside of the fabrication of Chris Mortensen, when exactly did the Cardinals change their mind? The Cardinals never announced they would start Leinart, despite the misconceptions set forth by the World Wide Leader. Maybe the headline should read, “ESPN Tries To Cover Its Butt.” Shameful, but not surprising seeing that the same network broadcast a complete fabrication of the path to 9/11.
