Time to welcome Matt Leinart as the new quarterback of the Cardinals. At least for a couple of weeks.
Leinart will not be the starting quarterback for the Cardinals in 2010. Coach Ken Whisenhunt tried to get Brian St. Pierre the backup job, and St. Pierre’s claim to fame is that some dude tried to impersonate him to meet chicks a couple of years ago.
The Cardinals will either pick up a veteran signal caller (likely regardless) or they will turn to the draft at one of the quarterbacks who fall.
(Photo explanation: We were going to run those hot tub pics, but THN wants only to show chicks of legal age, so here are the Song Girls. Not that Leinart worked his way through these broads, because Leinart likes more Amazon type of girls.)
HERE ARE THN’s thoughts on the Pro Bowl:
FORMER FLORIDA QB Tim Tebow has made huge news this week. Not because of his dreadful performance during Senior Bowl practices. Rather because Tebow will appear in a controversial ad during the Super Bowl, supporting the ride-to-life crusade. And this is a smart move for Tebow, because this is about as close as he will come to ever being a factor in the Super Bowl.
But this being America, you cannot have an opposite view of somebody without a protest. And those people protesting Tebow’s ad are dead wrong. Well, there methods are wrong.
If somebody, in this economy, is willing to pay $2 million for a 30-second commercial, you let them. And when that commercial comes on, you ignore it, like I will be. Honestly people, if somebody has an opinion that you do not agree with, you have the right – as an American – to ignore it.
Or if you feel strongly about it, you can raise $2 million of your own money and offer a counter-commercial. But there are more pressing things to be spending money on.
Here is what is likely to happen. Groups will continue to protest the ad. CBS will eventually buckle and pull the ad. Tebow and his group will get more publicity than they deserve AND will get to save $2 million because the ad will not air.
Congratulations, you just go out-smarted by a bunch of people who think that the dinosaurs are extinct because they drowned after the Titanic crashed moving them to Europe.
AND FINALLY …
Higher ratings on Sunday, Celbitch vs. Lakers or the Pro Bowl?
