Leinart vs Kolb

PREFACE: I know Leinart is gone and is not comming back. I urge you to read the following.

I understand Leinart was a polarizing figure in AZ. To be honest, if I was a 25 year old franchise QB living close to ASU and Scottsdale, Id be in the hot tub with fine women EVERY NIGHT......DURING THE OFFSEASON. Which is when the pics were taken. Any straight red blooded American male who tells you different is full of it.

As a Phoenician I hated Leinart and USC. But after he became a Redbird, I became a fan. Same as with Deuce Lutui. But I digress. For all you clamoring for Kolb, I put together a comparison of Leinarts and Kolbs stats in their first 7 starts( which is how many games I believe Kolb has started).

 

                     Comp             Att             Comp%         Yds             Td/Int

Leinart:        143               262                55%          1699              7/8

Kolb:            115               189                61%           1197             7/7

 

Seems pretty even to me. Kolb had a better %, Leinart had more yards. Td/Int about even. Kolb seems to be in the same boat as Leinart where fans either want him badly or dont want to touch him with a 10 foot pole. In my opinion, Leinart earned the chance to start this season and show all of us whether he was going to be a stud or a bust. Ill take Kolb, but after watching a season of Anderson Ill take anyone. Im like the loser the night before the prom. Ill take anyone because anyone is better than no one. In Whiz I still trust, but only for one more year.
