    TEMPE, Ariz. (Sept. 26, 2006) -- Kurt Warner will remain the starting quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals, coach Dennis Green said.

    Green's comment came in a statement released by the team following an ESPN report that Green decided that rookie Matt Leinart would replace Warner as starter for Arizona's game at Atlanta.

    "Generally talking about the starting lineup is not something we do," Green said. "However, given the speculation that was out there we want to make it clear. We're disappointed after last week, but we still expect to be a playoff football team and we fully expect Kurt Warner to be the quarterback that leads us. That has not changed."

    Warner threw three interceptions, two of them with Arizona inside the opponent's 14-yard line, and fumbled a snap at the St. Louis 18 with 1:46 to go in the Cardinals' 16-14 home loss to the Rams.

    At his regular Monday news conference, Green declined to confirm Warner would remain as a starter.

    Don't get me wrong, i like Kurt. The only problem is that if there is a better player for the job (which there is) he should be the back up!

    I couldn't agree more with you. Kurt Warner was good like 3-4 years ago and is prime as definitly pass. Plus I think Matt Leinhart could build a very good chemistry with those young studs receivers called Boldin and Fitzgerald. Another bad game by Warner and Denis Green should give Leinhart a chance to start and show him what he's got.

    Warners still is one of the most accurate and precison passers int he league. I would wait a few more games before he gets the yank. Lienhart can't do much better with that offensive line.

    Warner's time as a starter is limited. 1 more bad week,and we will see Leinart next week.

    That is true, but his accuracy isn't going to help him throw a 60 yard hail mary. Trust me, he's going to be gone by the end of the year; on permanent bench for next probably.

    He might be one of the accurate passers in the league but when you fumble the ball eight times and can't get more touchdowns with those receivers there's a problem. Like The Abyss said and I said earlier one more bad week and will see Leinhart start the week after.
