Leinart gets — and gives — the message

Cardinals quarterback Matt Leinart sent a text message to coach Ken Whisenhunt after the team added veteran Derek Anderson to compete for the starting job.



<!–END INLINE MUG–>Leinart wasn’t complaining.

“He is fired up about where he is and about getting in here in the offseason program and working with the guys,” Whisenhunt told reporters in Arizona.

Leinart seems to have the right attitude. Or at least he isn’t demonstrating the wrong one. Leinart also responded favorably when Whisenhunt offered only a conditional endorsement earlier in the offseason, even though the retiring Kurt Warner was the only other quarterback on their roster.

“That indicated to me that Matt was in a good place with it and today was another example of that,” Whisenhunt said. “I don’t know necessarily that it was a function of any announcements about us reaching an agreement with Derek as much as it was just Matt staying in communication. That is what we want from our players and I was excited to see that.”
