My Mistake, Well Actually, It’s Mort’s

A couple days ago, I published a post saying Kurt Warner has taken over the starting QB job in Arizona, which was according to Chris Mortensen of ESPN. Well, it turns out Mort was wrong. It seems like sometimes he just makes up scoops from out of the clear blue sky.

Consider:

– Matt Leinart plays horribly Saturday night in what all coaches regard as the most important preseason game. He had been neck and neck with Kurt Warner up to this point. So it would seem that Warner’s going to win the job.

– The next day, Mort reports that he has a “source” that told him Warner will be named the starter.

– A beat writer for the Arizona Cardinals acknowledges Mort’s scoop and keeps digging … only to find nothing concrete.

Now this

:”I haven’t read the paper today or seen the Internet,” (Head Coach Ken) Whisenhunt said. “Do we have a quarterback? … It seems like Chris Mortensen is making the decision on our quarterback for our football team. … But nothing has changed.”

Also contained in the above article was that no decision on the starting QB in the desert has been made, and that Leinart’s pathetic display Saturday night would not be a huge portion of the ultimate decision.
