Cardinals have had "no recent discussions" with Marc Bulger

Marc Bulger looms over the Cardinals quarterback depth chart like a dark cloud.  It’s reasonable to wonder if Bulger is also symbolically lodged somewhere in Matt Leinart’s cranium.

Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic makes the compelling case on that the Cardinals’ best move is to support Leinart unequivocally.  If he screws up, then move on.

Bulger is hardly a safe bet.  He saw the pass rush too much after taking too many sacks in St. Louis, but Arizona won’t close the door on him joining the team.  They say they have no interest in Bulger “at this time” and haven’t spoken to him recently. 

That’s no surprise.  If a move happened, it’s now going to come after the minicamp/OTA season.

Leinart is certainly the safest bet on the roster because he knows the system.  Derek Anderson has been “impressive and erratic” during offseason workouts, which defines his career.

Only Ken Whisenhunt knows what Leinart must do to officially be The Man.  Until training camp starts or Bulger signs elsewhere, Leinart will just have to wait, work, and hope.

    The last discussions Cards had with Bulger were in 1987.

    Had Bulger been available before Anderson we would have signed him…but now it’s too late.
    Cards are set at qb
    Starter – Leinart
    Backup Vet – Anderson
    training Rook – Skelton
    It’s exactly like Whis likes it.

    ” Until training camp starts or Bulger signs elsewhere, Leinart will just have to wait, work, and hope.”
    That could well be the whole point of holding Bulger over his head without signing him. Make Leinart work very hard and possibly live up to his potential, whereas signing Bulger now could have the opposite effect.

    The Cards have also had “no recent discussions” with me. Though I would like to announce that I’m willing to listen to any offers.

    The fact that the Cards have been FAR, FAR from positive about Matt all off-season says all we need to know about how they feel about him….they are nervous
