Bills QB Matt Leinart Aiming For The Backup Job Vs The Lions
Preposterous as it might have once sounded, quarterback Matt Leinart finds himself suddenly having much in common with Jeff Tuel.
Upon arriving in Buffalo last weekend for what could be a last chance at resurrecting his career, the 2004 Heisman Trophy winner offered Tuel - an undrafted rookie out of Washington State - advice on how to prepare for the possibility of being the Bills' opening-day starter.
''With football, it's crazy,'' Leinart said. ''I told him, 'Hey, in this league, anything can happen. You always have to stay ready.'''
Leinart spoke from experience. It wasn't lost on the former Southern California star that he could have been referring to his own seven-year career that's gone from the promise of first-round-draft-pick potential, to spending nearly the entire offseason wondering if he still has an NFL future.
''Oh yeah, I've seen the worst in this league. And I've seen some pretty good highs,'' Leinart said. ''So I've been through a lot.''
If not for injuries sidelining the Bills' two top quarterbacks, rookie EJ Manuel (left knee) and veteran Kevin Kolb (concussion), Leinart might still have been waiting by the phone.
