Matt Leinart: celebrity backup quarterback

Anybody else tired of seeing this guy’s mug yet? (Ladies, don’t answer that.) I’ve seen Leinart, the Cardinals first-round draft pick who missed nearly all of training camp because of a contract holdout, on billboards around town advertising for a cable/phone company and he has a radio show, “The Matt Leinart Show,” which airs on ESPN 860 AM on Fridays.

I know he’s the quarterback of the future for the Cardinals, who paid him handsomely as the 10th pick in the draft. But, for a guy who’s holding a clipboard on the sideline (at least until Kurt Warner goes down), he’s certainly bringing a lot of Hollywood to the Valley. No doubt, he’s got to be the only backup quarterback in the NFL with a radio show named after him. Just imagine the star power he’ll carry once he actually becomes a starter. Frightening.
