A night after Matt Leinart tossed 3 intereceptions in Arizona’s exhibition victory over Oakland, Sir Mort reports the Cardinals have named Kurt Warner their starting quarterback.  I’m hardly a religious sort but after considering the respective career trajectories of Warner and the former Heisman winner he’s displaced, I might have to seriously look into mass adoption and/or marrying Cloris Leachman.

After losing DE Osi Umenyiora to a torn lateral meniscus last night, Big Blue’s Col. Coughlin admits to the Daily News’ Ralph Vacchiano that lobbying for Michael Strahan’s return has crossed his mind.  Much as I’d love to see any number of local ad campaigns featuring Strahan alongside a diving Brett Favre, there’s other retired players with excellent credentials that might fit within Jerry Reese’s budget.  Andy Robustelli, for instance.
