At more than one point in the last 3-7 years I've wanted to be Matt Leinart. Getting chicks like crazy, wins ballgames, win trophies, and that dreamy smile. What more could you want? After watching USC trounce Virginia yesterday I realized something:
Matt Leinart is a loser.
This realization has probably been brewing up in my skull for quite some time, but it's official now. The progression goes something like this: If Mark Sanchez can lead a young USC team any schmuck can. Five minutes later my girlfriend goes, "Wait, was that Matt Leinart in House Bunny? For a second I was confused because he and Kurt Warner sort of look alike."
If you go to USC you are an NFL QB automatically. Carson Palmer, Todd Marinovich, John David Booty. Fuck even Matt Cassel and he didn't even start at the University of Spoiled Children!!! Some of them are actually good, most aren't. They key is that most of them are not complete douchebags, except Leinart.
The argument can be made that Leinart has talent equal to Carson Palmer. Either way, they are on two of the five most talented offensive teams in the NFL. Palmer's had success, Leinart can't even keep his job. He loses it every year. He seriously looks like he's been spending too much time at the ASU sorority houses.
NEWSFLASH MATT: YOU DON'T SHARE A STADIUM WITH THE SUNDEVILS ANYMORE. YOUR STADIUM IS ON THE OTHER FUCKING SIDE OF TOWN. YOU HAVE NO REASON TO BE IN TEMPE BONING 18 YEAR OLDS.
And oh by the way, he does sort of look like Kurt Warner....or his son.
