I once was paid to write about sports for a living. Now I just do it for free on SB Nation Arizona and Twitter... unless someone wants to help me take my talents somewhere other than the unemployment line.

Since I was a kid growing up in Phoenix I wanted to be a professional sports writer/radio host. Now as a 26 year old married man, I get to keep dreaming about it.

I've been a Phoenix Sports fan since the late '80s and have suffered through the lean years of the Arizona Cardinals, the Paxson three pointer, continuous first round losses by the Coyotes and Santonio Holmes' second foot never coming down (yes, I'm bitter). I also went to the University of Arizona during the John Mackovic years so I know a thing or two about losing.

When I'm not butchering the English language and attempting to compile humorous one line jokes about Phoenix sports, I'm sleeping or arguing with the 40 bobble heads in my office.

Think of me like SB Nation Arizona's Buddy Ryan or Dennis Green; I talk a good game. Just be happy we don't have a football team I have to coach.

Report: Arizona Cardinals Have Given Matt Leinart Permission To Seek Trade

15

Not that this comes as a real surprise but, according to the Sports Xchange, the Cardinals have granted Matt Leinart and his agent the right to seek a trade. The thing I find most interesting about it is that the team still plans on playing Leinart even though he's looking for a new home. It's like hooking up with your ex right before you break up, it's potentially risky and someone is bound to get hurt physically or emotionally. You have to wonder how Matt feels about that and if you'll be able to see it in his play tonight. That and it's a big risk for the team when it comes to a possible injury. Update: "Could Leinart end up w/ @SF_49ers or Seattle @Seahawks? @MikeJurecki reports they have shown interest, Cards won't trade him in NFC West. — @XTRA910 via Twitter" Trading in the division at first glance seems like a poor plan, but if the return were a veteran QB it wouldn't be a bad deal at all. David Carr of the 49ers and Charlie Whitehurst of the Seahawks were two QBs the Cards had their eyes on before.

Bill Simmons Thinks Cardinals Quarterbacks Are League's Worst

13

"32. Matt Leinart/Derek Anderson, Cardinals Living proof that the quarterback position matters: The dropoff from Kurt Warner to Leinart/Anderson will singlehandedly doom this Cardinals season. One position out of 22 ... and they're hopeless. Will we ever figure out why Leinart didn't make it? I keep going back to that "Punk'd" episode in 2006 when they pretended to arrest Leinart and his buddy for soliciting a prostitute, then a panicked Leinart convinced his buddy to take the rap for him before a giggling Ashton Kutcher jumped out of a van. That's a leader? Would Brees or Brady have ever done that? We should have written him off then and there."

ESPN's "Experts" Give The Arizona Cardinals No Respect

7

It looks like the Arizona Cardinals will be able to play the role of the NFL's Rodney Dangerfield once again in 2010. The two time defending NFC West champs are getting no respect from all 16 NFL experts ESPN asked to preview the upcoming NFL season. Every last one picked the San Francisco 49ers. The Cards truly get no respect, no respec.

Matt Leinart to the New York Giants?

12

Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio is reporting that the Arizona Cardinals locker room is "buzzing" about a rumor that Matt Leinart will be dealt to the Giants. Not 100% sure whether to believe it or not but it's a "rumor running rampant at the team's facility" according to Florio. UPDATE: Jay Glazer Tweeted that the Giants have no interest in Leinart since he doesn't want to be a back up. Which pretty much disproves the poorly written rumor by PFT's Florio. Maybe can go back to saying the Cardinals want JaMarcus Russel and Marc Bulger.
