From news services Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt knows starting quarterback Matt Leinart is unhappy splitting time with Kurt Warner. Whisenhunt also knows his two-quarterback scheme has helped the Cardinals (2-2) match their best start in 20 mostly dismal seasons in Arizona. And that’s why he has no thoughts of changing the game plan, which calls for Warner to come off the bench occasionally and lead a no-huddle attack. “I think we have two guys that are unique in that we have two unselfish guys that have a very good relationship,” Whisenhunt said on Monday. “I also feel like we have, in a backup quarterback, a former MVP, former Super Bowl winner who is a good football player, and he’s shown that he can do that.” Questions about the quarterbacks dominated Whisenhunt’s Monday news conference, even though the Cardinals were coming off their most notable win in recent memory, a physical 21-14 win over previously unbeaten Pittsburgh in Glendale, Ariz. The Cardinals are 2-2 for only the sixth time since they moved to Arizona in 1988. They visit winless St. Louis this week. Many of the questions have arisen because Leinart has made no secret of his displeasure with the scheme. “I’d be lying if I said I was happy with the way things are going,” Leinart said Monday. “But at the same time, it’s pushing me to become a better football player.” Leinart said he’s “been real supportive of the situation.” But he added, “I want to play. I want be the starting quarterback. I want to play every single play.” Chargers reeling Shocked by their 1-3 start, the San Diego Chargers are thankful the AFC West is so mediocre. If they were in any other division, they might be in trouble. “We’re not playing well,” General Manager A.J. Smith said a day after the Chargers let the Kansas City Chiefs score 24 straight points in the second half to take a 30-16 win at Qualcomm Stadium. “We’ve had very inconsistent play. As a matter of fact, we’re playing in spurts, and that usually means disaster. “We need to come out of this. We need to make a move quickly. I mean, the only good thing I see out of this is that I think we’re fortunate. When I look at the division, and we’re looking up, there are three teams that are 2-2. We’re fortunate that somebody in our division did not pull out of the gate 4-0 or 3-1.” Every other division is led by a team that’s either undefeated or has only one loss. The Chargers have lost three straight games for the first time since 2003, when they were an NFL-worst 4-12. Even the fans piled on Sunday. When they got tired of booing quarterback Philip Rivers, they started chanting “MAR-TY! MAR-TY! MAR-TY!” That was in reference to Marty Schottenheimer, who was fired as coach in February in large part because of his icy relationship with Smith. He was replaced by Norv Turner. Smith heard the chants. He didn’t think much of them. Inside information Maybe they could blame this loss on insider information. Not many in the NFL know more about the Pittsburgh Steelers, or their offense, than Arizona coach Whisenhunt and assistant head coach Russ Grimm. While Bruce Arians now is the offensive coordinator, Whisenhunt and Grimm have considerable knowledge of Pittsburgh’s system after spending six seasons in it. That background was evident as the Steelers offense, good enough to allow them to win each of their first three games by at least a three-TD margin, shut down for long stretches of an unexpected 21-14 loss Sunday, Pittsburgh’s first defeat under Mike Tomlin. Tomlin, of course, is the man who beat out Whisenhunt and Grimm for his job. “I think Coach Whis knew some of the weak points of our offense,” said wide receiver Santonio Holmes, whose two TD catches meant he wasn’t one of those deficiencies. Ravens in the red The Ravens have lost two games this season because of their failure to score touchdowns after they get inside the 20-yard line. Baltimore gained plenty of yardage, held on to the football for nine more minutes and got inside the 20 on four different occasions at Cleveland. Yet the Ravens scored only one TD in a 27-13 loss. “From the 20 to the 20, we’re the best team in football,” quarterback Steve McNair said. Bucs hit hard by injuries Coach Jon Gruden cringed at the thought of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers playing the rest of the season without running back Carnell “Cadillac” Williams and tackle Luke Petitgout. “You lose a lot of skill,” Gruden said after revealing both players will undergo season-ending knee surgery this week. “Watching Philadelphia yesterday play without their left tackle and without their running back, it’s not an easy thing to overcome.” Bears offense staggering Different quarterback, same result. The Chicago Bears hoped Brian Griese would spark their offense. Instead, he was no better than Rex Grossman. Griese’s performance in Sunday’s 37-27 loss at Detroit probably raised as many questions as it answered, but Coach Lovie Smith clarified a few issues. “Brian is our quarterback, yes,” he said, when asked who would start. Smith was emphatic about something else. He won’t seek an offensive consultant’s help. “No, absolutely not. Next question,” he said. Delhomme status unclear Carolina Panthers quarterback Jake Delhomme hopes a rigorous rehabilitation program will allow him to avoid season-ending surgery on his strained right elbow. A week after it was announced Delhomme would not need surgery, Delhomme acknowledged an operation is possible. “Maybe that could happen down the line. I don’t know, and that’s the God’s honest truth,” Delhomme said. “We don’t know yet. To say it’s a possibility, yes, it’s possible. But it’s not in my mind right now. That’s where we’re at.” Linebacker Dan Morgan revealed for the first time that he has a partially torn Achilles’ tendon and is out indefinitely. Sack party still going Pro Bowl middle linebacker Antonio Pierce was only half kidding, saying the New York Giants could have had 20 sacks against the Philadelphia Eagles. Osi Umenyiora set a team record with six sacks and the Giants tied an NFL record by taking down Donovan McNabb 12 times Sunday night in a 16-3 win over the Eagles. “Phenomenal,” said seven-time Pro Bowl defensive end Michael Strahan, who got one sack to break Lawrence Taylor’s franchise record. “We couldn’t have asked for a better performance.” Around the league 49ers: Quarterback Alex Smith will miss San Francisco’s game against Baltimore, but won’t need surgery on his separated right shoulder. Coach Mike Nolan said the 49ers won’t set a target return date for Smith until Thursday, when the swelling subsides in his shoulder. Bears: Chicago terminated Obafemi Ayanbadejo’s contract, cutting ties with the fullback who had just completed a four-game suspension for violating the league’s policy on anabolic steroids and related substances. Redskins: Keenan McCardell signed with Washington, adding depth to a team with only one healthy wideout who has caught a pass this year. McCardell has 861 career catches with Cleveland, Jacksonville, Tampa Bay and San Diego. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
