Josh Levin of Slate argues that Matt Leinart will be a failure as an NFL quarterback. "Leinart looks more like Jason White or Danny Wuerffelâ€”a gutsy Heisman winner who doesn't have the physical ability to succeed when the guys on defense get bigger and faster." I respectfully disagree. Personally, I'll take pocket presence, decision-making skills, and the ability to thread a perfect fade pass on fourth-and-8 to save an undefeated season over a stronger arm and shifty scrambling.

What do you call a fifth-round rookie WR with real expectations? Tajae Sharpe, and there may not be another player like him in NFL history. Tennessee's poor history of developing wideouts has led to a rare opportunity that Sharpe can seize this season.
