Deep Posts: Matt Leinart gets snippy about his demotion

Matt Leinart's(notes) a little unhappy about being demoted to Arizona Cardinals preseason second-stringer, behind Derek Anderson(notes). And that's a good thing -- you'd want your quarterback to be upset about something like that. What's odd, though, is that Leinart seemed to lob a vague accusation that Ken Whisenhunt made the decisions because of some off-the-field issue, as opposed to on-field performance. Hmmmm.

• ... and Kurt Warner(notes) will DANCE!

• Madden NFL 11 has launched some damn new thing on Facebook. I dunno.

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Sidney Rice(notes) has been placed on the PUP list, which means he'll miss at least the first six weeks of the season. Also, I think every player placed on the PUP list should get a free puppy. They need to be cheered up, and the name's already a place. I say this is the most pressing issue facing commissioner Roger Goodell.

• That Neil Rackers(notes) vs. Kris Brown(notes) kicking battle in Houston is coming down to the wire. I'm on Team Rackers.

• Remember when I mentioned that things weren't going well for Derrick Ward(notes)? Yeah. They didn't get better.

Shaun Rogers(notes) of the Cleveland Browns got some good news, though. He won't be suspended for that whole "bringing a loaded gun onto an airplane" thing. He just gets fined.
