Quarterback Derek Anderson just was on his conference call with the media and, asked about the depth chart, Anderson said it was “understood” he was coming in as the No. 2 quarterback but that he would compete, that he will “push Matt.” Coach Ken Whisenhunt will speak in a bit and I am guessing he will say the same sorts of things, which just underscores my belief — it’s Leinart’s job to lose.
UPDATE: Here was the most telling quote of all from Whisenhunt: “Matt has earned the right to be ‘The Guy.’ ”
Anderson did say he was looking forward to a fresh start after leaving Cleveland. No surprise there. He acknowledged the last two years hadn’t been good for either himself or his team. “I’m excited about a new opportunity.”
