Will Anderson Give Leinart Headaches in 2010?

It’s definitely too soon to answer the question posed by this article’s title, but below is a comparison of the two quarterbacks’ stats.

While there is no clear starter, two things are certain.  First, Leinart is the clear favorite going into summer camp.  Second, there will be an open competition because Ken Whisenhunt has consistently stated that Leinart must win his starting job.  This position battle will certainly be the main event this summer at camp.

So before all the speculation and opinions fly, just the facts, Ma’am.
