The Cardinals didn't gain a first down in Matt Leinart's three possessions Monday night against Tennessee. Leinart didn't have much time to throw because of poor protection and the Titans' blitzes.
But he also missed badly on a deep pass to receiver Stephen Williams, who had a step on a defender.
Leinart apparently is getting a reputation for checking off to other options if someone isn't open immediately downfield.
At one point in the practice, a Titans cornerback watched Leinart come to scrimmage and said to teammates on the sideline, "I got a buffalo nickel that says he checks down."
The Cardinals had a running play called, but the comment is a hint about what others in the NFL might be thinking of Leinart.
