Kubiak Pleased with Leinart, Orlovsky’s Still #2

John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reported that Texans head coach Gary Kubiak is pleased with his new quarterback, Matt Leinart.  Kubiak also told McClain that Dan Orlovsky is still serving as the back up quarterback, but the Texans are going to “coach the heck” out of Leinart.

“When I talked to Matt on the phone, I was so impressed with him,” Kubiak said. “He wants to be here. He said, ‘Coach, they (Cardinals) are starting over, and I need a new start, too.’

“He didn’t make excuses for what happened there. There was no bull to him. I like that.”

Leinart, 27, comes to the Texans as the third quarterback behind Matt Schaub and Dan Orlovsky.

“We’re fortunate to get a player like Matt,” Kubiak said. “I like him a lot. This is a positive move for our organization. Matt fits what we do.

“We’re going to coach the heck out of him. Dan’s still No. 2, but Matt’s going to battle him for that job. Sometimes, a player needs a change of scenery, and when he gets it, it can do him some good.”
