Cardinals name Anderson starter … for Thursday

Need a little more evidence that the Arizona Cardinals have already made the decision to name Derek Anderson the starting quarterback?

Well, he will be under center with the first team offense on Thursday night when the Cardinals play the Washington Redskins in the preseason finale.

Anderson was moved ahead of Matt Leinart last week and following the Cardinals’ game at Chicago last Saturday, it was more evident that Anderson will be the man. Coach Ken Whisenhunt announced on Scott Van Pelt’s radio show for ESPN that Anderson would start against the Redskins.

The next announcement, whenever it is made, will be that Anderson will be starting Sept. 12. Just wait.
