Ryan Lindsey named starting quarterback of the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians on Thursday decided to make a change at quarterback. On Monday Arians named rookie Logan Thomas as his starting quarterback for the Cardinals week 17 football game versus the San Francisco 49ers.
Arians said Thomas would get the chance to start the football game versus the 49ers if he was able to show him he could lead the team during the practice session this week. It is evident that Thomas did not impress his coach during the practice sessions.
Arians decided to make a change in the quarterback position on Monday when Lindley's performance versus the Seattle Seahawks was not good enough to keep him as the starting quarterback for the 49ers game since the Seahawks beat the Cardinals 35-6 in Glendale Arizona.
The Seahawks who are the defending Super Bowl champions are now tied with the Cardinals for first place in the National Football Conference Western Division with identical records of 11-4 with the win over the Cardinals last Sunday.
If the Seahawks and Cardinals end in a tie for first place in the National Football Conference Western division the Seahawks will win the division since they lost twice to the Seahawks during the 2014 football season.
The Seahawks will be hosting the St Louis Rams (6-9) next Sunday afternoon. The team that does not win the division title will be hosting the Wild Card Game versus the winner of the Carolina Panthers (6-8-1) versus the Atlanta Falcons (6-9) in the week of January 2015.
The Cardinals are hoping that quarterback Drew Stanton who has a sprained knee injury he suffered two weeks ago in the Cardinals win over the St Louis Rams on Thursday night will be ready to play football for the playoff games.
If Stanton is able to play next Sunday versus the 49ers then Arians will name Stanton as his starting quarterback since Stanton is the best option that the Cardinals will have to lead the Cardinals to beat the 49ers.
Stanton became the Cardinals starting quarterback when Carson Palmer's knee injury earlier this season sent him to the injured reserved list for the remainder of the 2014 football season.
