Countdown to camps: Questions linger over quarterbacks in the NFC West.

Arizona, San Francisco, Seattle and St. Louis face uncertainty with Matt Leinart, Alex Smith, Matt Hasselbeck and Sam Bradford, respectively.

Whether it's Matt Leinart in Arizona, Alex Smith in San Francisco, Matt Hasselbeck in Seattle or Sam Bradford in St. Louis, uncertainty abounds. Hasselbeck is the most experienced of the bunch and got the Seahawks to the Super Bowl in the 2005 season, but his health is an issue; he was sidelined for 11 games the last two seasons. The Seahawks were unsure enough to trade a second-round pick for San Diego third-stringer Charlie Whitehurst. Smith, the No. 1 pick in 2005, will get another chance to show that he's worthy of the job. This will be the first time in his pro career that he'll have the same offensive coordinators in consecutive seasons. The 49ers haven't had that since 2003. Leinart steps into the all-but-unfillable shoes of Kurt Warner and will quarterback an offense that's intended to be more balanced than the pass-first scheme of recent years. And then there's Bradford, the No. 1 pick this year, who left Oklahoma after a junior season in which, because of shoulder injuries, he played only three games. The Rams are coming off a 1-15 season in which they scored a league-low 175 points
