Matt Leinart

FIRES BACK AT DEAN CAIN

'Stick to Being D List'

Matt Leinart isn't taking too kindly to being dissed by Dean Cain -- and now the former NFL quarterback is firing back at the "Superman" actor ... telling the guy to "stick to being D list."

Leinart is clearly pissed about the comments Cain made to TMZ Sports ... in which he said Johnny Manziel should be careful about running with the Hollywood crowd because he wouldn't want to end up out of the NFL like Matt Leinart. 

072314_dean_cain_launch_v2Now, Leinart has gone to Twitter to respond to Cain -- and it's clear he's pissed -- saying, "Put 7 years in, pretty sure that's 7 more than 99% of the world."

Then came the personal shots at Dean -- a former football player who was cut by the Buffalo Bills in training camp after suffering a knee injury. 

"Some people should stick to their day job because they couldn't cut it!" 

He added, "Stick to being D list!"

Lol although Matt sounds a little bitter, he's right. Anybody who can play QB in the NFL for 7 years should be proud of that, although the "more than 99% of the world" comment isn't fair. It's not like 99% of the world TRIES to make it to the NFL. Anyway, I don't see Dean Cain in ANYTHING anymore. He shouldn't of opened his mouth. I did used to love Lois & Clark as a kid though!! Lol

Leinart is right... I don't care if you are 2nd string or practice squad!!! If you can hold a qb spot for 7 years in the league you must be a bad mofo!!!

Dean Cain is a male whore. He got into trouble screwing a director's wife.That is why he went from Superman to lifetime movies.
