    Amazing. It's not ALL him, but he's the circus leader of a team that continues to improve. They are a team on the rise, not a team on the decline fighting it. But, wow. The Arizona Cardinals in the superbowl? Hahaha. . .

    Warner would've gotten pummeled into retirement if he played for the Rams the past couple seasons. I'm glad he found a better opportunity in Arizona and I'll be rooting for him in the Super Bowl.

    Yeah, it's almost surreal to have the Arizona Cardinals in the Super Bowl isn't it. Kurt got a lot of help from Larry Fitzgerald this year, but things really began to change for the Cardinals when Leinart went down last year and Warner came in and started working that old magic. Great story that couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.

    Agreed. The reason Kurt has been able to reach the level of success he's experiencing right now, at least in my opinion, is because of the journey he's been through. A journey that included leaving the Rams and regrouping as a back-up for a few years on other teams.

    I sincerely doubt he reinvigorates his career had he stayed in St. Louis this entire time, but I'm definitely happy to see him back on top with another chance at a Super Bowl ring.

    Nick: you usually post good stuff but this is utter nonsense. You're saying that Kurt is only doing well now because he was back-up for a few years.... doesn't make any sense at all. Not only would his spell on the sidelines have affected his confidence but it would have led to rustiness.

    Did you listen to NFLN's pre-game coverage today? Specifically the Warner interview with Marshall Faulk?

    Warner said that he didn't feel like he really appreciated his post-season successes when he was on the Rams because there was so much of it. And it wasn't until he was elsewhere and spent time as a back-up that he truly appreciated what it means to be on top. It sounded as if that time helped him put things in perspective and really regain that hunger for success.

    So yeah, I feel that Warner's current success is at least in part the result of the journey he's taken over the course of his career. A journey that included leaving a bad environment in St. Louis, going elsewhere for a few years to regroup as a mentor figure, and then eventually getting his shot as "the guy" on a talented team down the road. A journey that would have been completely different had he remained on a declining Rams team.

    If you disagree, fine. But I certainly don't think that opinion of Warner qualifies as "utter nonsense."

    Nope; don't get that in my part of the world.

    Still, I find it astonishing that a spell on the sidelines could have helped Warner's career: he was a latecomer to the NFL and he is still learning, even now. I find it quite naive of you to believe that what he said in the interview was anything other than a carefully rehearsed soundbite.

    It is nice to see him heal up, mentally & physically, and regain his old championship form.

    Believe what you want, I saw the same interview, and he said it in his own words how helpful it was.

    Fair enough. However, I don't believe everything I see on television.

    His words, and I see no reason to not believe them in this instance. Nor do I see doing so as a sign of naivety.
