    Warner looks good in relief role

    15/20, 258yds, 2 TD's, & 0 ints.

    Looks like there may be a QB controversy brewing in AZ as Warner relieved an ineffectual Leinart and barring a game-winning FG as the game expired almost led AZ to a win over Baltimore.

    Still having an affinity for Warner I was glad to see him do well.

    I would still rather see our Rams win though.....:l

    Yeah, I was glad to see Warner do well. Ever since he got those gloves, he's been lights out.
    There is almost 100% support for Warner to start on the Cards message board.

    According to Peter King on NBC's football show tonight, Warner was simply put in because it was a hostile environment and Leinart looked a bit intimidated. Sounds as if they're going back to Leinart next week.

    And from what I hear, the coach thought Warner would do better when forced to be in the no-huddle offense.
    Perhaps the Cards will try a 2 QB system? Let Leinart screw it up, and then have Kurt come in and try to fix things.

    Re: Warner looks good in relief role

    Coach Ken Whisenhunt made it clear after the game that Leinart will remain the starting quarterback.

    The package that Warner orchestrated worked well, however.

    “We planned (Kurt playing) going into the week,” Whisenhunt said. “There was too much for Matt to focus on. It was effective for us.

    “We were down three scores, so that’s why we stayed with it (and played Warner).”

    Re: Warner looks good in relief role

    Wow, they PLANNED on Warner playing the whole time.
    I think Leinart is close to being in Whisenhunt's doghouse. I've also heard that Leinart hasn't been focused and stuff this year.
    But if I were the Cards, I'd just run that no-huddle stuff all the time with Warner. If the Ravens can't stop it, do you think our defense or the 9ers or Hawks' defenses could?

    "There was too much for Matt to focus on."

    What the heck is that? Does Leinhart need some adderall?

    Cards fans have been critisizing Matt because of a lack of focus. I don't know what he's done recently off the field, but I guess it just looks like his head isn't into the game.

    Re: Warner looks good in relief role

    Yeah, watching Warner come in agains the Ravens was a blast from the past. He really hasn't ever looked better. His passes were tighter spirals(thanks gloves) and every one of them was on the mark and in rhythm. He's still got the fire to start and he's said he's really excited about having the opportunity to play every week in the no huddle offense.

    The timing and accuracy were what surprized me the most about is performance. I would assume he hasn't been getting much time with the #1's in practice but he looked like he's been in there all along. He wasn't playing against soft coverages or prevent defense either. He was moving around in the pocket, taking hits while all the while keeping his eyes downfield looking for a receiver. Like I said, I've never seen him look better. As good, yes. But, not better. It reminded me of the Rams/Dolphins game from...'01, I'm pretty sure. He put up 4 td's that day but the way he played, that was very similar to yesterday. Instead of a play ending in a sack, incompletion or fumble, he was dancing around, scrambling and making positive things happen. Dare I say, he's got his swagger back?

    I know he's glad to finally be the one not looking over his shoulder.

    it was great to see Warner play well, he will always be a favorite of mine and I do think the Cards have a better shot with him in there,if you protect him he can still pick a defense apart,even a very good one like Baltimore.

    Leinart was a bit intimidated??? Welcome to the NFL, it's time to grow up son.

    Leinart is a wuss. A boy trying to play a (KURT WARNER) mans game.
