    Absolutely agree. Warner is in the Hall. There is no doubt in my mind. Look at it this way, HE TOOK THE CARDINALS TO THE BRINK OF A SUPER BOWL TITLE. THE CARDINALS! Does anyone remember what the Cardinals were a year and a half ago before Warner stepped back into the starting slot? He's done too many extraordinary things during his career to not get the nod.

    Re: Will the INT at the goal line keep warner out of the HOF?

    Marshall Faulk says Warner is a Hall of Famer, and he brought up that Holmes did use the ball as a prop and should have got a penalty (I didn't even notice that).

    Tell ya what, people have said Marshall Faulk is one of the smartest players ever, so I think he knows what he's talking about.

Today's media power helps him that much.

    Again, the more people talk about him (including us), which is mostly positive, the greater his chances.


    No, I do not think today's INT at SB XLIII will keep him out at all.

    As Mike just said, "there is no doubt in my mind". How about that last TD? Sure, the Cards have an excellent OC and a great set of WR's but Kurt has been back to being the GSOT QB we knew, back to form. Perhaps not as efficient as with the Rams but remarkably close in terms of bringing Arizona its first SB victory. On, so close!!!

    He's just too well liked and accepted by such a large audience in the NFL, personally, professionally. I belive he is a HOF just waiting to happen after he retires.

    ...Getting back to the topic of this thread...I would have to say Warner did not help his HOF pursuit today. He had many bad passes, some behind, some high, some low, and that interception right before the half was a game changer.
    I agree about the roughing call. That was bogus. A for the intentional grounding, I think they did a good job of showing Big Ben's position on the field. I agree with the NON call.

    As for Warner's performance, 31-43 for 377 yds, 3 TDs and only 1 int. He completed 72% of his passes. How is that bad? If you han't seen the game or the box scores, you'd probably believe he was the winning QB. He showed great poise and leadership.
    That's my story, and I'm sticking to it!!

    Re: Will the INT at the goal line keep warner out of the HOF?

    Funny, when he threw the pick, I was thinking pretty much the same thing. ..wondering, at the time, if the Cardinals lost (which of course they eventually did) if that throw would come back to haunt Kurt. I felt sick for him when it happened. the Cards are not my team, but I've never pulled for another team to win the SB as much as I did the Cards today. ...and only because of #13.

    I for one think Kurt belongs in the Hall, just because of his numbers. If the anyone on the Cards just tackles the SOB, time expires in the half and it's a non-story. Heck, all the guy does is win.

    Re: Will the INT at the goal line keep warner out of the HOF?

    About 40 seconds away from owning 3 Super Bowl Rings with 2 different teams combined with other lifetime NFL achievements is slightly more than being 'in the discussion' whe it comes time to discuss HOF induction. IMHO, of course!

    I thought the play that Ben got the roughing call should have been intentional grounding, but they never looked at that on that play. I agree with the non-call on the intentional grounding later in the game where they drew the lines on the screen and he did get out of the pocket.

    I am probably being tough on Warner. He did very well against a good defense. Statistically his numbers are great. I was just disappointed that he did not perform well on crtical 3rd downs when they really needed to keep the ball.

    Would have another SB MVP, could have another SB MVP, but doesn't. I also wouldn't have been shocked to see Fitz get the SB MVP if they won but anyways. I think Warner needs a couple more really good to great seasons because he wasn't good in the middle of his career and I think that inconsistency hurts him a lot with the voters. I'm not a Warner hater, I'm just expressing how I think the voters will vote as of now. I hope I'm wrong.

    Re: Will the INT at the goal line keep warner out of the HOF?

    Kurt Warner has the most 300-yard passing games in the Super Bowl, with three. He also has the most career Super Bowl passing yards, with 1,156. (Joe Montana previously had the record with 1,142.)

    Warner also has the three top passing yardage performances in Super Bowl history, in only three games.

    His 1,147 yards passing in the postseason is an all-time single-season record; he broke his own mark of 1,063 from 1999 (which he accomplished in only three games).

    HOF is lifetime PROFESSIONAL football or just NFL stats? For Super Bowl stats? Is it also for 'feel good stories"?

    Regardless, Warner, IMHO, has it made in all categories.

    Warner played a heck of a game, and it will be a shame if his performance is remembered for nothing more than the play at the end of each half.

    Biggest gaffe in Super Bowl history (apart from Scott Norwood's missed FG): Jackie Smith's dropped pass against the Steelers.

    Smith was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1994.

    Does that answer the question?

    I think that if Kurt didn't bring the Cardinals back and actually took the lead, that Interception to end the 1st Half would have been magnified even more. Even though that interception was all on Warner I still don't think it will have any effect on Kurt getting into the Hall.

    ive never heard of any player going into or not going into Canton off the back of one play...doubt if it will happen this time.
