  • Warner named starting Qb for 04

    http://www.giants.com/

    This morning Giants head coach Tom Coughlin named Kurt Warner his starting quarterback. Warner beat out the Giants #1 draft choice Eli Manning for the job during an intense quarterback competition this summer.

    I don't think anyone is surprised by this. I just hope Kurt survives the Philly and Redskins game without serious injury.

      As it should be. Should have been a non-issue from the beginning.

        Warner has the experience, not really a big deal. Eli could get in at the Philly game with their blitz happy defense and Warner's recent history of injuries. Good luck to him, though.

          Kurt Warner has been benched
          by LaRamsFanLongTime
          After another hard loss for the New Yourk Giants, Tom Coughlin announced that Eli Manning will start for the Giants. After the loss Coughlin said Warner would start but Monday the story changed and so did the starting QB for the Giants.

          "Eli has been involved in the game plan, he knows the system and he will come in and play the game."

          "Kurt will be very supportive of Eli."
          This sucks for Kurt, man I was pulling for him.

          Kurt Warner Donates Left Arm To Help Young QB

          I know we've had a lot of Kurt Warner threads lately, but I thought this article was interesting:...

          Footballguys.com Analysis of Warner Situation
          by Nick
          Fantasy Notebook: Fool Me Once, Shame On You. ...
          By Bob Harris - Senior NFL Analyst - Footballguys.com

          Well, the latest reports filtering out of the Big Apple say Kurt Warner
          looked sharp during his initial mini-camp workouts this week. His passes
          were crisp and mostly on target. But as New York Daily News staffer Ralph
          Vacchiano noted, the surprise was that Eli Manning's passes looked even
          better.

          After struggling through his first mini-camp as a pro early last month,
          Manning put all that behind him Monday with a much-improved performance
          that caught the eyes of his coaches and teammates.

          According to Vacchiano, "his command in the huddle was better and he had a
          much greater knowledge of the offense. And as a result, he was able to
          show off the right arm that the Giants worked so hard to acquire in their
          blockbuster draft-day trade."

          Wow. Sounds pretty darned good. ...

          Unfortunately, Manning didn't fare as well Tuesday. Which should come as
          no surprise. Once again, we're talking about a rookie trying to get up to
          speed at the league's most difficult position to master.

          Which is why, I suspect, we'll see a growing media drumbeat surrounding
          the Warner/Manning competition with Warner putting increasing pressure on
          his younger teammate as he becomes familiar with the Giants' system and
          his NFL MVP experience begins to factor into the equation.

          But that doesn't mean I believe Warner is the best man for this job. Nor
          am I sure he's not. And I'm not alone in my confusion.

          In fact, after reviewing some of the opinions being floated by those "in
          the know," I've come to the conclusion that Warner is as mysterious to the
          rest of the world as he is to me.

          A sampling follows. ...

          In an article published Monday, Sports Illustrated insider Peter King
          advised readers: "I think Kurt Warner, whatever happens, will be a team
          player and will help Eli Manning as much as he can with the Giants. Warner
          is one of the few people I know in football who truly would help the guy
          behind him even if it meant it might hurt his situation."

          But former Giants quarterback Phil Simms disagreed.

          "The perfect guy (for the Giants) was Neil O'Donnell," Simms told the
          Newark Star-Ledger. "It's not a knock against Kurt, but the agendas are
          different. Kurt Warner still wants to be a franchise quarterback. He wants
          to be the guy. ... Kurt Warner will give information to Eli, but he's
          going to be more concerned about his performance, his knowledge and what
          he's doing."

          step further,...
