    Rams Trade Kurt Warner to Houston Texans

    News Source: AF
    Posted by RamsFootball.com on 4/1/2002
    In a shocking development the St. Louis Rams trade Kurt Warner to the expansion Houston Texans for 3 first round draft picks and a player to be named later. It is expected that the Rams will use the first pick in the NFL draft to acquire QB David Carr from Fresno State.

    The Rams front office decided that it was time to shake things up in the organization after their disappointing loss in the Superbowl. An unnamed front office personnel had this to say, "We are always looking to add new young talent to our roster and we felt that this trade at this time will help for many years down the road. Not only do we get a quick infusion of young talent now but over the next few years also. We are very excited about the prospects, however, we are sad to see Kurt go, he has meant a lot to the organization."

    There are rumors that Dallas is also interested in acquiring Marshall Faulk to replace Emmitt Smith, more details on that possible trade as information comes in.

    News source AF? Since when did the Air Force begin monitoring the NFL?

    P.S. I would ALMOST be inclined to think that trade was a good thing. If it would happen next year, I would not flinch.

      Now, if you would have said "Trung traded", I would say you can predict the very near future.

                        Mr. Blond,

                        First of all, this was an April Fools Quote. All in fun. :o

                        Secondly, I know I am in the minority so badly here, I don't consider Kurt the heart and soul of this team. He is an important piece mind you, but not everything. It helps to have the best WR corp in the league, along with the best running back of recent years. Also, Warner dosen't get sacked that often for a pocket passer. He is deadly accurate, that is for sure. Right now in the NFL, I wouldn't take any other QB. He says himself though that he is just a piece of the pie.

                        This thread really could be taken to another level. The way the cap is structured now, the very possibility of losing a Warner, Faulk, Bruce, Wistrom...is very probable. A softer cap to keep a player who has stayed with a certain team a minimum of years (NBA) would keep core players intact with the teams that fans associate them with. Sorry Mr. Blond, did not mean to cause a heart attack. However, how teams handle the salary cap is just as important anymore as how the team performs on the field . Reality sometimes sucks dosen't it?

                              I have been watching Kurt play since UNI. (I lived in Ames, kinda near Cedar Falls, at the time) and I think that everyone downgrades his skills too much. Is he the heart of the team? Hard call. He's in there.

                              You can be an average Wideout when the QB drops the ball into your hands. Don't get me wrong, I loved Az, but he's no Bruce and never will be. Wilkins was a solid trade up... (We need to remember to send a card to Indianapolis, they keep giving us their best stuff.) Above average wideouts look great with a great QB like Warner, and WR's like Bruce get guaranteed tickets to the Hall of Fame.

                              Marshall? I figure we should loan him to the US Army in Afghanistan to help out our troops, He could run point (Bullets bounce off of him, so he'd be really useful...)

                              Who's the heart of the team? There are four chambers in a heart. Williams is surely one, Warner is too, Faulk is there, but the best laid plans of mice and men never work unless there is the fourth... :rolleyes:

                              The Fans...

                                Would you trade down with both our first round picks, no further then 15 to add two second round picks?

                                Not a lot of trade partners for the #2 pick
                                by AvengerRam_old
                                There are a number of reasons why a trade down to acquire more choices might make sense for the Rams, but I'm not sure there are many potential trade partners.

                                The most likely reason a team would trade up to #2 is to acquire one of the top QBs in the draft (presuming Stafford and Bradford both declare). However, most of the teams at the top of the draft don't need QBs. Kansas City, sitting at #3, would probably take a QB, so they could be willing to give up a pick (maybe a 3rd rounder) to swap with the Rams. Of course, that requires a bluff on the Rams' part (convincing KC that the Rams won't simply pass on a QB).

                                After that, the next several teams are unlikely to draft a QB:

                                (4) Seattle - possible, as Hasselbeck is getting up there and coming off an injury, but would they make an intra-division trade?
                                (5) Cleveland - no (Brady Quinn)
                                (6) Cincinnati - doubtful (Carson Palmer)
                                (7) Oakland - no (JaMarcus Russell)
                                (8) Jacksonville - no (David Garrard)
                                (9) Green Bay - no (Aaron Rodgers, Brian Brohm)
                                (10) San Fran - yes (but, in division)

                                As for teams with multiple first rounders, there are only two. Detroit, which has the first and 20th, does not present as a trade partner. Even if the Rams wanted to trade for the 20th and 33rd picks (not a match on the value chart), I doubt that Detroit wants to pay the first and second picks in the draft. The Eagles will have two of the last 12 selections (depending on the playoffs), but that also would not be a good swap. Unless the Eagles are planning to get rid of McNabb, I doubt they'd trade three top picks (two 1s and 2 or 3, for example) to jump up and take a QB.

                                So, don't be surprised if the Rams stay at #2, whether they wish to or not.

                                Trade down?
                                by Guest
                                Is there any scenario that we would want to trade down and get either an extra 2nd or 3rd round pick?

                                What would be realistic to expect?
                                Down 5 for 3rd?
                                Down 10 for second?

                                We need so much help on defense it would be nice to get an extra pick. I would like to upgrade at TE and OL (1 G or C) but that may have to come via free agency or next off-season.

                                Warner's Rise Inspirational, Warner's Fall Perplexing

                                I've watched the Kurt Warner story since day 1. I still remember the disappointment I felt when the Rams lost their recently signed quarterback Trent Green to injury in the preseason against San Diego. I also remember Kurt Warner holding up the Lombardi trophy as he lead his team in Super Bowl XXXIV. Now Kurt's all but gone.

                                Before Trent Green went down, it was supposed to be redemption for Rams fans. After years of struggling, The Rams went out and signed a highly regarded quarterback from the Washington Redskins. Green, our new quarterback, was starting a new era in Saint Louis Rams football. Scratch that, the Rams were starting a new era with a new quarterback. But that quarterback was not Trent Green. It was Kurt Warner. With the Kurt Warner era ending today or tomorrow, I can't help but wonder.

                                Kurt Warner's rise was a phoenix's birth. From the fire of devastation in Trent Green's injury, Kurt Warner rose from the ashes, entered the NFL, and found his place in history. His rise to glory, Super Bowls, and Most Valuable Player trophies seem very unlikely. Kurt's Cinderella story is the stuff of Hollywood. It's an inspirational tale that everyone wants to tell their grandchildren. It's that never-give-up mantra that we all need to remember when we are down. It's dare I say Biblical in how faith was rewarded. And as near impossible as that story starts, the come-from-nowhere story actually seems probable when compared to Kurt Warner's fall.

                                As suddenly as it began, the Kurt Warner story fizzled out. But the most perplexing part of Kurt's quick fade from the Ram's starting quarterback job is not as shocking as how it happened.

                                The rise was improbable. After all, Kurt's rise to fame did not occur as a 24-year old just out of college. Kurt was older, more experienced, and had played Arena Football and NFL Europe football. He was the player trying to break through. A man of strong spiritual belief, Kurt did the Lord's will and tried, tried, tried. So really, it's no surprise that his faith was rewarded.

                                But how he's handled the fall is really the story that boggles the mind. It's confusing to hear Kurt talk about his faith becoming a reason for his departure from the starting job in Saint Louis (happened in February, 2004). When that news became public, coach Mike Martz was angry and Kurt retracted his story. How does this happen? Kurt's reaction seems inconsistent with his publicly-shared religious faith. What's going on, Kurt?

                                Honestly, the Kurt Warner story has become a bad reality television show. And like most TV, we only hear part of the story.

                                Because of that, I'm not sure what to think. The most surprising thing for me is Kurt's attitude. With his strong religious beliefs, I'd expect Kurt to hand off what happens to God. Personally, that may be how he rose to such great heights. He just followed his...
