  • Kurt Warner!

    Kurt Warner by far is my favorite Ram and favorite NFL Player. He has only started for 2 seasons now so he obviously doesn't have the stats of a Joe Montana or a John Elway yet, but he will get there. Just look what he did in Super Bowl XXXIV, throwing for 414 yards was the most by any QB in a Super Bowl. The main thing is Kurt Warner is the best QB off the field also, he has a great personality, he is kind and doesn't take for granted the success he has. He came from the Arena League to the Rams as just a backup qb, he had no idea he would become a starter when he did in 99. If you look at other qb's though it wasn't so smooth, remember John Elway refusing to go to the Colts because he demanded to play with the Broncos, yet everyone praises Elway like he was a God. Kurt Warner is the true class act QB we need to embrace, he symbolizes what a true athlete should be like.

    True. Now that we have such a good qb its easy to forget how good he is as a plyer and person. In a day and age when may are big heads and move every year or 2 for bigger pay cheques warner is a bright light, we are lucky to have him.

      Yes Warner is the best, yet I still don't feel he gets the attention that the Steve Young's or the Dan Marino's recieved when they were playing. Now I understand that they played allot longer, but why can't the media expose a good class act guy for once. Young and Marino were good people but you get my point. It makes me so sick that everyone was all excited for John Elway to get his first ring, but I'll never forgett how allot of people only were dissapointed that Super Bowl XXXIV had the Rams and Titans instead of the Broncos and the Vikings. Yes Warner is still new to the league, but it's a great story and it's the story we should all be following. GO RAMS!

        I think warner maybe won too quickly for their liking and the fact it was the rams who were winning rubbed everyone up the wrong way. People seem to think if you visibly struggle to become vicotrious like young over montana and the ghost he left, and elway and past superbowl failures, it makes you better. Warner was never seen to struggle in the limelight only in his past told in a story that may have been told too many times, but facts are facts he is a top qb no argument. People say "well look at he offense around him" well montana never had a bad one himself and remember last year when trent backed up? He scored plenty and is a good qb, had a top rating. But watch him play, he's no Warner, no one is he is so ice cool. The top qb.

          I agree on your comments. And your right Montana had a pretty good offense around him back then. And there is no doubt in my mind that without Terrel Davis that John Elway would have retired without a ring. So Warner doesn't have any more then those guys did, the bottom line is he is just a great quarterback. And yes I believe most of America didn't take the Rams success to well because they had lost for so many years and also because of them leaving L.A. Yet I didn't hear to much discussion on the Ravens last year, last I remember they just packed up and left Cleveland and took the Browns away from those great fans.

            MMMM. People quick forget that now! I still think Kurt was the only guy out there that could have picked holes in the ravens monster D.

              Oh I agree! The entire Rams offense would have done well against the Ravens. Infact had the Raiders shown up in the AFC Title game the Ravens would not have even been there. The Giants had nothing offensively in Super Bowl 35 and their defense was awful. The Rams would have been a much better opponent. Everyone was upset the Rams made it though in Super Bowl 34 because of leaving L.A., well they should have been just as upset last year at the Ravens for leaving Cleveland. Yet I'm sure they would just throw at us that we left Cleveland before also ha ha We can't win with the critics, either way KW is the best and so are our rams.

                Really glad to see a player like Warner develop. Didn't play until his 5th year at Northern Iowa, and I can sense he has more to prove. He is lucky that Holt, Bruce, and Faulk is there, but someone has to give them the ball.

                Is it me, or is anyone else ready for some football?


                • #9
                  Never been more ready TX. For all this talk of the new defense, I just can't wait to see our offense give defensive co-ordinators some headaches, WHO YOU GONNA COVER?

                    Underrated offense?...

                    Good point! Who and when to cover? Or, how?...

                    It is interesting and even ironic that so much has been said about and supplied via our new-and-improved defense; one might forget about the power punch and potential ready to pounce from the other side of the ball. Now that the preseason is down to its last game, many forget that there's a truly awesome offense in the NFL --some call it the greatest show on earth.

                    Ha! :p , wouldn't it be something to think that, because of all the attention given to the new D, the Rams offense would be considered as "underrated?" What a gang of reliable, stelar performers! Warner, Faulk, Bruce, Holt, Hakim, Canidate, Conwell, Pace, Timmerman, Robinson... (+ Martz), etc. X 3. Elements of which dynasties are made of in the NFL.

                    Rams have too many / too good players on offense for me to pick as favorite. Perhaps on a 'favorite of the week' basis.

                    All rite! COME ONNNNNN, LET'S GO RAMS!!!!!!! :mad:

                          There are times when covering an NFL team that even the biggest fan
                          might find to be more work than enjoyment. Dealing with professional athletes
                          is a real pain at times, and trying to give fans the true story when so many rumors have sent them into so many directions is even worse. While there are times that the words fly out of a writer’s mind onto the pages he is composing, there are others when sitting down and rehashing the facts to tell a tale is almost excruciating. If I am doing a column twenty years from now, I probably won’t have had to labor over a story as much as this one.

                          Oh, sure, nobody died, no beloved sports figure met his maker far too young on the day after Memorial Day, which is the toughest stuff to cover from a personal side; but in a lot of ways, it seems like something truly died for Ramsnation when the team released Kurt Warner. When the long predicted move was made official this past Wednesday however, there was no outcry from Rams fans, no wail of sorrow at a tragic event. Not surprisingly, Warner himself left town with the same class and good feelings that are his trademark.

                          Like a parent, spouse, or child who has seen a loved one slowly slip away due to illness, those of us who will never forget what #13 meant to a team and a city have little emotion left to give as the irreversible end finally came. They have gone through the same predictable emotions of anger, denial, bargaining, and depression, then a numb acceptance of our fate, as cancer victims, ever since Kurt Warner began showing he was human after all. Ironically, the most incredible and improbable feel good story in NFL history involved a man who embodies everything decent about the human animal, despite his immortal like play when at his best.

                          As the negative stories and feelings about Warner as the Rams quarterback appeared, they acted upon his legacy like tumors on bodily organs, some spreading and mutating to other areas. We may never know how the negative vibes played a part in what so quickly turned a two time MVP passer into a backup. If Warner shines with the Giants, another team needing the kind of miracle that Warner gave Rams fans and the world in 1999, maybe it will provide a bit of a clue.

                          I was at Warner’s last start, in the Meadowlands against those same Giants, and as painful as it was having to suffer with him on that day, and suffer the slings and arrows of Giants fans during and following the game, I feel blessed that I got to see as much as I could of Kurt Warner in person. It was that personal contact over the past six seasons that makes his inexplicable fall from grace so distressing.

                          In the NFL, everyone knows the salary cap, and other factors makes it nearly impossible to keep players for entire careers, something Rams fans have had to...

                          My experience with Kurt Warner...
                          by Varg6
                          Hey guys, so I told you guys about a week ago that I'd give you more details on what I meant by saying that I hung out with Kurt Warner...

                          I was invited to a flag football tournament out in Arizona. A bunch of NFL guys come out for the event (it's sponsored by Kurt Warner at the Arizona Cardinals' training facility; they had guys like Michael Irvin, Joe Flacco, Andy Dalton, Steve Young, Brock Osweiler, and more) and, essentially, play QB for the teams. There were about six or eight teams, I'm not exactly sure how many, but all of them were basically sports supplement companies. I was lucky enough to be a part of one of my good friend's team. We wound up getting Andy Dalton for our QB. He's a very nice guy, laid back, down to Earth. I, of course, asked him about Sam Bradford. He said, like most people say, that he thinks he's pretty good and they just need to get him some weapons. Fair enough.

                          I briefly met with Kurt Warner, and I told him what a huge fan I am of him and the Rams. He said something to the effect of "oh that's pretty cool man." He wasn't necessarily thrilled or anything, but I also know he was trying to run an event and was pretty overwhelmed.

                          And let me tell you something about Kurt. Really nice guy off the field. But on the field, (or with any competitive thing he does, for that matter) he's always trying to win. No matter what it is, he'll get mad if he's not winning! But that's not really a bad thing. He's fiery and passionate. It's a good thing.

                          I'd say out of all the guys there, Irvin was probably the most outgoing and friendly. Everyone there was pretty cool though and it was a great experience. Caught a few TDs from Andy (wished it was from Kurt or, maybe next year, Sammy) so I felt good about that!

                          Here's a pic of me and Kurt.

                          K Warner - no matter what great guy
                          by ramhard
                          From Peter King's Monday Morning QB column:

                          Good Guy of the Week

                          Arizona quarterback Kurt Warner.

                          Karen Crouse of the New York Times wrote a good feature on Warner in last Friday's paper, with a prescient story as the lead. Seems that Warner, wife, Brenda, and one or more of the Warner children have a practice the night before football games. They sit at their table in a restaurant, look over the dining room, and pick out one family. Warner then informs the wait staff that, anonymously, he'd like the dinner tab of that family of strangers added to his.

                          Crouse wrote the Warners have been doing this for several years "as a way of instilling in their children the joy of giving,'' and quoted Warner thusly: "We want our kids to grow up knowing that because of football we are so blessed.''

                          Just another reason why you can never say enough good things about Kurt Warner.

                          Warner vs. Marino
                          by masi
                          Yesterday i had a discussion with a friend who is a huge Dan Marino's fan. He said that Dan's records will never nbe broken and that our Kurt Warner should be renamed Kurt "one-year-wonder" Warner, because he'll not be able to repeat 1999 and 2000 numbers.
                          I think Kurt has all the skills to reach and surpass most of the Marino achievements, and i'm realy convinced that without the injury, a lot of Marino's record would have already be broken last season.

                          And... Kurt has one thing marino will never have: a ring :cool: :cool: :cool:
