  • quote about Warner

    I think I wanted to write about Kurt Warner after the Super Bowl, but didn't get the chance because he was so average and his team lost. But a few numbers from the last three years shouldn't be forgotten. One: Warner is the most accurate quarterback ever, completing 66.9 percent of his throws, better than second-place Steve Young (64.3). Two: Warner is the highest-rated quarterback ever, at 103.0; Young is a light year behind (96.8) in second place. Three, and this is one for the ages: Warner's career 9.02-yards-per-pass-attempt is almost half-a-yard better than No. 2 Otto Graham, at 8.63. No quarterback who has played football in the last 50 years has had a career yards-per-attempt average of eight yards, and Warner's is over 9. "I mean, do people have any idea what we're watching here?" say his coach, Mike Martz.

      Kurt Wonder...

      :cool: No. 13 can really get hot! Kurt Wonder.

      He needs only a stainless steel support (R thumb) and, watch out!

      Two, three, or even four more SBowl Ws ... is ... NOT unrealistic!

      This is not only a matter of establishing the feat as a personal goal --which it is-- rather, it is his potential at play. The Ram coaches, players and experience around him almost secure his place as ONE OF THE BEST NFL QBs e-v-e-r.
      :lid: The decade is still young, he has matured to become awesome. Let's see...

        I think Kurt is so great that when he is average we tend to get upset. He still threw for over 300 yards in the super bowl and probably is the MVP if the Patriots don't hold our recievers all game!

          Warner deffinately has paved a great path for himself...but I dont want to taboo his playing for the next season so lets keep focused and remember he is human so if he messes up once we can live...I remember how the press ate up faulks first fumble last season as if he werent allowed to be human.Then it went to 2,3, 4 fumbles...Warner and Faulk are exceptional as far as records and players...but real people too.

              Warner is great, but what about the INT he threw in the Super Bowl last year. Am I the only one that thinks he did wrong?

                  Wow, those are some great stats. Thanks for the info, Dez. It should make us all take a step back and realize what these years are like and how we will remember them forever as Rams fans. I truly take it as an honor to be alive during these times as a Ram fan.

                      Tex,
                      I agree that he should have thrown the ball away, but the play should have been called back for the flagrant head slap anyway. There were times in the regular season that he tried to force balls that he should have thrown away, but a few bad decisions will never negate what he has accomplished. Kurt is CONSISTENTLY outperforming some of the greatest Q.B.s to ever play the game in several categories. Go Kurt! Go Rams!!

                              And yet we still give him hell for throwing interceptions. I think its time we got off the man's back and let him do his job. Seems he's doing it pretty well, regardless of the interceptions and sacks. I sure do enjoy reading something like that though.

                                Warner as a color analyst?
                                by txramsfan
                                I have always thought that when 13 hangs the pads up for the last time TV should be knocking on his door. The man is articulate, humble, entertaining, has a sense of humor, respected and knows the game inside and out. It's easy to listen to Warner describe situations because he doesn't stutter, and always seems to be confident in what he is talking about.

                                Okay, I want to start out by saying that YES, I do respect Kurt Warner and I greatly appreciate him helping us win Super Bowl 34. What my problem is, when Kurt Warner started slipping, couldnt concentrate in practice "because he was too busy reading his bible", his wife wouldnt shut her big mouth, he couldnt throw a ball with a broken pinky when the ALMIGHTY Brett Farve can play a fantastic game with a broken THUMB. You cant hold on to a player just because he won you one super bowl. Dont you want to win more than just that?? Kurt got a fair start in Arizona and Mikes offense flourished with Marc Bulger. Marc & Torry have undeniable chemistry. No doubt if Kurt Warner would have played that year instead, he would have become a distraction and we would not have done as well as we did. Mike took so much crap for letting warner go, but it was for the better of both sides. Well I dont care if you agree or not, but as a BULGERiTE I felt complelled to post this little stat for you:
                                • QB Marc Bulger (101) needs two touchdown passes to pass Kurt Warner (102) for fourth place on the Rams’ all-time career touchdown completions list.

                                Oh and dont get confused. That was before the game, before his TD pass to BIG GAME (my man)!! He stood up like a man, came back from a concussion and played like a man, no one can deny that. But so that makes it ....one more touchdown and the record goes to who it belongs to

                                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...

                                Kurt Warner ends his storybook career

                                By Jim Thomas
                                ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
                                01/30/2010


                                He walked into the room in typical Kurt Warner style, with humility in his heart and a Bible in his hand. And then directly and with clarity announced what everyone expected: that he was retiring after 12 storybook seasons in the NFL.

                                In no way did he seem conflicted about his decision. The only time he got emotional was after he brought wife Brenda and their seven children onstage at Friday's news conference in Tempe, Ariz.

                                The MVP awards, the Super Bowls, the amazing statistics will always be associated with Warner. But that's not really what Warner wants as his legacy.

                                "The one thing that I always want to leave people with ... is that anything is possible," Warner said. "I think that's one of the reasons that God's placed me up here and allowed me to do what I do. To encourage people out there that although sometimes it doesn't look really bright, and there's moments you want to give up ... that anything's possible.

                                "I hope that when people think back on my career ... that that's what they remember more than anything else. Not the way I threw the football. Not particular games that I won. That they remember that here's a guy that believed, that worked hard, and although things didn't always go in his favor, he continued to press through. And with his faith in himself and with his faith in God, he was able to accomplish great things. That's what I want everybody to remember."

                                How could we ever forget?

                                From grocery store clerk in Iowa to triggerman for the Greatest Show on Turf. It was a made-for-TV movie if ever there was one. But then came the wrenching loss to New England in Warner's second Super Bowl. Injuries. The Brenda-gate controversies with Mike Martz.

                                After his unceremonious release by the Rams following the 2003 season, Warner seemed lost in the wilderness career-wise with the New York Giants, and initially, with the Arizona Cardinals.

                                "After leaving the Giants, it looked like that was probably it," current Rams general manager Billy Devaney said. "There were questions about him, about his thumb. And then he puts on the glove (on his throwing hand for the 2007 season)."

                                And suddenly, it was vintage Warner once again, and for the second time in his career he took a woebegone franchise to the Super Bowl. Call it the rise and fall — and rise again — of Warner.

                                "It's absolutely one of the most amazing stories in sports," said Charley Armey, Rams GM during most of Warner's six-year stay in St. Louis. "It probably never happens again in our lifetime."

                                "It's an unbelievable story," said Dick Vermeil, head coach of the Rams' Super Bowl championship team. "No quarterback...

                                Warner's the man, at least to Warner

                                First published: Thursday, August 19, 2004

                                ALBANY -- He's still the quarterback who takes teams to Olympus. Still the quarterback whose passing statistics are a fantasy of flight. Still the quarterback whose grocery-bags-to-NFL-MVP story felt as good as a kiss.
                                Kurt Warner is convinced of this.

                                He's gone from superstar to waiver wire. Untouchable to unwanted. At the end in St. Louis, the Rams were as eager to show Warner the door as he was to pass through it. He was signed by the Giants to be a mentor and stopgap, until Eli Manning is ready. Everything in Warner's career has changed -- but him, he insists.

                                In nearly every player's career there comes a time when his skills, as Bill Belichick once said of Bernie Kosar's, diminish. Age and injuries make mortals of all. The player knows when he enters the winter of his career, but he won't publicly admit it.

                                Warner, now 33, says he's the same quarterback, and because he's friendly, and gracious with his time, you want to believe him.

                                But you don't.

                                Once, Warner led the Greatest Show on Turf. Now, he's trying to hold Manning at bay long enough to audition for a starting job with another team next season. That's not the same at all.

                                There has never been an NFL player like Kurt Warner. From stock boy to wonder boy to oh boy, what happened. It would be as if Greg Maddux had gone from video store clerk to Cy Young control artist to a pitcher who stopped throwing strikes, though Warner doesn't see it that way. The Rams' 0-8 record in his last eight games as a starter didn't change Warner's opinion of himself.

                                "You have to say, 'Did Kurt Warner lose those eight games because Kurt Warner didn't play well, or did the Rams lose those last eight games because the team didn't play well?' " Warner said. "I think that's where people sometimes get skewed in their opinion."

                                Warner doesn't mention that the Rams were 18-4 the past two seasons when Marc Bulger started at quarterback. Granted, win-loss percentage isn't everything. But it's something. And playing on the same team, with the same players, Bulger enjoyed success while Warner flopped. But if Warner's fumbling 14 times and throwing 11 interceptions with only four touchdowns in those eight games have cracked his confidence, he conceals it behind his disarming smile.

                                "I feel like I can play as well as anybody in this league," Warner said. "I can still play this game. I don't plan on being average."

                                Thing is, average would be an improvement.

                                One trait players like in their quarterback: accountability. They respect a guy who accepts criticism when warranted and shares praise when deserved. But in a recent conversation, this is as close as Warner came to acknowledging he performed...
