  • Warner finally gone?

    Is there anyone else out here in Ramsland who is as happy as I am that Warner and his mouthy wife are finally gone from us? Hopefully he will do well in NY or whereever he goes but I say good riddance as he and his wife were a cancer in the clubhouse. :helmet:

    Re: Warner finally gone?

    Warner's presence on this team created a load of controversy at the quarterback position, and I'm happy that that aspect will be done and over with.

    But that said, I'm not happy to see him leave. Kurt was a class act and will always be one of my favorite Rams players. He really helped take this game to a whole new level, and I'll always miss seeing him in blue and gold.

        I'm not gonna bad mouth the man, he really was a sweetheart of a guy and his wife equally wonderful to know. But football isn't a game won by being nice. Reality bites, but regardless of his stellar few seasons, he hasn't been playing on a MVP level lately. I don't even expect him to, but he is expected to be realistic about his shortcomings, and he's ignored them once too often. You don't play 98% of a game with a concussion without everyone questioning your common sense.

        I feel for the guy, I really do. Right now everyone is focused on the negative. I'll miss him at training camp, but I can't say I'll miss him on the playing field. I do hope he can find his place somewhere in the league, but if I were him, I'd be looking for a spot OFF the field. He still has talents, just not so sure he has any left as an active QB. (Those who can, do, those who can't [anymore], teach.) Just a thought.

          Class Acts do not allow their wife to call radio talk shows and create problems for the team and coach. They do not bring the evangalization to work either. I am soooooooooo glad he is gone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            Yeah! "Class Acts" should demand that their wives stay in the kitchen and mind their own business. By golly if she ever steps out line she should hear about it! She will do what the "class act" wants of her -- or else!

            Give me a break!

            First of all, Brenda Warner is responsible for her own actions. Kurt isn't the one that dictates how she behaves and it is unfair to hold him accountable for what his wife does. He can talk to her and ask her to refrain from calling talk shows, but he can't "force" her to do (or not do) anything.

            Secondly, I am going on the record and saying that we will all miss Kurt. His days aren't over, and when he is tearing up the league next year we will all see what we "used to have" and be sad that we let it go.

            If I am wrong about that you can rub it in my face, but that is my prediction.

              I find it so amusing when trolls show up. The mentality that goes into a football fan's mind sometimes is amazing to me. If a football player is arrested for drunk driving, kills someone, is involved with spousal abuse, does drugs, holds out for money to the detriment of the team or is just a bad character in general it quietly gets swept under the rug. But when a wife defends her husband it's the end of the world.

              You can tell that I'm really bored since I'm even replying to this nonsense. I suggest that a "trial period" be instituted for new members if it hasn't already. I get the distinct impression that this particular person is only trying to stir the pot.

                Well I wont cann him a troll, thats a bit off.

                But I will say that attacking a players wife is way over the top and is not deserved, nor expected on this site. :<>

                  This is either a troll or a very disturbed person.

                    Re: Warner finally gone?

                    I am neither a troll or a disturbed person. But I do believe the team will be better off without Warner. Leonard Little has a lot to atone for but as of yet his actions as deblorable as they were are not hurting the team. It would be better for all concerned if he were to be traded to some other team. If my wife were to get involved with my job I truly believe we would have problems and that is not to say I abuse her or even run the household. I would never get involved with her job either. Sorry if I :ramlogo: upset you Warner hanger ons but I too hope Warner has sucess elsewhere but I strongly doubt if he will

                      You know, I am not going to get to far into this re hashed argument again but I have to reply to that last post.

                      How the heck do you compare someone like Warner with someone like Little?

                      Are you saying Little is a better person?

                        It'll certainly be hurting the team if he's found guilty and thus suspended again by the NFL, or if the Rams just decide to cut ties with him because of his behavior, which I could see them doing.

                          Dez In no way was I comparing Warner to Little was just answering a quote from someone else who mentioned people only get upset when Warner's wife called talk radio and not over Littles problems. They are in no way comparable.

                            You know what.

                            I 10 years when we are all sitting at a ClanRam Bash in St Louis talking about old times and remembering our first of may Superbowls. We will think kindly of Mr Warner and what he accomplished with our Team.

                            then, I will lean over, tap you on the shoulder and say ...... "told you so"

                            So why down we all turn over a new leaf, realize that Kurt has moved on and not get all *****y about it.

                            I'm game, who's with me?

                                I have a lot of respect for Kurt Warner, and a lot of great memories for what he's done in his career. I think in the right situation, he can still produce. But I'm sorry... considering retirement because he doesn't know if he could be comfortable as a back-up?...

                                Super happy to know that he began his career as a Ram and brought them to the SB twice with a 1-1 record (would've been 2-0 if the cheats were'nt cheats) And who knows, if Mad Mike didnt pull the plug too soon we could've probably gotten more. All Warner was missing yesterday was some DBs and STEVEN JACKSON!!!

                                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...

                                Tell Pete your opinion!



                                Insider | Notebook | Mailbag
                                New York Giants quarterback Kurt Warner is on a cell phone, driving somewhere in New Jersey, talking about his new team and his new situation. As he speaks, he sounds more upbeat than he has in years, which is saying something because this is one happy dude.

                                "I'm loving it here," Warner said.


                                Showing vintage form so far, Kurt Warner is proving just how little his critics know.
                                Why wouldn't he? This was a man who was written off the past year, many speculating that his time at the top had come and gone. They said his 15 minutes of fame were over.

                                That feel-good story of grocery stock boy to league MVP was nice at the time, but as quick as he rose to the top, it was sure to be followed by talk that he would fall just as fast.

                                Washed up. Over. Done. Finished.

                                Warner heard it all the past couple of seasons, the talk growing from murmurs into a full-blown amplified beat by late last season in St. Louis. Forget his two MVP awards he won with the Rams. Forget his Super Bowl victory after the 1999 season. Forget all the passing numbers.

                                The doubters, including the St. Louis Rams coaches, insisted his time was up.

                                "I guess it's unprecedented what happened to me," Warner said. "To go from where I was to the last two years, it's hard to make sense of it. People formed an opinion on what was wrong with me and they all seemed to jump on the bandwagon. It was easy to come to the conclusion that I wasn't the same player based on the past couple of years. But I never put a lot of stock in what people were saying. I knew what I was capable of doing. The bottom line for me has not been what people think about me, but what the people in my locker room and in the organization think about me. I knew I could still play and still win."

                                He's doing both, too.

                                The Giants are the surprise team of the first five weeks, winning four consecutive games after losing their opener to the Eagles. At 4-1, heading into their bye week Sunday, they are a half game behind Philadelphia in the NFC East.

                                Warner is big reason for the success.


                                So much for his just keeping the seat warm until rookie first-round pick Eli Manning takes over. Warner isn't going anywhere. Not the way he's playing. There had been some talk that Warner would keep the spot until the bye week, and then hand the keys to the car over to the younger kid. That's laughable now.


                                Warner may not be putting up the huge numbers he did with the Rams from 1999-2001, but he is running the offense with precision, he's taking care of the ball and he's getting it out on time.

                                Through...
