Kurt Warner announced his retirement today. It's a sad day for me as a Cardinals fan and will miss #13 next season but feel blessed that such a person QB'd my team for 5 seasons helping us to finally reach the Super Bowl. If this man isn't elected to the Hall of Fame it will be a tragedy.

A great player and a cinch to make the Hall.

A great player and a cinch to make the Hall.
There are many who feel he doesn't belong even though his numbers and accomplishments speak for themselves. Peter King is one such loon. And include the fact that 2002 and 2003 he was injured, then he was benched for Eli Manning in NY, and Dennis Green did everything in his power not to play him and he still put the numbers he out up is astounding. In 12 years he put in 3 16 game seasons, a 15 and 16 game seasons, one 11 game seasons, 2 10 game seasons, two 7 game seasons, and 3 games over 2 other seasons and he still put up over 30K yards, over 200TD's, an all time best completion % of 65% and change, 2nd in 300 yard games, 2nd only to Peyton Manning, the guy is the most underrated player I've ever had the privilege to watch. But he'll still get resistance to the hall.

I agree, Peter King is a moron, he's part of the Reason Favre came back last year and caused the huge mess that insuded.
Warner is a First Ballet HOF as far as i'm concered. for a guy that got cut by Green Bay while lugging around Favre's Helmet at practice they guy made a name of himself. Also this is the PRO-Football Hall of Fame, not the NFL Hall of Fame, his accomplishments in the AFL should be brought up too. He's what all Pro Football Players shouls strive to be. not asstards like TO and Chad Johnson.
FYI i'm a Packer Fan and hated Warner much of my HS years when he took the Rams to the Super Bowl, rooted against him both times, though i rooted for him Last year in the SB and think he got jobbed on the last play. Though I did have to Root against him this year.
Good luck to the Cards and hope that Lienart works out for them.

This is from Wiki. If half of it is true, I don't see how he would be picked ASAP
Kurtis Eugene "Kurt" Warner (born June 22, 1971) is a former quarterback (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quarterback) for the Arizona Cardinals (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arizona_Cardinals), New York Giants (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_Giants), and St. Louis Rams (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Louis_Rams) of the National Football League (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Football_League).
