Re: What if?? Warner vs. Brunell

I would have loved to have had Warner, if only for a few seasons. Not only is he a good football player but he's an even better person. In fact he his probably one of my favorite athletes of all time along with the likes of Ripken Jr, Art Monk, and a few others. Of course we probably would have run him out of town before he got a chance to regain his confidence like he has in Arizona.

I can't help but remember Mark Brunell hobbling along with those braces like a young Forrest Gump. Yes he did win against Dallas that one time but I cursed him for three quarters before he pulled those two throws out of his rear end.

Wasn't hurt.

I mean, 2004Ramsey>2004Brunell and Ramsey is not a better player than either Brunell or Warner.

But we saw the 2004 Warner play 10 games for the Giants and have something like 9 TDs and 6 INTs, so is that really all that much better than what we saw out of Brunell in '04?

Mark Brunell is a great person also, and both have shown over time that they are solid mentors to young QBs on their team.

If I remember correctly, Warner was on a two poor game stretch when he was benched (following a solid, and unexpected, 8 game start), which suggests to me that his numbers were likely a sample issue. Or maybe he was just in decline...but then how do we explain his Arizona numbers?

I have no idea if a healthy Warner is better than a healthy Brunell. Brunell bounced right back the next year, so it's probably not a big deal anyway. I'm not sure Kurt Warner wins more than one more game than 04 Brunell anyway, in the same, pathetic offense.

I suspect Warner is a little bit better. But ultimately, our fans would have crapped on him anyway for the same not-his-fault reasons that Brunell got it. So our results wouldn't have been too much different, save for that pesky 2004 season maybe.
