Re: Kurt Warner announces retirement after 12 seasons

I was surprised he retired but I don't blame him. He had a great career and has some gas left in the tank. Great QB, class human being. Enjoy life as always Kurt. Thanks for some awesome memories. :thumb:

Most of the guys I'm referring to were a bunch of college unknowns. You may be able to apply that logic to the Vikings this year, but almost all of the recievers that these guys have developed have been out of nowhere.

Brady is a special case also, they didn't decide to buy him some weapons (Moss and Welker) until he developed a few on his own. Patten, Branch, Brown and others. Then again where would Welker and Moss be right now without Brady?

Re: Kurt Warner announces retirement after 12 seasons

Congrats to a great player & person! I really am surprised & thought he could give it one more shot w/the cards. Maybe he'll announce that he's coming back just as Farve announces he'll retire again?!

Schefter threw out the idea of the Cards trying to nab McNabb in a deal since he has a home in ARizona.

He still played at a high level after leaving San Fran without Rice.

Whichever QB just happened to lead them in 1999. Any one of them could have done it that year. That offense was even more unstoppable in 2000 and they could have won it then too. Green Started 8 games that year BTW.

Re: Kurt Warner announces retirement after 12 seasons

I was wrong earlier, it was one year with Giants. Was injured most of time and was still 5-4 when they decided to go with Eli. The reason i said circular logic because you also say later how some recievers were only good when they got certain Qbs. So qbs are only good because wrs,then wrs only good because of qbs.

He basically resurrected(no pun intended) two franchises and took both to Super Bowls. Not to mention he has passing records and a long career. Great winning percentage. Does he need to go to the Lions and win a superbowl to impress you? Nevermind they have good receivers that wouldn't count.

Re: Kurt Warner announces retirement after 12 seasons

He would go out a top five quarterback.

I think Warner will get his hall of fame due when he comes eligible, but I don't think people realize just how good this guy was. I don't think there have been ten better quarterbacks to ever play the game of football. Certainly not since the merger.

I was never sold on Palmer when he was everyone's 3rd best QB. I did once think Bulger was going to be really good though.

But Manning could be considered in the same camp you put Warner in. He has only played with a strong supporting cast. James, Harrison, Wayne and Clark. There are 2 HOers there. I do admit that Manning is one of the best QB's of all time but he's had a ridiculous supporting cast, better then what most QBís have worked with.

Re: Kurt Warner announces retirement after 12 seasons

I took full offense from your post about Christians....but honestly, in the NFL as far as starters go, who else sets an example like him? A good guy who isnt an extremist...im just saying those kind of guys are hard to come by.....

Warner was good at getting the ball out of his hands before he got hit, luckily he had some talent on the other end to do something with it. That the way I see it and you cannot change it.

Have to agree with Matty's rebuttal of this quote. Could Manning be any good without Harrison, Wayne, Clark, and Gonzalez til he got hurt? Marshall Faulk, Edgerrin James, and Joe Addai, aren't bums either. Every great QB in the NFL or college had a solid supporting cast. THat is why I am not going "gaga" over the Big 4 QB prospects in this draft. They rocked when their team had a distinct talent advantage over most of their opponents, but got roughed up when the odds were even.

Sorry not trying to offend anyone. But how about Fletcher as a great example. There are tons of guys that do great things that are starters in this league. Kurt and LT both set great examples of being a Christian. Just like Pacman and Tank Johnson set great examples of being a thug. The difference is Kurt and LT are also good humanitarians. If Kurt was a atheist or a Hindu and his off the field work was otherwise the same in my eyes he would be just as classy of a guy. Being a good Christian doesnít make you better or worse in my book.

And sorry to everyone else. I donít want to take away from this thread anymore. I will refrain from talking about any more religious stuff in this threadÖÖ

Whenever people talk whos better Manning or Brady thats the one argument for Brady. He never had a really great WR cast around him untill 2007 when Moss and Welker showed up. MAYBE you can make the case for Deion Branch, but hes more of just a big name to me. The best offessive player behind Brady was Adam Vinatieri proir to the arrivial of Moss and Welker. Could Manning have done what Brady did coming into NE?

So i put Warner and Manning in the same camp, except Manning has had more advantages (same team, offense, players, coaches, and everyone believing in him from the start). I think Manning is better but I really believe Warner is a all time great.
