In an interview on Thursday’s Dan Patrick Show, Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner explained away recent reports of his possible retirement by describing the matter as something he discussed with his wife, which then took on a life of its own.
Warner also indicated that he’s still haunted by that loss to the Patriots in Super Bowl XXXVI, during which Warner thinks his Rams were the better team.
Warner’s appearance on the show, which will be available at Dan’s web site for listening at your leisure (and at no charge), is part of an impressive lineup for the day, which includes Al Michaels and Ray Lewis. (We did our best in the 9:00 a.m. EDT hour to drag down the Q-factor-per-guest average to levels resembling Reggie Bush’s average yards per carry. And, yeah, Dan gave us an opening, intentionally or otherwise, to continue to take shots at the guy who was supposed to be the next Gale Sayers.)
But we need to keep this blurb about Warner, or we’ll lose our opportunity to unload another PFTV segment for the week, in which we question the reasoning for going public with the retirement thought process. Though Warner seems to blame it all on his own personal Yoko, there’s still something about the whole thing that bothers us.
