WARNER DOWNPLAYS RETIREMENT TALK

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.

  1. The Rams were a better team that year. If Warner didn’t have a bum thumb on his throwing hand, they would have beaten the Pats by two touchdowns, at least. They may have still won if they would have put in a yet-untested Marc Bulger in at QB.

  2. Is there a PFTV ghost wandering around the set?
    Who was shuffling around in the background during the entire segment? I heard voices and doors opening and closing?

  3. what is the big deal here? has he made statements about retiring in the past then changed his mind every day like a certain other qb? no then quit making a big deal out of it! he was reacting to an injury to a teammate that he had a part in. as for him being a great guy and letting everyone know about it what’s wrong with that? in these days where the only time players are making the news is when they are being suspended or arrested it’s nice to read about a good guy whether he has to tell you himself or not.

    Yes, the Rams were the better team, but not that day. Just like the Pats were the better team in the last SB, but not that day. I guess as a Pats fan I can make an excuse that Brady had a bum ankle and they would’ve won by two TD’s, but guess what? They didn’t, so move on…

    Hopefuly, misspelling names isn’t contagious, or we’ll have to warn Floreo. Hey, wait a minute….
