    Warner seems like a good dude. Florio has a sweet hair cut.

    Don’t you mean a wig to hide behind?

    Good for him. I never liked the god crap , but the guy could throw a freaking nice pass. Unlike Donnie in the Dirt.

    Penguin: The “god crap”? Shows he has balls, IMHO. He isn’t afraid to take a hit, whether as a QB or as a man. The man stands up for what he believes. You don’t have to believe it, but you can at least respect the fact that he’s straightforward and up front. You go, Kurt. Classy guy.

    We’re gonna miss this guy in AZ. He’s a class act, humble, straightforward and much more. I don’t know why people rail on him for his mentions of God and his faith. We call out all sorts of athletes for guns, crimes, women etc., and then when a descent person comes, with their faith out in front, we have to rail on them too? What do you want from these guys? He’s a role model, a good person, and has never been in any trouble. Hard to say that about a lot of athletes today.
    Good game, Warner. You will truly be missed.

    Classey guy and you will NOT hear the un prefix.
    Favre take a hint, go out like a man and not a slobbering kid.
    Kurt, much success to you and yours.

    I agree with Danc!

    he has a future in the HOF

  11. knightsroundtable says: Jan 29, 2010 7:22 PM

    Well said Kurt. Job well done. God has blessed you well. And will continue.

  12. Ron says: Jan 29, 2010 7:32 PM

    Aside from Kurt being a class act, he was an all time great. Perhaps in the Top Ten all time at his position. Incredibly accurate, careful with the football, and elevated his game in the clutch. With the ball in his hands during the last two minutes of a game, you knew your team had a chance.

  13. gwinn1952 says: Jan 29, 2010 7:48 PM

    I think the big hit sealed the deal for his retirement. He will be missed….

  14. The Oven says: Jan 29, 2010 7:56 PM

    The only free speech liberals know is the type that fits their world view. Good for you Kurt.

    Don’t think he is a HOF, but he was fun to watch play the game. Class act, whether you believe in what he does or not. Realistically that belief is a strong foundation as to how he approached and played the game and also to why he is leaving now. If you knock a person for having beliefs on making yourself a better person and treating others well, then you are the one with the problem.

    Wow! A man for all seasons!

    I don’t understand why anyone would EVER say that Warner is not a HOF. Keep in mind that in every Super Bowl he played in, he either got his team the lead or tied the game at the end of regulation, only to sit on the sidelines and watch as his defense decided his fate.
    In Super Bowl XXXIV, the defense BARELY held on. That 71 yard bomb to Bruce would have been in vain, and if the game went to OT, then there would have been a good chance that the Titans won the toss and went right down the field without Warner ever touching the ball.
    In Super Bowl XXXIV, Warner rallied that team from 14 down to tie the score. All the defense needed to do was stop the Patriots, and they couldn’t. They let him down (I know that some may say this contradicts my point from the previous Super Bowl, but the Titans would have scored with no time left on the clock, whereas the Rams would have needed to force overtime by stopping the Pats).
    And last year, once again, Warner connected with Fitzgerald to take the lead away from the Steelers despite that gut-punching play at the end of the first half. What happened? His defense let him down again.
    If it wasn’t for Kurt’s defenses, then he would be a 3 time Super Bowl MVP and a first ballot HOF. Regardless of that fact, he STILL deserves to be in. God Bless.

    God speed Kurt, you were very fun to watch over the years. Sunday’s won’t be the same without you.
    Good luck in the future.

  20. Maverick says: Jan 29, 2010 8:53 PM

    Kurt Warner is and always has been a class guy. And I admire a person who stands up for his personal beliefs, whatever they may be, and isn’t ashamed of those beliefs.
    Sounds to me as if he has his priorities in order and I have no doubt he will be as successful OUT of football as he has been in the game.
    Definitely one of the “good guys” in the sport. Enjoy your new life and your family, Kurt.

  21. ninevel says: Jan 29, 2010 8:53 PM

    I wish Kurt the best. It was great watching him play. I saw him played Arena Football. He was so good, so accurate. It’s a great story — an american dream came true. Great player, Great person.

    For those who want to say Warner is a classy guy and Favre is not quickly forget how Warner lied and used the 49ers, who he never intended to play for, to get Arizona to pay him more than market value. Because of that, AZ was so tight against the cap that they couldn’t sign any more players in the 2008 season. Was most likely the difference between a SB win and loss that year.

  23. Fan of Football says: Jan 29, 2010 9:03 PM

    Terrell Davis deserves to be in the HoF before Warner ever gets consideration. If Terrell doesn’t get in because of the number of productive season, then neither should Warner.

  24. BwB says: Jan 30, 2010 12:56 AM

    Fan of Football-
    1. San Fran was going to sign him
    2. You love Brett Favre
    3. Get off his balls

  25. AbeFreshly says: Jan 30, 2010 1:05 AM

    Well, at least he’s going out on his own terms. It would’ve been nice to see him go out on top. He’s a class act…even if he DID say “it is what it is” @ the 2:36 mark.

  26. THE strobman says: Jan 30, 2010 1:14 AM

    after watching the video I had all my thoughts lined up to write down, then I noticed Danc basically said them for me. One of the classiest guys to ever play the game and I hope more players follow in his footsteps.

  27. veistran says: Jan 30, 2010 6:09 AM

    @Fan of Football: Warner was re-signed in 2009 not 2008 in ’08 he was in the last year of a 3 yeard deal he signed with AZ in 2006 so any cap trouble they had in 2008 had nothing to do with him.
    TD is going to face a much harder path to the HoF than Warner considering the number of “guys off the street” that Shanahan stuck in that system and averaged 4.5ypc and the number of guys who have better or similar career numbers coming up. Look at Priest Holmes, both guys careers are defined by a 3 year stretch of excellence. During those 3 year stretches the only thing TD has over Holmes is he was on SB winning teams. He scored less, he averaged slightly less yards per carry and slightly less yards from scrimmage. And Holmes did it on less total touches. The other thing they have in common is neither one is going to make the HoF.
    Warner comparatively has the stats to back it up when he’s up there in all-time yards, all-time TD passes, career passer rating, highest season passer rating, career completion percentage, most yards in a season, most games with 300 or more passing yards in a season, most years leading the league in yards per attempt.

    Kurt is a very humble and classy guy. I pulled for him in every game he played, with the exception of the one against the Saints. If he had been able to start his career earlier, he would have more achievements than even now. He is a very good role model and a good example of what sports figures can be. Drew Brees is the same: Humble, classy, and has been a God send to the city of N.O.
