Kurt Warner feels "a little responsible" for Cardinals situation

On Sunday, Cardinals quarterback Max Hall will become the first undrafted rookie to start at his position this early in the season since the 1987 player’s strike, according to research done by Bob Young of the Arizona Republic.

The Cardinals offense is a mess, and their former quarterback feels guilty.

“You
can’t help but feel a little responsible,” Warner told Paula Bolvin of the Arizona Republic. “You don’t know
if you should feel that way, but I’m still connected to the team. I did
what I felt was right for my situation, yet there’s also the part that
wishes I could help.”

Then again, maybe the Cardinals aren’t in such bad shape.  SI.com’s Peter King has an intriguing profile on Hall’s rise to the starting job.  He may not have the biggest arm, but he’s accurate, mature, makes good decisions, and works hard.  Remind you of anyone?

“Max
Hall is Kurt Warner 12 years ago,” Warner told King.  “Nobody expected me to make it when I showed up in an NFL camp.

No pressure, buddy.

    The anti-Favre?

    Why, did Warner draft the Cardinals’ next QB? At least the guy knows when to call it a career, unlike some has-been pervert quarterbacks *cough*Brett Favre*cough, clears throat*

    Where is Mike Florio’s post about Kurt Warner calling a Cardinals game? Especially since Kurt Warner is admitting to feeling responsible for the Cardinals situation and that he’s still connected to the team . . .

    When your QB is 39 years old, you have to be prepared for the possibility that he will leave soon and start grooming your next starter. It’s not Warner’s fault the team put their eggs in Matt Leinart’s basket, even though they apparently had little confidence in him.

    Kurt Warner didn’t draft Leinart

    I have always thought that Whisenhunt is a very good coach who knows what he is doing …. kind of the exact opposite of Josh McDaniels.
    It is one thing to bench a bust like Matt Leinart and know what to do with Kurt Warner in order to get to the playoffs and Super Bowl and quite another to be able to evaluate the talent of an undrafted rookie and make hime the starter.
    In other words I think Whisenhunt’s reputation is on the line with this move.
    I am betting on Max Hall doing well in the NFL. They don’t call him “Whiz” because he is stupid.

    the only person who should feel responsible for the cardnial’s problem is whisenhunt. he had a young qb when he took over the team who he did not like and never gave a fair shot to. rather than letting him learn on the job he gave the job to warner and now is shocked he has nobody to replace him?let’s see if he pulls hall when he throws a pick in a game or calls him out after for any mistake he makes like he did the qb he ran out of town. he won’t because this kid was his choice, he does not have to worry if he makes a mistake he will lose his job. something tells me if he checks down instead of throwing it deep he will be called call smart instead of being ridiculed for not taking a chance. they deserve what they have and get no sympathy from me and except for the superbowl I have never rooted for them.

    Finally! I’ve thought since training camp that Hall should be the guy… Although Anderson had some bright moments, he couldn’t help Romeo in Cleveland either. Sometimes you gotta work with what you got.. and in this case you gotta lot to work with with Hall.
    Go Cards!

    Okay, but before you go putting Wiz in Canton, truth be told, Wiz wasn’t thrilled about giving Warner the job either. But he had no choice. Thank the football Gods that it all worked out… Just like I think oh Maxy Boy will…
    Go cards!

    They don’t call him Whiz because he’s smart.
    He cut his best quarterback. Sounds closer to stupid than smart.
    Arizona deserves a 4-12 record.

    One of the things that you continue to overlook is that until they got some better players, Leinart’s record with Arizona was considerably better than Warner’s. If Green had been allowed to stay around, he would have given Leinart a chance but Whisenhunt had no intention of doing that and that’s been the story since he got there.
    Unless Hall magically develops an arm, he’s a right-handed Leinart, who will be forced into getting rid of the ball quickly because of the pass rush and the inept OL.

    This kid has no shot…
    “he may not have the strongest arm” is understatement of the year… he can barely get the ball 15 yards…

    Peter King’s player evaluation skills suck. Read his training camp stories this year predicting big things for Alex Smith and Matt Moore.
