Does anyone see the Cards trading up for Rodgers or Smith? If so, Warner could be a great "insurance" slash "trainee" type QB that he was in NYG.


I don't know...I'm pretty sure he isn't (or wasn't) going to go anywhere if he wouldn't get the starting job. That's what he was whining about last year, and that's why he wanted out of NY.

I could see them pulling a NY though...start him for the first half and then work the new guy in once they're out of it. That would make me laugh. :-b

Boldin and Bryant Johnson is a nice duo.
Toss in my boy, uberstud Lurry Fitz, and you have an amazing trio.

All Warner has to do is get em the ball.

That's what I'm expecting to happen... ;-)

If they do get a new guy via Draft, I expect they'll pull a NY.

I wouldn't count on them getting one of the QBs, they don't have the horses to trade up in the draft.

1 year 4 million dollars? Interesting move by the Cards.

Warner won't be bad if he has time to throw; if not, he'll lose the handle and throw a bunch of picks.

Yeah, I agree. I bet the big selling point for Warner was somebody mentioning, "Sure you can start . . . . .". And who knows what else they were going to say, before Warner grabbed the contract and signed on the dotted line. I mean it could have been:

"Sure you can start working on our young QB's talent"

"Sure you can start, during preseason"

"Sure you can start cleaning the restrooms from last season."

If anything, I'd say any of the success the Giants had this year offensively can be attributed to Warner. He wasn't putting up the numbers, but was effective enough to let Tiki run wild because defenses respected his pass threat.

The Giants were a winning team before Warner got yanked, could've easily made playoffs, and Tiki was on pace to dust Alexander and Martin. Then Eli got put in, and the season went down the drain.

I think Brad Johnson would've been better (especially as a starter), but adding Warner when you have virtually no talent at QB is not a bad move.

Very Nice pick up. He should do well now that he has some good receivers. He did a decent job last year even with a horrible line and receivers that couldn't get any separation. He should

Man, I loved Warner when he led us to the Super Bowl. You could say he was a product of the system, but his accuracy and leadership skills were undeniable. It was sad to see him hit such a sharp decline and undergo a painful QB controversy.

I honestly believe the guy is still serviceable. He's not ideal starting material, but he is more than worthy as a backup or mentor. Warner was prospering in New York last year, had they kept him in they would have made the playoffs. Although rushing Eli in might help in the long run, I don't think it was best decision for the Giants at the time.

Nice pickup, I wish Kurt(and Brenda) the best. :-)
