I wouldn't say he's an upgrade over either but he might be right there with them if he can stay healthy and keep Leinart on the bench.
If Warner is the definite starter I would say he is an upgrade over both. Warner knows the offense and has proven he can produce with it; Favre is on a new team and Hass is missing most of his receivers. If you extrapolate Warner's 07 stats from the games he started (10) to a full season he would have had ~4,500/35; if he is the starter the whole year I think he could come close to that.
The management seems to really want Leinart but if they want to win they will need to start Warner; hopefully it won't turn into a QBBC circus as in 07 before Leinart was injured. It would be nice if Warner was the definite starter week one when they play SF; in 07 Warner went for 484/2TD vs them.
