Kurt Warner Traded To Chicago ?

According to our St Louis sources although not 100% confirmed, there is a strong rumour out in St Louis that St Louis Rams QB Kurt Warner has just been traded to Chicago for a late round pick in 2005 . Warner who some rumored to be a June 1st cut has just restructured his deal with St Louis to be traded to Chicago. The key in negotiations for this apparent deal has been former Rams Defensive Coordinator and now current Bears head coach Lovie Smith. Stay tuned for more details on this developing story.

Are you displeased with Grossman? Trade him to the Packers, I'm sure they would take him off your hands.

Makes perfect sense considering who the coach of the Bears is. I'm gonna make a leap of faith in my logic here... Since Lovie Smith knows the current Kurt Warner better than all but 1 head coach right now, I consider this an endorsement of his abilities. If he were damaged goods, Lovie would've told the front office so.

Jay, I'm sure you're with me on this, but I was concerned that he might wind up in Dallas. I hope this rumor is true. If the Boys are gonna try anyone else, let it be Collins.

I don't think that the rams would take a cap hit if they trade him before june first, only if they cut him before then. and as for the bears not having confidence in grossman, I don't think that is the case. kordell is gone, and it's just smart to have a veteran back up in case of injury. though he does also make a nice insurance policy if grossman falls flat on his face. Which I strongly, strongly doubt by the way.

I hope this is wrong! I think Mrs.Warner's husband would be a great fit in Chicago. Lovie needs help instilling his offensive schemes and the Professor, Skipper and Gilligan aren't the answer. But Mrs. Warner's husband would be able to help Grossman learn and could regnite the end of his career there. Mrs Warner would fit in nicely there since Kordell has already paved the way for acceptance of alternative lifestyles.
