    He may not have been a Brett Farve, Dan Marino, Joe Montana,Roger Stauback or Terry Bradshaw (all of whom I have loved over the years) but Kurt Warner was a damn good quarterback IMO!! No matter which team he quarterbacked for I enjoyed watching him play and am saddened that he has decided to retire. I wish him and his family all the best and hope to see him as a commentator on one of the networks. :razz: 'Bye Kurt!!

    I just read that Kurt Warner is retiring after 12 yrs in the NFL and although he was not a Brett Farve, Terry Bradshaw or Joe Montana he was a very good quarterback IMO! He is 38 yrs old and is thinking about becoming a commentator on one of the networks as well as a minister and I just want to wish him and his family all of the best. I enjoyed watching him play...he is one of my favorites along with Troy Aikman, Dan Marino, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees.:clap2: GO SAINTS! (I normally root for Indy but I think the Saints should win a Superbowl, the Colts can win again another year!!).

    p.s. I wrote this b/c the first one I wrote titled Kurt Warner was in the K's and I thought noone would see it!! Dang!!

    Kurt retired at a good time. Nice to see him go out at or near the top of his game.

    I don't understand the idolatry of people who do nothing but play a game.

    Its different here on a political board. I admire the man for his football. Not hero worship or anything like that though. Don't get me wrong, running for 1,000 yards doesn't make someone a hero or role model though.

    I wasn't hero worshipping I was just acknowledging that Kurt Warner was a good quarterback while he played the game. I would do the same for Brett, Peyton, Tom and the others that I like to watch playing. I am a pro-football fan...that's all.

    He's not just a great athlete, he's a great man. He has lived a truly inspirational life and is a positive role model.
    Here are some of the highlights of his career......
    I am sure he will be extremely successful giving speeches and making personal appearances. He's a classy guy with a great family. I wish him continued success!

    Kurt can be a bit "Ned Flanders" (from the Simpsons) like annoying, and his wife has had her moments on our local radio.

    But that's the only bad things I can say about him!

    IF I had the right to pick a pro-athlete to live next to me though it would probably be Kurt.
