Arizona Cardinals: Kurt Warner, a class act
Former Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this past weekend in Canton, Ohio
It should go without saying what a class act former Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner is. Here’s a reminder in case it slipped your mind.
This past Saturday night Warner was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame after failing on his first two tries, although he got very close last year. The third time was a charm.
Warner, who retired after the 2009 season, spent 12 seasons with the St. Louis Rams and the Cardinals. He started 10 or more games in just seven of those seasons which makes his induction even that much more special.
He got the Rams to the Super Bowl following the 1999 NFL season and defeated the Tennessee Titans. He then got the Rams back following the 2001 season but lost to the New England Patriots.
He would then lead the Cardinals to their only Super Bowl appearance following the 2008 season. They lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers, coming up about two minutes shy of winning.
In his speech on Saturday night, Warner had a lot to say. Everything he said only backed up what many people already knew. Warner was special on and off the field.
