Remember how the media and the drunk white fans had written Kurt Warner off as finished five years ago after he and the Rams offense struggled a bit?Warner had won two MVP awards in a three-year period after not getting his opportunity in the NFL until he was 27, yet "Warner can't hold onto the ball, Warner is too slow to react to pressure, Warner has taken too many hits" became the party line. It's impossible to imagine a black quarterback who was so unexpectedly and fantastically successful so eagerly being thrown to the wolves. Warner is one of the greatest pure passersto ever playin the NFL. He has a very strong arm but he's alsovery accurate, as his career marks of 65.1 completionpercentage and a 93.2 quarterback rating attest. I'm sorry to see Matt Leinart struggle andwould like to seem him havea successful career, but in the meantime I hope Warner has another big year at the age of 37 and puts it to the critics who were so eager for him to fade away years ago.
