Warner's ceremony offers trip down memory lane

Kurt Warner was fidgety. He had played only one quarter of football in the past two weeks and that one quarter more closely resembled a preseason game for all the creativity it offered. Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt had elected to rest his starters for most of a lopsided, 33-7, regular-season ending loss to Green Bay because the game held no significance for the Cardinals. The NFC...

The Arizona Cardinals offense needs to pick up the slack

It seems like a long time ago that Kurt Warner brought his little piece of the greatest show on turf to the desert.
