ESPN.com NFC West blogger Mike Sando wrote a nice little piece on Cardinals QB – and greatest person ever – Kurt Warner that explored Warner’s health and general ability to stay healthy. Sando’s primary takeaway was that Warner is not nearly as brittle as some may suggest. In fact, Warner hasn’t missed a start (he missed most of the ’07 Panthers game after being injured on like the 3rd play) due to injury in the last three seasons. Of course, I feel pretty good about all of that because (as anyone that knows me is aware) I’m just about the biggest Kurt Warner homer this side of Jesus Christ. I even predicted his 30 TD season before 2008 began (never mind that I predicted the same thing in 2004, 2005 and 2006). So why the concern from Scott Howard? It appears Warner has old man arms.
I’m hoping that the photo is just playing tricks on me or perhaps the weird appearance of his skin was caused by the grass in the Super Bowl. But, it’s probably just wishful thinking. Whether his arm looks like my Grandpa on his 82nd birthday or not I’ll love him forever and always. Shine on Kurt. Shine on.
