I knew something about today felt just a little more sacred. Whatever you want to call him – the gloved one, Jesus Warner, or dreamboat (as I call him) – it’s Kurt’s 38th birthday today. As a Cards fan it’s possible you’d think I’m nervous that Warner is at such an advanced age but take this on for size – the guy has been riding with Christ as his co-pilot for most of his adult life. So 38 in Jesus years is what? 29 in Leinart years? Either way – happy birthday Kurt – may you lead us to more wins (and another division title…maybe NFC title? how about Super Bowl?) in 2009. (more…)

Bill Williamson – ESPN’s 10th ranked writer based on looks (as prepared by reputable political website SoD) – recently offered his argument in ESPN.com’s “Double Coverage” that Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman is more essential to his team than Patriots QB (Steamy White Looks?) Tom Brady is to his. No seriously.
Now I realize that it’s June 10th and the NFL writers need something to do – but did they really need to force Merriman v. Brady down our throats? Both players missed most of the 2008 season and that’s about where the comparison should end. Sure the Chargers went from 11-5 in 2007 to 8-8 in 2008 without Merriman and sure Merriman is a 3-time Pro Bowler and 2006 All-Pro – but more valuable than Brady? In case you’ve forgotten let me throw a few stats at you: (more…)
After a 2nd day of the NFL Draft in which the Cardinals filled needs (offensive line, Aaron Francisco replacement), I was most curious about one of the undrafted free agents they signed. The Cards inked Florida State CB/KR Michael Ray Garvin, who at the FSU pro-day was timed at 4.24 and 4.28. As 40 times go that puts Garvin in a league with only this young Mexican fellow:
There’s probably a reason this guy went undrafted but at a minimum you’ve got to be intrigued by the speed. Plus he looks like He-Man.
This morning it was announced that Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald and Steelers S Troy Polamalu would grace the cover of EA Sports Madden 2010. I’m a little torn here. Obviously if this ends with Polamalu falling prey to the “Madden Curse“, I am in full support, since you know, he is an awful person and I still haven’t even forgiven him for this, much less the Super Bowl. But if this ends up with Fitz going down with a season ending injury in preseason, combined with the inevitable 2009 Kurt Warner injury (I’m projecting old-itis), and I’m forced to watch Brian St. Pierre chuck it to Early Doucet in Week 15 next year, I’m coming for you, EA Sports.
Some of you may know J.D. Roth, some of you may not. Those that do may know him from his new show “Opportunity Knocks” on ABC. If so, you should be ashamed of yourselves. Others may know him from the single-greatest children’s game show of all-time — a little show called Fun House. What you may not know, however, is that J.D. has stopped aging.
