Meet Kurt Warner, an American professional football quarterback who plays for the Arizona Cardinals in NFL. He is the second-most accurate quarterback in NFL history. See photos, video and a biography of Kurt here.
Warner was the hero of the Cardinals 29-24 win over San Francisco 49ers in a NFL match when he touched-down for the third time with just four minutes left in the game.
“It just seems like this year we’re getting some of the breaks in our favor,” Warner said in a televised post-game interview. “I think that’s a sign that we’re turning the corner as an organization.”
As a biography, Kurt Warner was born on June 22, 1971 in Burlington, Iowa so his age is 37. He played for the University of Northern Iowa and was awarded the Gateway Conference’s Offensive Player of the Year, when he started after a long time on bench.
Warner attended the Green Bay Packers training camp in 1994. When he couldn’t get into any NFL team, he took part in Arena Football League in 1995 and was named in the first team in 1996 and 1997. Finally, in 1998 he was signed-up by St. Louis Rams. His stint with them was the most glorious part of his career. He won two NFL MVP awards in 1999 and 2001. Kurt was also named the Super Bowl MVP in Super Bowl XXXI. His breakout season performance led Sports Illustrated to do a cover story on him.
He led Rams to Super Bowl XXXIV victory against the Tennessee Titans.
After leaving Rams in 2004, he joined New York Giants for two years. But, just after a year… he joined Arizona and was named the starter. Warner proved that his days as a NFL quarterback weren’t over and passed for 285 yards and touched-down thrice to beat his earlier team Rams by 38-28. He ended the 2007 season with 27 passing touchdowns. He is ranked second all-time in career passing rate (94.2).
In his personal life, Kurt is married to Brenda Carney Meoni.
