Cardinals Stint Gave Kurt Warner Canton Cred

As quarterback is inducted into the Hall of Fame, his Arizona years prove crucial to journey


Former Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner is being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Kurt Warner goes into the Hall of Fame Saturday night, the culmination of an incredible career that included three Super Bowl appearances, two MVP trophies and an NFL title.

"I just kind of felt it was a match made in heaven," Warner said of signing with the Cardinals. "Here's a guy that was never supposed to have success, had success, but now finds himself in a position where everybody says, 'OK, he's never going to have any more success and the best years are past him.'

"You couple that with an organization that people said, 'This organization will never have success, it's been 50 years and they have never found themselves in a positon where they are perennial winners or people epxtect them to compete.' I just thought, 'What a perfect fit at this point in my career.' "

Turns out, Warner was right.
