Kurt Warner NFL Career Stats and Notes

Warner went undrafted in the 1994 NFL Draft. After a stint in the Arena Football League, he finally made it on to an NFL team with the St. Louis Rams in 1998.

His rise in the league started due to an injury to starter Trent Green prior to the 1999 season. Once given the opportunity however, he took full advantage like no other quarterback in history (more on this later). Warner played for the St. Louis Rams for six years. In 2004, he headed east to play for the New York Giants for one season. Warner then headed west and joined the Arizona Cardinals. He would finish out his career in the desert, retiring after the 2009 season. In 2017 Warner was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. 

 

 

 

 

 

Kurt Warner 1999 NFL MVP And Super Bowl XXXIV MVP Performance

To go from undrafted status, to playing in the Arena Football League, to backup to Hall of Fame isn’t the type of road travelled for 99 percent of NFL players. However Warner made the road to the NFL worth it. His meteoric rise was nothing short of amazing. In 1999 during his first season as a full-time starter, Warner threw for 4,353 yards and 41 TDs. He led the once downtrodden Rams to an improbable 13-3 record. The Rams completed their Cinderella season with a 23-16 Super Bowl XXXIV victory over the Tennessee Titans. Warner, who was the regular season MVP, went 24 for 45 for a then Super Bowl record 414 yards and 2 TDs. He would take home Super Bowl MVP honors.

During the next two years, the Rams were no longer a surprise team. They were a juggernaut offense that was called 'The Greatest Show on Turf'. Warner continued to put up historic stats not seen since Hall of Famer Dan Marino in the mid-1980s. In 2001 he threw for 4,830 yards and 36 TDs and won his second NFL MVP in three seasons.
