    A few years ago while Warner was on that historic run to the SB with AZ the subject came up in the national media and it was pretty close to unanimous that he was. Jason Whitlock said something that stuck with me. Paraphrasing here he said you couldn't talk about the era Warner played in without talking about Warner.

    The only argument against him not being in are too small of a sample size. That doesn't carry enough weight.

    His story is like no other, and as others have said, the story of the NFL in the last 15 years could not be told without him. I won't mention the rest, cuz others have...But I ask you, how many years did Gayle Sayers play for the HOF Gold Coat?

    I disagree with Wagoner saying the sample size is too small.

    Over 4000 attempts, over 32000 yards, over 200 TD's.

    While it isn't an 18 year career it's not "small".

    Kurt Warner is by far a fist ballot hall of famer IMO. Two time league MVP, Super Bowl MVP, Super Bowl winner, two time NFC championship winner, Super Bowl appearance with the Cards.

    Dat's what I think, he's a movie waiting to be made, his fame should be greater than just football, every dreamer should see and know his story

    I wonder if he would ever sign off on a movie. I'd love to see the details of his story and not just the football part. Who would they cast as Warner? I can't think of any known actors that resemble him much.

    That's already in the works.

    Said Warner: “For so long people have told me my life story would make a great movie. I am humbled and thrilled to have found a team as excited as I am to make that happen.”

    FTFY.

    As someone mentioned, he also has the 3 highest passing yardage games in Super Bowl history, top 3 highest rated post season QB of all time, most TD's in one post season(11) and IMO, the greatest performance in a playoff game by a QB. Sure, Young had 6 TD's against the Chargers in the Super Bowl but I think that performance gets dinged because there wasn't any real competition. Warner had to play flawlessly for the Cardinals to beat the Packers that day since Rodgers and the Packers were putting up points in droves. 5 TD, 4 incompletions by Warner and a 51-45 victory.

    Not to mention his story. As unlikely and memorable as his rise from Hyvee stock boy to Arena League star to NFL Europe star to NFL MVP and Super Bowl champion...his rise from the ashes to take the Cardinals to the Super Bowl was arguably more impressive.

    You'd have to cover some tatoos:cool: but Ben Aflleck could pull off the look,Wahlberg could play Vermeil,Brian Cox as Martz,Diane Kruger as Brenda,Javier Barden as Beilicheat,and who else Jeff Fisher as himself.
    I just hope whoever does it doesn't try to make any ancillary points ,just tell his story and not some low budget stuff.
    Marc Wahlberg would be a great one to make that movie ,he shares Warners deep faith and wouldn't have a problem letting it be a part of the theme like many Hollywood people would.

    To put that in perspective a little, he's 46th all-time in attempts.

    8th in passer rating
    31st in TD passes
    4th in yards/game
    6th in yards/attempt
    4th in completion %

    No crap. Talk about an instant flop.

    Eric Bana would be my choice.

    You don't think the longevity argument is answered with his comeback to the Super Bowl?

    And of course there's:
    Super Bowl record for passing yards in a game:
    #1 Kurt Warner, St. Louis Rams. 414 yards
    #2 Kurt Warner, Arizona cardinals. 377 yards
    #3 Kurt Warner, St. Louis Rams. 365 yards
