Who would've predicted this. Kurt Warner, a 37-year-old veteren thought to be past his prime, leading the Arizona Cardinals down the field to go up three with just 2:37 left in Super Bowl XLIII.
At the beginning of the past two seasons, Kurt fought with Matt Leinart for the starting gig and was the backup for the first four weeks of 2007.
Leinart was named the starter again heading into the 2008 season, but by the end of August, Kurt proved to his coaches and team that he was the man for the job.
And did he prove his worth, or what? Last season, Warner had 4,583 passing yards, 30 touchdowns and a completion percentage of almost 70 percent.
He lead this team that time forgot, and apparently so did the rest of the NFC, within minutes of winning the biggest game in Cardinals history.
Kurt wowed the nation with a stellar 31/43 passing with 377 yards and three touchdowns.
Now this washed up-system QB is going to be around for another two years, preaching at midfield and making over $20 million.
