Cardinals QB Kurt Warner Wrote a lengthy letter to me last weekend discusing the thoughts and actions that went on during the Cardinals 27-23 loss. Many comments are unbelievable, but are completely true.

Kurt Warner addressed the first problem was that he had was blurry vision that night from partying the night before, because they were supposed to be like the NY Giants. Kurt did not disclose his blood alcohol level, but it was reportedly around 13.

The second problem Kurt Warner had was reading the scoreboard. Because of his vision, he only saw the score, not the team, and had the assumption they were winning by many points.

The Third problem Kurt Warner had was a headache. The headache Kurt had was a combination of the Steelers pass-rush, and a hangover. Kurt said he tried to convince coach Ken Whisenhunt to replace him with Matt Leinart, but he wouldn't.

Kurt told me in a letter that he was also frustrated with Larry Fitzgerald being double covered. With Kurt, the saying wasn't when in doubt, throw it out. The saying for Kurt was, when in doubt, throw it up for grabs to Larry Fitzgerald. Kurt was unable to hit Larry that much, not because of the double coverage: he couldn't see him deep down the field because of his blurred vision.

After reading that letter, I felt the need to get this article out into the open so the public could see why the Cardinals lost.
