Kurt Warner led two of the three teams he played for to the Super Bowl. The Giants just wasn’t one of them. The MVP of Super Bowl XXXIV finished his career with over 32,000 yards and a career 93.7 passer rating.
For the Giants, he was used as a place holder for Eli Manning in 2004. Once Manning secured the position, Warner would join the Arizona Cardinals. Warner would again lead a team to the Super Bowl, but fall short against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Warner gets the nod after two previous years of eligibility where he was looked over.
Hall of Fame Worthy:
As a gunslinger, Warner is the ultimate rags to riches NFL story — a player who went from the grocery store to the Arena League to leading teams to Super Bowl berths.
Warner was selected to four Pro Bowls, two 1st Team All-Pro and is a two-time NFL Most Valuable Player awards. If the Giants had the same Warner that was revived in Arizona, what happens to Eli Manning? Does Warner win more than the two Lombardi Trophies that Eli brought to the Giants? It is a fair argument.
