I'm betting two years, 25 mil.

I doubt Jimmy Raye would have effectively utilized his talents in San Francisco.

Last I heard a discount was contingent upon re-signing Boldin

He will be 38 at the start of next season and he's getting bank. My hat goes off to him. Couldn't be a classier guy.

It could be worse, we could have signed a 38 year old QB to that kind of money. Wow, good for him.

Why? Rodgers didn't suck in GB, but they held onto Favre because he gave them a better chance to win. Same thing here. Warner's a better QB at this stage in the game, and Leinart has a chance to learn from a HOF QB until Warner takes a hit to the pelvis or retires at 40. The Cards have a chance to build a winning culture in their locker room, and a legit top 5 QB that's willing to take less money than he's worth in order to preserve some continuity and retain talent on their team. If they let Warner go in these circumstances, they would be complete dipshits.

When he retired, they gave the team to Rodgers and when Favre wanted back in, they decided it was too late.

Leinart HAD this team and lost it when he started sucking. Warner isn't owed anything by the Cardinals apart from the money in his contract. This is more a case of the Cardinals wanting the best player no matter how old. The Packers probably believed Rodgers was ready for at least a season or two and couldn't wait to give him the reins

I couldn't disagree with you more based on the performance of a team that made their first Super Bowl and playoff wins in forever, largely due to Warner's solid play. If they'd let him walk on the heels of last season after publicly agreeing to a deal for far less money than what he could have made with a division rival, they would have been crucified, and rightfully so.

Brett Favre in Green Bay or Kurt Warner in Scottsdale?

I am uncomfortable with the linkage of the words Warner and crucified

That could be debatable after the rather messy way things went down with Favre...

That said, Warner is all that franchise has in the way of playoff success. The fact that he hasn't been there as long is just as important as the history of the franchise, and Green Bay had a lot more going for it than just Favre both then, in the past, and now. Kurt Warner's the best thing that's happened to the Cards in a long time, and he's gone out of the way to accomodate them. He saved them from being another also-ran, and he's the face of the franchise, so whether you agree with it or not, they owe him a lot more than the money in his contract, and they know it which is why they resigned him.

The original point, though, is that the signing has everything to do with Warner and nothing to do with Leinart or how good/bad he is. If your best player (and the face of the franchise) is willing to work for below market value, you stick with him. That they have a first-round talent on the bench is just gravy, especially when you know that Warner's old and potentially a big hit away from retirement.
