Hope Warner's healthy and available. Seeing two former MVPs and future Hall of Famers, who number 78 years between them, would be matchless.

Might want to hold off on starting Kurt this week. If he goes up against that Vikings D, the guy could end up worse than Troy Aikman. Did anyone else think the announcing on Sunday was horrible? Troy didn't see any pass interference on Berrian when his right arm was twisted behind his back by the defender? I'm getting off topic, but honestly, I'm worried about the health of Kurt. Don't start, you want something left in that brain of yours!

The Cardinals have two games on the 49ers and Leinart's a pretty decent QB in his own right, so I'm sure Warner won't go unless he's healthy.

I was thinking the same thing... Why would Kurt want to risk his health-maybe even his sight-over football? He has had a great career-hang up the cleats, Kurt.

If he's healthy, though, he's still performing well as a starter: 67 percent completions, 20 TD's, 11 INT's, and rated 9th among 33 in QB efficiency (ahead of Flacco, McNab, and Romo).

I'm no doctor- but if I had a injury to the head that made my vision blurry-and the Doc's could not explain it-I WOULD QUIT.

Heck, it is not like the guy will starve...

If I recall, Leinhard was their 1st round draft pick.
Doesn't hurt to give him some play-time while Warner heals up. I think they're pretty much got the division with ease... And a first round bye is basically out of their reach. So the Cards can basically sort of coast out the remainder of the season... Til playoffs start.

FYI -- Cards had the worst record out of all playoff teams and still made it to the big-game...

Self-correction: It was the winter before Childress' first season here that he COMPLETELY ignored the availability of Drew Brees (he dumped Culpepper, which was fine, but felt we were 'all set' with Brad Johnson and Jackson as the backup)- 2006. I didn't chime in here to add to the Childress-bashing yet again. Even that grows very tiresome, and though we're not 10-1 because of him, it's his watch and we are 10-1. Fine. We know he can't motivate (a total deadpan who stays out of Favre's way as the impressive Vikings machine goes to work every week and rolls up wins), call plays and didn't bring Favre here (Bev and Frazier, not to mention many offensive and defensive players drove that, for real). What reminded me of this was not just seeing Brees shred the Pats tonight (the Pats aren't well - I get that, but part of that, tonight, was Brees and his incredible accuracy, though while under no pressure which I hope we can change), making New Orleans the BIG favorite to win the super bowl, but seeing Chris McCallister on the Saints sideline, signed by Shawn Payton to add depth to the teams secondary - something just a little important in the post season when a team hopes for a championship run. Childress had weeks to consider signing this guy after Winfield got injured versus the Ravens (no good corners available in free agency at the time? Like hell). While we've held our own in the secondary since, making his decision seem reasonable in a sense, knowing that this Vikings team has problems in the secondary (Griff not great - soft corner, plays well off. Hoping for more Asher Allen - hell of a talent, but inexperienced for the post season. Winfield deserves a solid, experienced complementary corner opposite him), it would appear NOT wise to have ignored McCallister. I and many others blogged on this at the time - pretty simple equation (How dare we question this coach? Without NFL coaching experience ourselves, who the hell do we think we are? ANSWER: One doesn't need NFL experience to judge a partisan, egomaniac, though I would say Payton's decision lends just a little credence to the argument, now doesn't it, Childress-worshipers?). In the post-season, this error could well be exposed and come back to haunt the Vikes. Think of Brees versus Paymah - plus, our slightly ineffective safeties and you'll awaken to the same concern, I am confident (most will - the witless Las Vegas rectum who *lives* in the Pioneer Press domain like a sewer rat will remain hopelessly stupid on this point, I would "bet";-) No job + no education=no good, AC.

The key to a Vikings NO matchup, IMHO, will be the Vikes pass rush. If they can get to Brees and throw him off his game, the Vikes will win. Last night, the Patriots barely touched Brees. He had tons of time to allow his receivers to get open. He is too good a QB in that scenario. All the other matchups work in the Vikes favour.

No umbrage taken. And we agreed on the grade for that rambling attempt at profundity.

I am a Viking fan. I hope Kurt Warner does not play. I admire him whether he plays or not. He does not have to prove anything. I know this game is more important for the Cardinals, but I think it would be better to have a healthy quarterback when the playoffs come around. The Vikings pass rush is awesome and I think if he does play, it is a tremendous risk to take after a concussion. Vikings will dominate.
