    Nothing against what was said.

    But it would have been nice, if he came out with the, "I hurt QBs, that's what I do" attitude. To me, he came off more, "I hate to do it, but I will, If I have to" kind of thing.

    I like Kurt Warner. Hell, I like Peyton Manning. But I really like seeing them run for their lives.

    "It'll be a test for both of us to see who can get it done and who can't.”

    "Who is earning their big off season free agent contract and who isn't" is what I read. Not that this one game will sway my entire opinion of him but it sure is the first on the checklist.

    He's done next to nothing this year. I'm sure the Cards are much more concerned about the guy on the other end of the line.

    Everybody's different. My guess is if he were in a similar situation, Mario would be very understated about it. It wouldn't cause me to be concerned in any way shape or form that he doesn't take it seriously, or that he might not be properly motivated.

    The reality is a players personality is what it is, and it tells you little to nothing about what's really going to happen, because they're going to revert to their true personality almost all of the time. I remember two years ago (during the season that ended up 5-11) Ray Lewis acting like a crazed and injured animal. It was probably sincere (after all, that's who Ray is), but it didn't help them win games at that point in time.

    I care about results and performance, not words. (BTW, the same holds true about press conferences - I think it's absolutely ridiculous that folks read so much into the way coaches act/respond in those). You win or you don't, and how you "sound" before or after makes no difference.

    I love both Manning brothers! I always draft them on my fantasy teams.
