    If Warner wanted out, he would've terminated his negotiations with the Cardinals. He doesn't want to go anywhere, he just wants to get paid.

    This giant tree, standing 10,000 ft. high but not
    Ouch.

    Sounds similar to some of the horror stories I've read about the Oilers of old.

    Heck Warner offered them a deal and said he would take some off to help get Boldin in

    I bet there's a hose running from the urinals to the drinking fountain just outside in the hallways.

    Sheesh. I bet they are still deducting that FedEx delivery cost as a business expense, though. Orgs like that are more crooked than a pig's you-know-what.

    Bidwell maybe worse than Bud Adams as an owner. Both deserve what they got in there only SB appearances.

    Bill Bidwell has always been a terrible owner

    There is a reason that franchise has been in 3 diff cities since Bidwell has owned them.

    Why is this so much different than the deal the Packers had with Farve last year ?
    They apperantly want to go with their young QB (Leinert) and not Warner.
    I guess it's OK for the Pack but not the Cards ?

    Warner should take the deal in San Fran.

    He should look and see if the Bears or Vikings are interested.

    yep, anything but the Cards at this point. I understand wanting to end his career there, all things considered, but they have yet to offer him a deal (even when he's giving a hometown discount). Cook or get out of the kitchen!

    The Bears are definitely not a bad choice. It seems that with a decent QB, they could really make some noise if their defense remains strong.

    The fact that the Cardinals reportedly had a $10 Million per year offer on the table to Warner indicates they don't want to go with Leinart, they just didn't want to pay what Warner considered to be Fair Market Value. That would mean if they let Warner go, it would be for financial reasons, and not football reasons. I don't believe anybody ever thought GB's decision to get rid of Favre was anything but a football reason.

    ESPN radio is now reporting Warner and the Cardinals have a greed to a two-year $23 Million deal.

    They had some bad luck with their D last year. Also, despite Matt Forte's 1200 + yards they were at the bottom of the league (24 in yards and 27 in y/a). Not to mention the passing game.
