Starting the last game of the season this Sunday in place of the injured Matt Leinart has convinced the graying Kurt Warner (above, right) that “I feel like I have a lot of football left in me.” He says he’s committed to the contract he signed, and I’m sure the Cardinals will welcome his 10 fumbles in four starts.
Per Kent Somers of The Arizona Republic:
This year might have been his last shot to be a regular starter, and he contemplated retiring at the end of the season.
But after much thought he’s decided to return in 2007, although he left himself some wiggle room.
“I’m going to come back and play,” he said. “I want to play. I feel like I have a lot of football left in me. That’s my plan as of right now, not that that can’t change when the off-season comes around and me and family sit down. But I signed a contract to be here with the Cardinals. That’s where I go into the off-season thinking.”
As GC might say, God not available for comment.

Gozer the Destroyer, err, Brenda Warner had better stick around for the inevitable Ghostbusters 3.
Warner is a class act. His stats show he is one of the best QBs in the league–way above the league average. The Cards are a team that traditionally plays at football rather than actually playing football. Yet, Warner led them to one of their most exciting and best seaons in years.
Leinart has only played with “inspirartion” occasionally. He has not been impressive since getting his starting job in a Denny Green fit of incompetence. Through it all, Warner has remained a class act and has, in this season, proved he is still an MVP.
