Mano A Manning

Some people worry about the hopes of the Arizona Cardinals’ offense riding on an aging quarterback fresh off hip surgery, but we’re happy with Kurt Warner playing quarterback for the Redbirds. It might be a bit risky, but there’s a certain charm to starting the Chet Steadman of NFL signal callers.

If you want to watch Warner and the Cards in action, grab tickets for the team’s next home game against the Indianapolis Colts. The Sunday-night showdown at University of Phoenix Stadium should be an exciting game full of big plays. As formidable as Warner can be – dude threw for more than 4,500 yards last season – the Cardinals’ defense faces an equally capable QB in reigning NFL MVP and renowned corporate shill Peyton Manning.
