If you're an Arizona Cardinals fan, watching quarterback Derek Anderson try to throw a football on Sunday was hard enough. Watching the man he replaced -- and who many fans wish was still leading the team -- do the hustle on national television is just salt in the wound.

The Cards' former quarterback, Kurt Warner, is featured on this season of Dancing With the Stars. The debut was last night and it turns out Kurt's not a bad dancer.

But do football fans want to see their macho heroes do the Viennese waltz set to Bon Jovi's This Ain't a Love Song?

Seems about as emasculating as former Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka -- the face of tough, unadulterated manliness -- doing Viagra ads (yeah, that happened).

Check out Kurt's performance after the jump. It's rough, Cards fans.
