In 2004, when his players revolted during his first season with the Giants (http://www.nj.com/giants/),
coach Tom Coughlin had only one real friend in the locker room
veteran quarterback Kurt Warner, a former superstar who paused in New
Jersey before starting the second chapter of a storied career.......

true but it couldnt hurt to show some What Kurt really was, as a human even more than a football player.

your welcome. I liked this story a lot also. I think that having Kurt even for that one year helped both ELI and TC.

i have no idea if this is true, but theirs apparently a rumor Warner is going to run for political office or that its a goal of his.
guy is a good dude or at least seems that way, but I got to say, he seems like he's trying to give off this good guy image, like he's trying really hard to come off the way he does...and u know what that usually means about a guy like that in his private life...just ssaying...

and how silly of us, of course our success is due to warner, just ask him. lol, warner has to be the center of attention at all times, now i get why he felt he was all of the sudden the judge jury and executioner of who makes the HOF, and now I understand why we won 2 sb's, bc of kurt warner and his crazy, never before heard of idea; show the players u care.

man, kurt warner would make the perfect politician. starting to believe my buddy about that

Nice article.

And along we were led to believe we had Tiki to thank for the changes in Tom. Go figure...

Great read.

Isn't it just amazing what we common folk miss that is left behind closed doors? Makes you wonder what other great things we are left out on.

Funny how the bashing never ends. Even when this comes out among a million pre-superbowl articles.

Personally, I have zero doubt that Kurt was a positive, not a Tiki Barber influence on this team and well worth him being in New York for a season.

Thanks, Harooni for the post.

I agree , Kurt is just a good person as well as player. and i think tiki did help and also Strahan,

i think a few had an effect on Coughlin and his change as he was well disliked in jaksonville by the players.

No Kurt is not taking credit for our SB's. its just a nice story.

thx for reading it.

Heard TC talk about this during SB week. Good stuff. I am not surprised at all by Warner's support for his coach. Say what you will about him but Warner is truly a giving and caring person. </P>


I have a friend of a friend who works high up in the Giants FO. From what I was told TC is everythig that was described about him being a family man. Not only with his family but with the players kids and families as well. I hear at organization parties that TC is every kids "grandpa" there. </P>


Its good to hear...</P>

Warner's a great guy and fans on these boards have been too tough on him, IMO, for stating his opinions about Eli and the HOF stuff. He never said anything maliciously and has no reason to be "jealous" of Eli for a second. He just gave his own opinion, and he's well informed and reasoned. Personally, I believe that Eli will be HOF if he continues on his current path.

I heard that on NFL network couple weeks ago.
Hard to beat up Kurt. Stand up Guy. He gets paid to attract listeners so you gotta take what he says with a grain. But hard to find someone to say something bad about him personally or professionally.

Imagine a pro like that and Eli took his seat! Says alot bout 10
WOW

I live here in phoenix and I can tell you hands down that its not fake. Ive run into him at several charities around here and he is one of the most honorable people I have ever met.

Great post....and yeah, Kurt wasn't here long, but he handled himself with a ton of class, and obviously, made a big difference.</P>

do you know why i really admired Kurt? it wasnt just his hair.

I went to the skins / giants game at fed ex field, we were down and Warner was waving his towel around getting in the players ears trying to get them pumped, all the while he was benched in favor of Eli. that showed he was a good team guy and handled the situation with class.

I bought his Giant jersey and all after that game.

I was very happy when Kurt found a 2nd life in Arizona....I always pulled for that guy.</P>


But yes, he's always had a nice head of hair, too. He's got that going for him....which is nice.</P>
