Is Kurt Warner for real? This guy is too good to be true. Of course, everyone knows about last year’s Cinderella story: Iowa stock boy leaves the local grocery to become the NFL’s MVP and win a Super Bowl. But Warner continues to defy the script. The MVP is supposed to hold out from training camp until he gets the big multi-million dollar, long-term contract he deserves. And frankly, Warner does deserve it after his performance last year. But instead of missing camp, Warner has signed for the league minimum, just so he can be in camp on time. His agent advised him not to sign, but Warner wants to be there. He doesn’t want to miss anything. He doesn’t want to let his teammates down. So he’s in camp with a contract that is a joke. Obviously, the Rams will give him a new deal before the season is underway, but Warner could be sitting at home waiting. One thing is obvious: Kurt Warner’s “aw shucks, Praise God” routine is no act. This guy is a true role model, and not because he can throw a football.
