WARNER HAS ENCOURAGING WORDS FOR MCNABB
The starting quarterback coming out of the visitors' tunnel tonight at Lincoln Financial Field has a pretty good idea of what Donovan McNabb is feeling right now, and there's a chance he might even offer some words of encouragement for his beleaguered peer.


Kurt Warner, a Super Bowl champion and two-time NFL MVP, knows what it's like to be benched in the middle of a game. He knows what it's like when people don't think you can play the game anymore at a high level. And now he knows how good it feels to be considered among the elite again.

"The one thing I would say [to McNabb] is just keep the faith, keep believing in what you can do, keep believing in the Lord above," Warner said during a conference call Tuesday. "The one thing I always realize is the cream rises to the top. I believe he's one of those guys that is the cream of the crop."

Warner, 37, comes into tonight's game against the Eagles as the league's second-rated passer. He has thrown 21 touchdowns and eight interceptions. His team is 7-4 and can clinch its first division title since 1975 and its first playoff berth since 1998. Warner's resurrected career is a huge reason why.

"Obviously, it's fun to be able to be back on a team that's winning with a chance to get to the playoffs," Warner said. "I didn't know if this time would come again. When I left New York and I came here, I was hoping I could establish myself here and then obviously some things happened that first couple of years. We didn't really have a great team put together and we struggled. Obviously, they always looked at the quarterback first, so when I was benched here, I did kind of wonder if I would ever get the chance to have a team that would commit to me for that long haul."

Mostly by accident, the Cardinals became that team. The plan was for Matt Leinart to be the quarterback, but when he suffered a season-ending collarbone injury five games into last season, Warner took over and played so well that the Cardinals would have been foolish not to let him compete with Leinart for the starting job this season.
