Kurt Warner – Rams/Giants/Cardinals:
Quite possibly the NFL’s greatest “feel-good” story of all-time, Warner went from working at a grocery store (not that there’s anything wrong with that) to taking the NFL by storm in 1999. He had previously been a gun-slinging signal caller for the Iowa Barnstormers of the Arena League.
Warner won the Super Bowl with the St. Louis Rams that year as the commander of the “Greatest Show on Turf.” He threw for 4,353 yards, 41 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions when starter Trent Green went down in the preseason. But his success didn’t stop there, as he racked up two NFL MVP awards, two First-team All-pro selections, and four Pro Bowls. He was the Super Bowl MVP in 2000. Warner very nearly won a Super Bowl with Arizona later in his career. While they came up short, he still passed for 32,344 yards, 208 touchdowns, and 128 interceptions in his career. That was good for a 93.7 passer rating. Warner was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2017.
