Is there a more beloved figure in the history of the St. Louis Rams than Kurt Warner? His is the ultimate Horatio Alger story, a grocery store stock boy playing on the side in the Arena League, thrust into the starting role and leads one of the most prolific offenses to the Super Bowl ... the only Super Bowl win in franchise history.
You can imagine what it's like to hear him say this:
A knife to the heart. A kick to the gut. A baseball bat over the head. All of those things might hurt less.
The breakup between the Rams and Warner wasn't a good one. Even with new coaches, a new front office and a new owner, those feelings are hard to repair.
When the Rams dumped Spagnuolo et al, there was supposed to be an effort to reconnect with past players. They have done that. Just ask Torry Holt who comes back to Rams Park to work with the young receivers. Apparently they have a little more work to do with Kurt Warner.
