Soooooooo. This was one whale of a game now wasn’t it? Mercury moving from retrograde to direct played a HUGE role in the last few minutes. First of all, on the personal foul against James Harrison, where he was auditioning for The MMA, he probably should have been ejected. I also think that some very close calls, especially the last Cardinals play where Warner was moving his arm forward and wasn’t reviewed, could have been caught in the transition of Mercury’s shift. Just as in the last Super Bowl that Pittsburgh appeared in, it seemed as though the zebras might have had a vested interest. I would like to quote my own post regarding Kurt Warner, when I looked at his chart.
“In some ways, I see this as being a contest of biblical proportions. Don’t expect to witness an efficient and methodical performance from the former Iowa Barnstormer. Warner will either rise to some epic moment, or be forced to deal with the crushing weight of defeat. Remember, comeback is the name of the game and it will either happen in game or after, when he’ll have to resurrect himself from the burning embers of alchemical fire.”
Warner just hinted that he might not come back. There was an undercurrent of doubt about his future in a post game interview.
What a game. . .
