Former N-F-L Most Valuable Player Kurt Warner says his faith and the message he shares with others has grown — even though his career has hit some lows. The last two years have been plagued by injuries and his benching as the starting quarterback for the St. Louis Rams. He says over the last two years he’s had more impact in going through the difficulties than he did when he was “on top.” Warner, a Cedar Rapids native, won a Superbowl with the Rams and says he still wants to be a starting quarterback. Warner’s gained praise for the way he’s handled his benching without becoming a problem for the team. At an event in Des Moines with his wife, Warner was asked why God would let him go through the down times. He says the last two years have been two of the greatest in their lives outside the football field. He says that’s why it’s been allowed to happen so he can be an example for God and show that God stays consistent whether you are up or down. Warner says if anything, the spotlight on him has been brighter since he went from top quarterback to backup.He says only so many people can relate to winning a Superbowl. He says a lot more people can relate to the times when you’re going through difficulties. He says that’s what their life has been alot, before he made it in the N-F-L he says their lives were a daily struggle. Warner says he wants to show the importance of continuing to put God first in your life no matter what happens to you.
