As far as all-time success stories go, you have to rank Kurt Warner‘s story right at the top. Warner came from basically nowhere to become a 2017 Pro Football Hall Of Fame inductee.  This one-time grocery bagger played in the Arena League for three seasons.  Warner later got his chance to play in NFL Europe.  He was tearing it up there, when he got his shot with the St. Louis Rams.

I think you know the rest.

Trent Green gets injured, and Kurt Warner leads the rams to a 13-3 record, and a Super Bowl XXXIV victory. The offense came to be known as the Greatest Show On Turf.

Kurt won the NFL MVP that year, and he also won the award again for the 2001 season.  Warner played with the Rams from 1998 to 2003.  After a so-so year in 2004 with the New York Giants, Warner signed with the Cardinals in 2005.  After mediocre years in 2005 and 2006, he started to come along in 2007.

Then came the 2008 season.

Warner led the Cardinals to Super Bowl XLIII, but ended up losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers in one of the most exciting Super Bowl Games in history.  Hey, if the defense makes a couple of plays, the Cardinals may have won that game.

Warner ended his 12 year pro football career as a 4-time pro bowler, with 32, 344 passing yards and 208 passing TD’s.
