this is a lot of fun to watch, trying to remember how little we knew about what was going to happen. I mean, obviously, the Rams had SIGNIFICANTLY upgraded that team in the offseason but they built around Trent Green at QB and nobody knew who the fuck Warner was.
AND....he doesn't do all that well in the early parts of this game! bad INT in the red zone. you figure you're seeing a backup doing a decent job but making 'rookie mistakes' until much later in the game.

i guess you gotta go to youtube to watch it. it's the opener in 1999, edited for flow.
this was the beginning of one of the shittiest eras of football, after the old guard at QB almost simultaneously retired and were replaced by terrible players until the draft started finally producing gold again by the 2010s. so having Kurt was like an homage to some of the players who just retired
