When the Ravens and Joe Flacco agreed in August to put off negotiations on a long-term contract extension, the thinking was that the organization would wait to see what the quarterback could accomplish in the final season of the five-year contract that he signed as a rookie after he was selected in the first round of the NFL draft in 2008. Now that Flacco has averaged 284.3 passing yards, tossed eight touchdowns against zero interceptions, and posted a 114.7 passer rating in three postseason games, Kurt Warner thinks the Ravens are going to have to open up the wallet to retain Flacco.

Success can change a person, but it probably won't change Joe Flacco. Only a few hours after the Ravens beat the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII and the quarterback was named the game's MVP, Flacco appeared at a news conference where he was presented the keys to a new 2014 Corvette Stingray. Flacco seemed bashful when he posed for pictures, almost embarrassed. "Hey, if you say there's going to be some kind of celebrity with it, I'm cool with that, but I don't know if I'll ever be comfortable with it," Flacco said.

When the Cleveland Browns were looking for a quarterback in the expansion draft earlier this year, nobody was surprised that they bypassed Kurt Warner for former Maryland quarterback Scott Milanovich.After all, Warner had been bypassed all of his life.He didn't play at Northern Iowa until his senior year. He wasn't drafted and the Green Bay Packers signed him, but he admitted he wasn't ready for the NFL and was cut.It took three years in the Arena League and a season in NFL Europe for Warner to make the St. Louis Rams as a third-teamer a year ago, barely beating out Will Furrer.

Assuming the winning Super Bowl team's starting quarterback is the one who guides it to victory Sunday night, either the Arizona Cardinals' Kurt Warner or the Pittsburgh Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger becomes a slam-dunk for eventual coronation as a Hall of Famer. Hall of Fame voting has always smiled on Super Bowl victory. While individual accomplishments are obviously considered, winning the big game is crucial. Consider how many 1970s-era Steelers are there (10, including coach Chuck Noll)

Come Monday - as Jimmy Buffett once sang - either Kurt Warner or Ben Roethlisberger will be the proud owner of two Super Bowl rings. And because we live in a media culture that demands everything must be instantly analyzed as if the future of civilization depends on it, you're going to hear a lot of talk about how the winner has likely earned himself a bust in the Hall of Fame. Don't believe the hype. In Roethlisberger's case, it's simply too early to make any kind of judgment about his career.

To fully appreciate Sunday's epic showdown between MVP quarterbacks Brett Favre and Kurt Warner, you need to know about training camp, 1994. The Green Bay Packers' training camp, that is, where Favre, Warner, Mark Brunell and Ty Detmer all were working under soon-to-be genius Mike Holmgren. This overload of quarterbacking talent was no accident. Holmgren, the coach, and Ron Wolf, the general manager, collected them like bric-a-brac. Favre was in his third Packers season, one year away from the first of his three MVP awards.

NEW ORLEANS -- For all the attention given Tom Brady's ankle, Kurt Warner's ribs might pose the bigger problem in Super Bowl XXXVI. Warner suffered his injury late -- and some say needlessly -- in the St. Louis Rams' divisional playoff win over Green Bay two weeks ago, long after the issue had been decided. It was the most recent in a bizarre rash of injuries or ailments that has afflicted the Rams' MVP quarterback this season. Warner has endured an injured finger on his passing hand, bruised vocal chords, a stomach virus, back spasms and bruised ribs.

Kurt Warner's time arrived with the St. Louis Rams on the evening of Aug. 28 in a torrent of anguish, regret and disbelief. Quarterback Trent Green had just gone down with a season-ending knee injury in a preseason game. The Rams' aggressive off-season makeover suddenly looked pointless. The losingest team of the decade seemed consigned to lose some more. Embattled coach Dick Vermeil cried, perhaps sensing that his time in St. Louis was up. Into the middle of this maelstrom of emotion stepped Warner, 28, a veteran of NFL Europe (a league for marginal players)

Arizona quarterback Kurt Warner (right) is experiencing a second childhood, helped by a stellar receiving corps. Who's Matt Leinart?

The checklist of teams Marc Bulger expected to hear from last spring as a new free agent included all the usual suspects, but it did not include the Ravens. No need, no vacancy in Baltimore, Bulger assumed. But when the Ravens called the two-time Pro Bowl quarterback with the St. Louis Rams in May, he was -- in order -- surprised, intrigued, then sold. "They called out of the blue," said Bulger, whose nine-year run in St. Louis ended in May when he was released. "I was just going through the Rolodex in my head of teams who would be calling and who wouldn't.

One game into the 2009 season - a disheartening home loss to the 49ers - and the Cardinals were finished, history, kaput. Or so most of us thought. After all, eight of the previous 10 Super Bowl losers had missed the playoffs the next season, and why would the Cardinals be any different? Besides, the last time they made the postseason, they promptly tumbled off the table the next fall. So nobody could really argue with Fox's Jimmy Johnson when, during the Week 2 pregame show, he said the Cardinals were toast.

The closer Mike Holmgren gets to the end of his coaching career in Seattle, the more reluctantly he seems to be going. Recently, Holmgren said he might not be done with coaching and even raised a question about the sabbatical he has planned with his wife. Two weeks ago, he gave his version of how his divorce with the Seahawks took effect. Holmgren said he told the front office he probably would retire after the 2008 season, then went to Phoenix for a vacation with his wife. Upon his return, he told the team he might want to discuss an extension.

Meet Kurt Warner Kurt Warner of the St. Louis Rams rocked and shocked the NFL in the 1999 season. Kurt's terrific arm and cool confidence directed the Rams to their first Super Bowl victory in 45 years. He was named Super Bowl MVP. Kurt was the Ram's most valuable player all season. While he led his team to a 13-3 record, he was setting records of his own. He passed for 4,353 yards and 41 touchdowns. He is the first player since Dan Marino to throw for 40 or more touchdowns in a season.

If Week 5 was notable for anything yesterday, it was the triumphant return of Kurt Warner to St. Louis. If there were any messages delivered, one surely was authored by the Pittsburgh Steelers, who smacked the Seattle Seahawks silly despite a horde of marquee players in street clothes. On an ugly Sunday all around, quarterbacks took lickings and reunions were better for some than others. We'll start in St. Louis, where Warner, a one-time NFL Most Valuable Player with the Rams, went home to cheers, not jeers.
