Cardinals will add Warner to Ring of Honor

Kurt Warner, the quarterback who led the Arizona Cardinals to their only Super Bowl appearance, will become the 14th person inducted into the team’s Ring of Honor.

Warner, with the Cardinals from 2005 through 2009, directed Arizona to NFC West titles in his final two seasons. The 2008 team advanced to the Super Bowl, losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers on a touchdown in the final seconds.

He had 22 career 300-yard passing games with Arizona and 22 consecutive games with a touchdown pass. He completed 65.1 percent of his passes for the Cardinals with a 91.9 passer rating, both franchise records.

The induction will take place at the team’s season opener against San Diego on Monday night, Sept. 8.

“I think now is the right time, especially with this being the first year of his eligibility (for the Pro Football Hall of Fame,” Cardinals President Michael Bidwill said at a news conference. “The first game on national television, we think it’s the right time, and he’s definitely the right player. You just look at his whole NFL career, but especially what he did here for the Arizona Cardinals.”

Warner also quarterbacked the St. Louis Rams to two Super Bowls, winning one of them but many felt he was past his prime when he arrived in Arizona.

“The thing that I always think about is how the Cardinal organization gave me an opportunity when not many teams out there were going to give me an opportunity,” he said. “The one thing that I always say to myself is, ‘I want to make sure that when a team invests in me, that they get their investment worth,”

The Cardinals were an NFL wasteland and Warner had been replaced with the New York Giants when he came to Arizona.

“A lot of people looked at the Cardinals organization and said, ‘Well, they’ll never get to this point,’” Warner said at news conference to announce the honor. “Everybody was looking at me and saying, ‘Well, he’s never getting back to that point.’ So I thought it would be a great marriage”

Warner is eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame this year. Eleven of the 14 people in the Cardinals Ring of Honor are in the Hall of Fame.

That group includes “some friends of mine — Dan Dierdorf and Aeneas Williams, all the Hall of Famers,” Warner said. “Just humbled to be considered in that group.”

“The franchise dates back to 1898. When you think about the men that are in that Ring of Honor, there are now going to be 14,” Bidwill said. “They are the best of the best, not just in the Cardinals history, but really in the league too, because as you know, 11 of those 13 are also in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. We hope that Kurt finds his way into the Pro Football Hall of Fame very soon. ”

Bidwill noted the work Warner and wife Brenda do with their First Things First foundation.

“It’s not only about the way that he performed on the field and with the class that he performed on the field,” Bidwill said, “but also what he did off the field.”

With Super Bowl XLVII just days away, Concierge Auctions is pleased to announce that former National Football League quarterback Kurt Warner, a Super Bowl record holder and sports broadcaster whose career is regarded as one of the greatest stories in NFL history, will sell his gated residence without reserve on February 27th during a live auction. Perfectly set on over one acre in one of Paradise Valley’s most exclusive neighborhoods, 6712 East Cheney Drive is a uniquely-designed contemporary estate with a convenient location near the exclusive Camelback Country Club. Originally offered for $5 million, the luxury property will be sold to the highest bidder in cooperation with Christine Donnelly of HomeSmart International.

“My family and I completely enjoyed living in this home, but it is time for us to move on,” stated Warner. “I’m relying on Concierge Auctions and Chrissy Donnelly to get the job done. I have watched and been impressed by Concierge’s success with selling other unique properties across the nation and am confident they will generate a fair price and a rightful new owner.”

Designed by renowned Phoenix architect Edward Chavez of Chavez & Associates, 6712 East Cheney Drive was constructed with dramatic living spaces framed with geometric built-ins, gently sloping curves and architecturally-designed elements. The circular driveway and stone fountain leads to a dramatic 24-foot-tall foyer, where a variety of elements come into play including custom circular glass. The estate contains six bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms, a state-of-the-art kitchen with a bar and breakfast nook and a formal dining room. There is also an office, gym, games/billiards room and multiple cozy living areas throughout. The dual master suites can be directly accessed by the home’s metal staircase or elevator. Expansive sunny balconies overlook the diving pool and fountains, which connects to a 62-lap pool and private spa. The dramatic landscape can also be enjoyed through a series of both panoramic and clerestory windows. Additionally, there is a one-bedroom, one-bathroom detached guest house, complete with a full kitchenette.

“This home is a one-of-a-kind work of living art,” Donnelly stated. “Once featured on HGTV’s Celebrity Holiday Homes, it’s dramatic and luxurious, perfect for entertaining guests and spacious enough for a large family. Its unique architectural design leads to so many interesting living spaces, while the fixtures and finishes add a luxurious touch that must be seen in person. The Warners spent many years raising their children here and have nothing but good things to say about the home and the area.”

Warner first achieved stardom while playing for the St. Louis Rams, where he won a Super Bowl MVP award. He also played for the New York Giants, and led the Arizona Cardinals to the Super Bowl in 2008. He owns the three highest single-game passing yards totals in Super Bowl history. As an ode to his talent, Concierge Auctions will host a Super Bowl Open House at the property on February 3rd, starting at 4pm.

The estate is a short eight-mile drive to the Scottsdale Airport, one of the largest single-runway airports in the United States, and 13 miles from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, which offers nearly 1,200 daily flights to major transportation hubs around the world.
