Kurt Warner has confirmed what we reported earlier in the week (via Schefter and others): he is retiring from the NFL. Warner is classy guy, tough as nails, and among the best to play the game this decade. His departure leads the NFC West wide open, but its too soon to write off Leinart, who performed at a decent level in his one start this year. He doesn't fit the offense they have run, but that doesn't mean it can't be adjusted to his strengths.
At any rate, the NFC West is open. High Hopes go below.
