CANTON, OHIO — There will be lengthy debate about QB Kurt Warner when he becomes eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
We kicked it around yesterday during Gil Brandt‘s Hall of Fame chat. But one thing that we did not realize was that Warner was already in the Hall of Fame. Or at least his jersey is.
Warner’s jersey that he wore on his record-setting day on Sept. 20, 2009 is prominently displayed at the Hall. Warner completed 24 of 26 passes for 243 yards and two touchdowns in a win at Jacksonville, setting a record for completion percentage in a game (92.3 percent) breaking the previous mark held by Vinny Testaverde.
The Hall of Fame has a number of displays that it rotates in and out. Some exhibits even go on the road.
And for the record, Warner should be enshrined to the Hall of Fame, but that is a debate we can pick up on another day.
