So far: Not extremely well, from what I can tell. Don't worry, Gregg, once people get over the reactionary horror of that whole paying people to injure Kurt Warner for our ostensible amusement thing, I'm sure St. Louis will rally behind you just like New Orleans has for Sean Payton. Oh, and you'll have to win a Super Bowl for us, too. That'd definitely help. And maybe have not ended Kurt Warner's career. Definitely one of those two, is where I would start.
