Dancing With The Stars: Kurt Warner From NFL Quarterback To Dancing Queen
Kurt Warner has left the NFL but has hit the dance floor to take part in Dancing With The Stars.
Before joining the cast of Dancing With the Stars, Kurt Warner was an NFL quarterback who led two different teams, the Arizona Cardinals and the St. Louis Rams to the Super Bowl. He won the Super Bowl with the Rams and was the Super Bowl and two-time league MVP while with them. While Kurt Warner may be able to dance around the pocket and buy himself some time as he waits for a receiver to get open, that doesn’t mean he can dance on the ballroom dance floor, as we saw last week on the Dancing With The Stars Premiere.
Since Kurt Warner is a natural athlete, many expected him to pick up the dance steps pretty easy on this season of Dancing With The Stars. If he can memorize and entire play book and memorize opponent defenses, he should be able to learn a simple dance. It turned out it wasn’t that easy. Being a quarterback is a different skill-set than being a wide receiver or a running back. Former NFL greats who have done really well on DWTS like Emmit Smith and Jerry Rice relied on their agility, grace and mobility to move on the dance floor. Falling back into the pocket and throwing the ball isn’t the same thing.
During the first episode of Dancing With the Stars Kurt Warner did decent. He was a little stiff, but seemed to relax once he got into the routine and said he felt he would be better going forward. He scored a 19, which put him right in the middle of the pack for the 2010 DWTS premiere. With his popularity among sports fans and his all around great life story, Kurt Warner should be safe for a few weeks to come. He will need to relax a little and get in touch with his inner running back if he wants to make it very far though in this 2010 DWTS competition.
Can Kurt Warner make it through another week of Dancing With The Stars?
Tune in tonight when Dancing With The Stars Season 11 airs at 8|7c on ABC.
