GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Not that Kurt Warner has quite achieved deity status in Arizona, but for years the Cardinals did keep their stadium roof closed at least in part because the quarterback preferred playing indoors.
The roof is open Sunday and Warner presumably will not mind. The retired quarterback will be watching from the broadcast booth as part of the Fox team covering Arizona's home game against the St. Louis Rams
The Cardinals opened the roof for one game last season, three in 2008, four in 2007 and three in 2006.
Some fans have complained about the sun blinding their eyes when the roof was opened for past games. The team cited near-freezing temperatures for leaving the roof closed during the team's Monday night game. Warner became accustomed to playing home games indoors while with the Rams.
The Cardinals have won six of their last seven home games with the roof open, most recently against the Rams last season. The temperature then was 58 degrees. The temperature two hours before kickoff Sunday: 69 degrees, with a projected high of 78.
