Kurt Warner knows something about playing his best when it matters most.

The former St. Louis Rams and Arizona Cardinals quarterback owns the three highest totals for passing yards in Super Bowl history. He's the only player in NFL history with six 300-yard passing games in the postseason. Only Bart Starr has a higher playoff passer rating.

No wonder Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers wants to know what Warner is thinking.

"Kurt Warner has been a great friend really since I was drafted," Rodgers told reporters, "and so I reached out to him about any advice he can give me this week, and the next week -- it's readily appreciated. I'm sure there will be more conversations with him."

Warner completed 72 percent of his passes for 377 yards and three touchdowns against Pittsburgh in the Super Bowl two years ago. The Steelers won even though Warner's 64-yard touchdown pass to Larry Fitzgerald put Arizona in the lead with 2:37 remaining.

Rodgers witnessed one of the best pure passing performance by a quarterback in postseason history when Warner completed 29 of 33 attempts for 379 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions during Arizona's wild-card victory over Green Bay following the 2009 season.
