Very good signs for Warner, Cardinals' offense

The Cardinals might miss Todd Haley, but I think Haley is missing the Cardinals in Week 2.
Kurt Warner has completed 18 of 19 passes for 173 yards and a touchdown through two quarters against the Jaguars. He has had some help -- Anquan Boldin made an improbable grab of a deflected pass -- but he has also become comfortable again.
The Cardinals cannot concern themselves with what the 24-3 halftime score says about the Jaguars. Arizona needed to get its offense going. Warner needed to feel comfortable again. The mission in the second half should be for Beanie Wells to regain confidence after two first-half fumbles. Wells has four carries for 40 yards. He clearly can run the ball. But he has to hold onto the ball if he expects to command more playing time.
