A positive has been the running game. Tim Hightower has 66 yards on 15 carries. Rookie Beanie Wells has been sidelined with a sprained ankle but has practiced this week and is expected to play Friday night when the Cardinals are home against the Green Bay Packers.
Warner has completed 12 of 23 passes for 133 yards with one interception so far in the preseason. The statistics might not show it, but he said he's far more in tune with the offense than he was at this point last season, when he was battling Matt Leinart for the starting job.
"I feel better after these first two than I've felt in a long time," he said. "That's what the preseason is all about for me. I want to make good decisions. I know the throws and all that stuff will come, but I want to get comfortable with what I'm seeing, is the game slowing down, that I'm feeling pressure and those kinds of things."
For Warner, it's all about paying attention to the details. He and the rest of the starters will get more of a chance to find their rhythm when they play at least the entire first half against the Packers.
"We're just short-circuiting a little bit as we get tighter to the red zone," Warner said. "Those things are always a little bit of a concern, but you look at the positives and you focus on the negatives and how you can correct them."
