Cardinals earning some serious national attention…

This week’s Sports Illustrated features Larry Fitzgerald (2 in a row now) and Kurt Warner on the cover and a nice article discussing the Cardinals’ resurgent defense and impressive offense.  Nevertheless, the alleged sports “experts” at SI fail to give Arizona the credit they deserve, picking Philadelphia in an easy win, annoying me yet again.  The Cardinals at home are tough, and we really don’t have any history of their performance in playoff games (aside from their two impressive wins this season) because, frankly, they haven’t been in a really, really long time.  Philadelphia, on the other hand – and especially Donovan McNabb – have a history of choking in big playoff games, so I wouldn’t be so quick to dismiss what the right combination of heart, motivation, and teamwork can accomplish.

Go Cardinals!!
