Nice to see teams with a pass rush, OL protection and pass receivers who can catch.

McKnabb chocked AGAIN. The Eagles rookie WR, Jackson caught more passes than our three WR/TE draft picks together.

Vinny - take notes. Sorry, you're probably more interested in the radio program....

first off, i hate the eagles. but how do you figure? when the eagles were behind, he took them on 3 long, consecutive scoring drives to take the lead. their defense couldnt hold it.

Glad to see both the Ravens and the Eagles lose. Both of their fans are obnoxious. Plus they both have an inferiority complex. What good is an inferiority complex when you win?

Did you watch the first half or just those three drives?

So the debate over who's the best receiver in the league. That's over right?

Re: AFC/NFC Championship game thread

The Cardinals are showing the importance of big play by big receivers to complement (for them) a decent running game. If Kelly and Thomas can step up next year and add a new dimension to Portis, our offense should be much better than 22nd or wherever we finished in scoring.

Well, McNabb had two first half turnovers, and missed badly on some key throws. Yes, his numbers looked okay with 3tds, but he wasn't outstanding by any means.

The thing the Skins would still be missing is the QB. Warner knows how to get rid of the ball quickly and is a really accurate passer. The Skins dont have that yet at QB.

The Eagles had success yesterday in spite of DM. His inaccurate passing (he was terrible in the 1st half) killed a few drives in the 4th qtr that could have run more clock and set the Eagles up for more points. For the few great passes he threw he had way too many bad ones. I hate to say what team's QB he reminded me of yesterday so I wont say it.

Re: AFC/NFC Championship game thread

Last night McNabb was about as accurate as a Juggs machine with one wheel. If you scrutinized a QB's accuracy just like a WR's hands, McNabb would have been a backup at best. However, the eagles throw about 30+plays a game so the numbers get scewed. I commend him for the 3 drives but his passes were all over the damn place.

I don't think anyone said we need an "elite" line, just a younger, healthier line capable of consistent pass protection really.

Don't forget the Cardinals have an amazing O-line coach in Russ Grimm, and he's doing a great job with those guys, who have in large part been healthy all season.

Wow, Fitzgerald is your new favorite WR? Go Cards? What happened to the Falcons? You were touting them a few weeks ago. Bandwagon much? If Fitzgerald gets shut down in the SuperBowl and Santonio Holmes plays well for Pitt, I imagine you'll have a Steelers avatar and Holmes jersey....

Re: AFC/NFC Championship game thread

Re: AFC/NFC Championship game thread

THE ARIZONA CARDINALS ARE GOING TO THE SUPERBOWL!!!

Reminds me of my favorite quote from Ghostbusters!

Dr. Peter Venkman:This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions. Mayor:What do you mean, "biblical"?
Dr. Ray Stantz:What he means is Old Testament, Mr. Mayor, real wrath of God type stuff.
Dr. Peter Venkman:Exactly.
Dr. Ray Stantz:Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling!
Dr Egon Spengler:Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes...
Winston Zeddemore:The dead rising from the grave!
Dr. Peter Venkman:Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!

Dr. Peter Venkman - Bill Murray
Dr. Ray Stantz - Dan Aykroyd
Dr. Egon Spengler - Harold Ramis
Winston Zeddemore - Ernie Hudson
Mayor - David Margulies

LOL. Around here we call someone like that a Frontrunner. Only roots for the team that is in the front or doing well at the time. Changes teams whenever the tide changes.

Regarding the Cards:
1) Kurt Warner was very impressive in the way he handled the vaunted Eagles blitz. Especially in the first half Warner gave a clininc on how to be the blitz. The way he completed those short passes to his TE's & RB's right over the top, just out of the reach of the blitzing defenders. Those short passes over the middle turned into 10-20 yard gains.

2) The Cardinals defense was the biggest surprise of the entire 2008 playoffs. If they can get their injured players back for the Sb, they should make it a game.
