McKnabb is very good; but did you see how many open WR he missed? I'm talking about easy TD's or catches that would have sustained the drives. Of course when he was on target he is unstoppable. However, he was off for 2 quarters and Kurt Warner outplayed him.

Donovan is good enough to get them to a high level but has not been good enough to take them to the top.

Re: AFC/NFC Championship game thread

Warner did a good job, but people forget they've had that offense all along. Some changes this year have been I would say an improvement on their offensive line and a bit of an improvement in their running game. The biggest thing during the playoffs has been their defense coming up big, I think that has caught a lot of people off guard.

McNabb also did a good job in the playoffs against the Giants. The Cards defense just step it up and I don't think the Iggles had the offense to keep up with the Cards. I know we hate the Iggles, but don't disregard the fact that they actually made it to playoffs and made it past the first round.

A lot of people are touting Fitzgerald, yet the only way we would have gotten a player like him this past offseason would have been through a trade. Something like this would have set off a whine-fest, with the typical line "we need to build through the draft". Honestly, we don't need a player like Fitz, if we don't have an offensive line that allows our QB. Besides, the Cards have gotten the same production out of Fitz and Boldin in previous seasons, but have not had the defense to help them win games.

Finally, not to take away from the Cards, but they also were in the weakest division. They did a helluva job in the playoffs, beating the Falcons and the Panthers. I just feel that they had an easier job getting there.

Yeah, the Eagles should have dropped 38 by my count. But hey, at least he didn't puke this time.

Unlike the Cards, I don't think we could have peaked in the playoffs. Shoot, we couldn't beat the Cowboys at home when our playoff lives depended on it, there would have been no way we could have played Atlanta or Carolina the way the Cards did.

You'd have to be insane to disagree with that.

Re: AFC/NFC Championship game thread

I was at the Cards Eagles game, My best friend is an eagles fan...

Cardinals fans are probably the nicest on the planet.
Even when they insult you, it's really not that bad.

The worst my eagle friend heard was "Take that Mcnabb jersey off, he sucks. Kolb looks good for next year, You guys are going to be set. We look forward to playing you again"

Go Cards!
Just ignore his retarded ass. The things he says aren't that important anyway. He's not that bright either. That's why I call him Night Light.
