Cardinals already up 14-3. Kurt Warner is 6/7 passing with two TD's, both to Larry Fitzgerald who has 4 receptions for 98 yards.

I hope nobody drank the ESPN kool-aid about how Philly was going to walk all over Arizona.

Does this game matter? the winner gets the right to be pummeled in the Super Bowl.

Woo.

I like Kurt Warner but the Cardinals being bad is as American as apple pie, it's just not right for them to do any good ;)

I see Brian Robinson is still getting fork lifted and blown 5 yards off the line for Arizona, some things never change.

Larry Fitzgerald may have the best hands in the game - he is amazing.

Now the Cardinals take the lead.
This is one of the better playoff games I've seen in a while, especially since I had literally fallen asleep from boredom after the first half.

This is probably the opposite of what tonight's game will be...which will be smash mouth, defense, hard knocks, low scoring...blood, pulp, guts...crappy weather...

I was hoping PHI beacuse i was thinking McNabb could give the finger to Philly by winning and then leaving....and since i dislike both PITT and BAL...it makes it even better.

You couldn't predict this...the Arizona Cardinals are going to the Super Bowl.

The beauty of the NFL in every city but Cincinnati.

Congratulations to the Cardinals, spectacular performance. I'll be rooting for them in the Super Bowl.

Kurt Warner may have just guaranteed his eventual induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
I'm trying to think of other quarterbacks who lead two different teams to the Super Bowl. Craig Morton was the QB of both the 1970 Cowboys and 1977 Broncos, both of whom lost the Super Bowl, but Morton was more of a caretaker QB than a leader;both of those teams won their conference primarily because of their defense.
Earl Morrall was voted the NFL MVP in 1968, while taking the Colts to Super Bowl III, where he ran into Joe Namath and the Jets. He relieved an injured Johnny Unitas two years later in Super Bowl V, an error filled game in which his Colts did rally to defeat Craig Morton's Cowboys. Morrall also quarterbacked the 1972 Dolphins for much of their 1972 unbeaten season, after Bob Griese was hurt, but Griese came back to QB Miami in the AFC championship and Super Bowl games.
I can't recall any other examples.

The fact that Arizona has made it to the Super Bowl after years of embarrassing football gives you hope as a Bengals fan....Oh wait, Mike Brown is still the owner.

Cardinals had to move twice, so maybe the Portland Bengals will finally make it :D

The Bidwell family isn't much better.

Arizona has been the beneficiary of circumstance. If anything, the fact that this game was played in Glendale helped give the Cardinals the win. If this had been in Philly, forget it. The defense hasn't been overly spectacular, with the exception of last weeks dismantling of a Jake Delhomme led Carolina offense.

Say what you want about Kurt Warner (and he is one of my favorite players of all time), but a lot of the credit IMO goes to Ken Whisenhunt. To my knowledge, he may be the first successful coach to ever come out of the Bill Cowher coaching tree. I would say he has had as much of an impact in the Cardinals turnaround than anybody, including Kurt Warner.

Excellent game. Congrats to Warner and the Cardinals.

But I have to admit that it sure looked like pass interference by the Cards on the last pass play by the Eagles. ;)

Evened things up for the referees blowing that call in the first half when the Cardinals recovered a kickoff wrongfully ruled to have gone out of bounds, with the ball being given to the Eagles. ;)

I'm really surprised the Cardinals won the game. I expected the Eagles to win it by a lot. Congratulations to the Cardinals and their QB, Kurt Warner.

I like Kurt Warner a lot and I don't want to take too much credit away from him, but I think I could look like a pretty good QB if I was throwing to Larry Fitzgerald.

Take Larry Fitzgerald away and Arizona isnt even at the stadium. Fitzgerald just told Warner to throw it in his general direction and that he was going to single handedly win the NFC Title... which he did.

McNabb did his best to get them back in it. And even provided some drama by taking a 25-24 lead. Unfortunately for McNabb he left Fitzgerald too much time.

Quick question for Bengals fans:

Let's assume Chad, TJ, and Carson are back next season. We invest in our offensive line and draft any one of Monroe, Smith, or Oher, depending on who is available.

Given the weakness of our running game, do you think Carson Palmer could run an Arizona all-pass offense?

I believe Fitzgerald and Boldin are a cut above Chad and TJ and they're really what makes that offense tick. TJ is good but Fitzgerald is just amazing in his ability to catch anything thrown his way. Also, don't forget that this offense led to an 8-8 season in the weak NFC West before heating up for the playoffs.

9-7, but point well taken. :) I agree with you that Fitzgerald and Boldin are definitely collectively better than T.J. and Chad, but I'd take a healthy Palmer over Kurt Warner.
