Eagles vs. Cardinals: What They Are Saying Thursday
Less than 72 hours till we will know if it will be the Eagles or the Cardinals going to the Super Bowl. This week has seemed like a lifetime in preparing for the NFC Championship game. I think more has been said and analyzed about the Cardinals this week alone than in the past 20 years combined. I was able to find some more interesting talk today.
Scott Bordow of the East Valley Tribune said that the Cardinals rise to the NFC Championship really started with the hiring of Dennis Green in 2004.
You might do a double take with that one, but it is true. If you remember that it was Green who drafted Larry Fitzgerald, Karlos Dansby, and Darnell Dockett. Sure, it took this long to make it, but those three players have provided a foundation this team can carry for awhile.
The Philadelphia Inquirier mentions Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb’s relationship with some of the Cardinals players in Eagles Notes, as McNabb makes his off-season home in the valley.
McNabb lives in the same neighborhood as Cards coach Ken Whisenhunt and Cards Safety Adrian Wilson. He is also friends with Bertrand Berry and Larry Fitzgerald. He says he is happy for the Cardinals success. I just hope these “friends” don’t share too much this week. Hopefully the Cards can show McNabb and the Eagles how comfortable they are playing at home.
Scott from Fansided’s Philadelphia Eagles Blog Inside The Iggles, says ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio is just searching for headlines when reporting on Brian Westbrook’s knee injury.
He said that Westbrook hasn’t looked right for awhile and his leg drive is suspect. I just hope it is still suspect come Sunday because if he even comes close to the performance he had against the Cards on Thanksgiving night, the Cards are toast.
We’ll see what tomorrow brings.
