I don't want to be the favborite and give the Cards a chip on their shoulder.

Their offense scares the crap out of me. Fitzgerald is unbelieveable.

With Wiz and his high octane offense along with his gadget plays, our defense won't be able to keep them down to enough scrub points to allow our pathetic offense to out score.

Wiz knows our team better than most I would have to say and they proved that last season.

What is Arians gadget play ? A long developing reverse that never gets them more than 3 or 4 yards.

Cards are going to crush our Steelers if Tomlin doesn't slap some sense into Arians.

Have you ever seen Arians ? He even looks stupid. He is as dumb as he looks.

Yea but .... don't you think that our guys know a little bit about Whizz's offense?

I have one word for ya.... LeBeau. :tt1

Yes and I forget about LeBeau the mastermind. I just get ticked that our team is strictly defense and you can't really rely on the O to take control.

wow that's a lot of points!

We are playing a 9-7 team from the softest division in football.

A #4 seed who was fortunate enough to receive two home games against teams with better records - they were 6-2 at home, 3-5 on the road

A team that came to the wire 2-4 including losses by 21, 28, and 40.

Let us not put the Cards up on some pedestal. We are very fortunate with the way things have worked out in the playoffs so far.

First we were up against San Diego. I kept hearing how lucky we were to beat them by one point in the regular season, and we would not be able to match their high octane O.

Next we had to face the Ravens for a third time - nobody can ever beat a team three times in one season, it is impossible!

Now we face the mighty 9-7 Cards. The greatest show on turf 2. All I keep hearing about is our opposition, not about how good a team we are.

Instead of "We have never faced an offense like this", why isn't it that "they have never faced a D like this"?

If their #4 ranked O can move the ball on our #1 ranked D, why can't our #22 ranked O move the ball against their #19 ranked D?

Very simple - if we can contain Fitz and Boldin then this game is not close.
