The Cards have become hot at exactly the right time, they keep beating teams that few think they should beat, and they won’t be intimidated by the Super Bowl atmosphere.
In the past month, the Cardinals have proven impossible to ignore and to take lightly. In three successive playoff wins, each more impressive than the previous one, they have defeated Atlanta, Carolina, and Philadelphia, while making sure everyone knows who Larry Fitzgerald is: the best receiver in the NFL at the moment.
While Fitzgerald has been setting the tone, the Cardinals have all joined in to prove they aren’t a one-man show. QB Kurt Warner, experiencing a career revival at age 37, spreads the ball around whenever he needs to and gets rid of it faster than anyone in the NFL.
Undoubtedly, Steelers defensive expert Dick LeBeau will have come up with some great blitz schemes to bother Warner, but Warner spits it out of the pocket so fast he often can beat a rusher who doesn’t have anyone blocking him.
RB Edgerrin James has spent much of the playoffs proving that he still has it. WR Anquan Boldin is a second No. 1 wide receiver that compliments Fitzgerald.
On defense, Arizona has shown improvement in the playoffs. The Steelers offense has some problems, too. Stopping RB Willie Parker will be the biggest key.
