Conference Championship Preview- Cardinals vs Eagles

Philly needs a little more of this...

Philly needs a little more of this...

Whooo big game and I’m 6-2. I decided to start with the better conference this week so yeah. The Eagles and Cards are both coming off surprising games. The Eagles game wasn’t as surprising, but still a shock nonetheless. This pick is tough considering that both teams were underdogs who were supposed to have been stopped by now. The Cards have the most dangerous passing attack in the league and the Eagles have one of the best secondaries in the league. Actually, going back and forth on how these teams have played this postseason, everyone has stepped up. Well, almost everyone. Brian Westbrook has been WET GARBAGE these past two weeks. If the Eagles want to win, they HAVE to get Westbrook the ball and he HAS to do something with it. I don’t know for sure, but I think he’s been getting around 2 yards a carry and well, that’s pretty awful. As a matter of fact, Edgerrin James is doing better than that, and that’s a surprise for real. For someone who has been complaining and wants to leave, he sure is playing like someone fighting for a job. When all is said and done, the run game will be the deciding factor on who will be going to Tampa. I’m not saying QBs won’t have anything to do with it, but with the way these defenses have been playing, passing is a little irrelevant. Since I don’t think that the Cards will break 75 rush yards, the Eagles get this win and go to Tampa. Final Score: PHI 23 AZ 17
