The NFC Championship has passed and the Cardinals have moved on to a much bigger stage. There are certain players that certainly stepped and came to play this past Sunday. This team has shown that what happened in the regular season has had nothing to do with the postseason.This week will feature the players that are heating up at the right time.
- Larry Fitzgerald - You could say he was the hottest player of the entire playoffs. He stepped up when his team needed him to, and helped secure the Arizona Cardinals first-ever Super Bowl appearance.
- Kurt Warner - Kurt has the most playoff experience on the team and has shown that so far in the playoffs. He's been virtually mistake-free and and was able to play well against some tough defenses.
- Edgerrin James - How can you be mad at this guy? He was put in the starting line up the last week of the season and hasn't looked back. He's made the difference on offense and is one of the main reasons we are here.
- Neil Rackers- This guy has shown he can be one of the top kickers in the league if he stays focused. He's almost back in my good graces, and I would say if he hits a game winning field goal in the Super Bowl I will be a Rackers fan forever.
- Cardinals Defense as a Whole - Where was this unit all season? They remind me of the Colts of '06. Nobody thought they would stand a chance in the playoffs and they've been pretty special so far. Lets hope this keeps up on Feb 1st.
