For those Cardinals fans that have been for a while; you know that the one and only rival the Cardinals have are their division rival 49ers. Well; the 49ers have been kicking our ass the last couple years. They've come into our stadium and beat us up and they've beat us up in their dump of a stadium. The weeks they play the 49ers is like Christmas week for me. I've watched and witnessed numerous physical battles and now I finally feel we have the players to match their physicality. It finally feels like we have a team who can compete.
There were reports today of BA stating in an interview and on NFL.com that he opposes the Hardknocks mandate. He stated that would be an embarrassment to his players. This must be the respect aspect of BA's coaching style. Then later, coach Harbaugh of the 49ers stated that "he welcomed it", "he enjoys it", "he had ideas" and "theres no point in whinning about it" as reported on the 49ers website. This must be the ass in the asinine coaching philosophy of the whining 9ers.what I'm trying to say here is three-fold. 1. BA is about his players, 2. Harbaugh is about himself. and 3. It's a sneaky move for Harbaugh to come out and oppose BA as well as refer to him as a Whiner.
Now you might not buy into my idea that Harbaugh is taking shots at BA, but I do. Everyone laughed at Derek Anderson when he said "I take this shit personal" but that game was on Nov. 29th, Monday night football against this weeks opponent; the 49ers. We lost that game 27 to 6 on National TV on Monday Night Football. It was a game that would put a spotlight on the dynamic of the Cardinals QB struggles over the couple years. It was a game that expressed how every 49ers game has been and always will be. As Darnell Dockett expressed on the Cardinals website; playing the 49ers is personal.
These games are always personal, always physical and now for who in the division improves their chances to be on HBO next year. I'd like to officially dub this series here forward; the Hardknocks Series !
LETS O CARDS BEAT THE WHINERS !
