Who Has The Edge?

Cardinals

Analysis

49ers

QB

Cardinals_05_medium A two-time MVP that
hasn't thrown a pick in 4
games vs a former 1st-
overall pick that's just
showcasing his talent.

RB

Cardinals_05_medium A year ago I would've
easily handed this to
the 49ers, but this
year the Cardinals are
the better rushing team.

WR

Cardinals_05_medium Crabtree and Morgan
look promising, but
Fitz, Q, and Breaston
out-due any team.

TE

Vernon Davis is turning
into one of the better
tight ends in the league.
No contest.

OL

Cardinals_05_medium Going with the stats on
this one - 49ers line has
allowed 32 sacks, Cards
have allowed 18.

DL

Cardinals_05_medium This one's a split for the
simple fact that the 49ers
defensive line is very
good when playing the
Cardinals.

LB

Even if Takeo Spikes is
out, Patrick Willis makes
the 49er's defense one
of the best against the
run.

CB

The 49ers defensive
backs haven't given up as
many big plays as the
Cardinals DBs. They also
seem to step it up against
the Cardinals.

S

Cardinals_05_medium

Adrian Wilson usually
has big games against
the 49ers. He and Rolle
are as good as it gets
as a safety duo.

ST

Cardinals_05_medium Most ST stats were close
till I saw one thing - 1
return TD for the Cards by
LSH, 1 allowed by the
49ers to Percy Harvin.

COACH

Cardinals_05_medium Ken Whisenhunt has his
team set to win the NFC
West for the 2nd year in
a row. Easy pick. I do like
Singletary though.

EDGE

8-4
Cardinals_05_medium

In the end the Cardinals
should hold the edge and
should win tonight's
game. They're the better
team and are ready for the
playoffs. The game
will be closer then what
this shows though.
