Analysis

Saints

QB

Cardinals_05_medium Warner's a great postseason quarterback, while Brees excels at everything else Saints_medium

RB

Cardinals_05_medium Saints are banged up, Cardinals rushing game looked flawless last week

WR

Cardinals_05_medium Both teams have very good WRs, with Boldin out, it's an even match up Saints_medium

TE

Shockey has looked good in NO, he alone has edge over Cards TEs Saints_medium

OL

This is a very good unit, although the Cards O line is not far behind Saints_medium

DL

Cardinals_05_medium Cardinals D was the only bright spot last week, should harass Brees

LB

Vilma man's a very good group of linebackers;Cards age at LB has hurt them Saints_medium

CB

No argument here, Saints CBs are very good. Other then DRC, Cards DBs looked bad last week Saints_medium

S

Cardinals_05_medium Two pro bowl, 1st team all pro safeties means an even match up Saints_medium

ST

Cardinals_05_medium Cardinals one of the best ST units in all of the league, looked good last week too

COACH

Cardinals_05_medium The Whiz has the Cardinals in the 2nd round 2 years in a row, Peyton makes it because he was the coach of the year IMO Saints_medium

EDGE

7-8
A lot of even match ups here but the 13-3 Saints obviously hold the edge. Let's go for the upset Cardinals!!
