Tag Archive: Quarterback


Last night, if you love high scoring games full of explosive big plays and alot of offense, this was the game for you.  If you’re a fan of defense, well let’s just say you didn’t have too much to smile about.  The Arizona Cardinals faced off w/ the Green Bay Packers in a historic wild card matchup which featured 1,024 yrds of offense and 62 first downs.  Oh yeah, the two teams combined for a score of 96 total points as the Cardinals defeated the Packers 51-45. 

What more could football fans ask for!!! Kurt Warner seemed to turn back the hands of time throwing 29/33 for 379 yrds and 5 touchdowns, while Aaron Rodgers was 28/42 w/ 422 yrds and 4 touchdowns. Talk about an epic QB matchup.  The run games of both teams weren’t much of a factor in this one but it didn’t matter.  We even had a missed FG in the final seconds of regulation, causing an overtime stir.  The play of the game wasn’t after Rodgers lost the ball on a fumble which resulted in Karlos Dansby touchdown run, but when Rodgers had Jennings wide open behind the Cards D but overthrew him.  That’s the play I know Rodgers wants back but ultimately decided this one for the Pack.  Let’s just say Arizona played all the right Cards last night.

Will the Arizona Cardinals make it to the SuperBowl?

Yesterday, Brett Farve once again came back into the NFL spotlight.  Just a year after signing w/ the Jets and having a disappointing season, he now has signed with the Minnesota Vikings.  The contract is a two year, 25 million dollar deal, which aligns him w/ the league’s premiere RB Adrian Peterson.  Um, I don’t know how this will fair for the Vikings but Farve is an all-time great QB.  He may do better in Minnesota than he did w/ the Jets primarily because he’s familiar w/ the offensive playbook and he will not have to do as much, since he has AP on his side.  Bears now have to watch out!!!

According to reports by Sports Business Daily, Jay Culter leads the pack when it comes to NFL jerseys sold on NFL.com.  He has yet to take a snap, but his presence is already being felt by the Bears.  When he was w/ the Broncos, his jersey sells sat at spot 17, and now since the trade reigns Number 1.  Next on the list was Troy Palamalu & Ben Roethlisburger, both of the Steelers.
