Kurt Warner & Arizona Cardinals Come to Terms

NFL Divisional PlayoffsWell its about damn time!  Today the Arizona Cardinals and Kurt Warner agreed to a $23 million 2 year deal with $19 million in guaranteed cash to Kurt.  He gets $15 million up front and $4 million base salary for 2009/2010 seasons.

ESPN Article: Warner, Cardinals Agree

All week long I have been biting my nails and screaming that the Cardinals just pay the man – the old man was definitely a large piece of the catalyst that got the Arizona Cardinals to the #2 spot for the 2008 season (although I would have preferred #1, #2 sits just fine with me).

Now on to other issues – Anquan Boldin and Edgerrin James.  I am still on the fence about Anquan, he’s a great player, but he’s no Larry Fitzgerald.  He does bring a certain David Boston’esque feel to the receiver line up tho with as big and as physical as he is, and having a big dude on the squad that can catch a ball and lead the league in TD’s while he was out for 3 games…ummm…the Cards better re-sign his ass!

Edgerrin…bye bye.  Yeah, you pulled some great stats out of your ass in the playoffs, but give me a break – we had to pull a McNabb on your ass to get you there.  See ya…I’ll take Hightower and Arrington over your ass any day of the week.

Exciting times right now…now only if we could trade Lienart to Detroit for that #1 pick in the draft???  Stafford > Lienart!

Arizona Cardinals – Divisional Champs…off to the NFC Championship!

I have waited 20 years for this:

Arizona Cardinals - AZ Central Sports Page

I remember the first home game I went to with my Dad – it was against the Tampa Bay Bucs when they were still sporting the ugly orange uniforms.  I also got my first Cardinals hat that day when they were the Phoenix Cardinals.

Last night the Arizona Cardinals upset the Carolina Panthers 33-13 in Charlotte – a sureal experience for sure!  I’ve been a fan through the good, the bad, and the Denny Green/Joe Bugel/Buddy Ryan days…you know…the fuckin’ horrible days.  I’ve said “there’s always next year” for as long as I can remember…

…the “next year” is right now!

Cardinals are 1 game away from the Super Bowl…1 game that could be played at home if the Philadelphia Eagles dish out a beating to the New York Giants today…

Like I’ve said all season long…bring it on!!!

NFL Pick-Em League

For the past 10 years or so, I’ve participated in Fantasy Football with the same group of friends.  However, this year, I decided to change it up a little and also got in on a pick-em league.  Basically, you just go through the games each week and pick who the winner is.  There was a $20 buy in, and there is about 40+ in the league.  Right now, I’m sitting in 8th place (I’ve been as high as 5th).  The first place prize is $600…and I’ve got my sights on it!  Figure I can keep my blog a little less stale if I start adding these little posts – so here are my picks for this week:

  • Cleveland vs. Denver (Pick: Cleveland) – Incorrect
  • Atlanta vs New Orleans (Pick: New Orleans) – Incorrect
  • Tennessee vs. Chicago (Pick: Tennessee) – Correct
  • Jacksonville vs. Detroit (Pick: Jacksonville) – Correct
  • Miami vs. Seattle (Pick: Miami) – Correct
  • Minnesota vs. Green Bay (Pick: Green Bay) – Incorrect
  • New England vs. Buffalo (Pick: New England) – Correct
  • New York Jets vs. St. Louis (Pick: New York Jets) – Correct
  • Baltimore vs. Houston (Pick: Baltimore) – Correct
  • Carolina vs. Oakland (Pick: Carolina) – Correct
  • Pittsburgh vs. Indianapolis (Pick: Pittsburgh) – Incorrect
  • San Diego vs. Kansas City (Pick: San Diego) – Correct
  • Philadelphia vs. New York Giants (Pick: New York Giants) – Correct
  • Arizona vs. San Francisco (Pick: Arizona)

So how do you think I did?  I’ll find out soon enough I suppose! LOL  Oh…and the Arizona Cardinals are tearing it up this year!  Lovin’ every minute of that.  Playoffs…here we come!
