Many of our guys said we did. I agree that our receivers are solid and deep, but I also said that the Cardinals receivers would have something to say about being up there, too. Fitz, Boldin, and Breaston are excellent receivers. Now with the emergence of Doucet and also having Urban, the Cardinals receivers are even more potent.

Having said that, this Saints' team is not just going to lie down for them. They will have a fight on their hands. The Saints will have a chip on their shoulder and will be inspired in this game. Finally being healthy in the defensive secondary is going to be key. There are some playmakers back there, and they aren't afraid to hit people in the mouth. The Cardinals will definitely have to bring their A-game.
Cant disagree! I watched several Saints games this year and it seems that everytime I did the one thought in my mind was "Damn these guys are for real". This is a match up that I personally have been hoping for. I think these are the two best teams in the NFC if not the NFL. And the two teams have very similar styles. This will be a very good game and I in no way expect the Saints will be laying down for anybody. And I know the Cards wont.

Seems Boldin and now LB Gerald Hayes are both gameday decisions after not practicing on Wednesday.

I still think it's a smoke screen. Boldin's knee and ankle can't be healed in 3 weeks. But if he plays he plays I still like our chances to win by 10.

Re: Anquan Boldin Expected to Play Saturday in New Orleans; Do the Cards Even Need Him?

just watched mike and mike in the morning and it sounded very doubtful that boldin would play

boldin is likely not going to be in action which is fine with me

the packers screwed up because they thought their offense would get stagnant without him but the reality is that their offense is the same, just with a different piece in the puzzle

Boldin adds the YAC that Doucet or Breaston doesn't. I'm glad he will be watching if that is indeed the case.

I caught Mike and Mike this morning just as they were saying "now predictions for the Sunday games". Did you catch their predictions for the Sat games?

The game is one of fantastic offenses. Cards will have very good backups if Boldin does not go. But as the man said:

Having our best two corners back in the line up is great. Before Porter and Greer went down we could stop any body. Chuck them hard at the line and throw off their timing routes.
