Yup, just jumped to 47.5 on BetJamaica. The Bal/Ten total jumped a full point when it opened as well.Edit...make that 1.5 points to 48 and 35 respectively.
The Cards looked like they were back to midseason form against the Falcons. Considering Kurt Warner lit the Panthers' defense up earlier in the season, this is going to be a very interesting game.10 points is way too much, although I'll admit that when things have gone bad for the Cards this year, they've got really bad. Still, Delhomme is no world beater, and Warner has already shown he can pass on this defense. Shocked that the Cards aren't getting more respect.
not me. The Card/falcon game was the hardest to call (for me) last week. And the eagles were a slam dunk.This week I like the Carolina, sorry bro
The meadowlands, Linc and Gillette are a bit different than where they will be playing come this Sunday. I think this route was your only shot at the NFC Championship.As much as I would like ANOTHER Cards victory, they are terrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrible playing on the Least Coast
I agree with half of that - no one was rooting harder for the Eagles so the Cards could start in Carolina instead of the Meadowlands............BUT they didn't win the first time there.....and didn't win Anywhere in the Eastern Time ZoneThe meadowlands, Linc and Gillette are a bit different than where they will be playing come this Sunday.

no sorry to me big dog. i'd rather people pick vs the cards than with them. regardless of the outcome, i definitely think that it will be closer than what the 10 point spread indicates. although, you never know. when the cards lose, they lose big. and i know its not a good thing for the cards if boldin doesnt play, but im pretty sure they won a few games earlier in the season without him. not sure who they were against or anything but who knows. if edge is as effective this week as he was vs atlanta, i dont see why the cards cant hang with carolina. if they could somehow find a way to slowdown two top 5 running games in back to back weeks then it will be a solid game. but that of course is a huge if. it should be a fun weekend of football no matter what.not me.

Ryan's experience showed last week. A few more years under his belt and that game has a different outcome. Arizona is a different team at home and this Saturday they will be on the road. Carolina has had two weeks to prepare for both Atlanta and Arizona. They play Atlanta often enough to know what to expect there. They have studied the film of week 8 against Arizona and I'm confident they have a good game plan in place to mitigate previous mistakes. I hope the weather dips into the mid to low 40s. It would be prime conditions for Carolina's running game. Not so good conditions for Boldin's injury. The key to Carolina's game, besides ball control, is putting pressure on Warner all nigtht long.It's funny that a week ago, the "experts" all said that the Cards were the worst team to make the playoffs. Now they're everybody's sleeper pick to beat the Panthers. Big difference playing on the road, travelling across the country, and playing against a QB who is not a rookie making his first playoff (on the road) appearance.
The secondary is definitely a concern. I hope they are at the top of their game Saturday night, and I hope our DT's (Lewis and Kemoeatu) have finally gotten healthy over the past week 1/2 too, as well as Otah and Hangartner. Fox has been mum on them, but I think the injury report has to be released today.Go Cats!! * it looks like all are back except for hangartner.Starting tackles Maake Kemoeatu (ankle) and Damione Lewis (shoulder), who both missed time at the end of the regular season, practiced Wednesday and look to be OK for Saturday's playoff game against Arizona.Offensive tackle Jeff Otah, who hurt his toe in the regular-season finale at New Orleans, also practiced.The only player who didn't practice was offensive lineman Geoff Hangartner, who's still recovering from an ankle injury.Panthers were lucky to have won earlier in the season, our secondary better improve.
Yup...first time ever for a home playoff game.
