WHAT TO WATCH FOR: The Cardinals will host their first playoff game since 1947 when the franchise was in Chicago. Turnovers have plagued the Cardinals the past two months, and that's what Atlanta will be striving to force. In the last seven games, the Cardinals have committed 16 turnovers — 10 of them in their own territory. Opponents have converted those turnovers into 10 touchdowns and two field goals, a major reason why the Cardinals lost four of their past six games, going from 7-3 to 9-7. Putting pressure on Arizona QB Kurt Warner, who was sacked only 26 times this season, will be critical if the Falcons are going to win. Atlanta DE John Abraham, who led the Falcons with 16 1/2 sacks, should be a handful for OT Mike Gandy. "Warner gets hit more than any quarterback in the league," Abraham said. "Our biggest thing is to keep the pressure on him and keep hitting him. We might not get the sacks, but we have to make sure we get him frustrated." Atlanta DEs Chauncey Davis and Kroy Biermann will rotate in place of injured Jamaal Anderson, who suffered a high ankle sprain against Minnesota on Dec. 21. Both players had sacks last week; the two have combined for six sacks, while Anderson has just two. Warner, who passed for 4,583 yards and 30 TDs, averages 37 attempts per game.


One big plus for the Arizona offense is the return of WR Anquan Boldin, who appeared to have fresh legs in practice this week after sitting out several games with a bum shoulder. "He moved around very well," coach Ken Whisenhunt said. "He looked very good. I'm glad I sat him." Also returning is OLB Travis LaBoy, who had four sacks during an injury-marred season. The Falcons can control the game's tempo with RB Michael Turner, who scored 17 rushing TDs this season while running for 1,699 yards in a career year. If Turner moves the pile, it will allow rookie QB Matt Ryan to pick his spots and utilize play action. Ryan was 6-0 this season in games in which he had a 100.0 or higher quarterback rating. WR Roddy White had a team-record season with 1,382 receiving yards, and he's a great deep threat, averaging 15.7 yards a catch. Plus, White has 29 third-down receptions, second-best in the NFL.

It wasn't the 0-16 season? He was a good at the TV game before the Lions debacle. I for one would like to see him get some respect back. Always liked him. Good player.


Edit: But I'm not a Lions fan :)
