NFC title game thoughts...

So we stand two days away from another championship Sunday, and I thought I'd offer my thoughts about some things.

Who can wait to watch Samuel vs. Fitzgerald???  The game's best at each position, head to head.  Fitz has been dominant as ever in the playoffs, but Samuel is by far the best corner he will have faced this season.  I still give Fitz the edge here, but not by a lot.  While Samuel's not going to shut him down, I do think he will keep him under control.  This will be more fun than the good old Runyan vs. Strahan hoopla we all used to enjoy twice a year.

This game will be open and shut if the Cards don't protect Warner.  One of the things that stands out with him is that he's definitely not a mobile QB, and his effectiveness is seriously compromised if you can get after him.  McNabb on the other hand still has a lot of escapability and is a mule to tackle even when you do get your hands on him.  (Ask the Giants how hard he is to bring down).  I like McNabb in this one because he's more dangerous when under pressure, and who the hell ever knows where he's going with the football since he makes a living throwing to like 15 different people a game.

Even though the Cards defense has played well the last two weeks, I think Philly will be able to move on them.  Arizona's scoring defense leaves a lot to be desired as well (28th in the NFL).  If Philly takes care of the ball (unlike Carolina), they should be able to produce points early and often.

FINAL THOUGHT:  I have to go with Philly in this one.  I think they have a few more strengths and a few less weaknesses than does Arizona.  Yes, Fitzgerald is the best in the game, but the Eagles generally scheme very well to take away your best player.  If the two teams play clean (few to no turnovers), the Eagles will be the NFC's Super Bowl rep.
