This week’s game plan for the Arizona Cardinals is pretty evident. Since it’s almost impossible to effectively run the football against Carolina on its home field, the Cards have decided to throw.
Kurt Warner threw the ball 49 times already, completing an amazing 35 passes for 381 yards and two touchdowns. His top three wide receivers, Larry Fitzgerald (seven catches, 115 yards), Anquan Boldin (nine catches, 63 yards, two TDs) and Steve Breaston (nine catches, 91 yards), all found success.
The bottom line is clear: Even if it looks like a bad matchup on paper, Warner is a must-start quarterback.
