NFC Championship Recap: The Larry Fitzgerald Show
Total Pro Sports- Larry Fitzgerald is the best receiver in the NFL, and during yesterday’s game he proved it. After another fantastic playoff performance, Fitzgerald has broken the NFL record for most receiving yards in a postseason. The record was previous held by some guy named Jerry Rice.
The game got away from the Philadelphia Eagles early, thanks to the play of Fitzgerald, who had three first half touchdown receptions. He finished the game with 9 receptions for 152 yards. The Eagles managed to battle back and even had a slight lead late in the second half, but they couldn’t hold on and the game winning touchdown was scored by Cardinals rookie Tim Hightower.
The Arizona Cardinals will be representing the NFC in the Superbowl, for the first time in their franchises history. The Cardinals are the Cinderella of this playoffs and the big ball is on February 1st. I think that Cardinals making the Superbowl is great for the NFL, because it means there is hope for any team to make it to the Superbowl (except the Detroit Lions).
The team that lost the game, the Philadelphia Eagles, are left to wonder about the future of their team. This season there has been more talk than ever about the possible departure of QB Donovan McNabb, who’s contract is about to expire. Coach Andy Reid was on the hot seat prior to the teams playoff run, but thanks to his teams playoff run he may have saved his job. However, Reid should focus this off season on his own personal conditioning because he looks like he is on a 10 Philly cheese steak-a-day diet.
The NFC Championship was a great game and the Cardinals deserved to win it.
