MNF Preview – Cardinals at 49ers

December 14, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Young Kurt Warner...sexy.

Tonight’s MNF matchup is between the charging Arizona Cardinals (8-4) and the San Francisco 49ers (5-7).

Arizona is coming off of an absolute beat down of the Minnesota Vikings and is looking to clinch the NFC West division title two years in a row for the first time since the 1970’s.

(I loved watching that game because for the first time Favre looked very Favre-like. Sadly, he was spectacular, cool, calm and collected in the Vikings rout over the Bungals yesterday…damn you Brett Favre.)

Sorry for that. Moving on…

49ers QB Alex Smith is coming off of a career game against the Seahawks.

The Fightin’ Alex Smiths (I could have gone with Michael Crabbers, Mike Singletarys, or even Frank Gores, but I’ll stand by my Alex Smith selection.) are coming off a loss against the Seattle Seahawks.

QB Alex Smith had a career game with 310 passing yards and 2 TD’s.

(Smith could still be really successful in the NFL. Remember, he’s had four offensive coordinators in five years. You try to be successful while going through that. It would be like changing dentists half way through a root canal. It’s just not easy.)

The game should be an absolute offensive shoot-out with both teams throwing the ball a lot. One quarterback will inexplicably wear two gloves and look silly while doing so. (Yes, I’m talking to you Kurt Warner.)

Both teams love to throw the ball and Arizona’s D is one of the best at stopping the run.

With Arizona trying to clinch the division tonight I would expect a big game from Kurt ‘2 Gloves’ Warner and Larry Fitzgerald. (All-time greatest EA Sports NCAA Football video game receiver)

Alex Smith and the Niners will try to hang in the game, but in the end Arizona’s inspired defense will come up with the stops it needs.

Betting Line: Cardinals -3 1/2

Over/Under: 45

Prediction: Cardinals to win and cover. Under. The Cards defense will shut down the 49ers.
