The Niners better D-up in Phoenix

The Niners will be facing a very formidable offensive machine when they roll into Phoenix for their upcoming Monday night game. The Cardinals have been especially dangerous through the air so far this year. Curt Warner leads the NFC in passing with 2431 yards, a 70% completion rate, and 16 TD’s. Larry Fitzgerald leads the NFC in receiving with 49 catches for 742 yards and 5 TD’s.  The ‘Nals also have two other league receiving leaders in Anquan Boldin with 42 grabs for 514 yards and 8 TD’s, and Steve Breaston with 39 catches for 503 yards and 1 TD. Breaston, the 2007 5th round pick of the Cardinals from Michigan, has certainly displayed the skills that didn’t have the team sweating when free agent Bryant Johnson left for the 49ers. The Cardinals running game is a bit down this year with their premier back, Edgerrin James, going for 380 yards and 3 TD’s, but rookie Tim Hightower, the team’s 5th pick in the 2008 Draft from Richmond, has shown himself to be an NFL caliber back and the clear heir apparent to “Edge.” The ‘Nals are going to be on full offensive battle stations against the Niners, so Messrs Singletary and Manusky had better have something prepared to try defend the impending onslaught.  On the other side of the ball, the Cardinals certainly can be scored on, so the Niners should able to get points. The Cardinals are currently favored by 9 1/2 points. Hopefully with two weeks to prepare, the Niners can make this a very competitive game, and not get embarrassed on national TV.

    They’d better D-Up big time because they are playing in AZ and the Nals want to put a little more distance between them and the Niners in the division race. Look for Hightower to have a good game as he is now the starting running back, with The Edge being benched.
