Why Ari beating Atl was a good thing...

Ive enjoyed reading the posts on this site for a while now and this is my first thread so take that for what it is worth...

Ari's win is truly a blessing in disguise just as us losing to the Gmen and now dodge the Eagles was also a blessing-

First of all now the Cards are not going to sneak up on us- we have the tape of their D-line blowing up the Falcons and their Linebackers playing out of their minds-

(side note how is edge running only a little over 70 yds on 16 carries establishing a run game)

Edge is playing for money plain and simple- he will be jacked up for this game cause it will determine millions of dollars for his last contract- just ask Peppers (who I love as a player) but who has clearly stepped up in his contract year- BUT we do not have trouble with bigger backs running on us, it is the smaller scat backs that take advantage of our over pursuit defense - ie Brayton, thomas davis-

Warner is susceptible to pressure and mistakes no doubt and our outside pass rush has been great so far this year- but a good QB ie Brees/Warner can avoid this and step up and gain time to throw- Warner is no threat to run so if we can establish any type of pressure up the middle (i.e. middle linebacker blitzes) to go along with Brayton (at his natural DE position) and Peppers- warner will cough it up- this is where Kemo being back will help in two ways 1- he will be in on 1st and and downs and allevaite the time on the field for the rotation of Hilee/Lewis/etc who waste a lot of energy on pass rush, and Kemo soaks up blockers who absolutely overshadowed Davis and Beason in the giants game.

Godfrey is going to have to be on top of his game they are going to attack both him and lucas- they have recently rediscovered that a good TE/slot receiver can wreak havoc on a cover two and that will fall squarley on Godfrey- he will have to be disciplined enough to overcommitt to these type of underneath passes and allow several deep plays as inevitabley with Boldin of Fitzgerald will get behind Lucas-

If we can control the run from the line of scrimmage and allow the uninspired Trgo to go into nickle packages early and unleash both corner/zone blitzes from marshal and up the gut blitzes from Davis (not Beason, who is still better that Davis in coverage) we will absolutely control this game

Long read I know but I have had a lot on my mind not said

welcome...and i agree with everything you're saying especially the part abt us losing to the gmen...i would much rather play the cards than the eagles right now even though i think the cards will be tough

another thought abt how their dline dominated the game i think darnell dockett will be a free agent this yr...we could possibly get him for cheaper than haynesworth and he doesnt get injured every other game...him and pep could be a nasty duo if we could sign both of them

Also unfortunately we have the Sat night game which will negate any supposed time lag/time zone effect of Ari having to play at 10 am PT/1 pm ET

Although the one less day does benefit the Boldin being hurt- but he will play this guy played with a metal plate in his head keeping his sinus fracture from opening his brain through his nose!!!! R U Kidding me! I know hockey players play with type of injury all the time but lets face it Hockey players are in a mental state all to themselves...

You have made some excellent points here. I really hope our D-Line comes out as fired up for this game as the last, because they were a big reason for our success (obviously).

As for our linebackers, they are more solid than most people actually give them credit for. Hayes is a solid MLB who doesn't light it up or get gaudy numbers, but is Mr Dependable in the middle. Karlos Dansby is the leading tackler in this team, and I hope we can keep him, but the chances are someone will ridiculously overpay him (see Calvin Pace to the Jets). On the edge, Chike Okeafor isn't much to write home about, but Bert Berry is playing on a high level at the moment, and can be a force on the edge.

On Dockett, sorry, he recently resigned his deal and has 4 more years left I think, but he will need restructuring eventually, but he ain't going anywhere.

And our ground game, well, bear in mind that we have literally been unable to run on anyone this season realistically speaking. As far as we're concerned 70 yards is alright. Just enough of a threat running to allow us to set up the PA Pass. All things in proportion really :)

I'm glad that Arizona beat Atlanta too mainly because I think we have a much better chance of winning against Arizona at BOA than we would against the Falcons. Not saying we couldn't beat the Falcons at home but my best bet says we are better off playing Arizona.

Even if we weren't in the post season I'm glad the Falcoons went down quickly. Just can't bring myself to ever be happy for them.
