My pick of the Cardinals has nothing to do with my hatred for the Squeeelers. Here's my scenario:

Cardinals come out with single back, 3 WR sets. Spread it out. Yes the Steeler "D" is the best this year, but look at their division, Baltimore, Cleveland and Cinci...not one of them is an offensive jaugernaut.

Let them blitz with those 3 WR sets, they'll get burnt. Will they put 8 at the line with Fitzgerald, Boldin and Breaston in single coverage? Hell no. So the Edge just may get 70+ yards on the ground, then there's Hightower with another 30+, and 50+ receiving. I can see 7 in the box for the Steelers, and lots of play-faking for the Cardinals.

Now, talk about defense. Remember when the Colts limped into the playoffs, and then their Run defense woke up and dominated? Well, the Cardinals have played Atlanta (Turner), Carolina (Williams) and the Beagles (Westbrook)...not one of those teams rushed for 100 yards vs. the Big Dead this post season. And ask Delhome about their pass defense.

So, as I see it. The Cardinal defense can match the Squeeeeler defense. Can Pittsburgh's offense match the Cardinals? I don't think they will. I see it Cardinals 31, Squeeeeelers 20
