Congratulations to the NFC Championship Arizona Cardinals!
They were the dark horse of the NFL 2008-2009 playoffs. I wanted them to win because I didn't like anyone else, and because I like seeing history in the making. I hoped they would but didn't think they'd beat Atlanta, where they came away with a 30-24 victory after shutting down the Falcon's running game. I hoped they would but didn't think they'd beat Carolina, who they destroyed 33-13 and dominated every facet of that game. Finally, I hoped and couldn't have dreamed they could beat Philadelphia, who they shut down in the first half and the final quarter for a 32-25 victory over the Eagles. I believe this is the first Superbowl in franchise history the Cardinals will play in.
Stunned. I'm happily stunned. Arizona fans should be damn proud of their team.
Anybody but Philly......Congratulations Cardinals

Never argue with an idiot - they'll bring you down to their level then beat you with experience.
I'm happy for the cinderella team as well...although Bal or Pitt are going to be tuff tuff tuff...
Just be glad you aren't a football fan in Detroit
They did sign a new QB, his last name is Owen and he'll be wearing the number 16.
I'm happy for the red birds, didn't think I'd see them in the big dance in my life time.
While people are saying "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, ... and they will not escape. 1Th 5:3
Way to go Cardinals!!!!!

Were going to the Super Bowl, Go Cards !!!!
P.S. At least we gave the Losing Fans beautiful Arizona Weather instead of their frigid cold.

It's going to be a Cardinals - Steelers Superbowl. I'm honestly glad, because I think the Steelers are the strongest team in the Playoffs and most deserving to be there, and the Cardinals are proving that they're ever bit the contender nobody gave them credit for being. Roethlisberger, play well, but I'll be rooting for the Cards this year.
I have been a Steelers fan for a long time. But being that I found out today that Arizona has a real footbal team. I am a bit confused.......
Go Steelers!! I mean Cards............
Go Cards! I couldn't stand it if the Steelers won. I was rooting against both teams for the AFC hoping somehow they would both lose.
That said, that hit in the 4th was pretty scary.
There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.
Who is John Galt?
Hope the Cards take it all! There've definitely been some unexpected winners in the playoffs (or, as the Dallas Cowboys refer to it -- vacation).
