Boldin, Breaston questionable for Birds

PFT poobah Florio is on record saying the Cardinals lose this week in Jacksonville.  And that it won’t be close.  (Vegas has installed the defending NFC Champs as three-point underdogs.)

Well, the Cardinals have a much better chance of proving Florio wrong if they have the services of wide receivers Anquan Boldin and Steve Breaston, who are listed as questionable on Friday’s injury report.

Breaston missed the opener with a knee injury, while Boldin caught just two passes for 19 yards on four targets, while Larry Fitzgerald had 13.  Both receivers were limited in practice this week, but coach Ken Whisenhunt is optimistic they will play.

The Jaguars and Cardinals are both trying to avoid an 0-2 hole to start the season.  Based on what we saw last week, they could each have improved defenses this season, although the quarterback play for both teams was not great.

And as much as it pains us, we suspect Florio’s prediction will be proven correct, no matter what receivers play for Arizona.  (And it also pains us that Florio got to pick the three easiest games of the week.  But we’ll still beat him.)

    Cards look awful this year, AND it’s an east coast 1:00 game. (10:00 am west coast)
    Cards go down hard.

    Hey Florio, from this point forward any reference to an NFL team using the word “Bird” shall explicitly be used with posts that pertain to the Philadelphia Eagles. Thanks in advance for your understanding.

    Hmm, one game and y’all know all about the Cards…your insight is amazing. I know Florio, et al, are still pissed that we made them look bad last year, and it’s going to be fun doing it again this year. GO CARDS!!!!

    However, Ratbird is perfectly acceptable for the Baltimore team.

    Rosenthal wrote the article but I was going to say the same thing. Eagles are the birds.

    Red32,
    I’m not pissed that you made us look bad last year.

    One game and they are already making excuses for why Warner’s heading for another benching.

    Get your head out of your ass and wipe your eyes clear son. The only Birds in the NFL are the Philadelphia Eagles.
    Unless you want to call the Cardinals the Song Birds.

    PhonyRomo is right

    Idiot florio also said they would lose each playoff game they played last year.

    Stop calling this team the Birds. The Eagles are the Birds.

    ========================
    I believe you meant to say:
    “Hey Florio, from this point forward any reference to an NFL team using the word “[shit]Bird’s” shall explicitly be used with posts that pertain to the Philadelphia Eagles. Thanks in advance for your understanding.”
    Most of us here already understood that to be the case :)
