Like someone born into any rivalry, Cardinals running back Beanie Wells isn’t exactly sure why he hates a certain opponent more than the rest. Just that he does.
“To be quite honest, I hate the 49ers,” Wells said to KTAR’s Doug and Wolf on Friday. “I have no clue, once I got here and put on this Cardinal uniform it was
like instant hate for the 49ers. I’m looking forward to
playing them this year and getting after it.”
It’s not exactly Vikings-Packers or even Patriots-Colts, but it’s good to see some passion in the NFC West, arguably the worst division in football for five years running. (Darnell Dockett and Vernon Davis have also done their best to hype up the rivalry.)
Cardinals-49ers will take on a different feel this year with Kurt Warner gone, which isn’t such a bad thing for Arizona. The 49ers swept the series last year.
