Some 4,000 Show Up to Greet the Cardinals


Maybe they didn’t win the big one, but that didn’t stop some 4,000 fans from welcoming home the NFC Champion Arizona Cardinals after the Super Bowl XLIII loss to the Steelers on Sunday night. “You guys make it so special,” coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “Thank you for coming out and giving us this little lift as we go forward to next season and get us back to the Super Bowl again.”

The team was back in Phoenix on Monday, not only to give back to the fans, but to already start putting what could be an offseason of change in motion, as the team has a number of free agents. Included in that list are QB Kurt Warner, and leading tackler Karlos Dansby.

“I could not have been more proud of being a part of a football team, a football organization or a football community as I was this year in Arizona,” Warner said. The QB was almost able to pull off the comeback Sunday, as he threw for 377 yards and three TD’s, but the defense folded late and couldn’t stop Ben Roethlisberger or Santonio Holmes.

“We love you and we want to see you guys next year. We’re going to do it again,” leading WR Larry Fitzgerald said. Fitzgerald caught seven passes for 127 yards and two touchdowns.

    I have visual evidence that Warner’s final play was a pass, not a fumble. Its a simple post on my blog, pictures are included.
