Arizona Cardinals Putting Out Fires
But the incident grew in significance when Boldin left quickly after the game, failing to join his teammates on the field to celebrate the franchise's first Super Bowl berth.
Boldin later told a reporter that he didn't want the sideline incident to dominate the coverage of the Cardinals' accomplishment.
Whisenhunt is a proactive manager so it's doubtful he's going to let the situation fester. Look for it to be addressed thoroughly in the next couple of days and then put to rest before the team leaves for Tampa on Monday.
--QB Kurt Warner was nearly perfect in the NFC title game, passing for four scores and not having an interception. He picked up the blitz well and didn't force passes.
--RB Tim Hightower is the team's goal-line and short-yardage back, and he's excelling in that role. Hightower is a one-cut, downhill runner who doesn't mind collisions.
--RB J.J. Arrington is the team's specialty back, playing in passing situations. He's effective as a runner in space, and the club tries to isolate him against linebackers.
--RB Edgerrin James has looked great since his return to the starting lineup. He looks quicker, faster and he's breaking more tackles than he did earlier this season.
--WR Anquan Boldin should be close to 100 percent with the extra week off. Boldin has been nursing a hamstring strain and played sparingly last week against the Eagles.
--WR Larry Fitzgerald has been dominant throughout the playoffs. His 419 receiving yards in the playoffs set an NFL record.
--WR Steve Breaston hasn't been a big factor in the offense lately, but the Steelers can't forget about him. Breaston can get deep and Kurt Warner loves to throw to him on long sideline routes.
--TE Leonard Pope started and played well last week in place of injured Stephen Spach. His blocking was solid and he had a nice reception.
--TE Ben Patrick did a solid job in the run game, which is what the Cardinals want out of their tight ends. He also caught a two-point conversion pass.
--DE/OLB Travis LaBoy suffered a biceps injury last week and might not able to play in the Super Bowl.
