Boldin will play in the NFC Championship Game

As if there was ever really a doubt, Cardinals wide receiver Anquan Boldin, who missed the NFC Divisional Round as with an injured hamstring, announced today that he will play in the NFC Championship Game against the Eagles. Boldin was nearly healthy enough to suit up against the Panthers so it was a given that he would be ready to face Philly. With Boldin back in the line-up, Arizona's aerial attack is just that much more dangerous.

Boldin's return shouldn't change the Eagles game plan too much. The Eagles would have put most of their focus on stopping the Cardinals passing game even if Boldin didn't suit up. Philly will likely try to blitz Kurt Warner like crazy and dare the Cardinals to beat them with their ground game. Edgerrin James has come on of late but there is little chance he can carry a team to the Super Bowl.

It wasn't long ago we were hoping that Anquan Boldin would join the Eagles, now we are hoping that the Eagles do everything they can to shut him down. Who knows, maybe Boldin will demand another trade out of town after the Eagles beat the Cardinals.
