It was an unbelievable feeling.”Sunday’s matchup is not likely to have the same energy as the championship game, though it is a battle of teams looking to remain undefeated on this young season.Besides a chance to improve to 3-0 for the first time since 1974, the game also represents an opportunity for the Cardinals to pick up their play on offense against one of the league’s better defenses. “We’re not thinking about the 3-0, we’re just thinking about going out there and playing 60 minutes of good football,” Fitzgerald said. “We need to be able to do that. We haven’t done that thus far; from an offensive standpoint we haven’t even been close.”The Cardinals have scored 20 points in each of their first two games, though they rank 30th in the NFL in total offense and are tied for last in the league with a 5.6 yards per attempt average in the passing game.“You know the way our defense is playing, the way our special teams is playing,” Fitzgerald mused, “the blocked field goals, the blocked punts.“These guys are playing lights out, it’s time for us to pull our weight.” What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald remembers the 2008 NFC Championship Game quite well.The Cardinals were facing off against the Philadelphia Eagles for the right to go to Super Bowl XLIII. The game was at University of Phoenix Stadium, and it’s the last time the Eagles played in the building. Philadelphia is Arizona’s opponent this Sunday.“I just remember, vividly, the energy in that building,” Fitzgerald said of the championship game. “When they announced us and we were coming out of that tunnel…the hair on my arms was standing up, I mean, I’d never heard it that loud.
