20-7 Arizona: Will Fitzgerald ever be stopped?

The Cardinals just went up 20-7 as Neil Rackers hit a 30-yard FG with 5:29 left in the second quarter.

Here's a key stat so far in this game: Larry Fitzgerald has 122 yards in receptions. Steve Smith has zero yards.

Yes, Smith did cause a 45-yard pass interference penalty. But he hasn't actually caught a ball yet. And Fitzgerald is KILLING Carolina -- left, right, long, short -- No.11 is everywhere. His 122 yards receiving is already a postseason record for the Cardinals (and they don't even have No.2 WR Anquan Boldin available).

Carolina's last 4 drives: 2 turnovers, 2 punts.

And the game plan sucks. Boldin is out double up in Fitzy. He is tearing us up.

Then when they get the ball it total panick. long ball to smith. throw it short asnd let is run after catching it.
