LISTEN: Ron Jaworski, ESPN NFL analyst

After its Monday Night Football win against the Baltimore Ravens, ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski sees big things in the Arizona Cardinals’ future.

“If I had a crystal ball, and someone said, ‘predict who’s going to be in the Super Bowl,'” Jaworski said. “I’m not going to be crazy, I’m going to tell you right now, the Arizona Cardinals have been the most impressive team in the NFC.”

In his weekly talk with Burns and Gambo on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM, Jaworski talked about the many positives he’s seen in the Cards, like the versatile Deone Bucannon.

“I just love the way he is being used by this defense,” he said. “When you figure he’s the money linebacker, as the Cardinals like to call him, and he certainly has been money. He’s one of those guys – you can put him over at tackle, you can put him over at guard and disrupt people.”

On the whole, Jaworski likes how everything the Cardinals are doing seem to be fitting into their overall plan.

“The plan is this: running the football helps the offensive line, Jaworski said. “They love to come off and hit somebody. Running the football helps the play-action passing game and also what it does is gives good angle block for the offensive lineman.”

Earlier in the season, Jaworski was concerned about the Cardinals offensive line, but he feels their play as of late has shown improvement and contributed to an improved overall grade for the Cardinals.

“They look complete,” Jaworski said. “All of the sudden Mike Iupati is back in the lineup, he had a hell of a game on Monday night. So you’re starting to see the offensive line come together. The tight ends – (Jermaine) Gresham has been a real positive guy and that’s what you want to see. You see everyone contributing right now for the Arizona Cardinals.”
