NEW ORLEANS -- Arizona and New Orleans were announcing their inactive players while I was making my way into the pressbox following an adventurous walk to the Superdome through throngs of chanting Saints fans.

Receiver Anquan Boldin, linebacker Gerald Hayes, fullback Nehemiah Broughton, safety Rashad Johnson, tackle Herman Johnson, defensive end Jeremy Clark and tight end Stephen Spach are inactive for the Cardinals. Brian St. Pierre is the third quarterback. If he plays, starter Kurt Warner and backup Matt Leinart cannot enter the game.

Inactive for the Saints: running back Deuce McAllister, safety Chris Reis, linebacker Anthony Waters, guard Jamar Nesbit, tight end Darnell Dinkins, tight end Tory Humphrey and defensive end Paul Spicer. Chase Daniel is the third quarterback.

The pressbox announcer just referred to Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt as "Ken Wizenhunt" -- another indication which team is the visitor for this divisional-round game.

Cardinals list Boldin among inactives

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Cardinals will be without receiver Anquan Boldin when they face the Packers in the wild-card round Sunday.

Boldin's name appeared on the team's list of inactive players, submitted 90 minutes prior to kickoff.

Also inactive for Arizona: Nehemiah Broughton, Rashad Johnson, Reggie Walker, Herman Johnson, Jeremy Clark and Stephen Spach. Brian St. Pierre is the third quarterback.

Receivers Larry Fitzgerald, Steve Breaston, Early Doucet, Jerheme Urban and Sean Morey are active for the Cardinals.

The ankle and knee injuries Boldin suffered in Week 17 limited him too much for the Cardinals to leave open a spot on their 45-man roster.

Mike Garafolo of the Star-Ledger is reporting that the following Giants have been released today:

QB Anthony Wright
QB Andre' Woodson
FB Robert Douglas
WR Marcus Monk
WR Brandon London
TE Eric Butler
TE Jerome Collins
OL Kurt Quarterman
OL Na'Shan Goddard
OL Andrew Bain
OL Digger Bujnoch
DE Wallace Gilberry
DE Alex Morrow
DT Jeremy Clark
DT Ogemdi Nwagbuo
LB Tank Daniels
LB James Terry
CB Geoffrey Pope
S Stuart Schweigert
OL Cliff Louis
CB Darren Barnett

Once the list is official, I'll provide some analysis. I assume the Giants will try to add Woodson to their practice squad, but another team looking to develop a young quarterback (the Cowboys) might swoop him up. The biggest surprise I see is defensive end Wallace Gilberry. Defensive end Justin Tuck was raving about Gilberry when I talked to him in Albany two weeks ago. I thought he made a pretty big impression on the Giants' coaches. Now, the Giants will try to sneak him onto the practice squad.
