Dansby still unlikely to remain a Cardinal

Just like last season, ILB Karlos Dansby turned his game up a notch once the playoffs began. All Dansby did in the instant wild-card classic against the Packers was tip the pass that led to an interception by Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to set up Arizona's first touchdown, strip the ball from Packers WR Donald Driver to set up his team's second TD and — last but certainly not least — make what he said was his best play ever as a Cardinal when he picked Aaron Rodgers' fumble out of the air three plays into overtime and returned it 17 yards for the game-winning score in a 51-45 barnburner. But did that effort move Dansby to the top of the list of re-signing priorities for a Cardinals team that once again will be forced to deal with a host of players with contract concerns? "I still wonder," one team insider said. "He made three times the number of game-changing plays in one game than he did all season. I still really question if the team will pay him what he's looking for."
