Arizona Cardinals fans took to social media on Monday evening after hearing the news the San Francisco 49ers had traded for Jimmy Garoppolo
There was never any doubt there would be some upset Arizona Cardinals fans after the news broke of the San Francisco 49ers obtaining quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in a trade from the New New England Patriots on Monday. They certainly did not disappoint.
While expected, it wasn’t like the Cardinals were about to go out and make a trade to get a new quarterback. They made their big trade splash two weeks ago with Adrian Peterson. The running game needed a boost as well.
That still didn’t keep fans away from voicing their opinions on the matter. Can’t say they can be blamed for being upset but should also take in account the current situation in Arizona.
There are likely plenty of reasons why the Cardinals didn’t pull a trigger to get a guy like Garoppolo. Its for probably the same reasons they didn’t pull a trigger to draft a quarterback last April.
Yes it is true, now all of the other teams in the division seem to have their quarterback of the future. The Cardinals will be there someday. It may just not be this year.
The world is not ending. It is not a nail in the coffin of the current Cardinals “regime”. There are reasons why Garoppolo is not in Arizona. ‘
Can the decisions the Cardinals make (or don’t make) be puzzling at times? Absolutely. We will never know how Garoppolo would have played out here. For that matter, we don’t know how he will play out in San Francisco either.
Don’t give up on the quarterback of the future. He is out there. It just may not seem like it right now. The Cardinals will need to address it sometime between now and April though.
