As of right now, the Arizona Cardinals are the only NFC West team without a starting quarterback
Over the past several weeks there has been a lot of debate among some Arizona Cardinals fans about what the team should do with the quarterback position. Some want to trade the farm for a high draft pick. Some just want them to trade for a veteran.
It would make sense for the Cardinals to get both a rookie and a veteran. Right now though, they’d likely settle for just someone. They have a plan.
There seems to be a bit of panic among some fans after the San Francisco 49ers signed quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to an NFL-record contract this past week. It’s enough that fans are upset they didn’t see him in a Cardinals uniform.
The 49ers have Garoppolo, the Los Angeles Rams have Jared Goff, and the Seattle Seahawks have Russell Wilson. It’s February 10th but yet people seem to be panicking based on social media comments.
Why panic? The Cardinals can’t sign any free agents until March. They can’t draft anyone until the end of April. And trades are tricky. It takes picks and money to get a upper-level quarterback.
Fans complain that they lost out on Alex Smith. He is hit and miss but would likely have been a hit in Arizona. He had a very good 2017 season.
Now some fans are complaining that others want to see Nick Foles. Some think if the Cardinals trade for him it’s just another Kevin Kolb situation. It’s not. Two completely different players.
Why wouldn’t the Cardinals at least kick the can on Foles? Sure, it’s a small sample size what he did this past postseason. Let’s not forget in 2013 he threw 27 touchdowns and just two interceptions.
Sure that was five years ago but that doesn’t happen through luck. You don’t beat the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl with luck.
Right we get that he didn’t do much with the Rams or the Kansas City Chiefs. If traded to Arizona, he might not be able to repeat what he did in Philadelphia. So what? That’s why you take chances.
It’s no skin off any of our backs if the Cardinals make a move. Whatever they decide to do in the end, we support them and hope for the best.
