A few days ago, ESPN College Football analyst Kirk Herbstreit said he thinks that both college football and the NFL could go without in 2020, leaving the Arizona Cardinals off the field
What if what Kirk Herbstreit comes to fruition? What if the Arizona Cardinals and the NFL do not play at all in 2020 thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic?
It’s something probably a lot of us have thought about but don’t want to admit could be what happens. Luckily there is still time to make that decision.
As of today, the NFL is still holding the NFL Draft in April. It will be interesting to see if they release a schedule like they normally do about a week or so prior to the draft.
The Arizona Cardinals are supposed to host a home game in Mexico City. If the games do go on, does that one still happen in Mexico? MLB already canceled the Arizona Diamondbacks games in Mexico this summer no matter when everybody comes back, if they come back.
We must look at this from a positive standpoint. The Cardinals will still have DeAndre Hopkins. Could they find themselves another top receiver in 2021 and pass on 2020? Would a missed season still have Larry Fitzgerald returning in 2021?
We could have a couple seasons worth of draft picks that take the field in a year. That seems to be the biggest positive from missing an entire season.
Luckily the Cardinals don’t have any major injuries they are dealing with from either the latter part of the 2019 season or the offseason but had they been it would certainly allow further healing time. There will most definitely be teams with players in that type of situation.
Yeah, it would be a bummer if there was no season. We’d manage to get by though. For now, let’s just hope that life can somewhat get back to normal this summer and an NFL season can be salvaged.
