Another former Cardinals player is trashing his old team

2021 is the year for former Arizona Cardinals players to take out their frustrations via social media and Zane Gonzalez is the latest to join the fun.

It all started with the Patrick Peterson drama that continued from the moment he left in free agency and into the offseason. It turns out another former Arizona Cardinals player is jumping in on that craze as well. Cardinals fans remember the pain and tormenting tenure of Zane Gonzalez as the team’s primary field goal kicker.

In an upset loss that ranks amongst some of the worst in franchise history (and of course, it was to the Carolina Panthers, again) Gonzalez hit three field goals and as a result, now feels good about himself to throw shade at the Cardinals organization via social media (aka Instagram via Twitter).

Gonzalez posted a picture on his Instagram with a “shush” emoji as the caption as it showed him booting one of his kicks last season. Andy Kwong, who writes for Revenge of the Birds and has one of the more well-known Cardinals Twitter accounts nailed it on the head in how dumb Gonzalez’s tweet truly was.

Did the Carolina heat get to Gonzalez’s head? Having spent eight months just a few hours south of Charlotte, I can see how that might have happened.

Zane Gonzalez should not be talking trash at the Arizona Cardinals

Does Gonzalez need to be reminded of how badly he cost this team from reaching the postseason? The two kicks against Miami and New England that should be makeable for an NFL kicker didn’t go through when the team needed him the most.

Mr. Gonzalez, you are more disliked than Chandler Catanzaro in the state of Arizona. If you make even one of those kicks, you and your former team are in the playoffs.

To close, Mr. Gonzalez, you may have won the game with two of the best players in the entire league on the bench. Rest assured that there’s going to be a clap back if the Cardinals see you down the playoffs.

You can win the battle, but Arizona will win the war.
