A gigantic thank you letter to the Broncos from the Cardinals
The fans of the Arizona Cardinals would like to thank the Denver Broncos after their trade with the Seattle Seahawks for quarterback Russell Wilson.
Dear Denver Broncos,
The fans of the Arizona Cardinals would like to thank you from the bottom of our souls for pulling off a trade with the Seattle Seahawks to acquire your next franchise quarterback, Russell Wilson. Your heroic endeavors have alleviated ten years of misery at home.
The Cardinals had a 1-7-1 record against Wilson at home. A streak that wasn’t broken until 2020 during an overtime classic.
You see, those home losses were the microcosm of Arizona’s last few seasons. For some reason, Seattle dominated on the road to the tune of only allowing a total of 18 points in a three-year stretch from 2014 to 2016 when these two matched up in the desert.
That’s not the only reason we’re thankful. After the NFC West had been the best division in the NFL since roughly 2008, the competition only got tougher and tougher. Taking Wilson away will return the NFC West to a more manageable situation for the Cardinals.
Thank the football powers that be, Russell Wilson will hardly see the Arizona Cardinals anymore
Only having to see Wilson once every four years will delight Cardinals fans. No more 27-second scrambles only to find a somehow wide-open Tyler Lockett for a season-collapsing loss. No more Madden video game-style plays where Wilson never goes down. No more Doug Baldwin catches, no more Marshawn Lynch runs.
Denver, your move has put Seattle into the basement in the blink of an eye. Barring a big trade again for a franchise quarterback, you have made Arizona’s path easier to the Super Bowl. For that, Cardinals fans thank you.
Sending them Drew Lock was a chess, not checkers type of move that was the icing on top of the cake. As long as the Cardinals can take care of the end of the season for once, Seattle will be seeing red for years to come.
Once again, thank you, Denver Broncos and John Elway. Drinks are on Arizona fans anytime you’re in town!
