The Arizona Cardinals have never won the Super Bowl. Here’s why they won’t win Super Bowl LVII.
Even with all of the moves that Arizona Cardinals General Manager Steve Keim has made, the Cardinals lack the firepower to win the big game. Arizona got their first taste of postseason since 2015 football when they made it to the wildcard round last year.
They were promptly embarrassed, ran over, and memes were made from that epic loss.
We’re taking a look at three reasons why the Arizona Cardinals will and won’t win the big dance. The reasons below are what’s going to stop Arizona from reaching yet another Super Bowl being hosted in their own stadium.
Let’s get right into the first reason:
Reason #1 the Arizona Cardinals won’t win their first Super Bowl: Offensive line issues
The potential Rodney Hudson retirement is another one of those “peak Cardinals” moments. For the second offseason in a row, the team could see another retirement (Malcolm Butler couldn’t stand that he lost his spot out to a rookie).
When the Cardinals were without Hudson, the offensive line play was atrocious. As a result, the offense sputtered because of it.
Add in the fact that Keim knew about this before the draft and opted to trade for a wide receiver instead of drafting Tyler Linderbaum (who would’ve been on the board) instead makes this more preposterous.
There’s no fault to Hudson, and everyone makes that decision for themselves. But Keim has failed to invest in the offensive line for a very long time. Before this news came out, I had written that Arizona had failed to address the interior offensive line.
Ironic that something like this comes along with time.
