The Arizona Cardinals were just on the receiving end of one of the worst blow outs in the history of the National Football League, losing a road game by the score of 58-0 to the Seattle Seahawks. The Cards committed eight turnovers in the ugly loss.
Vince Young is still a former Pro-Bowl quarterback out of work, who seemed to have let himself go. He claims he is not broke, but many will tell you a different story. On Sunday, Young reached a new level of desperation, asking a current member of the Cardinals for a favor.
Young took to his Twitter account to reach out to Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald. His request was simple.
“You know I can help tell coach,” Young tweeted to Fitzgerald.
Unfortunately, there may be a few problems with Young’s request. First, it is uncertain whether or not he could help. I’m not sure that anyone can help this team. But if Arizona does decide that they are in the market for a former quarterback, Young would likely not be the first phone call they make.
Second, in terms of asking Fitzgerald to tell coach Ken Whisenhunt that he can help, after watching yesterday’s annihilation, I’m not sure exactly how much longer Whisenhunt will be coaching in Arizona any way. When you lose a football game by a score of 58-0, it is generally not much later where some people start to lose their jobs.
The Cardinals are going nowhere this season. After a hot start that included winning their first four games, the Cardinals have now dropped their last nine games, highlighted – or lowlighted – by the 58-0 thumping at Qwest Field. While it is arguable that Young may actually be a decent upgrade over John Skelton, Ryan Lindley or Kevin Kolb, if he ever comes back, don’t expect the Cardinals to reach out to Young just because he is bored and broke at home.
Not even Fitzgerald has that much clout with the current Cardinals’ brass.
