The Jonathan Gannon period for the Arizona Cardinals has not gotten off to the smoothest begin. From a tampering investigation that resulted in a settlement between the Cardinals and Gannon’s former employer the Philadelphia Eagles to a jersey reveal that was extra underwhelming than something, the season is wanting bleak from the onset. Gannon has to get a squad that everybody believes goes to be mind-numbingly unhealthy into preventing form, and typically that requires some motivation.
Within the newest episode of the Cardinals present ‘Playing cards Flight Plan’, Gannon is hyping up the group in a gathering with some motivational phrases. The issue is … I don’t know if Gannon has ever motivated anybody in his whole life.
I imply, yeesh. I felt uncomfortable watching and I wasn’t even within the room. It’s not like Gannon isn’t making an attempt, I actually suppose he’s. Nonetheless, he simply has the vocal tone of an NPC from Darkish Souls who’s providing you a facet quest.
To not point out, among the questions right here have to be requested with some oomph behind them. “You bought a fireplace in your intestine?” needs to be requested with a stage of ardour that will convey the group together with you, not like a health care provider asking a affected person about his bowel actions.
You may even see it on the gamers’ faces. That is simply not getting over with the group. That is the purpose within the present the place they ship out a white scorching babyface to hit Gannon with a Stone Chilly Stunner to pop the group, as a result of the individual within the ring proper now’s simply not doing it for anybody.
I type of really feel unhealthy for Gannon, however don’t really feel unhealthy in any respect for the Cardinals. It’s evident that Gannon is likely to be in over his head proper now, however the Cardinals took a foul swing on a coach that simply had his protection fold within the Tremendous Bowl, and won’t be the identical for it.
As for Gannon, I hope he has some free on-line motivational talking programs loaded up earlier than the season.
