GIF: Cardinals QB Drew Stanton Sacks Himself


Carson Palmer is the starting quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals, but there is a bit of a competition behind him to see who gets to back him up next year.

That’s a great idea, as Palmer has had his injury woes in the past. Arizona is going to need a capable player behind him should the worst-case scenario occur.

Drew Stanton is one of those backups. In Week 3 preseason action, Stanton proved he may not be the guy the Cardinals are looking for anymore (via SB Nation):

Well that’s not going to win Stanton a place on the final roster with the Cardinals. Look, the offensive line probably should have picked that free rusher up.

That does not give Stanton a free pass to do his best Michael Vick impression. Stanton face-plants himself in the process. Unless you are a Cardinals fan, this is one amazing piece of NFL lore that will go down in history. Well done, Mr. Stanton.
