Welcoming The Weekend With Zach Wilson Highlights

My team will not be making the playoffs, nor will they be bad enough to draft a franchise quarterback. This means they will be in football purgatory. The absolute last place you want to be. Zach Wilson has entered the chat.

Welcoming The Weekend With Zach Wilson Highlights

I have watched this at least 12 times.

You made it! It’s finally the end of another work week. Sure, the weekend has lost a bit of its luster lately, but no work is still no work, even if it is just sitting at home doing nothing. I mean, unless you have kids or a family or responsibilities and if so, that’s a “you” problem.

When Your Team Sucks

As a fan of a bad but not ‘top two picks’ bad NFL franchise, I’ve had a lot of mental gymnastics to do lately. My team, the Vikings, will not be making the playoffs, nor will they be bad enough to draft a franchise quarterback like Trevor Lawrence or Justin Fields. This means they will be in football purgatory. The absolute last place you want to be.

So what is a fan to do when faced with such realities? Mock Draft Son!!! That’s right, it’s time to look to the future and dream of that second-tier quarterback that will surely be your franchise’s unlikely savior.

Zach Wilson Is That Savior

This roundabout way of thinking is what led me to BYU redshirt sophomore Zach Wilson. Sure, he sucked last year but injuries and inexperience or whatever! These are just words! I will say what I have to, I will do what I must, in order to convince my dumb brain that this is the one. Then, when my team either doesn’t draft Mr. Wilson or he is picked before my squad is able to select him, I will flip on a dime and be certain he was not the answer while he goes on to lead another team to glory. This is the way. The way of the pointless, middle of the road franchise fan, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love football!

Josh grew up in the midwest and upon graduating from the University of Iowa he wanted to see the world. After 4 years in Jacksonville he decided he was cultured enough and moved on to Birmingham England (known to the locals as the Detroit of the UK) and then west to San Francisco before settling in NYC. He pays his bills working in finance making sure the 1% remains on top. When he is not selling his soul and unable to look himself in the mirror, he spends his time writing mean things about sports while his dog, Sweet Dee, silently judges from her spot on the couch. He is very biased and never wrong. He would also like to thank Rotowire for never changing their NBA League Pass and MLB.TV passwords from that year when he was an NBA Beat Writer for the Nuggets for some reason.
