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!
