If you want to get paralysis from analysis, try to figure out what the Arizona Cardinals social media team is doing.

In the first of two videos posted to Twitter after the NFL’s schedule release, the team spliced together clips of upcoming home game opponents mixed with Cardinals highlights on Wednesday. Many a fan and media member pointed out quarterback Josh Rosen wasn’t in the video, maybe because he could be traded in the near future if Arizona drafts fellow quarterback Kyler Murray next week.

Then on Thursday, the Cardinals released a new video featuring their road opponents … and this time featured Rosen on multiple occasions.

Here’s the first video, sans Rosen.

And here is the second video including the second-year quarterback.

Intentional? Accidental? Coincidental? Purposefully misleading?

Let’s not put too much effort in figuring this out. The only thing you’ll get out of doing that is a brain aneurysm, and nobody wants that.

Trying to determine purpose or intent in anything the Cardinals have done over the past month will make you stir crazy.

A friendly reminder that the draft is a week out. Be sure to get your mental state stabilized as we wait for the truth to finally be revealed.
