New Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyle Sloter is the latest third-string quarterback and preseason standout to gain a major following.

If you’re asking why, well, you’re never going to get an answer that truly makes sense. These things sometimes just happen.

In Sloter’s case, PFTCommenter, the co-host of the No. 1 sports podcast “Pardon My Take”, adopted the 25-year-old as his guy after coming across some clever merch and seeing him play against the Cardinals in Week 3 of the preseason.

PFTCommenter and co-host Dan “Big Cat” Katz use a delightful mix of sarcasm and with some legitimate truth and passion behind what they say.

PFTCommenter made his call before the last week of the preseason that Sloter was a QB on the rise, citing his 23-for-27 passing through three games and an overall preseason total of 10 touchdowns and one interception.

Sloter’s career has been defined by his preseason success. He was terrific for the Denver Broncos in 2017 after going undrafted out of Northern Colorado, completing 31 of his 43 pass attempts for three touchdowns and zero interceptions.

He was then signed by the Minnesota Vikings in 2017 and was on the active roster in all but one game over two years. That included another outstanding preseason, finishing with 366 yards, four touchdowns and zero interceptions with a 73.2% completion percentage.

The Vikings, though, decided they didn’t need three quarterbacks anymore. Sloter was cut by the Minnesota Vikings on Saturday, leading to some heavy criticism from his biggest supporter and an award-winning Journalist.

On top of that, a portion of the Vikings fanbase believed Sloter was worth a roster spot, especially with the way he performed compared to backup Sean Mannion in the preseason.

Sloter was signed to the Cardinals’ practice squad officially on Tuesday, serving as the defacto third-string quarterback.

Expect him to bring a lot more buzz than your traditional practice squad quarterback.
