You can’t start a fire
You can’t start a fire without a spark
This gun’s for hire
even if we’re just dancing in the dark
~Bruce Springsteen, Dancing in the Dark
Those lyrics from the Boss’ 1984 hit pretty much sum up all the news that has emerged about the Arizona Cardinals’ quarterback search. Thanks to the NFL lockout no news is the norm, except the news that is manufactured.
The hired gun looking to spark a fire with his opinion Tuesday was the NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi. Although noncommittal on a specific name, he did provide a blueprint of what type of QB the Cardinals should be looking for.
“I think you really have to ask that question backwards,” he told Sports 620 KTAR’s Doug and Wolf. “What player’s skill set fits what Arizona needs to do offensively. That’s what happens often times when you get involved with a quarterback. You try to fit a quarterback in.”
