Derek Anderson explodes during interview
The Arizona Cardinals were pummeled by the San Fransisco 49ers in last nights Monday Night Football game 27-6.
After the game a reporter got pummeled by Derek Anderson.
Anderson went 16 of 35 for 196 yards, 0 touchdowns and 1 interception. However, late in the game cameras showed Anderson laughing on the sideline with a teammate. In the post game a reporter, Kent Somers οf thе Arizona Republic, asked him what the context of the conversation was because the Cardinals were getting destroyed.
And as the video shows, Anderson explodes.
I took three things from this:
1. Anderson completely over reacted to the situation. He should have just moved on to the next question. He hasn't been exactly awesome on the field and now the fans have another reason not to like him.
2. The reporter asked a stupid question. What does it matter if Anderson was laughing on the sideline during the loss? Why not ask him about his ability to run the offense? Or about the coaches gameplan for the game? Instead, Somers asked about something totally irrelevant.
3. The NFL should go back to the last two years and give Kurt Warner the MVP award. The Cardinals lost him to retirement and now the team SUCKS.
