After a tough loss Sunday to the Washington Redskins, close to 200 fans lined up at the Free Agent Sports Fan Cave Sports Collectibles Store in Paradise Valley Mall to meet Cardinals star Running Back David Johnson. Members of the AZ Birdgang Fam were exclusively allowed to say hello, take a picture, and even got an autograph from their favorite Cardinal. We saw plenty of good items being signed; custom helmets, posters, magazine covers. Even a few UNI Mini Helmets showed up to David’s surprise.
Fans waited patiently to congratulate him on his new contract and wish him all the success in this week’s upcoming game against the Los Angeles Rams. David was gracious and kind to every fan that came his way, as expected. Kazual Sportz had a chance to catch up with him after the signings and he sounds primed and ready to take on the vicious Los Angeles Rams front line defense. The offense will certainly depend on his ability to rush the ball in order to be competitive in this weeks game.
It will certainly be a battle of the runnings backs as Todd Gurley is coming off of a win against the Oakland Raiders. I suspect that the victor in the running game will surely lead towards a very important division win. On the flip side, whichever defense can contain either running back may not be as easy as it sounds. Both backs are very versatile and have the potential to break off long runs that will exhaust the opposing defense.
Best of luck this week, David. Go Cardinals!
