78 Days Until Kickoff

When the Cards don’t have an athlete wearing the days corresponding jersey number in 2021 I’m going to drop a quick stat, a “did you know” or maybe even a “you ain’t gonna believe this” below. You’re gonna need to click each day to find out what you get….

Stat of The Day: In 1951 Johnny Unitas started his career at UofL with 78 consecutive passes without an interception. That record stood for 46 years until Mike Watkins, who backed up Redman and Ragone from 1997 to 2000, threw 83 consecutive passes without a pick to start his career.

Where’s the dang Mike Watkins statue?!? Mike, thoughts...???
