Arizona Cardinals' Drew Stanton trips trying to evade the rush, goes down hard

At times, Drew Stanton has looked like a competent quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals, even carving up the Packers' defense in the first preseason game.

Saturday night though, on one play in particular, 'competent' is the last word that comes to mind. A closing linebacker came off the left side, and Stanton improvised. At first, things seem to be going fine, as he pivots away from the rush. San Diego's Thomas Keiser isn't fooled, so Stanton attempts to backtrack and here's where things go wrong poorly hilariously.

If you'll excuse the Chris Berman quote, "Stanton -- back, back, back, back,  back, back...gone."

After trying to escape an untouched Chargers' rusher, Stanton wound up with a 22-yard loss after the former Detroit Lion lost a fight with gravity.

Amazingly, this isn't even the most derp-worthy moment by a quarterback of the night. Drew Stanton: thank your lucky stars tonight for Geno Smith's epic face-palm.
