J.J. Watt's return to the gridiron wasn't enough to lift the Arizona Cardinals to a win on Monday night, as they suffered a blowout loss to the Los Angeles Cardinals in the opening round of the playoffs.

When asked about the loss to the Rams during his postgame press conference, Watt called the Cardinals' finish to this season a "massive failure."

"It was a massive failure, from what we were capable of doing, to what we showed we can do, to today," Watt told reporters, via Darren Urban. "There is no other way to describe it."

Considering the Cardinals started the 2021 season with a 7-0 record, it's a bit disappointing they couldn't advance past the Wild Card round of the playoffs.

Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray was asked about Watt's "massive failure" comment after the game. As you'd expect, he agreed with Watt.

"I agree," Murray responded. "I play to win the Super Bowl."

The Cardinals showed a lot of progress in their second season under head coach Kliff Kingsbury. However, last night's loss was so putrid that fans are a bit concerned about the future of this team.
