Do you remember when so many elites in the sports media were drooling over the prospect of a team drafting Kyler Murray?
With the first pick in the 2019 NFL draft, the Arizona Cardinals did just that, drafting Kyler Murray.
My position was clear from the beginning – I am all out on Kyler Murray as a starting QB in the NFL and said as much six months ago.
For the record, I am ALL OUT on Kyler Murray. Not a player I would draft. #NFL— Brad Shepard #StopTheSteal (@TheBradShepard) March 6, 2019
Today, the Arizona Cardinals were mollywhopped again – this time at State Farm Stadium by the Carolina Panthers, and their second-string quarterback.
Throughout the game, Murray looked overwhelmed and outmatched by the Carolina Panthers. Murray’s numbers were somehow better than he appeared to play – 173 yards, 2 TD’s and 2 INT’s – he was sacked eight times, largely in avoidable situations. His offense scored exactly zero points, while trailing in the fourth quarter.
Three games into his rookie season, Murray has thrown 4 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. He’s completing an atrocious 62% of his passes.
Kyler Murray looks like a high school student cosplaying as a starting NFL quarterback. I am rarely all in on small quarterbacks – Russell Wilson is an exception to the rule. Kyler Murray is the rule.
