No. Maybe it's a byproduct of the last two games being against strong defensive fronts, but he's still largely a one read and go QB. Both picks he's thrown he's had open receivers and cleaner lanes.
He has to improve in this category to get into the next-level conversation
What is the next level conversation? Elite?
I agree with the first part. However, ints werent so bad.
3rd and 2 at the start of the 2nd half. Play is designed to Edmunds.
He gets in motion and the LB follows him.
However, its dependent on cutting Chase Young down.
He's not instead Kyler forces a pass and the LB breaks it up as well.
However, even though Edmunds is the first read. The pre-snap read shows that Hopkins has space on the opposite side. Could have easily got the first down as he was open on the slant.
2 of the top 5 longest throws (air yards) in week 2.
So much for the perception Murray is only hitting dump off passes!
Work in progress. 2 games out of his rookie year. And those were two legit front 7's he faced. And he'll face many more.
The pass to Isabella was in the air for 63 yards and was a frozen rope.
He does fail to read progressions too often, but my bigger concern is the way he often stares down that primary receiver. The smarter safeties, like Adams, will eat him alive. Closely related, he still doesn’t look off safeties. It’s not surprising there are issues like these. He certainly wasn’t a polished QB when he arrived. In college he simply didn’t have to be. However, his ability to become elite will rest on his ability to become a more accomplished QB. Will he recognize the need for change and accept it? I have no doubt he can do it. He’s an elite runner now. If he can develop more advanced QB skills, he can become awesome.
This is where his lack of starts in college shows. There are just certain aspects of QBing that you only get through game reps, film review, and top coaching. This all said, he has consistently elevated his over the past year and it is tough to imagine him not working on this as well. This is where having Kliff as a HC will benefit Murray. We all know Kliff will dedicate the time working with his QB.
In the Baldy's breakdows this week he speaks to how he is holding safeties with his eyes.
The TD to Nuk was a right read, and he crossed the field with his progression to find Nuk wide open.
In another clip he stares straight down the middle of the field at the safety before whipping his eyes right for an out route completion.
This is seriously being overblown. Does he have a chance to be even better? sure. All QB's could be better.
Is he not doing it or not good at it? Heck no man.
Our offense is 50 to 60% short or horizontal passing where the first read is the only read. This is not an issue right now folks. Timing and familiarity are his biggest opportunities right now. Not this.
I think Kingsbury has been very Transparent when talking about Murray.
He tells it like it is in an eloquent way as compared to Arians. Kingsbury KNOWS what Kyler can be. I believe he knows how to get him there.
Kylers biggest challenge is to understand the little things he can do to make his job easier. I still don’t think he always locks on his primary receiver. As time passes and he gains experience he will eventually eliminate his primary receiver before the snap.
A short frozen rope.
