    I think a step forward this game was finding the receiver in the space between underneath and deep help

    since Carolina, teams (by nature, or, for the Cards) have been playing the bend but don't break game, keeping everything in front of them.

    you make them pay for that by running the ball (check) and hitting some 15 yard throws in that middle space.

    Prior games-- K1 seemed content to stay completely underneath with a bunch of 5-7 yard completions.

    Dann Quinn is an old Seattle D coordinator, so I guess expect lots of two deep -- but they changed D coordinators, so who knows

    Ive been neutral on Murray since the draft lead up but there is no denying the kid has played well when you take everything into consideration. He’s a rook and he’ll make some mistakes and play terribly at times but that’s expected.

    He was throwing the ball away instead of taking chances or eating a sack.

    He was off target early but settled down.

    The tweaks and improvements game over game are probably the most exciting thing about Kyler. He is very obviously learning and adjusting which bodes well for the future of he stays on that path.

    Makes sense because he is throwing a ton and has played like straight crap for probably 6 quarters

    It makes sense because logic predicted he would look really good and really bad at times the most logical outcome a month into.his rookie year. The ideas that he was either going to light it up, or totally suck, were both far less likely. Now, here we are 5 games into his first season and neither the hypers or the haters know exactly what to say as to how will go from here onstarting with the game in Sunday.

    It is what it is. Let's enjoy the ride. I dont know what will happen next but it's going to be entertaining is my guess.

    I was a huge Bosa fan but learned to live with the Kyler Murray pick. Hopefully Bosa will be perennially injured and Kyler Murray will continue to be healthy and develop even as teams get more tape on him. BAker Mayfield is becoming a cautionary tale of what happens to a one year wonder after opposing teams have film on him. Fortunately, I think Murray doesn’t have the horrendous lack of character that Mayfield has.

    Biggest difference between Baker and Murray is personality. Murray is confident, but even-keeled and seems like an overall classy guy. Baker is a cocky douche bag who’s has the maturity of a caffeinated preteen.

    I remember him yelling at Kansas Fans “Go Cheer Basketball” at a meaningless win, rubbing a win over OSU in their face needlessly, and spending his first full offseason planning a wedding and doing commercials. A first class jerk. That behavior wins you a lot of fans on other NFL rosters.

    This is TD% for anyone that might be confused like I was.

    He's starting to use his legs more, which will just make him more dangerous and keep opposing defenses honest. At times he plays like a rookie, but you can tell "it" is there and he will only get better. If the game slows down for him in the next couple of years watch out.
