Home game against the Falcons

KM is back and the team should be fired up

Will the Oline give him enough time to make his reads?

Will he be under so much pressure he'll have to scramble?

Hopefully we can get somewhat of a run game going so he can get comfortable in the pocket and move inside it while making his reads

Defense has been playing hard, but we have so many backup type players and with so many 3 and outs they wear out

Huge opportunity for the Cardinals and KM

Go Cardinals!

It’s kind of unreal to think Kyler will go off today. We really should temper our expectations.
Then again he’s on fresh “legs” compared to everyone else.

The key is the running game. If we can run the ball with Connor like we were , Kyler could have a pretty good day.

Nervous. Feel like a game that can only disappoint with expectation so high.

Only a win with Kyler playing well will fulfil expectation where there are a dozen ways it can feel like a let down.
I get you on the nerves and a lot of high expectations. For me, we don't have to win for Kyler to show out. Our roster is too much dog poo for that. As long as he plays solid, I'll be happy. If those bad habits are back, I will be merciless on him.

No matter how he plays I would think that it makes sense to wait a couple of games before making a decision on his play.

Nah, a win with Kyler just being rusty and meh, but showing flashes would be fine, too. A loss with Kyler balling out would be acceptable, as well.

Things I'd like to see today:
-A solid NFL team style touchdown drive
-better o line play for Kyler/run game
-500% more offensive yards than our last game (somewhere around 275-300).

All of these are realistic goals and forward progress

I've tempered my expectations. I just want to see the Cardinals improve with Kyler Murray running the team.

It's all about the future.

With Kyler's return I'd like to see that mean nasty questionably late hitting defense of ours return - hoping Rallis gave them the green light - be nice to give Kyler a couple turnovers/extra drives on his first day back in the office

It’ll be interesting to see how many annoying offensive tics under Kliff are resolved today.

Late huddle breaks/needless timeouts?
Throwing short of the sticks on third down?
Wasting early downs on deep passses?
Amount of plays from under center?
