Only thing I will say to this is that it takes a rare WR in the NFL who can create separation and maintain it with a QB who struggles to get the ball out on time.
QB's in the NFL need to throw the WR's open

Like Kurt Warner used to do by knowing where everyone would be on every play so he could throw to a spot

Yep! Watch the Kurt Warner break downs of Murray on YouTube and he'll point out some of Murray's decision making. Missing the easy check downs and missing plays down field. Murray switches between being the home run king and captain check down. The balance is what's missing.

The first Rams game is the perfect balance. Murray did a phenomenal job finding the easy check downs, but challenged the Rams deep too. If you do that enough, those checkdown go from 3 yard gains to 12 yard gains.
Eh, I'd agree with Kyler that it was more about Kliff putting in the best game plan since he got there. We saw screen's to the TE from under center, proper use of tempo. Kyler was still Kyler for the most part. He had Kirk open underneath on the TD throw to AJ Green. We just outclassed the Rams that today. Total opposite in terms of play, preparation and execution in the playoff game, unfortunately.

While true we cant act like he didn't have an improvement in that area this year.

At one point he was completing nearly 74% of his throws. There had to be some level of throwing guys open going on.

To be fair he probably threw to the third least-open guy on that play. Both A.J. Green and Christian Kirk were as open as it gets in the NFL.

They were open after the throw
A defender if the pass is in the other direction has no need to stick with the receiver
However just few can make that throw

Yea I dont know what K9 and Krang are seeing. That safety is sitting on the hash where Green is going. Wesley was was the right guy to throw to in terms of pass the sticks and with the other safety biting on Chase in the flat.

#18 bit and left Green open. A good quick throw and it's a wide open TD as @kerouac9 stated.

You're not factoring in Lawrence beating Josh Jones with ease.

And more importantly, just cause the safety comes off the hash doesn't mean he cant close there. His eyes wouldn't take him completely out of the play. As Juza says he only completely moves out of the middle after the ball is let go.

Yep. He is clearly not about any nonsense and is all-in on Arizona. SMH.
The only time he took any questions at all this season was at a community event.

I bet he's not that interested in working with the Media Relations team after the way they did him at the beginning of the offseason.

The ONLY starting QB in the entire league who did not speak to the media after voluntary OTAs or mandatory mini-camp.

What is interesting is that you might argue that the biggest issue with the Cardinals paying Kyler big money is that he may not be that marketable. He isn't a great quote. Doesn't display much personality. Isn't interested in using the media to get his message out. Nothing to do with football but a big deal for Bidwill who is trying to make money.
