He got his 189 million guaranteed and has never been the same. Never will be. We caved, and we lost. We are screwed for years.
Sadly, this is the pragmatic way to looks at it.This is a little hyperbolic, but not completely wrong. He's not a great pocket passer, and I don't think he'll be back to full speed by the start of next year. Can this team sustain that? I don't see it. That'd put him at 27 by 2024, at which point that kind of athleticism would be naturally declining.
The outlook's not good.
I feel bad for KMAn already terrible contract extension now looks even worse.
I didn't think it could possibly get worse but it has.
I feel bad for Kyler but ultimately I'm a Cardinals fan, not a fan of any specific player. The only thing I care about is winning.
Keim should be fired just for the Kyler extension. It was a shockingly bad decision based on what we knew of Kyler at the time which only looks worse by what has happened since.
I feel bad for KM
But the FO caving into the demands of the contract when we had 1-2 more years for KM to show us the real player was panicking
