Interesting stats when Kyler runs the ball.

Obviously this past Sunday it was a conscious choice not to used designed runs for Murray.

He rushed six times vs. ATL, seven vs. HOU and then then only once vs. LA.

The question is why?

Like @cardcrazy pointed out, the path to winning is using K1's elite mobility. So why did we not try to do that this past Sunday?

And also if were really and currently auditioning him to be our QBOF, why not let him showcase his entire skill set?
Beacause theyre acutely aware of KMs abilities in those areas. What they need to see is progress in the long game improvements that will help him become a more rounded, fully capable of realizing his abilities, QB. One with solid technique for the position, not one that relies solely on his athleticism and street ball mentality.

Besides, theyre not trying to win. If I had to go all tin foil hat, the new regime has already assured Kyler he's fine for next year, but in order to have a career with longevity like, say an Elway, or Rodgers, winning titles in their second decade in the league (close enough!), he needs to not play to his instincts, and play within the system.

If the system is not tailored to fit Murray’s skillset, then they are trying to develop him into something different. IMHO it’s too late for that. If the system you’re trying to force doesn’t involve Kyler running or rolling out to pass then good luck. In the end people will get fired and us fans will continue to be frustrated.
