    That's it in a nutshell for me.

    Agree.

    He is not learning how to set his feet and throw along with other flaws.

    Is the QB coach not coaching him up, or is KM not listening?

    Banned for 3 days. Personal attacks aren't allowed. Don't defend your attack like you were justified doing so.

    That's my opinion.

    At what point does drilling to improve mechanics morp into interfering with a QB's natural talent.

    My guess is that the coaches have decided that it's better we rely on KM's natural talent than to mess with his techniques during a season-in-progress.

    It this the best way to build yourself a Pro Bowl QB? If it works, KK is a genius. If it doesn't, he's what Harry calls "a fraud." Right now, we're in the midst of a losing streak - which doesn't bode well for KK.

    At no point.

    Better mechanics never makes anyone worse. Natural talent is over even magnified by better technique.

    i think this is wayyyyy more lack of offseason than during the season

    the time to fix your golf swing isnt on the range 20 mins prior to playing

    i think you can emphasize fine tuning mechanics during the week -- but not the big stuff. During a play, you want your QB with a clear mind, not thinking about where his feet are.

    I'm calling my shot, we're making the playoffs this year. Now whether or not we make some noise remains to be seen. I think we're going to finish the year Strong. Could just be gas though...

    We have to remember Murray has always been so much more talented that everyone else he has never had to learn to adjust like he does now in the NFL. He also didn’t get much experience in college so he has a big learning curve. This year has not been perfect but he has improved LOTS from last year. I expect next year we will see an even bigger improvement as he keeps learning and understanding to read defense.

    Agreed. Next year had better not be improvement, though; next year needs to be full-on arrival. It kind of sucks that we need him to be all everything for us this year, so it's understandable that he's not. It's only his second season. By year 3, that rookie contract is running down, and the excuses will vanish. "Oh, but he's still learning" won't mean a doggone thing. Can he get there? We'll see.

    Man Aaron Rodgers is one lucky QB got to sit back and learn for years before having to step in. NFL teams just can’t do that anymore but no one has patience for a young QB thrown into the fire with little experience. Kyler has even less than most QBs coming out of college. One has to wonder how Kyler would look with a coach like Andy Reed? Is KK the guy? We have to have patience unfortunately as we have who we have, but an NFL experienced offensive kind I think could really benefit this team. Even if it’s just a OC we need some better construction and consistent offense IMO. It can’t be all or nothing every time they step on the field.
