    Yes this board would. Imagine if at the last moment the Cardinals drafted Bosa and he was injured and we were hearing reports that Rosen was struggling a bit and Murray was lighting it up.

    These are literally the reports that are all being told right now. Bosa is hurt, Rosen is struggling, and Murray looks really good.

    Rosen's in an active QB competition. You can surely bet that if he were not traded and was the only guy, there would be fluff pieces galore about him and his work with KK. It's the way OTAs and minicamps work.

    So why are there reports of him struggling?

    Because he's in a QB competition. If Kyler were in a QB competition next year with Case Keenum and Keenum was clearly looking better, the media would report on it.

    Ok...or maybe he looks good?

    Pete Prisco is comparing his release to Dan Marino's release. Stupid fast.

    Said he has struggled some when he gambles, but said he looks great.

    Not saying any of this is definitive, it's just that, it's much better to hear that he is already the leader of the offense, knows the offense better than any other player, has a Marino-like release, and is quicker/faster than the players expected.

    I'm sure he looks good. Sounds promising. I am sure we would be getting fluff pieces about Rosen too though. Probably not on a national scale, since it wouldn't be the hot story of the day, but no player is going to come out in minicamp and say their starting QB looks bad. This is all still in shorts with minimal contact. Go back to this time last year and you'll see both Rosen and Bradford getting a ton of praise. Hope springs eternal right now.

    Minnesota for now.
    We weren't hearing anything like this about Rosen and/or Bradford last year. Not even close.

    We still aren’t hearing about glowing reviews for Rosen. The Miami headlines have been all about Fitzmagic.lol

    Cmon Solar. I love ya man but If reports on Murray were less than flattering you would be all over this board with the I told you so’s and not downplaying it.

    The debate narrows to "Does Murray, Rosen or Bosa receive the best media comments."

    (Yawn).

    I would be, but I don't think they would exist unless he was terrible. And I don't think he will be, just middling. Not worth what we gave up for all of this, essentially.

    The microscope is on Murray right now because of all the hype. If he was even slightly struggling we would be hearing about it without a doubt.

    I disagree. It's too easy to look good in shorts, and media hasn't had a ton of availability. We're just hearing what we hear from the players for the most part, and they're not going to throw him under the bus.
