Kyler Murray: We need to get the little things right

The Cardinals were 6-3 and looking like a good bet to make a run at the playoffs after DeAndre Hopkins reeled in a Hail Mary from Kyler Murray to beat the Bills in Week 10, but the season went the wrong way from there.

Arizona lost five of its final seven games and missed the playoffs for the fifth straight year. Murray said that he’s confident that the players the Cardinals have are capable of a better result in 2021, but that the team needs to stop “taking the little things for granted” if they are going to improve on last season.

“We started out hot, and we were kind of a team where you just didn’t know what we were bringing to the table each and every Sunday, just kind of going with the flow,” Murray said, via Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com. “Those organizations that are used to winning, they do everything right, and I don’t think that we are there yet. And I think that’s what we need to get to doing is, do everything right, the little things right. The little things matter in the grand scheme of things.”

Turnovers, third-down conversions, and red zone work were among the little things that Murray thinks need to be the focus if that playoff drought is going to come to an end.

"I had a little shoulder deal during the season which caused me to kind of get out of whack as far as mechanically, throwing the ball and stuff like that, which, I was fine, but I want to get back to myself," Murray said. "If you go back and you watch my college highlights and then if you go watch this past year's highlights, my release is a lot longer due to me having to deal with being a little hurt, banged up."

That’s literally what I just said i.e. “and himself” he’s including himself... it’s not a knock lol

He put out that live stream of him breaking down film a couple weeks back and he blamed himself for a big sack and talked about how he just didn't do what he did in practice

Stop leading the league in penalties, many of them self-inflicted. There were waaaay too many defensive pass interference and offensive false starts last season, compounded by unreliable field goal kicking and poor play-calling late.
