The anti-Murray group on this board are still upset because they bought into keeping Rosen & drafting Bosa/Williams. They can't let it go that they were wrong, so they nit pick Murray. The kid is 23 & has all the tools to be great. Is he great RIGHT NOW? No. But, he's pretty damn good. I disagree with you in that his mechanics are poor. He has a short, quick release. And the ball explodes off his hand. You may be referring to the fact that he sometimes throws off his back foot. I don't necessarily see that as poor mechanics. Sometimes it's bad decision making, but not always. I recently listened to Dan Marino talk about how we will see QB's more and more capable of doing that. And that was a positive in his book. Mahomes does it all the time, as does Watson. Super mobile QB's with big arms add that capability to their arsenal. I'm not a huge fan of our horizontal passes, but that's more on KK, our weak interior OL & our weak WR group than it is on Murray. I want to see Murray push the ball more down the field. That's what I'll be looking for more in year 3 & beyond. With better interior protection & more offensive weapons, I have no doubt it'll happen.
I will add this. How much better would KM have been if he had a better interior OL & a true #2 WR in 2020? I'm gonna say quite a bit better. Who's fault is that? SK is in charge of the personnel so..............lol. Sure, there's things he can improve on just like any QB but at his size the interior OL is very important. The thing I worry about the most with KM is batted passes at the LOS.

surprised this one wasn't the headline, considering what happen last time he was on the DP show, lol
Maybe it's the Arizona media he doesn't like lol. Seemed happy doing this interview.

Agree with your points. A weak interior OL is kryptonite to a mobile QB like Murray. Exactly why we struggle so much against a team like the Rams that can supply so much pressure up the middle. We will continue to struggle against them until we fix our interior OL. As you said, we also need a bonafide WR2. That position disgusted me last year. I thought they were a lackadaisical group that ran poor routes, quit on routes, or flat out ran the wrong routes. A new WR coach hopefully will help too. IMO, they can only resurrect Kirk's career if they play him in the slot. Hate to say this, but Fitz has to either retire or be relegated to back up. Bottom line, Kirk cannot play on the outside. I'm hoping the new WR coach can either further develop Johnson & Isabella or make the decision to send them packing. Time will tell with both of them.

1. Let Jerry Sullivan pick a WR in the draft or pick which one to sign in FA.

2. Hopefully Shawn Jefferson lights a fire underneath the asses of Johnson & Isabella? He was an NFL WR for like 12 years I believe so the man knows what he's doing I'm sure.

I agree 100% with both points. I really like the Jefferson hire. He will bring some much needed intensity to that WR group. Hiring him was akin to signing Watt. Kudos to Keim for realizing that last year's team literally had ZERO players or coaches that brought the level of leadership necessary to win consistently. I truly believe that is why we saw such huge swings of play from this team. When they went into a funk, there was no one there to pull them out of it.
