    except we’re not even close to being the least talented top 10 offense in the league.

    We have a dynamic Nunber 1 pick at QB who is a dual threat unlike any other in the top ten.

    We have the best WR in the game.

    we have the sixth highest rushing RB.

    we have a very good 3rd down back/backup running back.

    And are you saying Fitz and Kirk suck? They’re not incredible #2 and 3 WRs, but they’re good enough considering all the other weapons.

    We definitely have more talented skill players than than Indy & GB. No question. They just have better OLs.

    Disagree there, I think he can even with his shoulder now if you look at the ease he can launch that distance... it's running till his shoulder heals which makes his game leery

    Since it is a team sport (from owner down to locker room attendant), we are as talented as our record says we are. The sum has to be greater than the individual parts.

    Offensive line

    hate to say it cardinals fans but we have one of the best in the business

    add that to our skill players and we are one of the more talented offenses in the league..... though with the line I think we are coaching up a bunch of average guys

    i don’t know if they’re one of the best in the business but they’re pretty solid.

    the notion that were somehow talent depleted on offense just makes very little sense to me.

    The offensive line needs to do a much, MUCH better job in pass pro. Soooo many times we'd be screwed/games would be lost if KM didn't have the legs. Way too many free runners at the QB and jail break blitzes that aren't picked up.

    Probably the worst coached easily which makes a ton of difference

    No I don't believe that.

    I think we have plenty of talent but some rather poor, conservative coaching and a pedestrian play book.

    I think it's a QB with tons of experience and the ability to read defenses well and can go through his progressions better and maybe, just maybe an OC who knows his offensive players and can really tune into what they are good at and use them to the fullest.

    We go on and on about Murray's ability to run, but what is the primary job of the QB? The answer is throwing the ball and knowing where to go with it and the ability to read defenses and go through the progressions which is what Rottenburger has the ability to do. He also does a good job of spreading the ball around and they making good use of their TEs.

    Kyler has not played well and our offense has struggled because of it. This is what a 2nd year QB normally has to overcome. The league has taken away what Kyler likes to do and has taken away his security blanket. Now KYLER has to show he can win sitting in the pocket, dissecting defenses in the middle of the field, and executing long sustained drives.

    People on here complaining about Hopkins not going deep, but Gilmore was playing him off all game with S help over the top. They were purposefully taking away the deep ball because Kyler has shown to be a streaky passer who gets impatient.

    Which is a young QB thing in my opinion (which is normal for those who may lose their minds over it).

    He hasn't played well, but is it chicken or egg?

    If Kyler not playing well because teams now know our rather limited offensive system and can quite easily take it away? Or are the opportunities there and Kyler just isn't finding them?

    I haven't had time to watch the tape yet but my feeling is that it's the former, simply because I think most of us have known for some time that there wasn't a lot of variety in this offense. It's largely been a run Kyler, throw to the sidelines offense for some time.

    I'm saying we have decent talent & a good coach who is learning on the job.
