    I’m not terribly bothered by Murray having a bad game. Rookies have bad games, even the good ones. What I am concerned about is how he handled it. I don’t care if he’s fine at the press conference. I hate an announcer saying Murray is obviously frustrated. Dragging around and looking hang dog is not leadership form. KK should have sat him down immediately and brought in Hundley. The result is Murray continued to break down. He needs to understand he’s either the leader or he’s not. His behavior was unacceptable even for a rookie. He has a world of athletic talent but so have failures that preceded him. Much of this is on KK. Does he exert any discipline. We shouldn’t hear anymore how Murray is not used to losing. Well, he’s losing now. It’s a learning situation and behavior is something to learn. It’s easy to lead when you’re winning.

    Agreed Harry. Was calling for them to pull him. Hopefully another big lesson learned.

    Agree. I think one of the issues with the relationship between KK and KM is how much slack KK would give. KM is having an awful game. Maybe it’s the hammy that’s impacting KM’s confidence and decision making, but it’s going to be interesting seeing how KK responds when he’s asked about KM’s performance

    Agreed.

    Kliff no doubt needs to pull him ASAP. Nothing positive will come out of him playing anymore this game, it can only negatively effect him going forward.

    The Rams D has their ears pinned back & going after the QB against our poor Oline today

    I'm at the game (regretfully), and Murray has looked lost and disinterested from the very first snap. There better be some type of logical explanation for his play, otherwise, we all should be concerned about what has transpired today. Yes, rookies are certainly given the latitude of having a piss-poor outing every now and then. But from where I sat, Murray looked like he didn't want to play today right from the start. Very, very strange...

    Today he seems way over the top with his tantrums and hissy fits. I have seen smaller sample examples of this behavior all season from him. The relationship between Kingsbury and Murray could be troubling going forward. If he is hurt sit him. Wait until he is 100 %. The season is etched in stone.

    Maybe he’s just pissed at his own performance?

    Not too many "attaboys" from teammates after his TD. Hmmmmmmmmmm.

    clearly that play shows that the hammy isn’t an excuse for his performance today which many were trying to hint is likely the cause.

    Just say he sucked and move on.

    I watch damn near ALL the games. There are plenty of frustrated QBs.

    He was awful today. Leave it at that.

    His demeanor has been the thing I'm most disappointed about today. I already knew the OL and secondary were awful.
