“It happened against the Dolphins,” Murray said during an appearance on PFT Live. “I don’t know if you saw, I ran into a dude like third and long, one of the downs, whatever, that started it off. Then the Seahawks game I landed on it first drive. That’s kind of when it really started. . . . I couldn’t really — I wanted to stay in the game for my guys against the Seahawks. I wasn’t running around as much taking hits. I think that affected it. After that game I was fine. Obviously, had to play through it a little bit. But uou take hits here and there and you keep playing, and it was fine. I was good throughout the year. I don’t think it affected me as much as people think it did.”

This should be fun...

Comparing up to and including Miami to the 7 weeks after (not counting last game where he had only 11 pass attempts)

Pre Miami Game Murray had 100.9 average QB Rating. After Miami 89.99

Average YPA went from 7.72 to 6.67

Rushing Per Game from 68 to 29

Yards per Rushing Attempt from 7.43 to 4.91

Completion Percentage not a huge dip but big with the reduction in YPA from 67% to 66%

Passing TDs from 2 a game to 1 a game

It is a clear across the board decline from that game forward.

Would love to compare that to other QBs. His play disipated considerably around the middle of session. Injuries could explain it, but most NFL players play thru injuries at a high level, even as bad as needing surgery after the season.

Yea many many players and QBs have played through injury and at high levels. Even Murray himself said it didn’t really effect him and he was fine???

Every NFL player, including quarterbacks, are playing hurt through midyear.

He is downplaying it for sure. He never even owned the injury til now.

After he said he was fine he says "I mean I had to play through it"

The biggest change is the rushing. He even admits that

They better have a decent back up next year.

If his injuries, no matter what he will publicly admit, are turning him from Superman to Clark Kent...

If they had a better backup than Streveler, it would have been so much better to give him 2 weeks off to heal, than to have him play through it.

With Hundley in for some games last year we would have been a playoff team. Many decisions just made no sense. Typical Cardinals' wasted season.

Clearly there was more that we don't know about, with Kliff, Hundley and Streveler...Was Kliff just trying to outsmart everyone else? Did Streveler beat him in an arm wrestling competition? Did Hundley sleep with Kliff's girlfriend?
