The Cards have basically resembled a dink and dunk WCO only without productive TEs and lack of execution.

Since the Hail Murray, Hopkins has a total of 10 catches for 103 yards. Man, throw the freaking ball downfield! Yesterday, the longest play was their first to Isabella..WTH? Kingsbury and the Air Raid? LMAO. It’s the Despair Raid that has this team in a near tailspin.

Which tells me he can’t throw far. His shoulder is hurt. And they are trying to win on smoke and mirrors. But in all honesty I have posted this in other threads. Drake gets 1 yard or Zane makes a FG. We win. If Kyler makes 1 more yard late in 4th. We win. That is why he wont change unless Kyler is healthy. And honestly we should have made those plays

KM cannot step up in the pocket and earn the extra time for a deep passing route to develop. His vision is blocked and the DL can throw up their arms and knock down his pass. His angle of delivery---even on deep balls---leads to a low trajectory coming out of his hands---also increasing the chance for a blocked ball. He still needs work on the mechanics to throw after leaving the pocket. He is going to get our WRs killed with flutterballs to the middle of the field.

The occasional connection in the middle is the exception and not the rule. We saw two 'Hail Murray' passes to the middle in the Pat game. Don't count on them as the way to move the offense.

You can argue about KK's decision making and player execution but its not like this is the 2018 Cardinals.

The baseball throwing motion is the way Murray gets velocity on his throws. He needs to get a lot of body motion in his throws. If you ask him to throw the ball using a standard QB motion, he's going to fail spectacularly. That is why teams are beginning to realize one way to neutralize him is to force him to step up which really messes up his throwing motion.

Maybe, he did let one semi long one go to kirk on the sideline though - so that makes me wonder.

Special teams cost us that game period. We got cutesy on one of those returns and didn't kick it into the endzone on purpose than our coverage blew it.

and no one has said as much.

but solid job distorting others arguments. Always makes your own look good.

That can be fixed by component interior play

1-3 in past 4 games is not drama, it’s a trend.

And a desperate last second screw it throw away from 0-4. And two of those losses were against Miami with a rookie and one of the worst Pats teams ever, especially on offense.

Some fans seems content as we currently have the 7th seed despite a hard downward trend in the teams performance. Especially on offense and coaching.

There are 3 teams 1 game behind us and while we play the Rams who will surely own us the Vikings play the Jags and the Bears play the Lions. The Niners play the Bills which is tougher, but I wouldn't be surprised if they win that one.

By the end of next week odds are that we are out of the playoff spots as the Vikings will be 4-1 in their division and we will be 2-2.

The Vikings still have to play the Bucs, Bears and Saints. But we have the Rams twice and the Niners getting healthier.

Kliff needs to sort himself out. But I just don't think he can, otherwise we wouldn't be in this situation already.
