    These conjectures make a lot of sense! You may not be so crazy after all! :-D

    Even aside from the rumor that Murray didn't agree to a no-baseball clause in his contract until the last minute, the Cardinals had to play it somewhat safe before the draft, in case Murray got arrested or hit by a bus. Any pre-draft offers for Rosen would have to be SO good that they'd be worth going into the draft with no QB and hoping that Murray was still "clean" and agreeable to the no-baseball clause.

    From another team's perspective, why give up a 1st-rounder unconditionally before the draft, when you can wait and see how the draft falls and whether a guy you like more is available. OBVIOUSLY the Giants preferred to spend their TOP first-rounder on Jones, and the Redskins on Haskins. So why the hell would either of those teams have given up a 1st-rounder for Rosen, without waiting to see whether their preferred guy was available during the draft?

    It makes no sense.

    FWIW- it was posted that Murrays no baseball deal is just a verbal agreement.Not in the contract. Michael Silver tweet IIRC.

    FML...

    I hope they at least put a "no drinking with Keim" clause in there. If our oversized minion of a GM stumbles and falls onto Murray it could be career ending.

    As a point of reference, Roger Goodell is 5’11”.

    I tend to disagree. The buildup and insane amount of overblown coverage afforded him has squarely placed the spotlight on him right or wrong. This picture has been painted as Murray is a savior and will carry this team to numerous playoff appearances. There will be expectations of this offense scoring 30-40 points a game. KK has contributed to this scenario with his praise of Murray. People will expect Oklahoma type offensive output with Murray and KK, anything less will be perceived as a failure. Even if Murray ends up not the problem, he will catch the blame especially if the team loses early.

    If Goodell is indeed 5'-11" then Murray is 5'-9" at best and possibly shorter.
