I agree, he has stunk this year and I certainly don’t like supporting Keim backers like Quebec. Fact are this though: Kyler has shown an extremely high almost MVP level ceiling over long NFL stretches and he has as many supporters around the league as detractors.
My humble opinion: Kyler needs solid
infrastructure and culture to thrive since his mercurial personality hinders him being the guy to establish that foundation. Look at his history - Dude was the man at Allen, arguably best HS player in Texas history however at one of its best football programs in the state. Flash forward to A&M under Sumlin the drunk in a weird situation and he played terribly and transferred within a year. Then to Oklahoma and Lincoln Riley where he earned rave reviews from everyone and won Heisman. Shown stretches of greatness here yet also mediocrity playing under a bad owner, drunk GM and totally unqualified HC. Every time the culture and foundation underneath him is solid he has been a generational player. When shaky he is simply mediocre.
That being said Kyler needs to grow up and overcome since not everyone gets a great hand on the flop but it’s imperative that we do everything we can now that he has the extension to put the infrastructure in around him.
This is 100% fantasy. It's another attempt to pass blame onto the "insert things I don't like here*.
Kyler barely played at A&M and only played one season at OU. "He was great at Allen and OU where they had dominant talent" is not a ringing endorsement.
It doesn't explain in any way going from 5-10-1, to 8-8, to 11-6 under same coach, same GM, same owner and showing steady but minor improvements each year himself to the absolute abysmal, bottom of the league QB play we have seen this year.
If, as you say, Kyler can only be good was he has the right HC, right scheme, right GM, great O line, great WR's, insert whatever you like here then what's the point of him?
Any QB can be good when everything around him is good. Andy Dalton has done that. Carson Wentz has done that. Joe Flacco has done that. Cam Newton has done that. Jared Goff has done that.
That's the path Kyler is currently on.
If we have to wait for Mercury to be in retrograde over Jupiter for him to be good why pay him like a top 5 QB? You pay that money to QBs that elevate those around them. That find ways to win tough games.
Kyler simply doesn't. I absolute believe he could. If he put the work in.
The worst thing about Kyler this year is he's as bad now as he was game 1. All the things he's struggled with then he's still struggling with now. That tells me all I need to know about his attitude.
