If you want a better idea of who he is I recommend the piece in today’s New York Times. Here’s a sample, “I think I was blessed with the cognitive skills to just go out there and just see it before it happens,” Murray said. “I’m not one of those guys that’s going to sit there and kill myself watching film. I don’t sit there for 24 hours and break down this team and that team and watch every game because, in my head, I see so much.”

This is not encouraging. The really good players are students of the game. They live and breathe it.

Jesus. There’s like thirteen Kyler Murray Threads. Not every post everyone makes is thread worthy.

EDIT: okay... maybe this is thread worthy. That is the last thing I ever want to hear from my Franchise QB. Quite frankly, when you haven’t had that much experience AND you’re not yet an elite passer (hasn’t even broken 4000 yards or 27 passing TDs in a pass happy league yet), saying you don’t need to lull yourself with film is quite frankly stupid.

This is why things break down for him when his elite athleticism is taken away even just a bit. And this is a system he's been in for a long time, with some variations... Imagine what happens if we replace Kliff and he needs to work out of a different scheme?

It endows him with the confidence and self-discipline to conjure a reality that matches his towering expectations, but also with an aversion to the attention that has come with his rise from multisport phenomenon to N.F.L. superstar with the Arizona Cardinals, who, despite losing their last two games, remain atop the N.F.C. West at 10-4.

But not so much of an aversion that he won’t consent to a profile in the New York-freaking-Times.

This is a truly damning quote and thought process from a guy who not only has never won anything in his life, but is looking at two straight seasons where once tape is out on HIM, his game has suffered.

Yeah... this sucks. That attitude is a massive indictment on the leader of the team. If he’s not putting in the work and thinks he can just “see everything”, it sets a horrible example for the rest of the team.

The absolute last thing you want to hear from your franchise QB. He should be watching as much film as possible and studying defenses and tendencies. I wonder if Tom Brady, Drew Brees and Aaron Rogers study film? I wonder if Peyton Manning studied film? (A rhetorical question btw)

HUGE RED FLAG!

Yup it’s actually pretty pathetic.

You know what’s hysterically laughable? You will have a whole line of posters in here who will enter this thread in the future saying it’s no big deal and defending Kyler…. Smh

Two weeks ago he was the savior of the franchise now let’s trade him lol

I honestly think he’s still clearly hurt. He’s over throwing everything that means he’s not planting his feet and driving the ball. I mean I don’t really think it’s hard to tell.

I’m more concerned that our offensive line and defense has fallen off a cliff

BLAHAHHAA not hurt…. And total junk conjecture.

Now he openly admits that he doesn’t study or watch film like he should and you could give a crap less. Laughable.
