Arizona Cardinals emerged as a hard-working unit in the 2021-22 season when they reached the NFC Wild Card round before losing out to LA Rams. This made everyone have high hopes for the team this season. However, the reality has been quite opposite after winning just 4 of their 11 games wherein their latest loss came without Kyler Murray.
Murray has been side-lined due to hamstring problems, and this probably motivates San Francisco 49ers to thump them 38-10. That being said, according to some pundits there is no bigger culprit for Cardinals’ struggles other than Kyler Murray.
Hall of Famer Steve Young and former Cardinal Larry Fitzgerald and former Pro Bowler Robert Griffin III. The latter emphasized on how Murray’s attitude has hampered the working culture in Arizona.
Robert Griffin on Kyler Murray
“You pay the man $230 million, there must have been something that you saw that you liked. For me, it just seems like Kyler Murray’s on his own sheet of music when he’s playing the game. He’s on the sidelines, he’s having arguments with the head coach. It’s like David Ruffin in The Temptations, right? And Kyler Murray is David Ruffin,” Griffin said.
This only encouraged Steve Young to reveal his brutally honest thought on Kyler Murray and how he has tons to learn to maximize his prowess.
“I think everyone here on this panel are saying, ‘Please Kyler, go back to school. Tighten it up.’ …We know you can handle all of it, but you cannot be the know-it-all that’s gotten you this far but won’t get you the distance. Change your game, figure it out, so everyone can start to resonate with you,” Young added.
