Mistakes and great plays in Arizona Cardinals training camp will happen so beware of getting too high or too low on them
Every play seems to be under a microscope by fans and media when it comes to the Arizona Cardinals in training camp. Let’s all remember, it is a work in progress and we don’t know how all of this will translate to the regular season.
When Kyler Murray throws a couple of interceptions in practice. It shouldn’t be a big deal, but we talk about it. When he throws some great passes under pressure, it shouldn’t be that big of a deal either, but that doesn’t stop us from talking about that.
Certainly there are those that take training camp with a grain of salt. Same with the preseason games. Good plays and bad plays are all part of the evaluation process both in practice and in games. This is how we get from 90 to 53 players.
However people will complain about those that get too high or low about the team. There was some chatter on Twitter on Tuesday about Murray could walk away like Dak Prescott could from the Dallas Cowboys if the Cardinals don’t lock him down with an extension.
Why are we worrying about that now? He hasn’t even made it to preseason game number two yet. The thing is Murray, other rookies, many are excited when the good happens and some place 100 percent skepticism in their evaluations when bad plays are made.
We all want to win and win now. Even with all the unknown right now with the Cardinals roster on both sides of the ball, players and coaches have one thing in mind, winning.
There is no shame in believing this team can win. They won’t win a Super Bowl this year. They could surprise and make the playoffs if all cards fall right.
It’s a stretch, sure. On the flip side, two camp interceptions or a couple of starting offensive linemen missing some practices and preseason games isn’t the end of the world either. We don’t need perfection, just a team that will compete.
Yes, we will talk about all of that. That’s what we are here for. Just remember it’s preseason. Take it for what it’s worth. It’s ok to get excited, many of us are excited but the real judgement will come starting September 8th.
