Steve Keim is in his 7th season as general manager of the Arizona Cardinals
If it were up to many Arizona Cardinals fans, Steve Keim would have been fired as the general manager of the team a long time ago. However he is still around much to the chagrin of his detractors.
There are a number of reasons that can be given to his ouster in Arizona. However there are reasons why not only will Keim be the GM in 2020 but why he should be the GM in 2020.
The Kyler effect
As of right now, it is looking like a home run with the trade of Josh Rosen to the Miami Dolphins in order to take Kyler Murray as the number one pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. There were certainly some critics of the decision at first, including yours truly, but at this point it is working out.
Murray isn’t perfect but he has only thrown 4 interceptions through 9 games. He is the only starting quarterback in the NFL not to have fumbled the ball yet.
This reason alone may save Keim for 2020 and maybe even beyond. It’s a big deal to get it right with the number one pick in the draft. Many teams have gotten it wrong with the number one overall.
Murray has already lead his team to as many wins as they had in 2019 and have competed in every single one of the games so far, including all 5 losses. The true test comes next season.
