Kyler Murray not going to play baseball
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray was asked this week whether he could play both football and baseball
So apparently when it’s the offseason and media get bored, they ask dumb questions. Maybe not so dumb if the question is asked of Arizona Cardinals starting quarterback Kyler Murray and you know he will give an answer.
Of course he obliged the reporter and said sure he thinks he can play both sports. We all know he can play both and if there was a way to make it fit without compromise to either sport or either team he played for, he’d be all ears.
So why are we asking the question? Well, for one, people take off with it and read way too much into it. Now all Cardinals fans hear is, oh, he wants to play baseball too huh? Great, he was overrated anyway.
Talk about so not the point to the question. Which is why it shouldn’t have been asked again to begin with. It was thought all of the baseball talk was put to bed shortly after Murray was drafted last April by the Cardinals.
However, to get people talking, let’s ask the question again while the rest of the football world is currently talking about the 4 teams in the NFC and AFC Championships this Sunday. You know, in case anyone has forgotten about the Cardinals.
It’s just the timing and bringing up an old subject. Murray isn’t going anywhere. Contractually he can’t anyway. Again, why did we feel necessary to gain the sound bite.
Well because that’s how media works these days. It’s ridiculous. I’m surprised the story didn’t go as far as Murray thinking about baseball, Cardinals think about calling Kurt Warner again.
Yeah, it’s that dumb. And for those Murray haters out there, sorry to burst your bubble, but he isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. He was better than many quarterbacks in 2019 and for some of you that’s a dose of reality I know you are still not willing to accept.
