Even with the disappointing loss to the Dolphins on November 8th, it became evident to everyone how dynamic he could really be. Throwing for 283 yards, 3 touchdowns, and adding another 106 yards and a touchdown on the ground he proved that he is clearly not the problem.
Suspect defense and some questionable coaching calls showed what happens when you don’t give your star the opportunity to let your stars win the game. This is coming just a game after Kyler begged his coach to not be conservative and just trust him. His cries seem to have fallen on deaf ears.
Murray had gashed the dolphins on the ground all afternoon amassing his yardage on just 11 carries yet Coach Kingsbury instead went with inside handoffs to Chase Edmonds on first and second down of the Cardinals final two drives of the game.
Edmonds, the second string back, had a massive workload all game long with not much to show for it. With a measly 2.7 YPC it becomes hard to justify some of these coaching decisions. As many concerns as there may be about Coach Kingsbury’s decision making, you have to give him kudos for truly opening up the playbook for his young gun-slinger.
