Former Arizona Cardinals corner is right about Kyler Murray
Former Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson clarified his comments regarding quarterback Kyler Murray on Thursday.
Regardless of how the Red Sea wants to spin it, Patrick Peterson is right about Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray. He is also right in saying that he did not intend to disrespect Murray, as he practically mentioned his comments regarding the fourth-year quarterback in passing, and it wasn’t like Peterson spent an entire segment berating the two-time Pro Bowler.
But that didn’t stop Murray from taking to Twitter and retaliating, which displayed yet more immaturity in the former number one overall pick. Immaturity that has really started to show given his heated arguments on the sideline earlier this season to his hurried press conference to take jabs at critics regarding the ill-fated independent study clause in his lucrative contract.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback needs to accept Peterson’s help
On Thursday, Peterson provided more insight regarding his “Kyler Murray don’t care about nobody but Kyler Murray,” quip. Here is what Peterson said about the Arizona Cardinals quarterback:
"“What I meant by my comment was when you’re a franchise quarterback you have to carry yourself a certain way. So if you’re having bad body language, pouting, moping on the sideline, what type of energy do you think feeds off to your teammates?“”That’s what I meant about Kyler. He cares about himself because he’s not putting the team first. When you make a bad throw, and you come off to the sideline, you’re dropping your shoulders, how do you think the defense feels? If our starting quarterback don’t have any energy, no fire, that we can win this game, how can we? – Patrick Peterson via ESPN.com."
And Peterson is absolutely right about Murray. This was something I started to really notice in the latter half of 2020. It seemed as though every time something went wrong on a passing play, whether a bad throw or a dropped pass, Kyler, had the hands on his hips, slumped his shoulders, and wore a disgruntled look.
There was rarely a moment where he clapped his hands following a botched play and encouraged his players. In all honesty, I was a big fan of Murray’s once upon a time. Until I repeatedly saw what Patrick Peterson is now talking about. A player with, at best, iffy leadership ability, and one who pouts, and pouts often, when things don’t go his way.
