Kliff Kingsbury deserves credit for the meteoric rise of the Arizona Cardinals in 2020. Due to the presence of the San Francisco 49ers, Los Angeles Rams, and the Seattle Seahawks, the NFC West is one of the most competitive divisions in the NFC.
Former Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray is another shining light in the Cardinals offence along with recruit, DeAndre Hopkins.
Reputed NFL Hall of Famer Warren Moon made an appearance on The Herd with Colin Cowherd. The 9-time Pro Bowler issued a warning to second-year Kyler Murray with respect to his dual-threat abilities.
“It was something that I always cherish…I was a guy who could throw the football, that was my strength. But I also had athletic ability enough to move around and be able to do other things. So you got penalised a lot for that because you were too good an athlete.”
“You know, I worry about all these young guys who have that athletic ability like Kyler, or like Lamar Jackson, because they run the football so much, you know, it’s just a matter of time before they take that one big hit….So it’s just a matter of time. If you have that ball in your hands too much in too long as a quarterback, though defence is going to get to you,” Moon said on the show.
Kyler Murray has been playing at an MVP calibre level in 2020. He has already thrown for 2,600+yards with 19 touchdowns. However, he has 8 interceptions from 10 games.
The youngster will be disappointed by Thursday night’s loss to the Seahawks. He will get the opportunity to redeem himself when the Cardinals play New England Patriots in Week 12.
