Kyler Murray: It’s my job to know offense better than anyone

AP

Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald said recently that rookie quarterback Kyler Murray knows the offense being installed by head coach Kliff Kingsbury better than anyone else on the team and the rookie isn’t going to argue with the team’s veteran leader.

Murray played in a similar offensive system while at Oklahoma and Kingsbury said that gives him a leg up on some “terminology and concepts” that others are seeing for the first time. Murray also noted that knowing the offense inside and out is a pretty big part of the job.

“Is it true? I’d say obviously I’m more familiar with it,” Murray said, via AZCentral.com. “Coach Kingsbury obviously knows it the best. But yeah, obviously with [Fitzgerald] being a veteran and not having to come to every OTA and stuff like that and me being there every day, studying every day, yes, I do know it better. But that’s my job.”

Murray said more than once on Tuesday that he thinks the offense can be “dangerous” once everyone is on the same page. A desire to put that kind of unit together is why Murray and Kingsbury are in Arizona, although just how dangerous they’ll be in 2019 is a question that can’t be answered until they’re on the field with other teams.

  1. NFL bout to get taken over by Murray in Week 1. Dude can throw it and run it and knows how to avoid big hits like Russell Wilson. Watch out NFC West you have officially been put on notice.

  2. It’s too bad Larry Fitzgerald isn’t putting in the same effort as the rookie to learn the new offense. That’s why Fitgerald has always been a very good receiver but not a great one

    Not a great receiver? Lol we have an “educated” fan on our hands here!

  4. LOL…big talk for somebody who’s never played an NFL down and has one year of college experience as a starter. The only thing Murray knows better than anyone else is what Kliff Kingsbury “likes” in his offenses as the Cardinal offense, according to KK, is still coming together day-by-day with input from his fellow (more experienced) coaches. KM should just keep wait and let his play speak for itself, if indeed, he is the diamond-in-the-rough, that’s being marketed. Larry Fitz has forgotten more than this kid will ever know and has the class to always find the best in his teammates.

  5. He does say obviously a lot. Then again, it is obvious that he and Kingsbury would know the offensive playbook they’ve run for years better than the guys who haven’t. Let the haters’ tears flow!

  6. Wait! Did he just throw shade at Fitz for not being there for the whole OTA’s? Translation: “Obviously I know it better than you because I obviously showed up every day… obviously”.

  7. This is what “Leadership” looks like folks…! Confidence and attention to details from KM is what will make this team click. The rest of the team will be listening intently. Keep up the good work Son.

  8. The NFL is not college football.

    I give the kid credit for hyping up the fans, but he is in for a rude awakening.
