Larry Fitzgerald excited for Kyler Murray to take it to the next level

Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray and wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald aren’t working together during this pandemic-affected offseason, but they have been talking, and Fitzgerald likes the enthusiasm coming from his young quarterback.

Fitzgerald said today that Murray is eager to get the team together and to prove he can build on a promising rookie year.

“Talking to him, he loves being around us,” Fitzgerald said. “He wants to take this to the next level and build on what he was able to accomplish last year, NFL Rookie of the Year. He’s got a lot of guys who want to play well for him, and he wants to do the same for us. Hopefully we will be able to do it here pretty soon.”

The 36-year-old Fitzgerald wouldn’t have come back for another season if he didn’t have confidence that the 22-year-old Murray and the rest of the Cardinals’ roster could win.

“We have some great, talented players individually, but you’re only as good as your collective team,” Fitzgerald said. “We have to get on the practice field. We have to work through some kinks. We have to get new guys acclimated to what we’re doing. I think everybody is anxious to get back to work and get on the field, kind of see exactly what we have.”

The Cardinals have missed the playoffs for four consecutive years, but Fitzgerald seems to think this could be the roster that reverses that trend.

  1. This season I expect them to be tougher and ready to pass the Rams in the NFCW. I would not be surprised if all four teams are within 2 games of each other, from top to bottom.

    Kyler Murray sucks. What has he done?

    #changemymind”

    He’s accomplished wayyyyyyy more than you, and he’s 22 years old.

  3. I like a QB that fade back, scan the field and PICK the d apart…not a huge fan of the running QB.

  4. Sorry but a 5’4 QB ain’t gonna make it and never will. Kliff “white privilege” kingsbury is going to lead the cardinals to another losing season. Maybe he’ll become NFL commissioner after that. Seems to make sense based on his career trajectory.

  5. So he is going to improve from mediocre to barely average? Sounds exciting.

  6. Tua Tagovailoa > Kyler Murray. 🐬 Sorry wrong “greater than” sign. Derp! Tua is still better than anything Kyle Err… could ever dream of. 😁

  7. Murray is a QB that fades back, scans the field, and picks apart the D. He also has wheels.

  8. Fitz is really saying thank goodness someone to take the pressure off me for a change. This old body surely does appreciate it. Truth be known Fitz will probably add O’Brien to his Chirstmas card mailing list.

    ====================================

    If by greater you mean that Tua is greater at breaking bones every time his body touch’s the ground, then by all means ya he’s wayyyyy greater than Kyler Murray.

  10. For all those naysayers, thanx for a good laugh… Fitz, Kyler, Hops, Kirk, Drake, etc. This will be a fun year!

  11. Fitz is a class act. It’s a shame he’ll never get a ring.
