Texas native Kyler Murray was never a Cowboys fan because “they were always ass”

The Cardinals and the Cowboys have had a one-sided rivalry over the years. The Cardinals regarded the Cowboys as enemies; the Cowboys regarded the Cardinals as a mild annoyance.

Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray recently spiced things up with this explanation for the fact that he wasn’t a Cowboys fan despite growing up in Texas (via the Blogging The Boys Twitter account): “They were always ass.”

Murray is only 23. The Cowboys have not been a high-level contender in his lifetime. Indeed, the Cowboys haven’t played in the NFC Championship during Murray’s lifetime. In contrast, the Cardinals have been to two of them — and one Super Bowl.

Also, the Cardinals have a 5-1 record against the Cowboys over their last six meetings. On a Monday night during the 2020 season, Murray and the Cardinals torched the Cowboys, 38-10. Even with that recent run by Arizona, the Cowboys still lead the all-time series, 56-33-1.

The 91st meeting happens this season, when the Cardinals visit the Cowboys in Week 17.

  1. I always knew the Cowboys were something.
    Thanks to Kyler for finishing the sentence.

    Jerry Jones legacy without Jimmy Johnson continues…continual “ass”.

  2. Got That Jerry? Under your pathetic “management” younger generations of native Texans grow up rooting for other teams. But hey – as long as you’re always the center of attention, who cares, right? Right…?

  3. That’s ok, the Cowboys were never interested in a 5 foot tall QB, who can’t decide if he wants to play baseball or continue pretending he’s an NFL caliber QB.

  4. Cowboys fans can be super obnoxious. Phoenix is the land of transplants so finding a diehard cardinals fan to argue with the Cowboys fans is so hard you have to ask the actual Cardinal players on the team.

  5. Yes, running qb’s are hot in the nfl though Super Bowls are won by passers. Defenses find a way to adapt to runners. Kyler is a great talent but takes off too quick. He has a long way to go. Chicago Cardinals/St Louis/ Az Cards= 0 Super Bowls wins under the Bidwell family

  6. Fantastic assessment by Murray. I love the honesty, especially when it can be backed up

  7. Wow. Time flies. The Cowboys last made the NFC Championship game back in ‘96 when they beat a 26 year old Favre. Favre is now 51.

  8. Kyler’s dad, Kevin, was the QB for Texas A&M in the 80’s, so Kyler grew up around Texas football. Maybe he’s too young to have experienced the great Cowboys teams, but he’s well aware of their history. He’s only 23, so forgive him. That’s how kids talk nowadays. Sounds like my son. Lol

  9. It’s crazy the cowboys haven’t done squat in 25 years but they still have more Super Bowls then the eagles , wft, giants …

  10. This is funny!! Lebron grew up a fan bc Cleveland and Cincy were ass and Lebron is my age so as kids we saw the Aikman/Smith/Irving/Sanders years. Hating on Jimmy for not winning more SB? Hard to capture lightning in a bottle that many times. Guy earned his credibility.

  11. He’s not wrong. The Cowboys have been garbage for 20+ years. A whole generation of fans have grown up knowing the cowboys suck. Honestly I love it.

    Yet the Cowboys had no problem with Deon Sanders playing MLB and for them at the same time. They also had no problem drafting Troy Aikman who was only 4 years removed from being offered a MLB contract right out of high school. Imagine a season where 7-9 wins your division, but you don’t even qualify for the playoffs. Enjoy!

    So true. Back when I was at Arizona State the garbage Cardinals upset the Eagles and not one person said a word to me. But when the Bears beat the Eagles, I had to hide out for 3 days.

    Nobody cares about old ancient rings. Win something this century and we’ll talk.

  15. If you’re only a fan of a team because they win, then you’re not a fan. You’re just a hanger-on, a bandwagoner.

  16. I remember a simpler time when kids grew up as a fan of their local teams, before the internet and Sunday Ticket made it possible to watch every game.

    Now, kids only want to be fans of winners and bandwagon hop. It’s kinda sad, really.

  17. Jerry’s a guy that’s easy to root against. I’m an American and not once have I considered them to be mt team.

  18. All Cowboys fans can hope for is that Jerry goes to his “heavenly reward ” & Stephen Jones knows how to be a team manager.OR they can be held hostage for decades like the Cardinals have been with the Bridwells…

    What was Jimmy’s legacy again after the Cowboys?…

    —————-

    Drafting Jason Taylor, Zach Collins, Patrick Surtain, and Sam Madison in the first draft and making Miami the #1 defense in the NFL.

    JJ did his part. He built a championship level defense. 38 and 39 year old Dan Marino’s ego not being willing to admit how far he had fallen from his prime and embrace changes to the offense as he aged ( a’ la Elway in Denver) probably kept him from another shot at a SB.

  20. These front-running millennials & Gen-Xers now pick from winning teams who they want to cheer for and who’s gear they want to wear.
    That’s why LeBron James grew up a Cowboy & Yankee fan. Then he fools everyone into believing that he loves Cleveland.
    A lot of older fans on here grew up loyal to certain teams, whether they won or not.
    A kid like Murray doesn’t understand that kind of loyalty.

  21. That’s hilarious. An Arizona Cardinal is talking smack. He obviously doesn’t know his own teams history.

  22. It’s na free country and everyone is entitled to their own opinion… Kyler’s on this topic vibes for me!
