Kyler Murray: It’s all about fulfilling my promise to bring a championship to the Cardinals

Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray celebrated his new contract today by making clear that he knows the job isn’t done.

Murray said the Cardinals have believed in him since drafting him three years ago, and he wants to repay that trust by bringing home a Super Bowl championship.

“It’s a blessing. I’m so grateful and honored for the confidence they’ve shown in me. The faith they’ve shown in me to take a 5-foot-10 quarterback, that’s never been done before,” Murray said. “It’s all about fulfilling my promise, which is hopefully one day to bring a championship to this organization.”

The Cardinals have improved from five wins in Murray’s rookie season to eight wins in Year 2 and 11 wins in Year 3, but they still haven’t won a playoff game with Murray at quarterback. Murray knows he’ll ultimately be judged by his postseason success, and he thinks that success is coming.

  1. Kyler better hope he’s carried like Trent Dilfer was by the Ravens because that’s the only way he’s winning a Championship with that team any time soon.

  2. The way he went about getting his contract was not typical of leadership. It’s too bad the Cardinals have to overpay because of lack of quality options.

  3. Let’s not forget that 2 of those 11 wins last year were with Colt McCoy starting at QB. Murray won 9 games.

    As for his statement – his words now don’t change the fact that his actions already said it’s all about money. The best QBs in the league already had playoff success, if not a Super Bowl win, by this point.

    And – “hopefully one day to bring a championship to this organization”? I don’t think he’s getting paid a fortune for “hopefully, one day”. What kind of goal or ambition is that? Can you imagine Mahomes or Brady or Wilson saying “hopefully, one day”?

  4. No Superbowl for the Cards anytime soon then, he’s not good enough as he has shown

  5. I find it interesting that some people complain all the time what some people make, i.e. CEO’s but no one blinks and eye when a football player makes 50 million a year plus endorsements.

  6. This kid is a joke. Cardinals overpaid for an under performer. This massive deal will hamstring them for years to come.

  7. Cards way over payed for a one trick pony that is too short to see the field when contained in the pocket…his one trick is to roll out and chuck it…$46 Million to launch deep balls. SMH.

  8. Zero chance of them winning a Super Bowl they don’t have the talent plain and simple. Now the team is hamstrung for YEARS to come with his huge contract how are they going to sign anybody?? But its okay HE got his money just like the guy in Green Bay.

    Oh, I get it, much like the Patriots and Adam V carried Tom Brady to his first 3 SB wins. Game close late, turnover, Brady passes 35 in 8 plays, Adam V FG, Pats win. Over and over again.

  10. I mean, it’s kind of crazy. He has TWO major flags. 1) A player of his stature and style has never had long term championship level success in the NFL (with the possible exception of Russ – be he is not nearly as prone to play “hero ball” as Kyler) and 2) He OOZES immaturity. There have be many comments from those on the inside about his lack of leadership.

    Maybe you gamble on a really talented dude with ONE of those shortcomings – i.e. he is an exceptional leader even if he is a risk in in playing style – but NO WAY do you gamble when both concerns are present. I think this is a huge mistake by the Cardinals.

  11. If he really believes that then can we assume he would be ok to his compensation being tired to winning a SB?

    Never been a patriot fan or tom brady fan but you do have to appreciate his game and leadership. Interesting fact and speaks on how to continue to make a championship team. Tom brady has never been a top paid qb he has averaged middle of the pack around 14 or 15th highest paid qb. These players demanding way too much money cripples there team. Every team has a salary cap so when you over pay in one position then that is much less spent on the rest of the team. So when these idiot qbs and others figure it out when they are one of the highest paid and not winning its cause you held your team ransom

  13. Zero chance he ever wins a championship. He’s a 2 read and scramble QB.

  14. It’s not going to happen to make the playoff.. Just like Russell Wilson(BLAH BLAH LOOK AT ME BLAH BLAH) attitude just like he did to Seahawks.

  15. Can’t really blame them for signing him – there sure isn’t a lot of options for a legit starting level QB. Kyler is good when he’s “on” and, of course, not injured – I’m sure the Cards are hoping to see dividends in their investment.

    Problem though – the schedule got a LOT harder than last year AND…this team is seriously talent depleted, especially on defense. Big contracts on a team that lacks a lot of real quality starters (let alone quality depth) spells trouble. Hope the Cards are happy with 7 wins this year – maybe 8 – cause I sure don’t see 11.

  16. More like, it’s about doing just enough to get paid the big bucks. And now he will fade off into obscurity. He has always just been about the money. This will go down as one of the worst contracts, mark my words.

  17. Won’t happen he won’t even make it there like Kurt Warner and Larry fitzgerald in his prime. There just ain’t no way I’m sorry

  18. As a Rams fan I love this contract for Mr October! Spend all the cap on a player that regularly fades down the stretch!!!!! Go Rams lol

  19. Murray is going to be one of the leagues best QB’s for a long time to come. He’s gotten better each and every year of his career, was a front runner to win MVP for most of last season the first 12-13 weeks until AZ fell apart due to injuries in December. He’s made the Pro Bowl each of the last two seasons, he finished last season ranked in the top 5 in almost every relevant passing statistic. To name a few he finished w/ the 3rd highest passing grade among QBs in the league posting an elite 88.5 grade via PFF & finished 7th overall w/ an 84.5 overall grade, posted the 2nd highest deep passing grade an elite 95.9 grade, had more completions on deep passes of 20+YDs than any other NFL QB with 35 2nd CMP percentage, ranked as a top 3 deep ball accuracy all 3yrs was 2nd last year, top 3 in big time throws, 7th w/ a 100.6 passer rating, 7th in ESPNs QBR, 4th in AVG YDs/Attempt AVG 7.9 YDs per pass or 8.5YD Adjusted/AVG. Murray ranked between 2nd-7th in the QB index all last season finishing ranked 7th. And Murray isn’t even 25 years old yet, he’s barely scratching the surface of his full potential just entering his prime football years. Thus far he ranks amongst the most productive NFL QBs in history to start his career.
    This next season he is primed to have one of the best top 5 offenses in football again both rushing and passing with all of the talent AZ has stacked around him. He has above pass protection up front with the OL and blocking TE’s he has around him. Arizona definitely will be in the playoffs again in 2022 and this year Murray has the talent around him to go on a run in the post season.

  20. Hilarious, I needed that laugh! Interested in getting paid, stop trying to fool
    people. We all saw you quit on your team in the playoffs & then a social media scrub of your team like a child

  21. May all of the Kyler haters be Blessed and one day come to realize their negativity, in Truth, is about themselves… This is what makes the Kyler Murray story so compelling. To overcome all of these demonic opinions and judgements and finally deliver the first ever NFL Championship to the Cardinals organization will be epic.
