Cardinals’ rookie QB Kyler Murray has aspirations to be the ‘best to ever play the game’

Published

As if being the first overall pick doesn’t add enough pressure already.

Rookie quarterback Kyler Murray, who was selected first overall by the Arizona Cardinals in the 2019 NFL Draft, isn’t phased by the expectations placed on him because he is planning to exceed that by a million.

Not only does he want to prove his doubters wrong, but he wants to be among the all-time greats by the time his NFL career comes to an end.

“When I left Texas A&M…nobody thought I could throw…I’m short and I can’t throw. It’s a bad combination.” said Murray.

“What fuels me?…I would like to be the best to ever play the game.”

The 22-year old, who is listed as 5-foot-10, completed 29 of 54 pass attempts for 308 yards, and threw for two touchdowns and one interception in the Cardinals’ 27-27 tie vs the Detroit Lions in their season opener on Sunday.

It was a solid performance, but it’s only one game. He’s certainly got a long way to go before being even near the conversation of the all-time greats.

Just days after Jalen Ramsey asked to be traded from the Jacksonville Jaguars, there have been no shortage of suitors for his services.

While fans are digging deep into all the rumours and potential destinations for the All-Pro cornerback, many have been left wondering why exactly he asked to be dealt in the first place. The answer is simple.

“All I care about is winning, man. Shit,” said Ramsey.

“Everybody know that. I wanna fucking win, straight up. Excuse my language. That passion, that fire, that heart … I’mma continue giving that as long as I’m here.”

The 24-year old still intends to respect the organization, and says he will suit up for Thursday night’s game against the Tennessee Titans if he isn’t traded beforehand.

Ramsey, who was selected fifth overall in the 2016 NFL Draft, has compiled 202 combined tackles, 45 passes defended, nine interceptions and one touchdown over a span of 50 games and three-plus seasons with the franchise.

He is also a two-time Pro Bowler, and was selected to the first All-Pro Team in 2017.

The Jacksonville Jaguars acquired some much-needed quarterback insurance on Monday.

Shortly after learning their no.1 quarterback Nick Foles will be out indefinitely and undergoing surgery later this week to repair a broken clavicle, the Jaguars have decided to acquire Pittsburgh Steelers back-up QB Joshua Dobbs in exchange for a 2020 fifth-round draft pick.

Dobbs, 24, appeared in five games with completed six of 12 passing attempts for 43 yards in his limited playing time with the Steelers last season. He will still remain as a back-up for the time being, as rookie Gardner Minshew has been upgraded to starter.

Foles, who signed a four-year, $88 million contract with the Jags this offseason, sustained the injury in the first quarter of the team’s 40-26 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 1.
