Get Off Murray's Back!
Aaron Murray is playing outstanding. So, why are some of you being critical? Don't get it. Just bumped into a guy at the fitness center and he told me that he was disappointed with Murray's play.
What did I tell him? Told him he was crazy. Should have seen the look on his face.
What is the expectation? Perfection? That's crazy too.
Here is what I like about how he is playing. Aaron is focused on protecting the ball. Love that! But at the same time, he's letting it fly. Totally committed to his throws. No hesitation.
Have there been a few overthrows? Sure. He's hanging the deep ball out there and giving the WR a shot to go get it. Overthrows don't typically get intercepted...underthrows do. Those deep ball shots scare the heck out of the DBs and DCs. And you aren't going to hit all of them.
Murray was under constant pressure in Missouri. The O-Line had a tough 1st half. Theus was limited, with his ankle sprain. He had issues with the speed rush. Couldn't set quick enough. So, the heat was on Aaron. And he hung in there tough. Auburn's Kiehl Frasier would have thrown 5 interceptions. Our guy stood in the pocket strong and made good decisions.
Again, forget about the STAT SHEET. It's about winning. Do what it takes to win. That's what Murray's all about this season.
And this isn't "Pass Skeleton." There is a pass rush in real football and that changes everything in the passing game.
What's wrong with Murray? Nothing. Something must be wrong with you...if you're criticizing this guy.
