Kyler Murray Calls Out His Receivers Following Another Tough Loss: ‘You Can’t Play Like That’

Kyler Murray better be careful what he says about his wideouts.

The Arizona Cardinals QB will ultimately lose the locker room if he continues to throw his teammates under the bus like he just did with his most recent comments. The diminutive QB explained that he has told his receivers that they “have to be awake when you play with [him]” given his ability to extend plays with his legs. Kyler explained his thoughts on his wide receivers.

“I told guys you have to be awake when you play with me. No matter what the play is,” Murray said, via Pro Football Talk. “I have free reign to do whatever, so when you sleep and you don’t think you’re getting the ball- you can’t play like that. Everybody has to be head up, in the game, locked in and we just have to be better. We will be, but it’s frustrating when you lose and you felt like you could have played better in the game.”“I told guys you have to be awake when you play with me.

When it comes to how to fix the situation in Arizona, Kyler doesn’t have any answers:

“I wish I had the answer right now,” Murray said. “I’m not sure, besides, ‘Let’s start winning some football.’ The rest of the game is competitive. The first quarter, you can’t make anything happen. You can’t get anything going. It’s just bad football.”

Murray finished  the game going 37-of-58 passing for 314 yards.

The Arizona Cardinals are now 1-2 after its latest loss in Week 3 to the Rams, where the offense managed just 12 points on four field goals.

You’re not going to win when you have Kyler Murray throwing 58 times.
