Kyler Murray ready for moment in leading Cardinals to victory

Postgame comments in Philadelphia from Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray.

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray has played five seasons in the NFL.

In 65 games, he’s thrown for 15,647 yards and 95 touchdowns, with 46 interceptions, completing 66.6% of his pass attempts.

He’s rushed for 2,448 yards and 26 touchdowns on 425 attempts.

He’s shaken off a lot of tackles on the field and a lot of criticism off of it.

But there’s one thing that he hasn’t been able to shake – the memes and jokes about his height.

The 5-foot-10 QB dynamo continues to be plagued with jokes about his short stature, but could the tide be turning on the overplayed, tired comments about Murray’s height?

FanDuel recently posted a graphic listing the best quarterbacks in every NFL division, and Murray was listed as the best quarterback in the NFC West (whether or not that is truly the case is another story).

However, evidently, as an attempt at humor, the sportsbook’s graphic of Murray only showed part of his head, making him appear a lot shorter than the other NFL quarterbacks listed.

All in good fun, right? Not according to many replies to the post, which slammed the sportsbook for taking a needless shot at Kyler Murray’s height.
