Patrick Peterson called out Kyler Murray, and now Murray is responding. Peterson joined former NFL superstar Bryant McFadden on the “All Things Covered” show for an interview, and it took an ugly turn when Peterson said Murray only cares about himself.
His exact quote was “Kyler Murray don’t care about nobody but Kyler Murray.”
Well, Murray did not like the comment and responded to the veteran defensive back.
Peterson talked to reporters at ESPN about his comments.
“What I meant by my comment was when you’re a franchise quarterback you have to carry yourself a certain way,” said Peterson, who was teammates with Murray for one season with the Cardinals in 2020. “So if you’re having bad body language, pouting, moping on the sideline, what type of energy do you think feeds off to your teammates?
“That’s what I meant about Kyler. He cares about himself because he’s not putting the team first. When you make a bad throw, and you come off to the sideline, you’re dropping your shoulders, how do you think the defense feels? If our starting quarterback don’t have any energy, no fire, that we can win this game, how can we? That’s what I meant about Kyler caring about Kyler. I didn’t mean any disrespect, in any fashion or form. And I might not be his mentor, but these are the things, tips, that can help him be a better football player in the long run.”
Murray is getting a lot of criticism, I wonder if the Cardinals end up trading their QB eventually?
