Lastly, Kyler Murray has been a topic of heated debate around NFL circles for the entire offseason. One of our hosts has been a huge Kyler supporter, one not so much, and the other is somewhere in the middle.
We take a look at his first action in front of an NFL audience. He finished the game with a stat line of 6/7 for 44 yards and no TDs or rushing yards. The stats aren’t anything special, but those watching the game saw a comfortable and natural quarterback. It was a terrific debut from Kyler Murray, and hopefully, for Arizona Cardinals fans it continues.
Miami Dolphins – Josh Rosen’s first game and Preston Williams
After a shaky start, (interception in the first quarter) Rosen was able to put together a solid performance, and the guys discuss their feelings on the likelihood of the search for a franchise QB finally being over. He and Kyler Murray had their fair share of looks on Thursday nights.
One UDFA has reportedly been impressing in training camp and brought that impressive play to the game. Preston Williams garnered high praise from arguably the best corner ion the NFL. Xavien Howard said, “(Preston Williams) is (going to) be special. He’s still learning, just a rookie with room for improvement. He’s (going to) be a number one receiver one day. I’ve been playing against receivers all my life, so I know what it takes. When you see something special, you know it.” Williams has the podcast hosts gushing as well after some incredible catches and chemistry with Rosen against the Falcons. Can the UDFA make the team? Should Devante Parker be looking over his shoulder as a starting outside receiver?
Duke Johnson – Traded to the Houston Texans
Aside from the Dolphins and Falcons game, there was some big news that broke regarding former Cleveland Browns running back Duke Johnson. I say former because he was traded to the Houston Texans for a conditional 3rd/4th round pick. The hosts have differing feelings about the Miami native and what this means for his future. Is he a future bell-cow back or just a J.A.G.? The answer: probably somewhere in between. We take a stab at giving some fantasy football advice on the situation as well as Corey is a member of PFN’s own Expert Dynasty League and a Duke Johnson owner.
