Kyler Murray wants to add an extra S to “Dallas.”
Murray was born and raised in Texas, went to high school in the Lone Star State and started his college career with Texas A&M before landing with Oklahoma.
While he was drafted to play west of Texas with the Cardinals, the Cowboys were in Murray’s DNA growing up, right? Not so fast.
When asked if Murray was a Cowboy fan in his youth in a video that recently surfaced, the Cardinals QB had a quick, pretty hilarious, response:
“F— no,” he said. “They were always ass.”
Semantics aside, Murray, a two-time Mr. Football award winner in Texas, has something of a point: At just 23 years old, Murray was born after the Cowboys’ dynasty years of the early ’90s, not seeing a true championship contender out of Big D in his lifetime. Since 1997 — Murray’s birth year — the Cowboys have just four playoff victories, the most recent coming in 2019.
Murray and the Cardinals played the Cowboys in 2020, and Arizona tuned up Dallas to a final score of 38-10. Murray, though, completed just nine passes out of 24 attempts in the victory. He did have two touchdowns in the effort.
Murray will have another chance to wreck Dallas during the 2021 season: Arizona and Dallas play on Jan. 2, Week 17.
Murray can only hope that the ‘Boys will still be buns then.
