The Arizona Cardinals have been a complete mess this season, currently sitting at just 4-8 on the season. There has been plenty of criticism to hand around, but former Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson seems to believe a large portion of it should fall on quarterback Kyler Murray.
“Kyler Murray don’t care about nobody but Kyler Murray,” said Peterson. “That’s just a matter of fact.”

Peterson played with Murray in Arizona for two seasons, and it doesn’t seem like the two players are on the best terms at the moment.
Murray was made aware of Peterson’s claims about him, responding to a tweet about the situation and publicly denying it.
“This isn’t true… You on some weird s— Patrick,” Murray tweeted. “You got my number, if you really felt like this as a “big bro” or “mentor” you supposed to call me and tell me, not drag me so your podcast can grow…”
It’s unclear exactly where Peterson’s beef with Murray began, but this disagreement between the two certainly has many around the NFL world talking.
I propose we solve the Kyler Murray vs Patrick Peterson beef the only way I believe it should be:
With an epic rap battle.

It certainly seems like someone will take the fall in Arizona for this disaster of a season.
Considering the organization committed to Murray long-term with a massive contract extension last offseason, it’s unlikely to be him.
That leaves head coach Kliff Kingsbury as the likely fall guy, which Peterson also detailed in his interview.
“Ain’t no maybe. He will be,” said Peterson when asked if Kingsbury will be a “scapegoat”. “The crazy thing about it, the guy who hired him will still have a job.”
