Texas native Kyler Murray was never a Cowboys fan because “they were always ass”

Kyler Murray couldn't hide his interest of still one day playing baseball. Could he use that as leverage in his negotiations with the Cardinals? Mike Florio and Myles Simmons debate.

The Cardinals and the Cowboys have had a one-sided rivalry over the years. The Cardinals regarded the Cowboys as enemies; the Cowboys regarded the Cardinals as a mild annoyance.

Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray recently spiced things up with this explanation for the fact that he wasn’t a Cowboys fan despite growing up in Texas (via the Blogging The Boys Twitter account): “They were always ass.”

Murray is only 23. The Cowboys have not been a high-level contender in his lifetime. Indeed, the Cowboys haven’t played in the NFC Championship during Murray’s lifetime. In contrast, the Cardinals have been to two of them -- and one Super Bowl.

Also, the Cardinals have a 5-1 record against the Cowboys over their last six meetings. On a Monday night during the 2020 season, Murray and the Cardinals torched the Cowboys, 38-10. Even with that recent run by Arizona, the Cowboys still lead the all-time series, 56-33-1.

The 91st meeting happens this season, when the Cardinals visit the Cowboys in Week 17.
