Who knows? Maybe he’ll succeed Danielson one day.

Then we’ll have our QBR troll here talking about how it should be Mett as the color guy.
Good luck, Aaron.

I am very curious to hear how Murray does in the booth. Hopefully he doesn’t talk too much like Palmer
I always suspected it because of the greasy backstreet boys hair, but as soon as I saw that picture of him with the satchel, I knew TV was in his future.
And I think he’ll be great. Really hoped he would break through in the NFL.
I think we all knew it was a long shot that he would have ever been great in the NFL as a QB, but he was better than some who got a shot simply because of which team they landed on. AM was unfortunate in that because he never got more than a few trash plays in exhibition games. He followed his dream but will always wonder if he couldn’t have been successful had he only gotten on the field when the bright lights were on. Murray was smart enough, and had tools enough, to be a mid-level performer for a few years, imo, but he is smart to move on at this point given the inability to attract any interest from multiple teams.
I wish him well in his broadcasting career, although I always felt he would end up in coaching. Still would not bet against that possibility in the future. Whichever way the wind blows, he will succeed, this young man is a winner and a DGD.
Agreed, Mac. Murray was always a DGD and IMHO never really got a fair chance in the League. That happens not always because of lack of talent by the player but sometimes because of lack of talent by coaches and GMs (there are literally thousands of examples of the latter). I think Murray had at least comparable skills to Russell Wilson and Drew Brees, but he was on a team with an entrenched starter and he never got a chance to show what he could do in a real game.
Hmm, okay. I’d have worked towards coaching and admin, that’s where the dump trucks of money are.
But I seriously doubt he’ll have to put in an equal amount of time and effort here.
Grad assistant where you pretty much pay to be on staff, analyst/glorified gopher, assistant coach that bounces around, coordinator for a while just to possibly get a shot as a head coach.
Get paid now and not have to work year round. If Kirk Herbstreit can be the face of college football with as little talent and on field accolades as he had, Aaron Murray has the total package – looks, knowledge, successful playing experience. I would go the broadcasting route as well.
Exactly, all day, everyday.
He’ll need to slow his delivery just a touch. IMO
Sign AM up as an assistant in some capacity NOW!
I’m not sure his personality is big enough to be an analyst, but I hope so. If not, maybe he can parlay this into being a sportscaster for local TV station. (Looking at Phil Hartman.)
Btw, is Phil Hartman the namesake of the Hartman Fund points? Wouldn’t the Murray Fund be more palpable?
Todd Blackledge doesn’t have a big personality. He’s smart and personable and loves the game. He’s the best in the business. Murray has that with the experience of playing in the modern game most analysts don’t have.
What happened to his PhD in industrial psychology ?
