Kingsbury's well-documented deep admiration of the rookie continued Wednesday during a guest appearance on The Jim Rome Show, where the first-year coach gave high compliments of Murray and emphasized the offense would be built around the signal-caller's skill set.
While it's certainly easy to project Murray as the starter in Week 1 of the regular season, Kingsbury apparently isn't ready to make that determination.
OK, the biggest takeaway from Kingsbury's commentary is coach-speak is alive and well in early May regardless how the organization feels about Hundley, who joins his third NFL team since entering the league in 2015.
"Yes," Keim said emphatically.
"You did not stutter," Eisen responded.
"No," Keim said while Eisen chuckled. "We didn't draft him [No.] 1 overall to ride the pine. I know it's a lot to put on his back, but that's why we drafted him."
Ultimately, the only way at this point for Hundley to start the regular season is if Murray suffers an injury during the summer.
And in an unlikely scenario where Hundley beats out Murray for the starting job, the Cardinals' talent evaluators might have some explaining to do.
UPDATE: One day after his appearance on The Jim Rome Show, Kingsbury made an appearance on SiriusXM's Mad Dog Sports Radio and changed his tune from "we'll see" to more commitment to Murray as the starter.
"We're going to work through that over the next couple weeks," Kingsbury told host Adam Schein. "You don't take him in our situation at No. 1 to sit him on the bench."
The head coach's comments are now on the same page as Keim's.
