If there’s only one thing you take from this video, it should be the fact that DeAndre Hopkins handles his business like a G, while Kyler Murray, on the other hand, does not — and none of that is surprising, whatsoever.

HBO premiered “Hard Knocks In Season: The Arizona Cardinals” on Nov. 9. Featured in this particular episode is a verbal scrap between Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray and wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, with Hopkins accusing Murray of having terrible vision and completely missing him on the field.

“What you lookin’ at, bro?” a frustrated Hopkins asked his quarterback.

Not a bad question considering how bad Kyler Murray was in this particular game.

The Arizona Cardinals took on the Seattle Seahawks and suffered a 31-21 loss with Murray only throwing for 175 yards. As far as Hopkins, he only landed five targets, making four catches for 36 yards and a touchdown.

And instead of calming down his angered wide receiver, acknowledging his own trash play and taking control of his leadership position, Kyler Murray completely breaks down and reacts like a 14-year-old boy who can’t get his PlayStation back — something that we’ve seen in the past from Murray. All Hopkins did was ask him where the hell he was throwing, that he wanted to win, and Murray’s first initial reaction was to pout and run away from Hopkins.

“Calm the fuck down!” Murray yells at his head coach Kliff Kingsbury.

Murray is the one playing terribly and making the Cardinals lose. His receivers are accusing him of having no sight and maybe that’s why he’s so mad — because he knows he’s the reason why Arizona is sitting dead last in the NFC West at 3-6.

You totally have to feel for Hopkins near the end of the video. When you read his lips, it looks like he’s saying, “Man, fuck this shit,” as Kingsbury was trying to get his players reorganized, and you can just feel that it was directed at Murray.

The Arizona Cardinals will stay bad for the rest of the season, there’s no way around that. Kyler Murray puts up decent numbers, but it’s nothing spectacular, and that attitude of his isn’t getting anybody anywhere. But you know that entertainment value is going to be great on “Hard Knocks” as a result. Heck, the more dysfunctional, the better.

You gotta hate it for DeAndre Hopkins, though. All the man wants to do is win football games.
