Javon Hargrave Knows Aggressive Pass Rush Has ‘Got To Play Smarter’ Against Kyler Murray

When it comes to the pass rush, Mike Tomlin likes to say that he’d rather have the say ‘whoa’ than ‘sic ‘em’. That’s generally true, but when working against a mobile quarterback, you sometimes need that more deliberate approach to avoid getting gashed.

That is the balance the Pittsburgh Steelers are looking to access today against Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals. Murray, the first-overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, is actually the Cardinals’ leading rusher this season with over 400 yards and four touchdowns, and they frequently carry out designed runs for him.
