    Fitzgerald a WR without an ego

    [size=13pt]Fitzgerald an NFL paradox: A WR without an ego[/size]

    by Mark Kriegel

    I make my way, along with dozens or hundreds of others, to the area by Larry Fitzgerald's interview podium, where I take a stand — literally, and somewhat precariously — on a shaky aluminum bleacher. This will be a good place to shout my questions, I figure.

    If the first five years of Fitzgerald's pro career are any indication, we will one day be talking of him among the very best to play. In this, his third straight Pro Bowl season, the Cardinal receiver finished with 96 receptions for 1,431 yards. Then he really got busy. Going into this Super Bowl with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Fitzgerald is one of only four men with 100-plus receiving yards in three consecutive postseason games. He caught three touchdowns in the NFC Championship game against Philadelphia. His 419 receiving yards are already a single-season playoff record. Jerry Rice, the previous record holder, had 409.

    Every WR has a ego. His is just hidden
    We're bringing purple back.

    Everybody has an ego. Larry's is just small enough that he isn't an asshole.

    Vikings fan here is Arizona. Fitzgerald is by far the best WR in the league and a respectable one at that. GO CARDINALS!


    *SKOL!*

    Fitz is the man... I think I'd rather have him on the team than any other receiver in the NFL atm, even Andre Johnson.

    I don't know how credible these issues are.
    People will do just about anything to get you into legal trouble when you are making millions of dollars each year.
    They just want to get a piece of the action.
    I truly believe that Larry is a respectable man, one of the better "people" among players in the NFL.
    He is a classy young guy, attribute he developed at PITT
    ;D
    "There are 3 things that sell in America:
    Violence, sex, and drugs.
    The only way you are going to make this game more appealing to the public than it was before is if there are on field orgies at halftime and the domes become massive opium dens."

    [size=13pt]Fitzgerald says he'd pitch in to keep Boldin with Cardinals[/size]

    By BOB BAUM , Associated Press

    TAMPA, Fla. - Larry Fitzgerald Jr. would look at restructuring his contract if it would help keep fellow Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Anquan Boldin on the team.

    "Someone asked me a question if I would be willing to do something to help the team, and I said, `No problem,' " Fitzgerald said Wednesday. "This opportunity right here to be playing deep in the postseason, this is an amazing feeling. I'll do whatever it takes to get back to this point going forward in my career."
