Not that it is any surprise, but wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald insisted Wednesday he was not a factor in the Cards’ switch in quarterbacks from Matt Leinart to Derek Anderson (Coach Ken Whisenhunt had already said no players, including Fitzgerald, impacted the discussions).
“I want to clear the air on that one,” Fitzgerald told Bob Baum of the AP. “I had nothing to do with that. Somebody told me I was pulling for Derek. I’ve never taken a snap with Derek, so how can I vouch for a man that I haven’t even played with. … I think it’s unfair to point (to) me as somebody that would do that. I just want to win. I believe in coach Whisenhunt and what he’s done here over the years.
“Your job is not to talk in the media or have an opinion. It’s your job to go out there and produce and do what you’re asked to do.”
