It’s not exactly “Larry Bird is not walking through that door.”
But Larry Fitzgerald understands (as should everyone, frankly) Kurt Warner is a future Hall of Famer who isn’t playing football anymore. And obviously, it affected the Cards.
“When you have a Hall of Fame player, I don’t care if it is a quarterback, if it is a tackle, a linebacker, I don’t care where, if he’s a Hall of Fame talent (losing him) is going to be a difference,” Fitzgerald said. “It happened to be a Hall of Fame quarterback.”
But Fitz — who was close to Warner and remains so — knows Warner has moved on and so too have the Cards.
“He decided to move on with his life and pursue some other goals of his, and who are we to question what he wants to do as a man?” Fitzgerald said. “We love him and respect him, but we know this game is bigger than one person. We have to continue to go on and try and do the best we can and we want to see him do the best he can as well.”
I assume Fitz means at everything in life, and not just on “Dancing With The Stars.”
