Larry Fitzgerald is down in Orlando taking part in “ESPN the Weekend” — it’s good to be an athletic superstar — and did the rounds on a pair of ESPN radio shows, “Mike & Mike in the Morning” and “The Herd.” And he talked a little bit about the Cardinals’ quarterback situation on both shows:
“I don’t know what direction that’s going to go yet,” Fitzgerald said on Mike & Mike. “I know we weren’t happy with the way last season went at 5-11 and we need to be better.” Later he once again deflected the talk about reports the team talked to him about his thoughts about quarterback. Later, Colin Cowherd asked him what he thought was better: Getting a veteran quarterback, or taking a QB high in the draft and have him play right away.
“You can see it on both sides,” Fitzgerald said. “You see veteran guys having success, and then you see the Matt Ryans and guys like that who come right in, Mark Sanchez, guys who can do it. I’m just about winning. We want to have success, and I know my coaches and teammates feel the same way. Whatever the way it is, I am for it.”
Clearly, though, Fitzgerald isn’t going to downplay the need. That was clear when Kurt Warner was brought up. “(Kurt) was the most important person on the team,” Fitzgerald said. “You can’t drive a car without a steering wheel.”
As for the potential work stoppage, Fitzgerald said he thought he’d still get together with some teammates, mentioning the players-only camp he usually holds in Minnesota late every offseason.
“We know the offense, we know our system, so we can run it together,” Fitzgerald said. “Just like we are out there running seven-on-seven without the coaches. We know the plays. We know the calls.”
