A chat, Fitz, A-Dub and a towel in Belize

Posted by Darren Urban on June 8, 2011 – 2:38 pm

A few notes on a Wednesday afternoon, after pointing out I will be hosting a live chat (right here) tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. Arizona time (3:30 p.m. EST). I’ll go as long as there are questions to be asked. Anyway …

– Larry Fitzgerald is doing the interview rounds right now (looks like sponsor EAS is hooking him up with whomever wants to talk to him) and continuing to say he wants to stay in Arizona. This I absolutely believe, and, as I have previously mentioned, I do not believe money will be an issue. I believe he’ll get what he wants from the Cardinals. That said, I have to disagree with those who have said this leaves little wiggle room for Fitz (sorry, Dave Burns) because saying you want to stay and actually staying are absolutely two different things. He’d be saying the same things if the money was going to be an issue, which it won’t. In that case, he’d just say, “Well, I wanted to stay but the Cards didn’t pony up.” In this scenario, it’s the quarterback/offense that needs to be upgraded. I think that will happen, and I still think Fitz will remain a Cardinal. But until things are tweaked (and that can’t happen until the labor situation sorts itself out) Fitz’s future remains relatively vague regardless of his interviews.

– It’s been just about a year since we took a trip out to North Carolina and finally got a chance — after he had spent 10 years as a Cardinal — to tell the Adrian Wilson story. And put it to video (in two parts). Here in the dead of this offseason, a chance to re-visit it, if you hadn’t read/seen it already.

– Finally, staffer Scott Gavin just got back from a vacation in Belize (ask him about the night in the jungle hotel room with the bats, big brown spiders, cockroaches and, as a capper, the huge scorpion on the inside of the bed’s mosquito netting). One night on a cave tour, they met a girl from North Carolina who happened to bring a certain towel with her. Small world …

    Hey Darren,

    This doesn’t really fit in this entry, but if a towel in Belize does I guess it matters not.

    Watching Ryan Williams highlights he looks like he can be an exciting back. I’m a little bit concerned about his running style and rarely shielding the ball with both hands. In the NFL the players tend to go after the ball a bit more than in college, so I hope that his approach changes.

    Mark Ingram seems to do this a bit more, not that there was a choice between them.

    What’s your take on this given that the number one issue with the RBs were fumbles – except for mighty Hypen.

    …and yes only one way to find out.

    Did Scott Gavin go on vacation or was he on a mission trip or some reality television program?

    Thank you for letting me know where not to vacation.

    Go Cards
