Fitz at Thanksgiving, over “mean” Floyd or Q

Posted by Darren Urban on December 5, 2013 – 2:33 pm

Larry Fitzgerald knows what he is doing in front of the cameras. He’s made it an art form, and he’s very honest in admitted he’s not going to deliver bulletin board material. Then, again, he’s also really good at good-naturedly jabbing friends of his. So it went Thursday, when he was asked about Michael Floyd, and if he could see comparisons between Floyd and physical former teammate Anquan Boldin.

“I don’t like to compare my teammates,” Fitzgerald said. “Anquan is Anquan. Mike is Mike. Let’s put it like that. They both are really good players. I had a lot of quality time with Q earlier in my career and now later in my career with Mike.

“I see a lot of similarities in terms of the toughness and the meanness out of both those guys,” Fitzgerald added, and then you could see he really understood what he was saying. “They are both really mean dudes,” Fitz said with smile.

As opposed to your “niceness,” Fitz was asked?

“I’m a lot nicer than both of those guys,” Fitzgerald said to a chorus of laughs. “You’d like to have me at your Thanksgiving table much more than you would those two.”

    I love having Mike Floyd on our team. You can always compare this player to that player, but Floyd is a beast. Awesome skills and mean spirit to boot. GREAT. Cardinals need more Floyd’s on the team.
    As far as this coming draft, I hope we get another Cooper quality lineman with 1st pick, then a big, strong and fast cover man for tightends. After that don’t care.

    This is kind of really early to predict next seasons roster moves so here is what I think:
    Quarterbacks: Carson Palmer, Drew Stanton
    Running Backs: Andre Ellington, Stepfan Taylor
    Wide Receivers: Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd, Andre Roberts, Jaron Brown, WR Teddy Williams
    Tight Ends: Rob Housler, Jim Dray
    Offensive Linemen: Jonathan Cooper, Lyle Sendlein, Bradley Sowell, Eric Winston, Daryn Colledge, Bobby Massie, Nate Potter, Earl Watford

    Defensive Linemen: Calais Campbell, Darnell Dockett, Dan Williams, Alameda Ta’amu,
    Linebackers: Daryl Washington, Karlos Dansby, John Abraham, Sam Acho, Matt Shaughnessy, Kevin Minter, Alex Okafor, Marcus Benard
    Cornerbacks: Patrick Peterson, Jerraud Powers, Justin Bethel
    Safeties: Tyrann Mathieu, Rashad Johnson

    ST: Jay Feely, Dave Zastudil, Mike Leach

    Resign: LB Karlos Dansby, WR Andre Roberts, WR Jaron Brown, K Jay Feely, P Dave Zastudil, LB Matt Shaughnessy, OT Eric Winston, TE Jim Dray, LB Marcus Benard, WR Teddy Williams, G Paul Fanaika, OT Bradley Sowell, DT Alameda Ta’amu

    Cut/Released: LB Jaspar Brinkley, LB Lorenzo Alexander, TE Jake Ballard, CB Antoine Cason, TE Jeff King, TE Kory Sperry, RB Alfonso Smith, CB Javier Arenas, C Mike Gibson, CB Bryan McCann, DE Frostee Rucker, S Tony Jefferson, QB Ryan Lindley, WR Brittan Golden, SS Yeremiah Bell, DE Ronald Talley, Rashard Mendenhall
    -Rucker has done so well as a backup, Yeremiah Bell has done a superb job as Strong Safety, and Rashard Mendenhall has improved every game. Bell is aging, Mendenhall has been inconsistent though, and Rucker is a reserve that they would love to keep but need to make room for younger defensive linemen.

    I expect to have more draft picks than what we are guaranteed to have next season

    Bell has been lit up at SS. You don’t release players like Brinkley and Alexander 1 year after you signed them as free agents when they are performing well, you would take a big it in salary cap/ dead money.

    Why not Cut Andre Robert and get a Young Wide Receiver in the draft that isn’t Ryan Swope beside he STINK!!!!

    Is Alexander performing well? He was injured and he missed a lot of tackles. The Jaspar Brinkley option though makes sense since he is a reserve. He has played decently

    joe hoist-

    You only take salary cap/dead money hits on players who have large signing bonuses. If we cut Brinkley next year, which will most likely happen if we’re going to be able to re-sign Dansby, he will save us 2million in cap space while Alexander might be safer because his cap space value if cut would only be 555,000. However, if we keep Dockett and attempt to re-sign Shaunessy then he may have to go as well.
