I’m guessing that if Larry Fitzgerald’s one-catch game had come a couple of games down the road, his is-he-being-targeted storyline wouldn’t have been as big of a deal. But Bruce Arians talked about it today, and that came after Fitz’s dad, Larry Fitzgerald Sr. — who was at the game Monday — dropped a tweet that caught national attention:
The world saw on Monday Night Football the politics and business of football.If its been decided that you are not getting the ball just win
— Larry Fitzgerald Sr. (@FitzBeatSr) September 9, 2014
The tweet got enough attention that Fitz Jr. decided to tweet a response Tuesday night:
My fathers inflammatory comments dont reflect my feelings or mood. We’re 1-0 & working tirelessly to be 2-0 this week thats my only concern. — Larry Fitzgerald (@LarryFitzgerald) September 10, 2014
Fitz had a big smile after the win. He has a good understanding where this team and this offense is right now. “In terms of numbers and stuff, goals I would set for myself back in the day, they were realistic where I was playing,” Fitzgerald told me last week. “Now you have to adjust that based on what you are asked to do.” He’ll be asked about this Thursday, the day he normally meets with the media, and he’ll echo what he said in his tweet. That’s Fitz. I’m sure he’d like more chances, but he’s looking for the victories too, and besides, he’s not the guy who is going to raise a fuss. He never has been.
