There was a good story in the Wall Street Journal today talking to defensive backs who have battled Larry Fitzgerald over the years. Many like to trash talk. None trash talk Fitz, because, frankly, Fitz is too nice. “He’s asking how you’re doing, how your family is,” said former Panther and current Viking Captain Munnerlyn.
Fitzgerald wasn’t quoted in the story, but he was asked about it today.
“I’m just one of the guys, honestly,” Fitzgerald said. “Guys talk crazy to me, I usually don’t say anything, but if you are just talking regular … I’m not trying to lure anybody to sleep. He’s got a job to do, I’ve got a job to do. I’m just professional about my job. I’m not trying to hurt anybody or do anything malicious. At the end of the day, I’ve got a family to feed just like he does and we’re going to go out there and do our best, and the best man is going to win.
“I think there is a professionalism you can take to it. I just try to be respectful to the game, respectful of players who play it, because this game was great before I got here and it’s going to be great after I leave.”
