Larry Fitzgerald criticizes himself

Posted on: July 31, 2010 12:06 am
Cardinals superstar receiver Larry Fitzgerald made an interesting – and honest – comment Friday on KTAR in Phoenix with Doug and Wolf:

“I don’t think I had a particularly good offseason in minicamps. I don’t think I was as crisp as I needed to be. There’s a lot of fine-tuning I was trying to work on this summer. Coach Whisenhunt talked to me before I left and just told me how much he needed me to raise my level of play.”

Normally, this kind of talk from an athlete is as noteworthy as a Martellus Bennett fully-clothed Tweet. But Fitzgerald has a track record of vigorously correcting his weaknesses. Whether it was working on is route running early in his career or answering the coaching staff’s public demands to get faster running after the catch in 2008, Fitzgerald has always had a unique ability to turn his short-comings into strengths.

Obviously, the Cardinals are banking on Fitzgerald more than ever in 2010. Anquan Boldin is gone and Matt Leinart is no Kurt Warner.
