While his father believes the Arizona Cardinals have quit on the season, wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has a different take.
“We’re professionals. That will never happen,” Fitzgerald said in his weekly interview with Dial Global Radio. “We’re going to continue to play. We’re going to continue to practice. We’re going to continue to prepare every week like we would if we had won nine games in a row. That’s not going to change. We’re not going to quit.”
Despite losing 58-0 on Sunday and having lost their last 9 games the Cardinals will finish the season with Ken Whisenhunt as their head coach. What happens then will be up to ownership.
The biggest problem with the Cardinals is their quarterback play. A week after Ryan Lindley displayed once of the worst performances at the position, John Skelton attempted to one up him. Tthe Cardinals best player, Fitzgerald has six catches in the teams last six games.
“I enjoy playing for the Arizona Cardinals and I want to continue to play here and try to win,” he said.
With only 652 receiving yards on the season Fitzgerald is in danger of failing to top the 1,000 yard marker for the first time 2006.
Fitzgerald signed an eight-year $120 million contract in 2011.
