TEMPE, Ariz. — Over Larry Fitzgerald’s 15-year career with the Arizona Cardinals, there accept been a few constants.
During his 14-year NFL career, Arizona Cardinals advanced receiver Larry Fitzgerald has bent at atomic one canyon from 18 quarterbacks. Actuality they are:
Josh McCown (2004-05)Shaun King (2004)John Navarre (2004-05)Brian St. Pierre (2004-2005)Kurt Warner (2005-09)Matt Leinart (2006-09)Tim Rattay (2007)Derek Anderson (2010)Max Anteroom (2010-11)John Skelton (2010-12)Rich Bartel (2010-11)Kevin Kolb (2011-12)Ryan Lindley (2012-14)Brian Hoyer (2012)Carson Palmer (2013-17)Drew Stanton (2013-17)Blaine Gabbert (2017)Sam Bradford (2018)
He has fabricated the Pro Bowl 11 times. He has bent 100 passes bristles times. He has had 1,000 yards nine times. But amid all the achievements that anatomy his Anteroom of Fame career, there hasn’t been a connected like change.
When Fitzgerald bent a 3-yard canyon from Sam Bradford in the additional division Sunday adjoin Washington, Bradford became the 18th quarterback from whom Fitzgerald has bent a canyon during his illustrious career. There accept been added from some, such as Kurt Warner and Carson Palmer, and almost some from others, such as Brian St. Pierre (just one). Each, in his own way, has contributed to Fitzgerald’s greatness. Yet Fitzgerald doesn’t see 18 as a accountability on his career or an impediment on his alley to a Cool Bowl. He feels advantageous to accept bent a canyon from all of them.
“It’s a privilege,” Fitzgerald said. “Most guys don’t get a adventitious to comedy continued abundant to be able to t the brawl from that abounding quarterbacks. So I attending at it as a blessing, a attestation to my longevity.”
Here’s a attending at how all 18 feel about throwing to Fitzgerald:
“For me it was fun because I got him first. It was my third year in the alliance … but aboriginal year starting, and for us to aces him as aerial as we did, he had all the expectations, but he aloof came in with such … it was like he’d been in the alliance before. So he came in with so abundant chic and address for such a adolescent guy that I bethink cerebration that was one of the best absorbing things aboriginal on. Afresh he proceeded to aloof alive up to it. He capital the ball. He’s been that way aback day one. He’s assured in his ability, but he’s all for the team. That’s what fabricated arena with him aboriginal on a lot of fun. A lot of guys appetite the brawl and can be insulted. Larry was never that. He was consistently actual accessible and actual apprehensive and absolutely helped myself as a adolescent quarterback.
“He had four seats at the [Phoenix] Suns. He knows how abundant I adulation basketball. So we took in a few Suns games, that was for sure, and I don’t anticipate it registered at the time for me, actuality adolescent and naïve and to not booty annihilation abroad from Larry, but attractive back, maybe that’s what that was about. It was absolutely air-conditioned of him. He was absolution me apperceive he capital the ball. Obviously, Larry can be ablaze and emotional, and he consistently accepted that he capital to access the game. That was apparently one of the attenuate — or not so attenuate — ways, demography me to basketball games. The accessible was, ‘Josh, accord me the ball. Aloof put it up. I’m open. I affiance you I’ll appear bottomward with it.’ Those types of things, I affiance you, I heard 1,000 times over the advance of the week.”
“I had him aback he was a rookie, so I anticipate the affair that affectionate of jumped out to you was aloof how developed he was, how complete he was, and he had a absolutely acceptable compassionate of how to comedy the position and how abhorrent football is declared to assignment in the casual game. You don’t consistently get that from rookies. A lot of times they’re talented, but they haven’t absolutely been accomplished in some of the nuances of actuality absolutely good, and he had all those things. He bent the brawl really, absolutely well. Extremely, acutely aristocratic brawl skills.
“It was absolutely attenuate because best rookies don’t affliction about the nuances. They aloof appetite to account touchdowns. I assumption it aloof goes aback to who he’s consistently been. He was an acutely complete guy in every footfall of the way. He came in and contributed as a rookie. The on-field success you see appear for adolescent players, but the off-field adeptness I acquainted afar him — aloof actuality able to handle the attention, the accolades, compassionate how important relationships were in the building, in that city, in that community. He had a absolutely acceptable of all that actuality alike at an aboriginal age.”
“A lot of bodies that accept played the d say that you usually see bigger plays in convenance than you do on Sundays. That is true. The one best amazing comedy I saw with him was he was active an over avenue beyond the field, so it was abroad from the quarterback adjoin the adverse amusement on a 20-to-30-yard canyon play. The brawl was befuddled abaft him, and instead of flipping his achievement and communicable the brawl with both hands, he accomplished abaft his arch with his up-field hand, abaft his helmet and bent the brawl with one duke abaft his helmet and captivated it, tucked it up-field and ran. He aloof ashore it abaft his arch like you were abrading your back, and the brawl aloof ashore to his hand. Never put the added duke on the ball. Those plays aloof affect you because, obviously, I was an NFL athlete, but I’m a big, slow, white guy that is afraid by the aptitude I was amidst by. Those never got old.
“When you threw the brawl abaft him or low, sometimes receivers will booty their accomplished anatomy with them aback they go to t that, and the play’s dead. Area he was able to adjust, still achieve the t and about-face up-field and achieve added absolute yards.
“I can bethink Kurt Warner cogent him, ‘This is what it takes to be great.’ I anticipate that helped him booty the aing footfall as able-bodied — acceptance film, not as abundant as on-the-field stuff. Larry had that down. He had the adherence to go out there and assignment physically to achieve his anatomy and his comedy better. The affair he got from mentoring from Kurt Warner was acceptance blur and allegory the d and seeing the d from a quarterback’s appearance to accord him an advantage.”
“He’s one of those guys that makes your job easy. The affair that was so appropriate about Larry was his adeptness to get his easily on altered footballs. Aboriginal on, aback I aboriginal came here, Josh McCown was the quarterback, and Josh would bandy some assurance to him, and I’d be like, ‘Why are you throwing those balls? He’s covered.’ He’d say, ‘No, no, no. You aloof got to learn: Covered for Larry is altered and the way you accept to bandy it because he does an astonishing job of affective his anatomy and captivation off defenders.’ So eventually aback I started to apprentice this, I acquainted like we were a bout fabricated in heaven because my greatest backbone was my accuracy, and his greatest backbone was his adeptness to move and acclimatize to the football and t it at altered angles. There were actual few times area I could say he’s covered because I could put the brawl here, and I apperceive he can get it, and he’s the abandoned one that can get it. That’s what fabricated it so abundant fun.
“Every day he would achieve what we anticipation was a accepted catch, but for anybody abroad it would’ve been miraculous. We would see it every day in practice, and it would be like, ‘Oh yeah, that’s why I threw it there.’ But that’s what became so incredible. I anticipate anybody that does article absurd that becomes normal, it aloof speaks to how abundant they are, and that’s who Larry was. I anticipate we got aloof to how abundant he was, so I anticipate there were times that our apprehension confused aloft area it should’ve been artlessly because we saw it a lot.”
“His attendance abandoned can change what a aegis is activity to do. He’s aloof a game-breaker. He can go up and get the ball. He’s fabricated a ton of big plays in his career so far, and I haven’t absolutely had a adventitious to comedy with him,” Leinart said in 2006, according to The Associated Press.
“Larry is apparently the best in the air on those jump assurance in the National Football League,” Leinart said in 2006, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
“You’ve got a guy like Larry who can go up and get the ball, apparently adjoin anyone, because he’s so big, and he’s got abundant brawl instincts,” Leinart said in 2007, according to The Associated Press.
“If he’s not the best, he’s one of the best teammates, guys, abnormally actuality as high-profile and as acceptable as he is. It’s actual attenuate to amalgamate that with assignment acceptance … aloof in the locker room, all of that affectionate of stuff.
“I didn’t apperceive abundant about him. Actuality with the 49ers, we played him alert a year, and I watched how acceptable he was. I heard some absolute acceptable things about him, but until you get in that locker allowance and you’re about him every day, you’re aloof not sure. Aloof for as acceptable a amateur as he was and a Anteroom of Fame-type player, the way he was coachable, the way he accomplished was impressive, and the way he mentored and talked with adolescent receivers, the way he announced with the quarterbacks, ‘Hey, what are you seeing on this? This is what I’m seeing.’ All that affectionate of stuff. I got there in Anniversary 4 and active on Wednesday and played on Sunday. Aloof the way he helped me out.
“I played one year with Jerry Rice. He reminded me of that. Aback the breach would go their 12 plays [in practice], and afresh the aegis would go, the majority of the abhorrent starters would aloof adhere out. It was their time to adhere out. Jerry, any time the aegis was up, would accept me bandy routes to him, and that’s what Larry was. He was consistently working. He was consistently accomplishing article anniversary day in practice. He consistently had article he capital to assignment on, and he’d assignment on it. It could be little things. He consistently took those two hours in convenance to get better. That’s what was absorbing to see. That’s why it was fun to be about him.”
“I anticipate what you apprentice appealing aboriginal on, at atomic in my experience, you affectionate of acquainted like you were in the attendance of somebody who was appealing abuse acceptable at what he does, one of those special, once-in-a-generation types of players. He’s abnormally skilled. To be as big as he was and his adeptness to t a football is unparalleled to annihilation I’ve anytime seen. I don’t anticipate in the two years I was with him, I don’t bethink him anytime bottomward a brawl in practice, in warm-ups, in a game, anytime. I don’t anytime bethink seeing it. He was a altered guy.
“He never capital to appear out in practice. He capital every rep. I was like that, too, but I was a guy aggravating to action for my activity every year in the alliance to blemish out a career, and actuality he is activity to be a first-ballot Anteroom of Famer, he didn’t appetite to appear out in practice. He capital every rep. He aloof beheld it as that rep he’s not demography is one beneath rep for him to get better. I anticipate there’s a aggressive allotment of you, too — you don’t appetite to be taken out because you don’t apperceive aback the time will appear that somebody replaces you. He was apprenticed by, ‘I appetite to be the best, and I don’t appetite anyone anytime demography my job.’ And I anticipate it’s aloof the aggressive nature, and it’s aloof his assignment acceptance and what he believed he bare to be able to play, which is as abounding reps as accessible and to be on the aforementioned folio as every quarterback he played with.”
“He sticks to a routine. He knows what his body’s activity to do, and he aloof takes affliction of himself. Over the advance of time, that makes him one of the best ever. His assembly speaks for itself. He doesn’t bead the ball. He’s a reliable guy. He’s abstruse to morph into a altered guy. He’s not the aforementioned guy, and he knows he’s not the aforementioned guy. He does all the stuff: He blocks those guys now. Five, six years ago he wasn’t accomplishing that. It’s aloof affectionate of the change of his career. He’s demography on altered roles, and I anticipate a lot of guys account that. Some guys aloof shut it down, ‘Eh, I’m not accomplishing that.’ It aloof speaks volumes for the blazon of actuality he is.
“He aloof understands that’s his niche. He’s not activity to run by a lot of guys. It is what it is. That’s affectionate of the way guys play. It’s the way guys sustain continued careers. It’s not consistently about stats, alike admitting his stats accept been great. It’s about blockage about and actuality productive, and that’s the way he builds his assembly in that system.”
“Everybody admired him. You acquisition me one guy that says he doesn’t like Larry Fitzgerald … I aloof don’t anticipate you’d acquisition him. He took me beneath his addition appropriate away, and he seemed to do that with a lot of the rookies. He’d affectionate of go put his arm about you and advice you out. If you charge anything, he’d allure you over to the house, and he was aloof a acceptable guy. I bethink one time, afore a preseason game, he affective me afterwards the aggregation meeting, and said, ‘Hey, c’mon. We’re going.’ He threw me the keys to his car and said, ‘Jump in. You’re driving.’ And I’m like, ‘Where are we going?’ and he’s like, ‘Just drive.’ We go, and we cull up to his house, and he’s like, ‘Let’s go.’ And I accept no abstraction of what’s activity on. I’m like, ‘What are we doing?’ We basically aloof afraid out at his abode for an hour and a half, watched some of the added amateur that were on, and we attempt hoops, played horse in the backyard, afraid out and afresh went aback to the hotel. He was aloof extensive out and actuality a friend.
“I stepped into it as a amateur who was an undrafted chargeless agent, who was No. 4 on the abyss chart. I didn’t alike apperceive if I was activity to achieve the team. Aback the division started, they had appear Matt Leinert and said, ‘Max, you’re our No. 2.’ Four amateur later, I go in adjoin San Diego. By the fifth game, I start. And you apperceive how abounding reps the fourth guy gets, so I got affectionate of befuddled in appropriate abroad with a not actual acceptable abhorrent line. Aboriginal Doucet was hurt. Steve Breaston was hurt. My bound end at the time was hurt. So I had Larry and three amateur receivers on the acreage with me and a amateur active aback — and a amateur quarterback. They were calling plays for me in the d that I hadn’t alike repped before. I had apparent them on paper. There were sometimes I was like, ‘[Forget] this, I’m activity to bandy it to Larry.’ He’d be double-teamed, and he would achieve a abundant move on the aboriginal guy. I’d bandy the brawl on time to him, and we’d achieve the comedy and move the chains. No amount what defenses did, it would aloof assume that he would acquisition a way to achieve it happen.”
“One of the aboriginal things bodies started adage aback I got drafted and affectionate of afore the armament acclimatized and anybody let it bore in was, ‘You get to bandy passes to one of the best receivers of all time, and how abundant is that?’
“I overthrew him in convenance one time and absolutely didn’t anticipate annihilation of it. I put it on myself. I overthrew him. We’re watching blur afterwards that day afterwards practice, and Mike Miller, who’s our abhorrent coordinator, who absolutely has a dry faculty of amusement and deadpans a lot, says, ‘Hey, Skelton, appear here.’ He calls me over. He goes, ‘We got one rule: You never aish Larry, and that’s for two reasons. One, he’s a abundant athlete. He’s a abundant competitor. He’ll go up and t that brawl for you. Aloof put it in his vicinity. And No. 2, he’s absolutely acute about his speed, so aback you aish him, he thinks it’s his accountability for not actuality fast enough.’ And he was asleep austere with that quote. I never forgot that. I don’t anticipate I anytime overthrew him again.
“He makes your activity easier as a quarterback. You aloof bandy it in his vicinity. He may not consistently appear bottomward with it, but he won’t let the added guy aces it. He’ll action until that brawl hits the arena or he catches it. There were times my arch was spinning aback I was a adolescent quarterback and a rookie, and we’d go, ‘Hey, let’s aloof bandy an accessible one to Larry.’ I’m 1-for-12 casual in the game, and afresh my additional achievement is a 5-yard out to Larry. He turns up the sideline, and we concluded up accepting a aboriginal bottomward and alpha accepting the drive going. There’s a lot of times area the antidote to a bad breach was aloof get Larry the brawl and see what happens.”
“He doesn’t accept bad days. I bethink this vividly. If, and it was few and far between, but if he anytime alone a brawl in convenance or in a game, Larry didn’t watch it on tape. He’ll put his arch bottomward for that rep, and he won’t watch himself fail. He won’t do it. And I would say for anybody else, it’s important to apprentice from your mistakes, but for Larry, it’s the accomplished mentality. Obviously, he knows what he did wrong. He’s a professional. It doesn’t appear often, and he aloof doesn’t acquiesce that to access his mind, so he banned to attending at it.
“[Larry procrastinated] anytime he capital to go somewhere, it didn’t amount what it was for. If we were activity to leave, I didn’t apperceive it. What we were activity to do, I didn’t apperceive that either. Like everything. We met the presidents of the United States, Bill Clinton and George Bush. He took me with him to accommodated them. He texted me that at 11 p.m. and asked if I would go with him the aing day and was ambiguous about it. He aloof said, ‘Hey, banquet tomorrow night with the presidents. You in?’ I angry to my wife at 11 p.m., and I’m like, ‘What could banquet with presidents mean? I don’t alike apperceive what that means. That’s so out of context.’ She’s like, ‘Eh, aloof go.’ We affectionate of consistently had that rule: If Larry accomplished out and he capital to roll, I affectionate of got a chargeless canyon all the time because you can’t about-face Larry bottomward because you never apperceive what you’re in for. It’s like, ‘what’s abaft aperture No. 3?’ all the time with Larry. She affectionate of gave me that anteroom pass, which was awesome. So, of course, I roll, and the aing day I get all the way to the Phoenician [resort] in Scottsdale [Arizona], and I accept no abstraction aback I appearance up what we’re accomplishing until we airing aback through the Secret Service, and I accommodated George Bush and Bill Clinton. And it’s like, ‘What in the world?’ And had he told me, I wouldn’t accept exhausted freakin’ dejected jeans. Larry’s absoluteness is way altered than ours, and he aloof doesn’t accept that, but that doesn’t arrest him from including you either.”
“Everybody knows Larry’s capabilities and playmaking ability. It’s my job and our job to acquisition agency to get him the ball, and you can see what happens whenever we do,” Kolb said in 2012, according to The Associated Press.
“He’s a guy that’s formed at his craft. And the best absorbing affair for me is, I anticipate aback I got there in 2012, he was affectionate of hitting a alteration in his career, and he’s affectionate of angry himself into a aperture receiver. [Bruce Arians] affectionate of put him in a altered cast than he was at the alpha of his career. He’s been cool aqueous with that. He’s been able to transition. And he’d alike acquaint you he’s apparently absent a footfall or two, but he’s still an amazing receiver. I’ve yet to see anyone with bigger easily than Larry has. He doesn’t bead balls, and he’s as reliable as it gets.
“For me, at the end of the day, aback I attending aback on football and on life, he’s a Anteroom of Famer for me because of the affectionate of guy he is. Still, to this day — we haven’t played calm for three or four years — but he’s the affectionate of guy that will still analysis in on you every already in a while. To say that for as big-time of a guy as he is, it agency a lot. Both my wife and I authority Larry in actual aerial esteem, and I’m consistently activity to be auspicious for him.”
“I had actually been in Arizona for seven canicule or eight days, and I came in afterwards halftime of a game, and I didn’t absolutely apperceive the plays. I aloof kept cerebration in my head, ‘Just bandy it to Larry, acceptable things apparently happen.’ I anticipate it concluded up actuality his aboriginal 100-yard d in nine amateur or article like that. He was acutely a abundant receiver but a abundant ambition to bandy to. A advanced t radius. You could aloof bandy it in his direction, and he would apparently appear bottomward with it.
“His backbone consistently stood out to me. He was such a able receiver. Defensive backs would aloof animation off of him.
“I bethink he fabricated a t in convenance my aboriginal anniversary there. It was one of those signature over-the-shoulder-toe-tap-unbelievable catches, and you’re like, ‘OK, it’s like he’s accomplishing it every day in practice’ and is architecture those skills. I beggarly actually one of the best amazing catches that you’ve anytime apparent that he fabricated in convenance like my additional day there.
“He was one of the aboriginal guys to appear acquaint himself, say hello. One of the best 18-carat nice guys, which is consistently abundant aback a guy is a abundant amateur but is additionally a bigger person. And for as abundant of a amateur as he is, he’s a bigger person, in my opinion.”
“He bent a bank avenue in an OTA with one hand. He back-handed it, and I still don’t apperceive how he did it. [It was a] 40-yard throw, so there was a lot of acceleration on the ball, and he was aloof like Spiderman, aloof ashore his duke out, and the brawl aloof stuck. It was amazing. I’ve never apparent that before.
“For a big guy, he can t it as able-bodied low as he does high, which is unique. You can bandy assurance abroad from defenders a his knees, and he’ll go bottomward and get it. Everybody has apparent him t the brawl aloft his arch for so long, but a lot of big guys don’t t the brawl low abaft him actual well, and Larry catches everything. It’s funny because it’s not as absorbing because it’s so expected. If it was addition guy, guys would be like, ‘Holy smokes.’ He does things, and it’s like, [Palmer shrugs]. He’s the absolute package. He blocks. He runs acceptable routes. He catches the ball. He’s not a diva. He doesn’t affliction about annihilation but winning. You aloof never accept to anguish about him like you accept to anguish about some guys. You aloof apprehend it from him, though. You don’t curiosity at it. You aloof say, ‘Oh, that’s Larry.’ You aloof apprehend it. That’s apparently one of the best adulation you can accord him. You aloof apprehend that he’s nice and not a superstar to a accidental fan or abundant to the advancement receivers or abundant to the starting abhorrent line.
“You accept a abundant accord of account and you apprehend him to do the abnormal, I guess.”
“One affair about him that makes him so appropriate is aloof the way that he exudes aplomb aback he achieve out on the football field. He looks at the guy beyond from him, and he has, afterwards a adumbration of a doubt, the acceptance that he’s activity to exhausted him on every distinct play. That’s one affair that I’ve abstruse from him that is so appropriate about him is that he absolutely believes that, with every cilia of his body, that he’s activity to go out there and boss — not abandoned win but dominate. And that carries over to the team.
“Sometimes I’ll go up to him and say, ‘We charge one of those ‘roar’-type moments aback he makes that t [Stanton mimics Fitzgerald’s acclaimed tearing-of-the-shirt while he yells afterwards a big play]. That’s infectious. That is one of his administration qualities that carries over and gets the army involved. Sometimes I antic that he’s got as abundant adeptness as anybody in the burghal of Phoenix, but with what he can do and what he can accompany to the table for us and aback he’s done it for a such a continued aeon of time, it’s infectious, and accepting those things alfresco of what he does appropriate as a football amateur that he’s been accomplishing will achieve him a Anteroom of Famer.”
“He’s great. But aloof to see him still be able to exhausted man advantage on a constant basis, he’s one of those guys, aback the ball’s in the air, he’s activity to appear bottomward with it. So aloof that abundance level, actuality able to bandy him one-on-one matchups. [He’s] absolutely aloof a nice, accurate guy to accept in the average of the field.
“Nothing absolutely surprises me about what he has been able to achieve in his career, aloof seeing the way that he prepares day-in and day-out. His circadian preparation, both physically accepting his anatomy accessible to roll, but mentally in the blur room, in the meetings, aloof allurement questions. So he’s a abundant role archetypal for a lot of guys on this football team.”
“Obviously, Larry is one of the best to anytime do it. To be able to be on the aforementioned team, the aforementioned acreage with him, is an honor. Aloof compassionate his ability, his range, his avenue tree, what he likes, how he sets guys up, it’s been a lot of fun aloof accepting to apperceive him and to assignment with him.
“I anticipate I had a appealing acceptable abstraction of how acceptable he was afore I got here. I anticipate every day of the anniversary actuality on the field, it’s affectionate of proving appropriate that he was that good.”
