Cardinals see Fitzgerald's greatness daily
"We're spoiled Monday through Saturday because we see it all day," center Lyle Sendlein said of Fitzgerald's catches. "We come out here on Sundays and it's just another day. And we watch it on film and it's, 'Oh, there's Larry being Larry again. Move on to the next play.'"
Cornerback Patrick Peterson, who can make a huge play or two himself, marvels at Fitzgerald often. "I've seen him make a catch with two fingers," Peterson said.
--Coach Ken Whisenhunt rarely passes up a chance to be a smart aleck. He certainly didn't when asked what his quarterback situation would be heading into 2012.
"Well, we've got three right now. We'll probably sign a few more."
--Whisenhunt maintained throughout the year that the Cardinals suffered from having no offseason work. So how does he explain teams with new coaches, such as San Francisco, doing so well?
"San Francisco had a number of veteran players that had played together. I'm not comparing teams. They've done a great job. For us, I can focus on what I think happened or what happened with us from the impact of the lockout: We had 51 new guys, which was over half of our team, we had a tremendous amount of young guys who were playing a new scheme defensively. We had a new quarterback who had never been in our scheme. So we had a lot of things that we had to learn."
Whisenhunt has mentioned the 51 new players statistic quite often. Most of those, however, were signed to fill out an expanded training camp roster of 90 players.
