Larry Fitzgerald’s Dad Tweets on Quiet Week 1 Performance

It appears Larry Fitzgerald Sr. would have liked to have seen his son Larry Fitzgerald catch more passes in last night’s Arizona Cardinals victory over the San Diego Chargers, 18-17.

Even though Fitzgerald only had one catch for 22 yards, it was nearly a touchdown, and caught one-handed. I was totally impressed.

While it was a bit disappointing to see Palmer target Fitzgerald only four times, we must take into account that Michael Floyd is emerging as a quite capable wide receiver. He also has Andre Ellington to hand the ball off too. Perhaps Mr. Fitzgerald should be reminded that his son is part of a team, not a one-man show.

I have a sneaky suspicion that Fitzgerald Sr. started Fitzgerald Jr. on his fantasy team. Don’t you?
