The NFL Network did their “Top 100″ list on Wednesday and Arizona Cardinals wide receiver, Larry Fitzgerald, is not satisfied with his No. 7 overall ranking.
Fitzgerald only seems interested in one thing. That is getting closer to achieving his goal of being an NFL champion. Fitzgerald wrote:
“I’ve completed 8 NFL seasons, & while I am somewhat satisfied with personal achievements, I have come close only once to achieving the ultimate team goal. Being a productive WR is no longer enough. I’ve grown into a position of leadership as a Cardinals team captain and have tried to expand my role as a mentor and example for our core of young players.”
“My sincere hope is that we can get back to the playoffs on a regular basis and become Super Bowl Champions.”
The Cardinals are a combined 13-19 in the last two seasons with an assortment of different sub-par quarterbacks since Kurt Warner’s departure. Although, you wouldn’t know it judging by Fitzgerald’s numbers, the 28-year-old has piled up 2,548 yards and scored 14 touchdowns over the past two seasons.
With improvement to Arizona’s defense, it seems the Cards may be a legit QB away from competing for a playoff berth.
