Go ahead non-Arizona Cardinals fans, try to name a couple of the starting quarterbacks the team has had since Kurt Warner retired three and a half years ago. What you end up with is a group of mediocre passers, none which have a chance to start this year outside of Kevin Kolb with the Buffalo Bills. So you can’t blame receiver Larry Fitzgerald when he recently said on  NFL Network that he misses playing with Warner. I was fortunate to have Kurt for so many years,” Fitzgerald said. “He taught me so much not only as a football player but as a man. I truly value the relationship that he’s allowed me to have with him. I miss him dearly but he’s got his nice cushy chair at NFL [Network] studios now and he’s having a good time. But I learned a lot. I’ve taken all the lessons I’ve learned from him throughout the years, and try to implement it in my game still to this day. Fitzgerald does give credit to this year’s starter, Carson Palmer, for his leadership ability. He’s demanding, he holds everybody accountable; he has great leadership ability, he has a really even-keeled disposition but he really cares,” Fitzgerald said of Palmer. “He’s passionate about it, he wants to be good and that attitude is infectious among our group. It’s great to have that leader in our huddle and all of the guys are chomping at the bit to catch some passes from him this season. It’s unfortunate that 3 of Fitzgerald’s prime years were wasted with sub-par quarterbacks. He had a career low last year in all his statistics but you can’t blame one of the best receivers in the game when he’s catching passes from, well no one. Need NFL Tickets? Loading...
