Larry Fitzgerald is staying out of the Cardinals quarterback decision

Larry Fitzgerald wanted the Cardinals to draft Michael Floyd and he’s happy that they wound up doing his bidding.

In an interview with KTAR in Arizona, via SportsRadioInterviews.com, Fitzgerald raved about the way the rookie receiver looked during offseason work. Fitzgerald called Floyd a “strong and physical” receiver who he thinks will be part of a receiving corps that will be “a force to be reckoned with when we open up.”

For that to happen, the Cardinals will need to settle on a quarterback. Kevin Kolb and John Skelton will resume their battle during training camp and Fitzgerald is planning on staying out of it.

“I really just try to stay out of it as much as I possibly can,” Fitzgerald said. “Just try to make my plays and do what I am coached to do and be responsible for that. The cream rises to the top. I know by Week 1 when we go out there we’ll have our guy. We’ll be supportive of that person.”

If the Cardinals find the right guy under center, that receiving corps will have a chance to make Fitzgerald’s words come true. If not, their season will likely look a lot like a reenactment of the 2011 campaign.

    Here’s why guys like Fitz and Andre Johnson are the best: It matters not who their QB is, they still beast out there. I suspect Calvin Johnson is this way also, time will tell..he’s young yet.

    But you personally wanted Kolb. Judging by your evaluation of talent, Michael Floyd will also be a bust. Start Skelton!

    Well no crap, the last time he backed a qb, he signed with denver, forcing the best wr in the game not named johnson to back, hat in hand, to apologize to a third tier qb at best

    That is such a cliche answer. What we all should be saying is what a complete and utter tragedy it is for someone of this guys talent to have to catch passes from one of these clowns. Especially in his prime. That front office should be ashamed of itself. Lienart/kolb/skeleton? Maybe he should be involved….they obviously can’t figure it out

    In the 4th quarter of his games last season, Skelton’s QB rating averaged over 100. Keep in mind that Skelton has never had the benefit of any off-season work (OTAs or mini-camps) and that his first training camp was spent with the 3s and free agents while all of the snaps when to Leinart and D. Anderson. In the last training camp, ALL of the snaps and coaching attention went to Kolb while Skelton worked with the 3s and free agents again.
