Larry Fitzgerald’s father says “pathetic” Cardinals have quit

Larry Fitzgerald AP

The father of Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald has seen enough.

Larry Fitzgerald Sr., a sportswriter who occasionally opines about his son’s athletic endeavors, took to Twitter on Sunday and ripped the Cardinals as they went through a dismal 58-0 loss to the Seahawks.

“Pathetic performance by Arizona Cardinals,” Fitzgerald wrote. “Cardinals loss 9 straight can’t do anything right.”

Fitzgerald also referred to the blowout loss as, “Humbling embarrassing frustrating angering disappointing painful.What happens when u quit!”

The elder Fitzgerald also referenced Larry Jr.’s high school experience, when Larry Sr. transferred his son to a different school because Larry Jr.’s school wasn’t competitive on the field.

Larry doesn’t have the option of transferring now. He’s stuck in Arizona.

    Is he really stuck? Trade him, get a whole new team in return.

  2. hovenaut says: Dec 9, 2012 9:23 PM

    Well, he ain’t wrong….

  3. ballboy48 says: Dec 9, 2012 9:23 PM

    You know, sometimes I think parents get too involved, but in this case, I think he’s right! 58-0 in the NFL is nearly impossible to do!

  4. csilojohnson says: Dec 9, 2012 9:24 PM

    The Marino of recievers. One of the best to ever do it, never any talent to back him up. It’s a shame Larry cant throw it to himself. He should have left when he had the chance.

  5. djstat says: Dec 9, 2012 9:25 PM

    Cardinals have no QB

  6. ghjjf says: Dec 9, 2012 9:25 PM

    It’s Larry’s fault that he’s stuck with this losing team, he chose money over a real chance to win games.

  7. ningenito78 says: Dec 9, 2012 9:27 PM

    He can’t pull him out but Larry can force his way out. And that’s exactly what’s going to happen.

  8. eswanny11 says: Dec 9, 2012 9:27 PM

    As a Skins fan, I would love to have RGIII throwing to him. Maybe we can trade them a first round pick for him…..oh wait….

  9. stampnhawk says: Dec 9, 2012 9:28 PM

    With all due respect, he signed last off season knowing full well the QB situation. No one to blame but himself…and he’s not publicly doing it but his dad is and clearly still trying to control his career.

  10. rj2323 says: Dec 9, 2012 9:29 PM

    Yup this is a sad performance by the whole team they all quit

  11. patfic15 says: Dec 9, 2012 9:30 PM

    And so begins the end of the Fitz era in Zona.

  12. skoobyfl says: Dec 9, 2012 9:30 PM

    If the show fits…

  13. prosourcetalk says: Dec 9, 2012 9:30 PM

    Houston should try to get him

  14. 7ransponder says: Dec 9, 2012 9:31 PM

    Not that our QB situation is any better, but your home state is looking for a big time WR Fitz – come home, you’ll be welcomed with open arms!

  15. tundey says: Dec 9, 2012 9:32 PM

    I bet Dan Snyder is licking his chops…I just hope Shanahan can talk him out of it.

  16. rajbais says: Dec 9, 2012 9:35 PM

    This is not that much different than Marcus Vick speaking the way he did about Michael except Larry Sr. is a lot more respectable as a gentleman and did more for his family.

    It is not offensive for us speculating that the father is parroting what the son feels, But how can Larry Jr. be happy with the Cardinals’ season?

    Time to do the next best thing, fire Whisenhunt.

  17. fredsingleton says: Dec 9, 2012 9:35 PM

    Anyone else feel like they could be a better QB than any of the Cardinal’s QBs?

    I mean come on, you can’t score 1 pt? With one of the best WRs in the NFL. Beyond pathetic

  18. dkrauss93 says: Dec 9, 2012 9:35 PM

    Even Fitzgereld can make Sanchez look good. Wait never mind, no one can. I hope Fitz gets traded this offseason to a team thats a contender with a good QB which is not the Pats. He deserves a ring

  19. mendenhallfumblemachine says: Dec 9, 2012 9:38 PM

    This sounds sadly like the story of Barry Sanders. Two great players burdened with horrible teams and mediocre organizations (at the times). Hope it works out for Fitz, deserves better than this.

  20. mattolikesthevikes says: Dec 9, 2012 9:40 PM

    Come back home.

  21. packfaninvikeland says: Dec 9, 2012 9:42 PM

    Get Fitzgereld out of there! Save his career..they could get something in return for him and keep rebuilding! I hate seeing talent so good wasted on a team so bad

  22. berniemadoffsides says: Dec 9, 2012 9:43 PM

    $100M.

    What a nightmare… my heart goes out to him.

  23. fordmandalay says: Dec 9, 2012 9:43 PM

    Could someone tell me again what a genius Whisenhunt is?

  24. brownsclown says: Dec 9, 2012 9:44 PM

    Banner,

    Make the call!

  25. mnjoemama says: Dec 9, 2012 9:44 PM

    Come home !!! Skol

  26. jmc8888 says: Dec 9, 2012 9:44 PM

    So many people with ignorant comments in here.

    Larry had plenty of talent around him at times.

    The problem NOW comes down to QB and OL. He’s had other receivers and rb’s. There’s great talent on defense.

    But then again, when few people remember the cardinals were in the superbowl a few years back and now think we sucked that year they can make asinine comments now.

    There’s alot of talent on the Cardinals, the problem is no OT’s and no QB. That can turn a 12-4 team into a 4-12 team pronto.

  27. bigsexxy6574 says: Dec 9, 2012 9:45 PM

    I think that game against DeLaSalle was 77-0. They didn’t score that day

  28. billbrasky72 says: Dec 9, 2012 9:45 PM

    He can “transfer” back to MN. We’ll take him.

  29. tdrundmc says: Dec 9, 2012 9:46 PM

    Calvin Johnson is sick. Larry and Larry Sr. take some notes tonight.

  30. dioalice says: Dec 9, 2012 9:46 PM

    As a lifelong Cardinal fan (42 plus years), I love Fitz. But, his father (and his brother, Marcus) need to simply shut up and stop whining on Twitter every week.

  31. smithviking69 says: Dec 9, 2012 9:47 PM

    Vikes would love to have him.

  32. godblessfootball says: Dec 9, 2012 9:47 PM

    So much for the “Team” concept. It’s all about me-me-me. I am better than the team

  33. tdrundmc says: Dec 9, 2012 9:47 PM

    I mean come on, you can’t score 1 pt? With one of the best WRs in the NFL. Beyond pathetic

    11 1

    Tell Larry to get open then.

  34. goldenghost129 says: Dec 9, 2012 9:48 PM

    We need RGIII or Peyton Manning or Alex Smith or Johnny Football or Kevin Kolb or someone as our Q that doesn’t throw 4 picks

  35. andreweac says: Dec 9, 2012 9:48 PM

    Tebow is a better passer than the healthy Cardinals QBs. Unreal.

  36. tdrundmc says: Dec 9, 2012 9:49 PM

    Larry deserves to play for Arizona after making them waste money on corn on the Kolb.

  37. tdrundmc says: Dec 9, 2012 9:50 PM

    billbrasky72 says:
    Dec 9, 2012 9:45 PM

    Yeah go to another team that has an awful QB, good idea.

  38. ctp603 says: Dec 9, 2012 9:50 PM

    On a team with an above average defense and only 2 minutes and 37 seconds away (errr, 4 seasons removed) from being a Super Bowl champion.

    All they need is an offensive line and a decent decision maker behind center and they can bring this back to where they need it to be.

    Hopefully he’s a Cardinal for life.

  39. riverhorsey says: Dec 9, 2012 9:50 PM

    the Cards don’t have anything on the leaderless Chiefs.

  40. mcqphx says: Dec 9, 2012 9:51 PM

    Took the cash over a ring.

  41. trollhammer20 says: Dec 9, 2012 9:51 PM

    There’s nothing uglier than when a team quits. Right about the time Patrick Petersen fumbled the punt and it wound up in Malcolm Smith’s hands for a TD, the Cardinals quit trying, and the result was the second-worst shutout in the NFL since 1940.

    Heads will roll for this, and justifiably so.

  42. whatwouldlombardido says: Dec 9, 2012 9:56 PM

    Fitzpatrick deserves better than an incompetent organization. Trade him.

  43. skinsgal4life says: Dec 9, 2012 9:57 PM

    I think Larry is incredible. It’s hard to believe that a few months ago the Cards were 4-0.

  44. kingpel says: Dec 9, 2012 10:00 PM

    Whisenhunt is a clown.

  45. godblessfootball says: Dec 9, 2012 10:00 PM

    Why isn’t anyone talking about the horrible job Russ Grimm has done with the offensive line? The line gets worse every year since he got the job.

    Whisenhunt needs to fire Russ and hire Juan Castillo NOW!!!!

  46. blackcatnfl says: Dec 9, 2012 10:01 PM

    Fine a guy $200,000 for caring if the team wins or loses…suddenly he doesn’t care anymore.

  47. ytownjoe says: Dec 9, 2012 10:04 PM

    Trade him to the Browns, pleeeze.

  48. brenenostler says: Dec 9, 2012 10:05 PM

    Maybe they should just sign Vince Young. He would do much better than this Skelton/Lindley mess.

  49. themagicman1223 says: Dec 9, 2012 10:05 PM

    Ryan Lindley is a beast…..not. But seriously the cards should trade Fitz for alot of picks and rebuild their team.

  50. savannahrose44 says: Dec 9, 2012 10:07 PM

    I hate to say it Larry Sr, but your son’s performance against the Seahawks was just as pathetic. He got shut down by a guy coming off the bench and the PUP list.

  51. giantboy99 says: Dec 9, 2012 10:08 PM

    Trade him to the Jets for Tebow and Rex Ryan

  52. doublezero74 says: Dec 9, 2012 10:09 PM

    Seahawks ran up the score! How dare they!

    Pats fan

    The Jags, Cardinals, and Bills: the case for NFL contraction.

  54. godblessfootball says: Dec 9, 2012 10:12 PM

    All Arizona needs is one decent QB, 2 tackles, 2 guards, 1 center and they should be okay ;)

  55. cmdrsmooth says: Dec 9, 2012 10:15 PM

    Fitz for Revis straight up? We’ll even throw in Sanchez in the trade.

  56. richiesaurus310 says: Dec 9, 2012 10:18 PM

    Fitz isnt gonna get traded… He was dumb for re-signing with Zona to begin with.

  57. omen316 says: Dec 9, 2012 10:19 PM

    The point of football is to score points. If a team can’t stop another then they lose. And if that offends you then stop watching football.

  58. dg0122 says: Dec 9, 2012 10:23 PM

    Stop being a Little League dad. Your little Johnnie isn’t perfect either, Pops

  59. vicksprman says: Dec 9, 2012 10:25 PM

    Can somebody, anybody explain to me why Vince Young is sitting home while these clowns continue to set back QB play 100 years?

  60. true9erfan66 says: Dec 9, 2012 10:27 PM

    I agree with so many of you guys. Which is basically Larry did chose to resign, With Cardinals he does need to be commended. A bit because he was being loyal however I’m not a cardinals fan. But I would find it hard to believe if I was a cardinals fan that I would be upset if say Larry said hey let’s do a 3 year extension with an opt out after second year. That way he could show he wanted to be a cardinal but encase the team showed no progression to get better. Than his whole career wouldn’t be over. But instead he chose to have a full max 7 year deal with all the trimmings. So I say he chose to be externly loyal to cards and also chose to be big and rich. So I say he made his bed so he can lay in it now. Plus guys don’t be so quick to say Larry can force a trade cause well no he can’t. The new agreement makes it harder than ever. Fact is he has a contract, So Larry defiantly can demand it. But he doesn’t have any power to make it happen. Cause If he chooses to not play he gets fined which can become huge amount if he is out long enough, Plus not to mention what it can do to his image. But even If he does that still doesn’t mean cards have to trade him. Than think of like what might a team be willing to give up for a very high priced WR who Is amazing but if lets say Denver wants him well that means between him and Payton. What each make towards salary cap this year would be almost 41 mil on the 120 cap for 2 players the thing is it works for certain teams for instance niners pay a huge amount for there LB core. But that’s how there built. So I just don’t see how Larry gets out unless cards are willing to trade him. Than he is willing to restructure his contract.

    He had 11 balls thrown to him and caught one, so who was giving up?

  64. wtfru2 says: Dec 9, 2012 10:34 PM

    Trade him to the Vikings! Can you imagine him and Adrian Peterson on the same team?

  65. dstep24 says: Dec 9, 2012 10:45 PM

    It couldn’t be that the Seahawks straight thumped them or anything. They “beat themselves”‘ right? Haha. Hysterical. They simply got trounced by a far better team.

    it’s his own fault. such a waste though.

  68. pedagoguish says: Dec 9, 2012 10:53 PM

    Right. Arizona lost 58-0 because they quit. It had absolutely nothing to do with the fact that the Seahawks with a superior defense, a great running back, and an excellent young quarterback handed the Cardinals their collective butts.

    Keep it up, East Coast writers. Ignore the Seahawks. Ignore them all the way to the Super Bowl. And make sure you peg them as unlikely underdogs when they get there. And please, PLEASE, bet your entire life savings on them to lose. It will be so much fun to watch you all parading around in barrels.

  69. xxakshunxx says: Dec 9, 2012 11:02 PM

    So in the Fitzgerald household when the going gets tough, you quit on your team and transfer to another place.. Good life lessons for your son

  70. harrisonhits2 says: Dec 9, 2012 11:02 PM

    He chose to take a new long term contract in AZ, where after having already made many millions, it wasn’t enough to go somewhere else and maybe make marginally less. He had to be greedy and make every last penny.

    Welcome to what being a professional really means at most jobs. You may be great at what you do, but you have no control over what the management and bosses do, and its often going to make your life miserable.

    Be very very very thankful you’re getting paid what you are to tolerate the crap at your job instead of making something on the order of $2o-30 an hour or less like most Americans.

    Greed, meet Karma.

  71. The Prophet says: Dec 9, 2012 11:08 PM

    This loss to cap off a 9 game losing streak was for everyone that was convinced the 4-0 Cardinals were anything but a 4-week consecutive fluke. They were the worst 4-0 team in NFL history with wins strung together from the most outlandish of all circumstances and this 0-58 drubbing is a much more accurate illustration of the 2012 Cardinals.

  72. ajw21 says: Dec 9, 2012 11:17 PM

    He stays and people bash him. The same people who would of called him a sell out/quitter if he would of signed the same contract with a SB contender. FYI: How did this team start 4-0?

  73. dutchhmaster says: Dec 9, 2012 11:21 PM

    Aren’t sportswriters supposed to be objective and not show bias?

    Anyway, the Cardinals would be dumb not to trade Fitzgerald now. Even if Fitz doesn’t demand a trade, trade him while you can still get a first round pick plus others and start the rebuilding process. Trading Fitz clears cap space giving the team a lot more flexibility.

    That said, the Dolphins are one of the teams that can make this move. They have a ton of cap space and they have a handful of picks in the first three rounds so losing the first rounder won’t hurt too much. If the Dolphins were to get Fitzgerald, they would become playoff contenders. Getting an explosive receiver who can separate is their biggest need.

  74. omniscient48 says: Dec 9, 2012 11:30 PM

    Here is the best of both worlds for both teams:

    Trade Fitz to the Saints for Chase Daniel and Mark Ingram

  75. hawkfan50 says: Dec 9, 2012 11:30 PM

    Hawk fan at the game today .

    One of the best receivers in history caught one pass for 2 yards …

    Look , our secondary is good , but we ain’t THAT good ! That’s just horrible play calling and equally pathetic quarterback play by Az.

    Someone should be fired .

  76. jrod2go says: Dec 9, 2012 11:37 PM

    This is about the time Barry quit. Seemingly a lot of similarities in personality. Don’t do it man.

  77. thekingdave says: Dec 9, 2012 11:43 PM

    @pedagoguish

    Great to know Minneapolis is on the east coast.

    To everyone speculating trade, it’s not happening. Larry chose the cash, and the massive guaranteed money gives the Cardinals zero incentive to deal him anytime soon.

  78. Ponsonby_Britt says: Dec 9, 2012 11:45 PM

    Not to worry; Detroit’s coming to town.

  79. kenudo says: Dec 9, 2012 11:45 PM

    Can we please please not refer to Lynch as a great RB? The guy is in his 7th year and averages 4.1 per carry. This season, his best ever, is 4.6. A very good season but nothing “great”. Adrian Peterson is great. Lynch is good.

  80. throwdeepbaby says: Dec 9, 2012 11:45 PM

    Yep, I agree Fitz Jr, decided he wanted to chase the money rather then sign with a better team. Dad can not save him now.

  81. yssupasigninnamnotyep says: Dec 9, 2012 11:46 PM

    Pathetic Cardinals? Come play for the even more pathetic Raiders Larry…we’d love to have you!

  82. barroomhero80 says: Dec 9, 2012 11:55 PM

    Should go home. Lord knows the Vikes need receivers

  83. ketch20too says: Dec 10, 2012 12:04 AM

    Improvement is only a draft away. Look at the rookies lighting it up this year. QB’s are coming out of college much more NFL ready than ever before. There is hope, just not for this year.

  84. serenaundercover says: Dec 10, 2012 12:09 AM

    This game was bad enough to make Arizona fans look back fondly on the Derek Anderson era in Arizona. While they didn’t win much with Derek they got the occasional touchdown and a few first downs in a game.

    This was a super bowl contender under Kurt Warner. Given the huge difference before he retired and after. Start carving the statue. Kurt belongs in the Hall of Fame on the first opportunity to induct him.

  85. zengreaser says: Dec 10, 2012 12:14 AM

    I don’t feel sorry for Fitz. He used all the leverage he had to squeeze every penny he could out of that team. He could have easily played out his contract & walked away. He’s the one who lobbied for Kolb (great move there). This ain’t high school; he’s a grown man who opted for cash over the realistic possibility to be on an annual contender. I’d like to see Larry be a man & not try to force his way out of the desert, seeing as he did ask for this.

  86. mintberrycrunch1 says: Dec 10, 2012 12:42 AM

    He will get traded to the Patriots.

  87. patsfiend says: Dec 10, 2012 12:43 AM

    Come finish things with the Pats, Larry. They’ll take care of you in Foxboro.

  88. westcoastredbird says: Dec 10, 2012 12:59 AM

    The Cardinals have contacted Usain Bolt to run their Wildcat offense. Barry Switzer will help them install the wishbone and utilize Bolt on 90% of the plays. The other 10% is what Fitz’s dad wants. What a freakin train wreck!!!!!!!!

  89. azpackerbacker says: Dec 10, 2012 1:07 AM

    I love it when those in the national media refer to Larrys dad as a legitimate sportswriter. He writes for one of those local neighborhood shopper papers back in Minn. look it up, but not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    That said, for all the Viking fans who want Larry to come home, may I reference Herschel Walker. Feel free to google that one too .

  90. bamboozle99 says: Dec 10, 2012 1:09 AM

    When they were 4-0 I said they’ll be like last year’s Buffalo Bills and got nothing but thumbs down. Right now they’re wishing they could beat the Bills.

  91. orivar says: Dec 10, 2012 1:14 AM

    Can you blame the Cardinals? All they have is defense. They couldn’t figure out between Skelton and Kolb due to Skelton jumping out on top as Kolb would always get injured somewhere. So the QB you want is only really playing because the other guy gets a thumb injury here, a foot injury there, etc.

    What happens? That guy starts and struggles. The other guy? He comes in and and wins

    The problem? As said..the only thing the Cards have is defense.

    What does that mean? It means no O-Line and multiple ribs detached from your sternum is what it means. MULTIPLE RIBS DETACHED FROM YOUR STERNUM.

    The result? Season over cause that guy isn’t coming back any time soon and the others can’t play at all.

  92. thetooloftools says: Dec 10, 2012 2:16 AM

  94. npina111 says: Dec 10, 2012 2:58 AM

    if I were famous twitter would make me cringe. Parents and friends speaking on my behalf with brilliant analysis. From a sports writer. Wow! Arizona sucks. Really? Dont u think they know that.
    I would hate to walk in that locker room. Its like mom showing up with you in class. Twitter lets your mom show up in class without leaving the house.

  95. jtylert says: Dec 10, 2012 4:01 AM

    Man… can you imagine him on the Pats or Denver?

    Chilling.

    As a Seahawks fan, if I can’t have him on my team, I don’t want him in the division… and as a Larry Fitzgerald fan, I’d really love to see him with a great QB tossing it to him. Warner’s tenure was too short.

    Having Brady or Manning throwing to him would be something incredible. Whether you’re a fan of Broncs/Pats or not, if you’re a fan of football, it would be amazing to see.

  96. thatchrisguy says: Dec 10, 2012 4:24 AM

    @patsfiend: No way the Pats would pay that kind of money. It WOULD be interesting to see how anyone would defend against Welker, Gronk AND Fitz , (and Hernandez, and Edleman, and…sheesh!) though. Hell, Ridley would probably run for 300 yards per game in that situation!

  97. jboyxl73 says: Dec 10, 2012 4:55 AM

    Why would Fizt jump threw hoops to get out of a contract to go play for a losing team that’s years away from being a champion , if the Cardinals respect him at all they won’t trade him to a loser either …..

  98. pachey5150 says: Dec 10, 2012 5:07 AM

    LIONS FAN HERE ! i know my team has not been doing well at all but we would give arizona KVB,Titus Young,corey Williams,petagrew, and draft picks for Larry Can u picture Cj and Larry on the same team amd Stafford throwing it to them hey a guy can dream lol

  99. 8man says: Dec 10, 2012 5:35 AM

    Funny. No talk of the Seahawks running up the score. I guess the Patriots are the only team that can do that.

  100. mrobinson14 says: Dec 10, 2012 7:40 AM

    Karma? No this is classic Arizona. The cardinals are possibly the WORST team in the nfl. I figured with their OLine that even the mediocre QBs that they have aren’t able do do squat!!! These guys will be terrible until they get some olineman and a qb.

  101. tonyricemajorharris says: Dec 10, 2012 7:51 AM

    I agree with Dad

  102. hoffmkr says: Dec 10, 2012 11:12 AM

    What is a fair trade for Fitzgerald?
    Arizona just drafted Floyd this year so they have a second WR.

    Would a 1st and 2nd from St. Louis be enough?
    If so, you’ve got two teams that should have the deal done by 10 minutes after the season is over.

    At ~30 for a WR, he’s probably not going to bring 2 first round picks.

    The good thing about the league is his fortunes can turn around in a hurry. I mean even this team started on a 4-game winning streak. We’re only a few years removed from when he was a possesion and desperation pass away from being a Super Bowl that alot more than Barry Sanders, undoubtedly one of the top players on NFL history

    Imagine him and Adrian Peterson on the same offense.

    The way that game snowballed against them, who can really blame them? As for Fitz re-signing with Az, the start of the season, including a victory over the Seahawks gave every reason to think the Cards had indeed turned a corner. 49’ers swift turnaround under Harbaugh shows what can be made of high draft picks, underachieving talent, and excellent coaching. Hope Fitz doesn’t listen to Dad on this one, the core is there for success. Granted, in the NFC West with the 49’ers, Seahawks, and Rams already making progress, it will be tough for at least a few years.

    For anyone who says that the bad O-line play is Russ Grimm’s fault — look at what he’s had to work with. The Cards have not drafted an offensive lineman before the 4th round since 2007. This year they are starting two rookie tackles (4th round & 7th round picks). They’ve been trying to get by with late-round picks and waiver pickups (and stiffs like Alan Faneca).

    The QB situation is just as bad. In the last 10 years they have drafted only two QBs before the 4th round: Matt Leinart and Josh McCown.

    He must of been under the impression that Kurt Warner was comin out of retirement when he signed that new contract. Either that or under the influence….
