Arians had surgery due to Christmas Eve hug from Fitzgerald

Near the end of an otherwise lost season for Arizona, the Cardinals pulled off a memorable road win in Seattle on Christmas Eve. The victory triggered an overly enthusiastic reaction from receiver Larry Fitzgerald.

As explained by Kent Somers of, Fitzgerald hugged coach Bruce Arians hard enough to tear a rotator cuff in his shoulder.

“It’s all Fitz’s fault, he caused the whole thing,” Arians said, via Somers. “It’s going to cost him.”

The question came up of Fitzgerald getting Arians a get-well card.

“It’s going to be a get-well convertible,” Arians said. “I’m still deciding what kind.”

Arians remains in a sling. Which probably means that the convertible should be an automatic, not a standard.

    Who the hell calls a manual a standard?

    Fitz is notorious for sneak attack tackling old Cardinals RB and now radio host and announcer Ron Wolfley and it’s hilarious, but that guy’s gonna get hurt too soon.

    Standard transmission or stick. No one calls them anything in the US because no one knows how to drive one.

    Arians need to retire from coaching. His health just isn’t good in general.

    Because football is not that important.

    Arians, your body is failing you big time.

    “Who the hell calls a manual a standard?”

    I’ve never understood it either. It is like calling typewriters or records standard. They stopped being the majority of US car sales in the mid 1950s, therefore was no longer standard.

    He’s lucky he didn’t hug his girlfriend or wife or he’d be on the hook for abuse!!

    Well considering the correct term is standard maybe you all don’t have as much knowledge on the topic of transmissions. Lol.

    If they could substitute that convertible for the bus Arians throws his guys under that would just be great.

    Thats overly general. Thats all I drive…that being said, having a Standard is like its own security system. I dont even lock the doors anymore.
