Watching the Cardinals’ 58-0 loss to the Seahawks on Sunday led Larry Fitzgerald’s father to take to Twitter to say that the team’s performance was “pathetic” and that they quit on the game.
The elder Fitzgerald wasn’t the only person looking to Twitter while the Cardinals were being humiliated by the Seahawks. Vince Young took note of the league’s worst quarterback situation and decided to send a message to the younger Fitzgerald offering his services as an alternate to John Skelton, Ryan Lindley, Kevin Kolb and whoever else the Cardinals might have in mind at quarterback as they try to end a nine-game losing streak.
@LarryFitzgerald you know I can help tell coach.—

It seems ridiculous, but these are desperate times in Arizona. Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic asked coach Ken Whisenhunt who would be the team’s quarterback in Week 15 and Whisenhunt responded by asking Somers if he could play the position. It must have been hard for Somers not to follow up with wonderment that such experience was in any way a qualification given the way the Cardinals quarterbacks have been playing.
Young’s chances of landing in Arizona are probably about the same as Somers’, but we look forward to hearing some other alternative choices to the guys that the Cardinals have been running out there for loss after loss.
