TEMPE [url=http://www.thecardinalsclub.com/chase-edmonds-jersey/]Youth Chase Edmonds Jersey[/url] , Ariz. (AP) Someday, obviously, Larry Fitzgerald will play in his last NFL game. Whether that game is Sunday, when his beleaguered Arizona Cardinals play at Seattle, is anybodys guess.And dont expect any hints fr om him. He doesnt like to talk about it.I havent even thought about it, Fitzgerald said after the Cardinals practiced on Thursday. Im just focused on trying to get this win in Seattle.The week before, hed said, rather impatiently, You know me. Ive been answering for the last three years. Nothings going to change, he said. If I decide to retire, Ill let you guys know. Man, seriously. So, I dont understand why we keep asking these questions.The answer would be because hes 35 years old, played 15 seasons in the NFL and has accumulated statistics that place him among the best to play the game.Certainly Fitzgerald seems physically capable of continuing beyond this season.I believe fr om an ability standpoint theres very few people that can do what Larry does, Cardinals offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich said.Thats just honest. When the ball comes in his direction, when its time to make the play, hes one of the best to ever do it.Leftwich said hes never seen a better pair of hands on a receiver, although he acknowledged that might tick off Randy Moss.Fitzgerald is remarkably durable. Hes caught a pass in 226 consecutive games. Sunday will mark his 234th NFL game, all with the Cardinals, tying the franchise record set by kicker Jim Bakken, who played fr om 1962-78.With 14 yards receiving [url=http://www.thecardinalsclub.com/mason-cole-jersey/]Stitched Mason Cole Jersey[/url] , hell top 2,000 yards receiving against the Seahawks. Fitzgeralds already topped that mark against the Rams and 49ers, so he would join Jerry Rice as the only receivers to accomplish that feat against three teams.Last week, in an otherwise ugly loss to the Los Angeles Rams, Fitzgerald threw his first career TD pass, a nifty 32-yarder to David Johnson.Now, though, he finds himself on a 3-12 team that ranks last in the NFL in offense with a rookie quarterback in Josh Rosen and all the inconsistencies that brings. Fitzgerald has 65 catches for 698 yards and five touchdowns. Decent stats for anyone else, but in the previous three years, Fitzgerald caught 109, 107 and 109 passes.So why keep playing? In terms of wins and losses, this will be the worst record of any of his 15 Cardinals teams, no matter what happens on Sunday in Seattle.Yet he said he still loves his job.I cant think of anything I dont like about it, he said. The grind is great, man. Its part of it. You cant do what you do on Sunday without the practices and lifting the weights and watching the film and doing all the studying and the preparation. You cant go out there and execute if you dont put the time in.But those losses keep piling up.Hard work doesnt guarantee results, Fitzgerald said. But it ensures that youre prepared to go out there and play, and thats my thing. I step on that field theres no guarantees of anything but I know Im prepared to play. I know my assignments, I know what I need to execute. Its your will against the other man youre competing against.Fitzgerald, if he returns, may be dealing with another coaching change. Hes voiced his support for Steve Wilks, who looks to be on shaky ground at the end of his first season as coach.As for Wilks [url=http://www.thecardinalsclub.com/mason-cole-jersey/]Youth Mason Cole Jersey[/url] , he said hes just blessed to coach a player such as Fitzgerald.I think about that daily just being around him, to be honest with you, Wilks said. Last week, I walked up to him, and heres a Thursday practice, and hes diving for a ball in the end zone. A guy with 15 years in the league. I try to reference that with the young guys, particularly Christian (Kirk) when he was still here practicing daily. Youve got a great example and a mentor to really pattern your life after not just football, but life.Larrys just one of the best. In this years inaugural episode of the Cardinals Flight Plan, the Cardinals owner and team president, Michael Bidwill, described 2nd year QB Josh Rosen as the teams "franchise quarterback."W..."In this years inaugural episode of the Cardinals Flight Plan, the Cardinals owner and team president, Michael Bidwill, described 2nd year QB Josh Rosen as the teams franchise quarterback.When I heard Bidwill, the first question that came to my mind was could Bidwill (and we fans) have called Matt Leinart (also a #10 1st round draft pick) the teams franchise QB after Leinarts first year?2006 Matt Leinart: 4-7, 56.8%, 2,547 yards, 11 TD, 12 int., 21 sacks [url=http://www.thecardinalsclub.com/christian-kirk-jersey/]Stitched Christian Kirk Jersey[/url] , 212.3 ypg, 56.8 QBR2018 Josh Rosen: 3-10, 55.2%, 2,278 yards, 11 TD, 14 int., 45 sacks, 162.7 ypg., 26.6 QBRNow-we all know what Josh Rosen was up against-2 OCs-vanilla offense-makeshift offensive lines-Christian Kirk injury. Bidwill and Steve Keim have turned to Kliff Kingsbury to get Josh Rosen going and on the right track. Kingsbury lauds Rosens throwing form and has vowed to cater the offense to Rosens and the teams strengths.So, what would that catering require?In watching Rosens college games and his 13 starts for the Cardinals, it would appear that Rosens greatest strength is passing up the seams and between the hash marks-and he isgood at throwing touch passes up the sidelines on fade and wheel routes.Where Rosen struggles is in feeling pressure in the pocket, possessing average (at best) mobility, lacking improvisational instincts/skills and driving the ball to the boundaries on deep outs, go routes and back shoulder passes. Therefore, it would seem that the kind of offense that Rosen could thrive in would be one very similar to the Patriots. The throws that Josh Rosen is best suited to make are the ones that Josh McDaniels draws up regularly for Tom Brady.But heres the rub-Brady is quick triggered and decisive. The ball comes out of his hand about as fast as any QBs in league history. But thats also because he has an outstanding slot WR in Julian Edelman and TE in Rob Gronkowski, plus a stable of athletic, sure handed RBs, who can catch the ball over the middle, in the flats or up the sidelines on wheel routes. The biggest question is-can Josh Rosen develop a quickness and decisiveness in his decision making to make the offense work?Rosen was not good this past season at throwing the ball quickly. A number of his interceptions were caused by forced throws, poor passing angles and tipped or deflected balls. Now-Kingsbury is very precise about creating passing angles and his receivers step counts and breaks that create good windows and exact timing. Rosen is in unchartered territory here-as his style of play has typically been a more deliberate passer who game is predicated off of play action.Would Kliff Kingsbury prefer to have a QB who is more athletic and strong armed?One has to wonder just wh ere Mike Glennon factors in to the QB situation this year. Glennon is in the last year of his 2 year deal and [url=http://www.thecardinalsclub.com/christian-kirk-jersey/]Youth Christian Kirk Jersey[/url] , therefore, how much sense would it make to have him learn the Air Raid offense for a year and then likely leave?What Glennon has going for him is his size and quick release. When he came in for Rosen in mop up duty, Glennon was decisive and quick triggered. Maybe Glennon would assimilate quickly into a Patriots style of offense. Plus, he has the strongest arm on the roster.Chad Kanoff would appear to be a natural fit in that he thrived in Princetons version of the spread offense-throwing for 3,474 yards at 73.2%, 29 TDs, 9 ints. and a 168.4 QBR his senior year-which earned him the 2017 Ivy League Player of the Year award.Kanoffs throwing strengths are similar to Rosens-he doesnt have a rifle, but he can command the middle of the field and win with touch passes toward or up the sidelines. As we saw in the pre-season games last year, Kanoff likes to get rid of the ball quickly and despite forcing some passes into tight windows, he was fairly successful in moving the chains.Varying Opinions:In a recent conversation I had with a local coaching icon, he said that what concerned him about Rosen was a lack of mobility and not having a rifle from the pocket. Rosen just doesnt flash enough arm strength for me, but maybe I need to see more of him, he stated. When I asked him about Kyler Murray he said, Murrays feet are exceptional and in todays NFL wh ere you cant hit the QB, as long as Murray scoots out of bounds and slides when necessary, hes going to be very difficult to handle.When I asked about size limitations, he said, when you watch his feet, he uses them to create clear passing lanes, so no, I dont see it as a problem. It wasnt too much of a problem for Mayfield and it certainly isnt a problem for Drew Brees and Russell Wilson. Murray threw behind 4 future NFL offensive linemen this past season [url=http://www.thecardinalsclub.com/josh-rosen-jersey/]Stitched Josh Rosen Jersey[/url] , with little problem.The fact that Kliff Kingsbury is completely enamored with Murray is, in my opinion, not something to dismiss. Kingsburys work with high caliber QBs-Manziel, Mayfield, Webb, Mahomes-suggests he knows what to look for.Theres a long-time, highly knowledgeable and well respected Cardinals and Ohio St. Buckeyes fan who recently wrote that-while he doesnt think the Cardinals will draft at QB with the #1 pick (or even perhaps if they should)-he would love it if the Cardinals are bold enough to take QB Dwayne Haskins-he thinks that Rosen is good, but feels that Haskins can be elite. He is so high on Haskins that he would prefer that the Cardinals take him at #1 over Nick Bosa.What impresses me about Haskins is his quick release. He can throw 10-20 yard darts with a flick of his wrist. He has a stronger arm than Rosen and perhaps a little more mobility (sorry Stephen A. Smith, but Haskins is not more of a runner than a thrower). I love the fact too that Haskins absolutely shredded two of the best defenses in college football last year in Michigan and Washington. That speaks volumes about his ability.However, I am completely of the mindset that ESPN columnist Will Cain articulates on this discussion. If you have a QB who fits your favored style of offense to a tee-you take him. Quarterbacks are the greatest assets and resource you have-but getting the best fit is the key to becoming a perennial winner in the NFL. Check out what Max Kellerman, Stephen A. Smith and Will Cain have to say about Dwayne Haskins and Kyler Murray. I am with Will Cain. i think that everything he says is right on the money. To me it is as simple as checking all of the boxes-With Kyler Murray, Kliff Kingsbury can open up the entire offense. With Josh Rosen, Kingsbury would need to cater it and lim it it. Rosen would likely be a better fit style-wise in Miami, Jacksonville, New York (Giants) or New England-and there should be a decent trade market for him this year or next.
