Game Ball Of The Week: Larry Fitzgerald

For the final game ball of the week, I found it only necessary to award the invisible ball to wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald for obvious reasons. After the 38-7 shellacking at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers, Fitzgerald emerged from the ashes with 11 receptions, 125 receiving yards, and the game's only touchdown. It's something that Fitzgerald has done all season despite the glaring weakness at quarterback. Maybe he hasn't dominated each and every game, but through everything he finished the final contest with convincing numbers:


vs SFX / 1.2.11 Receiving
Rec Yards Avg TD
Larry Fitzgerald 11 125 11.4 1

It's a shame that John Skelton discovered his All- Pro wide out so late in the season -- it really is. However, later is better then never. 

Be that as it may, the future is growing increasingly cloudy in the desert. Fitzgerald will be a free agent after next season and if recent history repeats itself, you'd have to wonder if he'd hear out offers from other teams. Those in the mix will be gunning for the star receiver that will only be 28-years old when the 2012 offseason begins. 

Although Larry has reportedly expressed his desire to finish out his illustrious career with the Arizona Cardinals, continuous losing may have an impact on his future decision. For now he'll keep impressing us with performances like the one he displayed this past Sunday.
