Larry Fitzgerald Made The First-Class List:

As run down by msnfoxsports, find the link here. Hands down,  number 11 Larry Fitzgerald makes amazing look mundane, which is why his first-class hands award is no shocker. Hit the jump to see what the Arizona Cardinals and their fans have in Mr. Fitz.

In a down year, he put up in excess of 1K YDS receiving. That's no shocker. He also notched six TDs. Again, a down year. Most folks would be happy with a 1K year, not Fitz. He does the extra, again, no shocker. What I want to do is look at are total stats and project.

His rookie year he put up 780 YDS and eight TDs in 15 games.

His sophmore season, forget the slump. He crossed the goal line 10 times and ate up 1409 YDS in 15 games.

His junior year there was that thing. It sucked. He still had 946 YDS and 6 TDs in the 13 games he did play. YDS/Games = 72.yaddayadda. 72X2 = 144. 946 + 144 =  1090 and 6.92 TDs, hey, it's the math, not me. (And this is just for those who do things like this, so you don't have to project the 3 games he missed.)

Now he's a vet, he knows the game...

2007 = 1409 YDS, deja vu? 10 TDs, 15 games.

2008 = 1431 YDS and 12 TDs, all 15 games.

2009 = 1092 YDS and 13 TDS, 15 games. The Kurt injury.

2010 = 1137 YDS and six TDS in 15 games. The horrible curse that is D.A., mostly.

The great is that Larry finds the end zone. Four of seven seasons were 10+ TDs. 57%. When healthy, (and yes sucky QB is an ailment) he puts up massive receiving YDS, posting 3 1400 YDS seasons in his career, and five of seven seasons posting 1K or better YDS. That's 71.4%.

So 2011, he's healthy. Of body, and of QB. I've already posted about Kevin Kolb getting the preseason vote for comeback player of the year. Read about Kolb here. My thoughts for #11 this season, 1237 YDS and 10 TDs. And I expect to see a good start to those numbers in the first game against the Carolina Panthers.

What are your thoughts? Let me in the poll below.
