Fitzgerald avoids "future" talk
Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald just did an interview with Mike Jurecki and Dan Bickley on XTRA 910 out at the Super Bowl. Since it’s a local show — and both have long-standing relationships with Fitz — who better than to ask him about both his contract situation and his future with the Cardinals? Yeah, exactly.

Breaston philosophical about contract situation
This is Steve Breaston’s down time, so he’s doing what he does — writing (almost always not about football), getting lost in the new video game DC Universe, and Wednesday, visiting comic giant Todd McFarlane and possibly getting a chance to write a chapter for one of McFarlane’s books.

Every two years, the NFL Players Association has their rank-and-file do a survey on the best and worst fields in the NFL. For a second straight time, the field at University of Phoenix Stadium was ranked the best grass surface in the league (and, since grass is usually accepted as a better surface than turf, I think it’s fair to say that means UoP is the best surface in the NFL period.

Despite the Arizona Cardinals (losing) bid to prevent grass from being used to help sick people, they have managed to grow some pretty sick green. And don't think NFL players don't know the difference between great grass and ditch weed. They know grass. It's their life you might even say.
