Roundup: Cards coach not worried about Fitz

Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald had 10 receptions for 105 yards and two touchdowns over the first two games of the season. Not bad numbers, but a little lower than some might have expected after his breakout 2008 playoff run. Fitzgerald has led the NFC in catches and receiving yards over the past two seasons.

So is there any reason to believe that Fitzgerald could become a problem if he does not see more targets? Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt says that there is no reason to believe that Fitzgerald will become the next diva receiver according to the Arizona Republic.

“I think the one thing I’m most impressed with Larry — we all know he’s a great player and the strides he made last year — but the leadership strides he’s made this year,” Whisenhunt said, noting that Fitzgerald’s teammates voted him a captain. “It’s the way he handles himself on the field, so no, I’m not concerned about that.”
