Larry Fitzgerald's Dad Rips Cardinals' WR Early Doucet

Sometimes you may even need to tell pops to ‘shhhhh'.

↵

Larry Fitzgerald Jr., the great wide receiver for the Arizona Cardinals, is the son of a sports broadcaster and commentator in Larry Fitzgerald, Sr. The possible conflict of interest was covered in depth during the Cardinals' Super Bowl run years back but was quickly squashed by Fitzgerald, Sr. He did his job.

But when the Elder Fitzgerald tweets about a teammate of his son's that plays the same position, this time Early Doucet, it puts his son in an uncomfortable spot, as ESPN's Mike Sando explains.

The Younger Fitzgerald is one of the best teammates and most respected players in the league. He goes about his business and doesn't bring any excess into his surroundings. But his father is a talkative man. And this time he spoke his way into the Younger Fitzgerald's surroundings.

↵

And was it even merited? Yes, Doucet has had some mistakes this season but he's caught 53 passes for 682 yards and five touchdowns in his best season as a pro. And yet, now he has to hear words from a teammate's pops? Doucet seems to be handling the situation like a man and kudos to him.

But to the Elder Fitzgerald ... ‘shhhhh'.
