Larry Fitzgerald's father sounds off on Cardinals record loss

Kevin Casey

The wide receiver's dad said on Twitter they took Fitzgerald out of a similar situation in high school.

After starting the season with four consecutive wins, things seemed to be looking up for the Arizona Cardinals. Since then though, they've rattled off nine straight losses but none more astonishingly bad than yesterday's 58-0 drubbing against the Seattle Seahawks.

The Cardinals turned the ball over eight times in the game including starting quarterback John Skelton's four interceptions and a fumble. Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald was targeted 11 times in the game but caught just one pass for a paltry two yards. The star receiver is under contract with the Cardinals through 2018 and although he's never publicly address any displeasure he may have with the team, his father didn't shy away from it.

Getting Fitzgerald out of Arizona would likely mean a trade because of the long contract extension his signed before last season. This year, Fitzgerald has caught just 57 passes for 652 yards and four touchdowns. The lowest season touchdown total of Fitzgerald's career came in 2006 and 2010 when he caught six passes for scores.
