Larry Fitzgerald says team will 'keep fighting'

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

The Cardinals are on a long losing streak, but Larry Fitzgerald isn't ready to quit.

The Arizona Cardinals lost their sixth-straight game on Sunday when they let a fourth-quarter lead slip away against the Atlanta Falcons. The losing streak came after a 4-0 start to the season, making Arizona's 4-6 record all the more disappointing.

Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald went on Dial Global Network with Jim Gray on Tuesday, and was asked about how the Cardinals go forward from here, according to Sports Radio Interviews:

"We keep fighting. You never tuck your tail and run. We are dealing with some adversity, but the true test of a man is when you deal with adversity in our game and in our profession cause nobody cares what your record is or what you have done the week before. We play against the St.Louis Rams at home, the team that beat us for the first time this year, so we have a lot to play for. We have a lot to play for."

Fitzgerald has struggled to match his typical production with a lack of quality play at the quarterback position. The wideout has just 52 catches on 101 targets this year, for 596 yards and four touchdowns. It is highly unlikely that Fitzgerald will come close to his stellar 2011 season, when he was much more efficient with his 153 targets, catching 80 passes for 1,411 yards.

The Cardinals will try to snap their losing streak when they face the St. Louis Rams on Sunday afternoon at home.
