Larry Fitzgerald's father does not share his son's opinions

Larry Fitzgerald's father had some choice comments about his son's team on Sunday.

The Arizona Cardinals suffered an embarrassing, 58-0, loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, but wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald was his typical level-headed and professional self after the defeat. His father, Larry Fitzgerald, Sr., was much more critical of the Cardinals' effort.

ESPN's Mike Sando was in the CenturyLink Field press box with Fitzgerald, Sr., who is a long-time sports reporter. Sando noticed Fitzgerald was livid after the game, and it turned out that the Fitzgerald, Sr. was letting the world know his feelings on Arizona's effort:

As Sando mentions, Fitzgerald, Jr. does not share his father's beliefs, believing the team still "has a lot to play for."

Arizona will try to break their losing streak when it host the Detroit Lions, who are on a five-game losing streak themselves, this weekend. Both squads have 4-9 records, and the Cardinals are fortunate enough to be best against the pass, Detroit's primary focus on offense.
