    Is he the best receiver in the NFL? After watching him tonight, especially without Boldin along his side, he gets my vote.

    Yes - not even close.

    Larry Fitzgerald's been a freak of nature for about eight years. Most of the world's just catching up with it.

    This is true. I think I saw him play more when he was at Pitt than since he's been in the NFL.

    The best receiver in the NFL was in that game tonight, but only got the ball twice, thanks to his ridiculously ineffective quarterback.

    Per inch of height, yes.

    Fitzgerald has passed Moss.

    Congratulations to Mike Trgovac and the Panthers secondary for not doing too much to game plan for Larry Fitzgerald.

    Yes, Fitz is that good. And not making up much of a game plan to account for him isn't good for opponents of the Cardinals.

    Fitzgerald is arguably not even the best receiver on his team. Smith is far better. Better hands, better speed, but far worse quarterback. I'd take Calvin Johnson over Fitz as well. Not saying he isn't outstanding, but he's not the best.

    I'm afraid I disagree. Fitzgerald has more raw ability than Boldin and CJohnson, IMHO.

    larry fitzgerald is a stud.
    anyone out there have the DVD they put out on him back in his college days for A-A promos?
    might be worth putting on Ebay if we get laid off.

    You think Fitzgerald, with shitty QBs throwing to him and no one on the other side to draw defenses away, would have put up the numbers Calvin Johnson did this year? Maybe, maybe not. I got Fitzgerald and Johnson 1-2, but I'm not sure it should be in that order. As I said before, I think Johnson's year — in which he tied for the league lead in TDs and put up roughly 1,300 yards on one of the worst teams in NFL history — has been criminally undervalued.
