Here's hoping that Larry Fitzgerald gets to party like it's 2007 this year. That's what head coach Bruce Arians would like to see. After Fitzgerald recorded arguably the worst stat line of his career in 2012, Arians is putting a priority on a 2013 rebound for the 29-year-old wideout.
"It was a down year, and it's nice to see [Fitzgerald] on a mission right now to get back to where he was, and rightfully so," Arians said in a radio interview Wednesday. "He's a premier player, and we need to have him back up over 100 catches and 10-15 touchdowns."
Fitzgerald had 71 catches with four touchdowns last season. The last time he reached 100 catches with double-digit touchdowns was 2007.
I like the wording Arians uses, because it sounds like he is set on force-feeding Larry. That can be possible with Carson Palmer at quarterback. If Palmer is simply decent, Fitzgerald can be a WR1 again. He should be drafted as a high-end WR2.
