The second thing learned was Larry Fitzgerald really is 21 again.  He may be 32 years old on paper but something has Fitz ticking again.  He never really disappeared but Cardinals quarterbacks haven’t been able to locate him for the most part.

After an eight catch 112-yard and career high three touchdown game against the Bears, he had another game that might have been better on Sunday against the 49ers.  He had nine receptions for 134-yards and two touchdowns on Sunday.  That gives him five on the season.  He only had two touchdowns all of 2014.

What makes it even more amazing is the fact that Fitz is wide open on most of these plays.  If he isn’t open he is dragging receivers behind him.  If he isn’t dragging receivers, he is making fantastic catches.  It really does feel like 2004 again when he was drafted.

The big question right now will be can he keep it up?  I’d have to say yes if he stays healthy.  That seems to be a big question with a lot of players and Fitz is no exception.

Next: Smile coach!
