10 greatest moments in the Cardinals career of Larry Fitzgerald
9: Earning five consecutive seasons with 1,000 yards
Heading into his fourth NFL season, Larry Fitzgerald would start a historic streak of five consecutive seasons at the 1K mark or more. At that time, only Randy Moss (five) and Jerry Rice (11) had anything close to that.
That 2007 season would be split between Matt Leinart and Kurt Warner, as their two careers were headed in opposite directions at the point. Maybe Leinart was bitter after seeing all of Warner’s success. But, on the other hand, we all knew what happened to Warner once given the reigns, who was arguably Fitzgerald’s best quarterback next to Carson Palmer.
At the end of this streak, Fitzgerald accumulated 6,480 yards on 463 catches with 49 touchdowns. That’s an average of 93/1,296/10 per season. It was an incredible streak that featured passes from Warner down to the ultimate QB Trivia question in Max Hall. Had the team not wholly bottomed out in 2012, maybe Fitzgerald’s streak would have continued.
