Larry Fitz Sets Record

On Sunday, Larry Fitzgerald became the youngest player in NFL history to reach the 700 receptions threshold.  Fitz hauled in nine passes for 114 yards and a touchdown in the Cardinals 27-6 victory over the Eagles.  Fitzgerald entered the game only two receptions away from the 700 mark and after struggling the first few games of the season, broke out in a big way.  Fitz had his way with Nnamdi Asomugha as the offensive focal point, catching all seven of his first half passes before the Cardinals took to the running game in the second half.

Kevin Kolb has begun to show much better pocket presence and is looking more comfortable with the ball.  With Kolb gaining confidence each week and now showing a willingness to target Fitzgerald more often, we can expect more big games from Fitz in the near future.  If Kolb can remain steady and feed his number one option and the defense can continue their great play then the Cards are going to be a tough team to beat for the rest of the season.
