Arizona Still a Few Steps Short of Contending

By Cardinals Columnist Cameron Moon

There is no question that in the 2011 offseason, the Arizona Cardinals have done their part bringing players in that are going to upgrade the team. It is obvious the Cards have higher expectations of themselves than finishing in last place in their division. The moves they’ve made in acquiring true talent indicate that they are ready to make another run at the Super Bowl, and win it this time.

Before they get that far, there are still a few things that need to get done. Priority number one for the Cardinals should be locking up All Universe wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald. He has expressed his willingness to stay with the team long term as long as there is someone to throw to him and he can play in a good offense.

They’ve added a lot of offensive weapons to make the transition for new quarterback Kevin Kolb as simple as possible, and now, the main focus should be making sure Larry Fitzgerald is happy so he can continue to produce. He is far and away the team’s highest producing and most reliable target, considering that in a down year for him, he tallied 90 receptions, 1,137 yards and 6 touchdowns. General Manager Rod Graves has been quoted saying that he would like Fitzgerald to be a part of the team’s long term future: “If Larry is sincere about his willingness to remain here, then I believe we’ll get a deal worked out before the start of the season,” Graves said.
