Cardinals Larry Fitzgerald is not upset with the targets; Called it champagne problems

larry fitzLarry Fitzgerald has played six games in his career against the Philadelphia Eagles, scoring at least one touchdown in every single one – 10 TDs total — and averaging 6.7 catches for 107 yards per game.

“That was then, this is now,” the wide receiver said Thursday. “Different times.”

Fitzgerald doesn’t totally hide the fact he’d like more catches when he’s talking about the subject, even if he never says so directly. Fitzgerald has 23 receptions this season for 283 yards, putting him on a non-Fitz-like pace of 61 catches and 755 yards.

“I always keep it in perspective how fortunate and blessed not only me but everyone in this locker room is,” Fitzgerald said. “Not getting enough targets? Where I grew up we called those ‘champagne problems.’

“This is my job and I love it, but I also put it in its proper place.”
