The two-headed running back tandem of Beanie Wells and Ryan Williams have the potential to be something special in 2012. Beanie Wells is coming off his best year as a pro, topping the 1,000 yard mark for the first time including an impressive 228 yard rushing performance against the St. Louis Rams. Ryan Williams flashed Chris Johnson-esque moves early in the 2011 camp before suffering a season-ending injury in preseason.

Many of us have been a Cardinals fan since they arrived to the valley of the sun back in 1988. Many of us have lived here our entire lives and being a Cardinals fan is a way of life, sometimes not being the easiest way of life. Cardinals fans have endured the hardest of times, many of them dating back to the Sun Devil Stadium days. Until the Arizona Cardinals reached the Super Bowl just a few years ago, the Cardinals didn’t get much respect from anyone in the NFL world.

Any Cardinal fan will tell you that offensive line help was a glaring need heading into the 2012 offseason…heck, make that, heading into the last SEVERAL offseasons. So, once the Cardinals passed on making a big o-line free agent splash, the natural assumption was QB protection would finally be addressed in the first round of the NFL Draft. That is until the stars aligned and left the golden-domer, Michael Floyd too tempting to pass up.

Since the arrival of Larry Fitzgerald to the Valley of the Sun, he has made the Cardinals an exciting team to watch. Before he arrived, the Arizona Cardinals never really had a true superstar caliber player. Since then, we have seen him play in the Superbowl, star in Nike commercials, the creation of “Fitz Knows” T- Shirts, and he even appeared on the cover of the ever so popular Madden Football video game.
So just how great is Larry Fitzgerald? Well, most fans have forgotten or didn’t even notice that he finished fourth in overall receiving yards behind Calvin Johnson, Wes Welker, and Victor Cruz. Larry had 80 receptions, 1,411 yards, and 8 touchdowns. Fans shouldn’t be surprised by these numbers, but considering the quarterback play last year these numbers are outstanding. Could you imagine if he had a ProBowl QB like Aaron Rodgers, Eli Manning, or Drew Brees throwing to him last year? I’ve been thinking about it a lot actually. Larry’s stats weren’t a product of outstanding quarterback play, it was a product of greatness. The receivers that were ahead of Larry had QB’s that threw 5,000 yards or close to it. I’m not saying Larry would’ve had more yards than those receivers above him, but you do the math folks.
Larry Fitzgerald is no doubt the greatest wide receiver to ever wear a Cardinals uniform. With the right QB throwing to him the next 5-6 years, he could be the greatest of all time.
