I started thinking about my favorite team, the Arizona Cardinals. Then I started thinking about all of their off-season woes.
Anquan Boldin and Darnell Dockett not showing up for OTA's, citing hamstring issues. Then come to find out, they are still not satisfied with their contracts. Surprise, surprise.
Then I started thinking about their star player: Larry Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald has been a light shining down on the darkness that is the Arizona Cardinals. Let's face it, before his arrival, the Cards weren't exactly the talk of the NFL.
I wonder what questions I would ask him if I were to sit down and interview. I imagine it would go a little something like this.
Larry, what is it like to be part of a franchise that went from the very bottom, to seconds away from the top?
What is your take on the off-season issues concerning your teammates Anquan Boldin and Darnell Dockett?
You have often been called the modern-day Jerry Rice, what's your take on that, and do you believe you are deserving of that title?
What's your biggest accomplishment, and if you have not achieved it yet, what's your biggest goal left to achieve?
What are your predictions for this upcoming season?
When it is all said and done and your career is over, what would you want the fans to think about when they see old footage of you?
A lot of fans consider you to be the best college receiver in the history of college football, do you agree with this and if not who do you consider to be a better receiver than you?
You recently said that you would take a decrease in your contract in order to give Boldin the contract he desired. In an era where it seems as if money rules everything, what keeps you grounded enough to be that guy, the ultimate teammate?
Honestly, it would be a dream come true to interview Larry Fitzgerald. The questions I have listed here are all opinion questions obviously, but there is so much truth to them.
The only problem is that he's not an opinionated person, he is not a "me first" kind of guy. He's the ultimate teammate.
Hopefully I get a chance to interview this amazing player, and I know that if I ever do get that chance, I will receive nothing but humble answers.
