Today’s question: At 32 and in a new role, how is wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald viewed among the teams in the NFC West?
Nick Wagoner, St. Louis Rams: The easy answer in St. Louis is this: With unanimous respect. Every year when the Rams are preparing to play the Cardinals, Rams defenders go out of their way to pay their respects to Fitzgerald. And well they should, considering his 138 catches for 1,631 yards and 16 touchdowns in 22 career games against them. Fitzgerald didn’t get much done against the Rams in the final meeting between the teams in 2014, but he posted nine catches for 112 yards in the first matchup. That said, considering the slugfest nature of the Rams-Cardinals meetings last season, it’s the big plays St. Louis has to worry most about now. That’s not Fitzgerald’s game anymore, which means the Rams will have to be more aware of Michael Floyd and John Brown moving forward.
