Larry Fitzgerald concerned about chemistry with Derek Anderson
Larry Fitzgerald has concerned about the quarterback situation in Arizona.
No, he’s not upset that Matt Leinart has departed. It’s having to deal with playing without Kurt Warner that is the issue. Derek Anderson will be the starting quarterback this season and because Fitzgerald missed nearly the entire preseason with a sprained knee, they haven’t spent a lot of time working together.
“I would have loved to have taken every single snap if I could with the quarterback I'm going to be catching passes from on Sunday," Fitzgerald told Bob McManaman of the Arizona Republic. "You want to get that continuity and that cohesiveness down with that person. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to do that yet.
"But I've been in the league for seven years and I know where I need to be. He's been in the league six years. I think with that experience, it will be OK. But the more we get to work together, the better we're going to be."
But Fitzgerald had a real connection with Warner and Anderson was a castoff in Cleveland.
“Those kinds of things can sidetrack you and I never let any of those things seep into my mind," Anderson said. "Things are different, yeah. But I'm going to survive. I'm still going to go out there and do my job. I'm not the first guy that's had to deal with it. I won't be the last."
