Cardinals' Fitzgerald might have no equal

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The leaping grab Larry Fitzgerald made for a 42-yard touchown reception was routine by his elevated standards.

No player in the NFC West has impressed me more than Fitzgerald this season. His ability to win at the ball regardless of coverage makes him a nearly impossible matchup when Kurt Warner has enough time to throw the ball.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt and offensive coordinator Todd Haley get credit for remembering the running game on that touchdown drive -- which gave the Cardinals a 7-0 lead. Expect more of the same as the game continues. Having a rested Edgerrin James is also working out well.
