Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald has been one of the most consistent performers in the league in recent years, and certainly commands the respect of an opposing defense.
Redskins defensive coordinator respects the ability of Fitzgerald, but isn’t going to be lulled to sleep by the rest of the Cardinals offense.
“Their whole offense is electrifying to be honest with you,” he said about Fitgerald. “I think [Kevin] Kolb’s done an excellent job. [Larry] Fitzgerald is a good receiver and they have great receivers. They upgraded at tight end and they have good running backs so this will be a great challenge for us because they do a lot of different things. They’re stressful in all of the different combinations they have, but we’re looking forward to it.”
That’s been a familiar sentiment with the Redskins secondary too. There’s no quit in this group, and they intend to rise to the challenge.
Here’s the rest of Haslett’s press conference:
