    Suggs didn't end up here for one reason - public image. He was charged with felony aggravated assault just before the draft and there is no way in heck Mr. Bidwiill was going to draft him after that. It got cleared up later, but the damage had already been done. It's amazing how often he gets brought up despite this fact.

    Didn't he go after someone with a pipe or something like that?

    I was very angry they didn't draft Suggs because of this. The charge was ******** from the get go.

    I would argue it was the biggest draft blunder in Arizona. Thanks for reminding me about it. :(

    Missing out on drafting a running back top 5? We were just ahead of the times! Most of this board would freak out at the idea of drafting a running back that high.

    I don’t think AP falls far in today’s draft. He was another world in terms of talent. And that’s even with the knowledge he was a talented pass catcher outta Oklahoma. Running backs are definitely downgraded as a rule, but truly transcendent talents are still recognized. And there was no deny that with AP. If not for his injury history I’d be surprised if he was drafted as low (#7) as he was.

    Kurt Warner was on KTAR earlier and he said he feels Fitz really doesn't know yet whether or not he's going to play or retire. He said "If he knew he was done and he was going to just retire...he'd have retired by now. That's as simple as making an announcement. He must be watching all of the team moves and continuing to see how he feels and if he's ready to give it another go." He said he may still retire, but this not knowing looks more like he is leaning toward returning, in his opinion. He said he has not spoken to Larry about this and has no inside info other than having been a professional player himself who had gone through making that tough decision on whether to play again or hang it up.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Larry does nothing, carries on training and keeping in shape, and then gets picked up by a contender late in the season when they lose a wide receiver.

    He’s said Arizona or retire in the past. I still believe it’s here (Az) or a broadcast booth.

    As I have stated, Larry holding out this long to then later say he is retiring before the season starts is diva all the way, but I will now give him the benefit of the doubt from the only impression I have of him as a fan from a far and that this is not the case because he's coming back. I highly doubt he has any intentions to switch uniforms and go to a 'contender' because if so he would done so already. I also do not buy the crap that Warner or Palmer have not talked to him about retiring and a myriad of other subjects because you know the old guard keeps in touch since they are part of a fraternity of their era. Fitz likely will come back, at a salary slightly above the vet minimum, will be content just to tribute in whatever fashion, pad his stats, and do so with a crowd in the stands for his last year with the Cards and a glimmer of a championship possible... as I will be so excited to see the start of a another legend named Rondale Moore :)

    Watching the NFL 100 All-Time Team right now and they had Larry on showing his high-lights from the SB season and I am just smiling from ear to ear with how awesome that was. It is now settled in my mind. Give that man whatever he wants and play him until he’s 60. Man, between my first son being born and the Super bowl and how awesome Fitz was, that was one of the best years ever. “It’s as if I’ve been dipped in magic waters”.
