11:42 AM ET 11.21 | As the Cardinals slump, thanks to a quarterback succession plan that didn't include success in the planning, their biggest star is getting frustrated. And we think it's only a matter of time before receiver Larry Fitzgerald tries to get out. Though he has a knack for saying all the right things, Fitzgerald's tact is beginning to show cracks. Earlier this week, Fitzgerald gushed about the impact that former Cardinals offensive coordinator Todd Haley (now the head coach of the Chiefs, today's Arizona opponent) on Fitzgerald's career, prompting some to think that Fitzgerald already is thinking about a reunion.

BURP...oop's!

Hmmm. . . isn't he signed to a lengthy contract in Arizona? Not that being signed to a contract really means anything.

But I can see this being more truth than rumor. It's gotta be frustrating in Arizona right now. When Warner left, the whole thing imploded. They should have begged, pleaded for him to stay. And if that didn't work, they should have taken him hostage.

They should also have realized that Leinart wasn't any type of answer at QB a while back. And then they acquired Derek Anderson. Still not sure of the thinking there...

Congrats on the Irish victory yesterday, by the way. That, plus USC losing to a 4-5 Oregon State team, was probably a great start to your football weekend.

Thank you for the congratulatory message. I'm pumped about the big game on Saturday. I wonder if Tommy Rees might be a better choice for starter over Dayne Crist. Whatever the case, he's getting a lot of good game experience, and the defense has looked surprisingly competent the last couple weeks.

As for U$C, I hope the Irish pound those effers into the middle of next week! Argh! I hate Southern Cal with a passion!

No, he's free after this season. If they keep Anderson, I don't expect the Cards to have any recievers come training camp.

Yeah, yeah, everyone knows that Fitz can run down a field and catch footballs sometimes. Some days he's actually good at it. Still, I think a lot of our pro sport stars these days could use an object lesson or twenty-five about being a good employee and loyalty to an employer that is paying them so much money. I wouldn't mind seeing all the owners agree to cut two problem players at the first given opportunity. It would be good for the sport. And whether the players think so or not; it would be good for them too.

Wouldn't he want to go to a team that has a proven QB?

He should convince the Giants to take him

This is the same ownership that signed Joe Montana, Marcus Allen, Ty Law and even Matt Cassel to big money deals. If the Chiefs can land a guy like this, they could have a legitimate passing attack of Fitzgerald, Bowe, McCluster, Chambers, etc... Say what you want about Cassel, but he doesn't make mistakes and he's showing that he can win football games. I like him more and more each time I see him play.

Or any kind of QB?????

Fitz signed a 4-year no-trade-clause deal in 2008 which means he is signed for next (hopefully) season and in 2012, he will not be a free agent until 2013. If the Cards trade him I would not be surprised, but don't get ahead of yourselves as far as Fitz deciding this for the near future--he won't be. The interns once again have jerked your collective chains and are high-fiving each other as they go get vanilla chai lattes for the real reporters.

Whew! Had me scared there for a moment. From AOL's headline tease I thought Albert was leaving St. Louis.

When a "contract" can be broken by the owner at anytime, it's hard to ask for loyalty.

You should wonder why is it that the "contracts" in the NFL are not guaranteed.

You can't ask for one sided loyalty. For you to even post such a comment (while referring to Fitz) highlights your COLOSSAL ignorance. It's clear you don't watch football, as Larry Fitzgerald is one of the best and classiest receivers playing the game today.

I said all that to say this: You're STUPID.
