07:54 AM ET 12.10 | By virtue of his profession, Larry Fitzgerald Sr. had to know that, by venting on Twitter, his son would probably have some explaining to do in Arizona. Larry Fitzgerald Sr., a sportswriter who occasionally opines about his son's athletic endeavors, took to Twitter on Sunday and ripped the Cardinals as they went through a dismal 58-0 loss to the Seahawks. "Pathetic performance by Arizona Cardinals," Fitzgerald wrote. "Cardinals loss 9 straight can't do anything right." Fitzgerald also referred to the blowout loss as, "Humbling embarrassing frustrating angering disappointing painful.What happens when u quit!" The elder Fitzgerald also referenced Larry Jr.'s high school experience, when Larry Sr. transferred his son to a different school.

Not sure Sr. Fitzgerald didn't just tell it like it is. Pretty tough to suck that bad unless you're just mailing it in.

Dad, I don't think you can "transfer" to another NFL team. Would be nice, though.

His Grandma's tweets were unprintable.

When you lose 58-0 to a rookie quarterback, the whole team, the whole staff and the owners have some 'splainin' to do.

Cut the whole team, fire the coaches, shoot the owner and send the cheerleaders 'round to my place for a good spanking.

I don't feel sorry for Fitz, after signing that extension with this squad.

The chances for a Hall of Fame career are slipping away, though. I have a soft spot for a guy who shows loyalty to a team, even is this day and age. At the same time, though, this team has done absolutely nothing for him.

He showed a loyalty to the $. Arizona gave him a huge signing bonus.

58-0 is the very definition of pathetic.

He's going to the HofF.

I also feel bad for Fitz being stranded on a terrible team where his talents go to waste. I became a fan of his their superbowl year when I never saw a player hustle harder than he did. And he's still giving that same effort, at least he did the few times I saw them play this year. I'd like to see him playing with a better qb and team.

EPIC!!!

The Seahawks defense gave me 41 FF points yesterday.

Go Seahawks!!!

This team is peaking at the right time. They're going to be a very tough out in the NFC, especially if they manage to get that #2 seed with a home game or two.

December 10, 2012  08:51 AM ET

As if the ripping from the Seahawks wasn't enough.
