The Greatest Arizona Cardinals of all Time

The Arizona Cardinals have a glorious history, with two NFL championships and a number of playoff appearances. The Cardinal faithful have always followed the team through its ups and downs. Let’s look at two of the greatest players to ever wear the Cardinals jersey.

Larry Fitzgerald
Fitzgerald was the third overall pick in the 2004 NFL draft, and he is worth every penny. He has reached a super status that very few have achieved. His knack for catching passes and scoring touchdowns is awe-inspiring, and his athleticism leaves so many fans bewildered. He has made himself a part of history by ranking 5th in NFL all-time for receiving yards, has the most touchdowns and receiving yards in a postseason, most receptions in a postseason, and the youngest NFL player to reach 700 passes.

Kurt Warner
Warner is a signal caller who had a very rough start in Arizona. He had scores of injuries in his first season, which led him to lose his starting position in his second year with the team. But he bounced back, and did so in big way. He helped the Cardinals get better and better. So much so that he contributed greatly in an unbelievable playoff run the following year, which culminated in the first appearance of the Cardinals in Super Bowl history. Although he didn’t wear the jersey as long as others did, his impact on the team in a short period of time prompted many football experts to consider him as the greatest QB to ever wear the Cardinals’ colors.
