One of Bill Belichick’s favorite hobbies is praising his opponent during the week leading up to a game. Belichick never wants the Patriots to take the opposition too lightly, so he floods the enemy with compliments and fills the newspapers with flattering quotes about them. On Thursday, the subject of his praise was Larry Fitzgerald.

“He’s a great, great receiver, will go down as one of the all-time greats and might end up being the best ever — I don’t know,” Belichick said according to FOXSportsArizona.com. “He has size, quickness, ability to separate and gets open, exceptional hands. He’s good short, deep, with the ball in his hands after the catch; strong, very smart, sets up his routes well.”

From a talent standpoint, Fitzgerald is arguably the best receiver in the NFL and could be the greatest of all time. The issue in Arizona is the quarterback situation. It is one that has been fluid for the past several seasons, yet Fitzgerald still manages to catch 80-100 balls a season for well over 1,000 yards. Imagine what he could do with a consistent quarterback?

Kevin Kolb will get the start on Sunday in New England. He replaced the injured John Skleton last week against the Seahawks and led what turned out to be the game-winning drive. The Patriots have an improved defense, but the Titans proved you can still throw on them. If Kolb wants to lock down his position and prove that the Cardinals knew what they were doing in acquiring him, Sunday will be a good time to do that. Fitzgerald certainly makes his job that much easier.
