Larry Fitzgerald is the New Jerry Rice

GLENDALE, AZ. -- He's got three touchdowns in the first half.

It's a lot to compare any player to Rice. But it's not unfair to do with Fitzgerald.

He has the same kind of devastating impact on defenses that Rice did. He's also excellent at beating double teams.

Like Rice was.

No wide receiver has been better than Rice. Really. no one's come close.

Until now.

First let him win a Super Bowl, second let him play a little longer and let's see. 

I don't think he'll ever come close, because Arizona will never be in another Super Bowl and he won't have Kurt Warner throwing him the ball.  It's ridiculous to think that he's the next Jerry Rice at this point of his career.   He's good, but not that good.

Maybe in like say 10 years.
And if he's got 3 SBs, 12 all pros, 13 pro bowls and everything else on

Fitzgerald has't even been in the league for 5 years.  How can you compare the two. 

Fitzgerald--2 most likley 3 playoff wins

Rice--2 many wins to count--Rice has more rings than the Cards have playoff wins

IF..IF Fitzgerald can stay healthy and IF Matt Leinert can make the same decisions that Warner has in the playoffs this year.  Warner is not going to  be there very long and Leinert is no Warner.

There will never be anyone like Rice.

He's so far ahead of every receiver of the last 15 years, I don't even think we'll see Pasta anytime soon.

This type of effort is certainly Rice-like.

Once Fitzgerald does takes over games like this for 10 years, I think we can start looking at him in that way. Until then, I'd hold off on evoking such a name.
