Larry Fitzgerald's immense talents were wasted last season.

The Arizona Cardinals receiver couldn't make up for the team's revolving door at quarterback during a campaign that flew off the rails in a hurry.

"It was the most frustrating season, or time, I've ever had," Fitzgerald told Bruce Cooper of The Arizona Republic. "Professionally ... or even in college, I've never had a year like that. It was tough mentally, physically it was tough, but it builds resolve. I know I never want to go through a season like that personally, or as a team, and I'm going to do everything in my power to not ever repeat that."

Fitzgerald quickly has warmed to new coach Bruce Arians. The team's new offensive-minded coach scattered Kevin Kolb, John Skelton and Brian Hoyer to the wind, replacing that train wreck with veteran Carson Palmer and backup Drew Stanton.

Palmer, from all angles, is a mixed bag, but Arians has proven he can squeeze the most out of his signal-callers. Fitzgerald sounds sold.
