Consider Larry Fitzgerald another success story under Bruce Arians.

Like Hines Ward and Reggie Wayne before him, Fitzgerald was asked to be a different kind of player under Arians.

Playing in the slot seems to have worked so far -- at least through two games.

"I feel like I've been comfortable for a while," Fitzgerald said. "I just wanted to get that trust level with Carson (Palmer) and try to establish that trust with coach Arians. He's somebody you have to earn his trust, and I work every day to do everything he's asking me to do."

That chemistry was no more evident than in Week 2 when Fitzgerald registered his first three-touchdown game in the regular season.

Not only is he putting up big numbers in the box score, but Fitzgerald has become one of the better blocking wide receivers.

It's a testament to how much the veteran still wants to win.
