He ultimately earned the first Pro Bowl selection of his career that season too.

Then after catching 69 passes for 946 yards and six touchdowns in 13 games in 2006, Fitzgerald earned seven straight Pro Bowl selections from 2007 through 2013. He was also a first-team All-Pro selection in 2008 as he had 96 catches for 1,431 yards and a league-leading 12 touchdown catches. Also in 2008, Fitzgerald helped lead the Cardinals to the Super Bowl before losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
