In his weekly column ranking the NFL’s starting QBs from top to bottom, Lackawanna’s own Ron Jaworski has dropped Ryan Fitzpatrick from #24 to #30.
You have to be an ESPN Insider to gain access to the full article but here’s a clip.
You’ve likely watched every snap Fitzpatrick has taken this season. Have you really been banging your head against the wall rooting for a player that ranks below everyone in the league except for two rookies? Say what you will about the turnovers, but a league leading 12 TD passes and 2 wins in 4 games has to put a guy better than 30th, right?
Use the comment section below and let us know what you think.
Fitz is to quarterbacks as Chan Gailey is to head coaches. Likeable, yes. Competent, no. At least not in the NFL. Capability to be there does not equal capability to succeed. What prepared Fitz for the NFL? Harvard? Sorry, but put a guy in we can expect something from, who earned the expectation by performing at the top level somewhere. Harvard’s opponents hardly gave him many glimpses into the future competition. That’s like saying my days in Punt, Pass & Kick prepared me well to play football for Alabama.
Yeah, Jaws is a harsh mistress on this one.
Has Fitz played any linebacker, or have I just missed it?
Defense has to come a LONG way before our record gets any better…
