POLL: Is It Too Early For Bills, Ryan Fitzpatrick To Talk Contract?

Way back on August 5, we asked the readers of Buffalo Rumblings if it was too soon for the Buffalo Bills to begin contract negotiations with anointed starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. 51 percent of you responded in the affirmative.

After just two regular season games, however, it is clearly time to re-assess that question. The Bills are 2-0, the offense is producing 40 points per game, and Fitzpatrick has thrown for 472 yards, seven touchdowns and just one interception in those contests. In 15 games now under Chan Gailey, Fitzpatrick has thrown for 3,472 yards, 30 touchdowns and 16 interceptions.

We know, as of last week, that the Bills and Fitzpatrick were already toying with the idea of a contract extension. Fitzpatrick told WGR 550 that he's focusing on the game, leaving the extension up to his agent. There's clear interest on Buffalo's part, who haven't seen this type of production from the quarterback position in years.

Still, it's early in the season, and the Bills haven't yet played the big guns. The question has been re-posed anyway, Bills fans (and you'll want to read the question carefully). Discuss.
