"Fitzmagic" was more like "Fitzpathetic" on Sunday



In a nutshell, here is what happened on Sunday. The $100+ million dollar defensive line had no sacks or pressure on Jets Quarterback (QB) Mark Sanchez. Sanchez had a fantastic day while the Bills got horrendous play at QB from Ryan Fitzpatrick. That's really pretty much it. Sure, there were plenty of other things that happened in the game, like a long punt return touchdown and Spiller’s fumble. The defensive backs showed a horrifying inability to cover anyone, as well as being physically manhandled at the line of scrimmage by the Jets Wide Receivers.

Neither QB in this game faced fierce pressure, but Fitzpatrick was bad. Ryan Fitzpatrick was nicknamed “Fitzmagic”, but he looked more like “Fitzpathetic” on the field on Sunday.


If some Bills fans were skeptical of whether or not Fitzpatrick could take the Bills to the playoffs before the season, imagine how they're feeling now. Even the Fitzpatrick supporters have to start questioning the QB's abilities to play good consistent football. Even though Fitz was late getting the ball out to Stevie on the first pick, if that ball was thrown far enough to the outside, it's either incomplete or caught by Johnson. The second interception was thrown behind an open David Nelson. Those aren't bad decisions, those are just bad throws by Fitz. The 3rd pick that went for the touchdown, well that was indeed a bad decision from which you see from the likes of High School QB’s, not starting NFL QB’s. Fitz was either throwing behind receiver's, slow to throw the pass or telegraphing his passes.

That's a lot of bad in one game. Needless to say the Bills are going to need much better play from their starting QB if they're going to ever beat the Jets.

This is Fitzpatrick's last chance in Buffalo. If Fitz is the long-term solution, then it's time he starts playing that way on a consistent basis. On paper, the Bills have their best roster in years and can no longer wait for Fitzpatrick to play consistently good football.
