Having watched Buffalo Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick struggle mightily over his team's seven-game losing streak, it's hard to remember that he was the AFC Offensive Player of the Month in September. His play has certainly been offensive of late.

Fitzpatrick got that award after the Bills' Week 3 upset win over the New England Patriots. Through those first three games, Fitzpatrick completed 64.9 percent of his passes for 841 yards with nine touchdowns, three interceptions and a quarterback rating of 103.5.

Today, Fitzpatrick leads the NFL in thrown interceptions with 19, including three in yesterday's 30-23 loss to the Miami Dolphins and 12 of the 19 coming during the team's seven-game skid. He's continued his trend as a quarterback that throws picks in bunches, as he's thrown two or more interceptions in half (seven) of his games played this year.

Chan Gailey told reporters after yesterday's game that he's lost zero confidence in Fitzpatrick as his starting quarterback. As the ensuing comments section to this post will prove, it's fair to say that Bills fans have lost far more than zero confidence in Fitzpatrick.
