2015 Week 17 vs BUF (16 / 37 / 181 / 2 / 3 pass, 2 / 12 / 0 rush)
The loss is directly attributable to the poor play of Ryan Fitzpatrick, who turned in a forgettable three interception performance. Two major factors, the wind and Buffalo's pass rush, had a direct impact on his performance. New York's offensive line had trouble slowing down Buffalo's talented array of pass rushers. The wind, on the other hand, made downfield passing even harder for Fitzpatrick, who struggled all season with the deep ball. Fitzpatrick also threw three, fourth quarter interceptions that sealed his team's fate. Midway through the fourth quarter, Fitzpatrick targeted Decker on a corner route, but underthrew him and the pass was intercepted by Leodis McKelvin. Fitzpatrick threw his third and final interceptions with just 20 seconds remaining. Fitzpatrick targeted Decker on a crossing route, but the ball was underthrown and intercepted to end the game. Fitzpatrick did throw two more touchdown passes to Marshall and Decker, but a third scoring strike would have resulted in a playoff berth. Overall, it was a forgettable performance by Fitzpatrick in New York's biggest game of the last five seasons. Fitzpatrick, an impending free agent, had a great season and will have some leverage in his contract negotiations.
2015 Week 16 vs NE (26 / 41 / 296 / 3 / 0 pass, 2 / 13 / 0 rush)
Ryan Fitzpatrick missed a few easy throws early in the game, but rebounded in a big way as the game progressed. Early in the first quarter, Fitzpatrick over-shot Kenbrell Thompkins on a deep post route that would have resulted in an easy touchdown. During the second quarter, Fitzpatrick hit Quincy Enunwa in a stride on a deep post route, but the ball bounced off of Enunwa's hands and fell incomplete. Right before halftime, Fitzpatrick started to develop a rhythm, hooking up with Brandon Marshall for a 2-yard touchdown. Marshall ran a tight corner route, boxed out the smaller defender, and hauled in the scoring strike. Early in the third quarter, Fitzpatrick went back to Marshall on a deep sideline route for a 33-yard scoring strike. This scoring play gave New York a 17-3 advantage that would slowly vanish as the third quarter progressed. Late in the third quarter, Fitzpatrick was strip-sacked by Jabaal Sheard and the fumble was returned by Jamie Collins for a touchdown. It was Fitzpatrick's first turnover in five games and unfortunately cut New York's lead to 17-13. New England was able to tie the game in the fourth quarter, forcing overtime. Fitzpatrick and New York's offense, however, benefitted from a curious coin toss decision by New England and drove 80 yards to win the game. During the game winning drive, Fitzpatrick went 3-for-3 on his pass attempts for 74 yards. On his third pass attempt, Fitzpatrick found Decker for 6 yards for the game winning touchdown. Decker ran a tight corner route, beating Malcom Butler at the line of scrimmage to position himself to secure the game winning score. While the Fitzpatrick-Decker touchdown won the game, Fitzpatrick's 48-yard completion to Quincy Enunwa set-up the game-winning scoring strike. Enunwa atoned for his drop earlier in the game and proved that he could make a play in crunch time. Credit Fitzpatrick for once again making plays when his team needed him the most.
2015 Week 15 vs DAL (26 / 39 / 299 / 1 / 1 pass, 5 / 13 / 0 rush)
As the season has progressed, the identity of New York's offense has transformed from a hard-nosed, rushing attack to a pass-first approach. The change in identity is a direct result of Fitzpatrick's ability to shift from a game manager to a confident, 'pass first' quarterback. During the fourth quarter, Fitzpatrick completed 10-of-12 passes for 132 yards, which culminated with 10 'game winning' points. Midway through the fourth quarter, Fitzpatrick hooked up with Eric Decker for a 3-yard touchdown. As we've seen week after week, Decker used his size and physicality to win at the line of scrimmage, created a small opening and received a quick strike from Fitzpatrick. This scoring play gave New York a 16-13 lead. Dallas was able to tie the game with a field goal at the two-minute warning, giving Fitzpatrick one final drive to win the game. Fitzpatrick didn't disappoint---easily pacing the offense into field goal range. It took New York eight plays to get into field goal, but Fitzpatrick's trust and faith in secondary options set up the game winning field goal. On a 3rd-and-13 play, Fitzpatrick found Kenbrell Thompkins down the right sideline for a 43-yard gain. Thompkins was able to use a quick fake to shake his defender and run free into the secondary. Due to injuries, Thompkins and third wide receiver, Quincy Enunwa, played critical roles at time. Of note, Enunwa was instrumented on third down and made several big catches to prolong drives. Decker and Marshall both suffered leg injuries during the first half, but luckily returned and made an impact during the second half. Fitzpatrick continues to play the best football of his long career and is playing in arguably the biggest game of his career next week against the Patriots.
2015 Week 14 vs TEN (21 / 36 / 263 / 3 / 0 pass, 3 / 23 / 0 rush)
Another week, another dominant performance by Ryan Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick extended his turnover-free streak to over 120 pass attempts while chucking another three touchdown passes. Fitzpatrick benefitted from several blown coverages and his pass catchers generating yardage after the catch. During the second quarter, Fitzpatrick set-up a short screen for Bilal Powell and Powell was able to score from 16 yards out. New York's offensive line did an excellent job of setting up its blocks, but credit Powell for finding space and accelerating through it. Tennessee's defenders attempted to 'shoulder tackle' Powell, which proved to be a fruitless endeavor. Right before halftime, Fitzpatrick benefitted from a bit of good luck, hooking up with Brandon Marshall for a 69-yard scoring play. Simply put, Tennessee's secondary forgot to cover Marshall, so Fitzpatrick hit him with a quick screen and Marshall made the scoring play happen after the catch. Fitzpatrick also connected with Eric Decker for a 16-yard scoring play during the first quarter. Like we've seen week after week, Decker ran a tight post route and Fitzpatrick threw it in a spot where only Decker could make a play. While it may go somewhat unnoticed, Fitzpatrick continued to make plays with his legs, scrambling for 19 yards and picking up a key first down during the first half. Fitzpatrick's scramble prolonged New York's first drive, which resulted in his scoring strike to Decker. Over the last three games, Fitzpatrick has thrown nine touchdowns and no interceptions. He's playing arguably the best football of his long career and his offense is peaking at the right time.
2015 Week 13 vs NYG (36 / 50 / 390 / 2 / 0 pass, 5 / 22 / 0 rush)
Ryan Fitzpatrick delivered one of the best performances by a New York Jet quarterback in recent memory; Fitzpatrick's 390 passing yards were the most since Vinny Testaverde threw for 481 yards in 2000. Fitzpatrick proved that he could lead a comeback effort, erasing a 10-point, 4th quarter deficit to force overtime. While Fitzpatrick's final stat line looks impressive, the Jets' offense was fairly stagnant for two and a half quarters. Fitzpatrick, however, caught fire late in the third quarter, and into overtime, completing 19 of his 26 attempts for nearly 200 yards and a touchdown. Fitzpatrick's late game surge was a direct result of peppering Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker with targets. Decker, in particular, became unstoppable when he lined up in the slot. At one point in the fourth quarter, Fitzpatrick and Decker connected three straight times on post routes for a total gain of 50 yards. Marshall, who was jawing and fighting with Giants' defenders throughout the game, asserted his will and bullied defenders at the catch point. Fitzpatrick and Marshall were locked in, hooking up for 12 completions in 13 pass attempts. With just 27 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, Fitzpatrick and Marshall connected for a 9-yard touchdown strike. Fitzpatrick threw the target high, allowing Marshall, and his 6'5" frame, to 'go-get' the ball. In overtime, Fitzpatrick paced the Jets' offense down the field, but ultimately settled for a field goal. Fitzpatrick had Decker open for a short, game winning touchdown, but was unable to connect. Finally, credit Bilal Powell for his pass protection and passing game chops. The Giants' defensive line was able to generate pressure throughout the game, but Powell's pass blocking ability gave Fitzpatrick extra time to find Marshall and Decker. Fitzpatrick and Powell were also able to hook-up for a 25-yard touchdown on a screen in the middle of the field. Finally, one of the most overlooked aspects of Fitzpatrick's performance--no turnovers. Fitzpatrick's ball protection is elite and that alone keeps his team in games.
2015 Week 12 vs MIA (22 / 37 / 277 / 4 / 0 pass, 5 / 21 / 0 rush)
Amidst a 'quarterback controversy' after two poor performances, Ryan Fitzpatrick silenced any doubters by turning in a four-touchdown, turnover-free outing. Still playing with a brace on his left hand, Fitzpatrick's passes were much crisper than prior weeks. Fitzpatrick attacked Miami's defense with his arm and legs, throwing caution to wind when scrambling and diving 'head first' for first downs. Fitzpatrick took turns picking on Miami's corners, singling out Brent Grimes, Jamar Taylor and Brice McCain at different points during the game. Fitzpatrick and Brandon Marshall abused Grimes throughout the game, utilizing Marshall's larger frame to win one-on-one and jump ball situations. Fitzpatrick and Marshall hooked up for two touchdown strikes, once during the first quarter and a second time during the fourth quarter. During the first quarter, Marshall ran a corner route and Fitzpatrick lobbed the ball in for a 16-yard score. Later in the fourth quarter, Marshall ran a slant route and hauled in a 3-yard touchdown. Marshall easily won at the catch point, making the scoring plays seem somewhat routine. Devin Smith scored his first touchdown right before halftime, running a tight post route and catching a strike from Fitzpatrick for a 16-yard touchdown. Fitzpatrick showed a lot of faith for targeting Smith in a high leverage situation--and Smith cashed in. Eric Decker found the end zone for the 7th time this season, running a slant route and hauling in a 2-yard touchdown pass during the third quarter. Credit Quincy Enunwa for clearing out the defenders and Fitzpatrick for instantly recognizing that Decker was wide open. Fitzpatrick proved that, without a shadow of a doubt, he gives this team the best chance to win games.
2015 Week 11 vs HOU (19 / 39 / 216 / 1 / 2 pass, 5 / 12 / 1 rush)
Just nine days removed form a thumb surgery, Fitzpatrick failed to develop a rhythm against a suddenly resurgent Houston defensive front. While Fitzpatrick did try to force some throws into tight windows, New York's offensive line was simply overmatched. JJ Watt's impact on the game's outcome cannot be unstated; Watt cycled across the defensive front and dominated right tackle, Breno Giacomini in one-on-one situations. Watt was constantly in Fitzpatrick's face, racking up five quarterback hits and two sacks. The coaching staff failed to supply a double team for Giacomini, so Fitzpatrick was under constant duress. Despite playing with an injured thumb, Fitzpatrick continued to scramble with reckless abandonment. During the second quarter, Fitzpatrick fumbled, but Bilal Powell luckily recovered. Late in the fourth quarter, Fitzpatrick scrambled for six yards and dove into the end zone for New York's second touchdown. Fitzpatrick's scramble cut Houston's lead to 24-17, but Fitzpatrick took another big hit as he crossed the goal line. Doctors checked him for a concussion, but luckily, he stayed in the game. Fitzpatrick threw one touchdown to Brandon Marshall, a 21-yard strike out a corner route. Marshall was matched up against rookie, Kevin Johnson and delivered a perfect throw to Marshall. Outside of this scoring play, Fitzpatrick primarily settled for short completions on check downs to Bilal Powell and short crossing routes to Eric Decker. It's also worth noting that rookie Devin Smith dropped a sure-fire touchdown on a go-route, so his development is not progressing as most had hoped.
2015 Week 10 vs BUF (15 / 34 / 193 / 2 / 2 pass, 3 / 30 / 0 rush)
Ryan Fitzpatrick made some costly physical and mental mistakes that halted New York's second half surge. Despite throwing two key second half touchdowns to Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker, Fitzpatrick was unable to make game winning plays in the fourth quarter. Midway through the fourth quarter, Fitzpatrick was engineering a strong drive and had Buffalo's defense on its heels. On a 3rd-and-3 play from Buffalo's 6-yard line, Fitzpatrick audibled out of a designed run for Chris Ivory and called a pick play for Eric Decker. Jeff Cumberland was the designated 'pick', but bumped into Decker at the line of the scrimmage and Decker was tackled for a 1-yard loss. New York opted to go for it on fourth down, but Fitzpatrick made a curious decision to target back-up tight end, Kellen Davis on a pick play. Davis ran a corner route, but did not pivot his head around quickly enough and the ball landed in the back corner of the end zone. Credit Buffalo's defense for disrupting Davis at the line of scrimmage, but question Fitzpatrick's decision making on that play. Buffalo opted to double team Brandon Marshall, but the decision to target Davis was baffling. Fitzpatrick was not limited by his thumb injury and took some shots down the field. His receivers, however, ran some sloppy routes. During a last ditch drive in the fourth quarter, Fitzpatrick was intercepted on a deep crossing route. Kenbrell Thompkins, who started and primary played as the third wide receiver, strung out his route, giving the defender an easy opportunity to intercept the pass. Fitzpatrick opted to have surgery on his thumb on Friday afternoon and will likely play next week against Houston.
2015 Week 9 vs JAX (21 / 34 / 272 / 2 / 0 pass, 4 / 0 / 0 rush)
One week after tearing a ligament in his left thumb, Ryan Fitzpatrick returned to action and played well enough to win. Unlike prior weeks, Fitzpatrick took the majority of his snaps from the shotgun and only used his left hand as a guide. Fitzpatrick did not have any issue putting velocity on his throws, fitting two tight throws, one to Eric Decker and the other to Brandon Marshall, for game changing touchdowns. Early in the first quarter, Fitzpatrick found Decker in the middle of the end zone for an easy 7-yard pitch-and-catch. Fitzpatrick scrambled to prolong the play, but credit Decker for beating his defender and making a nice back shoulder catch. Late in the fourth quarter, Fitzpatrick hooked up with Marshall for a game-sealing 20-yard touchdown. Marshall dogged corner, Davon House and made an acrobatic catch to finish the scoring play. Fitzpatrick's scoring strike to Marshall gave New York a 28-13 lead. While Fitzpatrick made some plays, he missed some easy throws and overshot Marshall in the second quarter, which would have resulted in an easy touchdown. Fitzpatrick will have to be sharper when the Buffalo Bills come to town.
2015 Week 8 vs OAK (4 / 5 / 46 / 0 / 0 pass, 1 / 12 / 0 rush)
Ryan Fitzpatrick injured his left thumb on the game's sixth play and gave way to Geno Smith. Fitzpatrick scrambled on a third down play and went head first instead of sliding. Fitzpatrick thumb got caught under the defender and he left the game until the final few plays of the game. Geno Smith came on in relief, but Fitzpatrick had to enter the game late in the fourth quarter after Smith took a big hit. Fitzpatrick was able to throw the ball downfield since the injury occurred to his non-throwing hand, but nonetheless, he entered the game in an emergency situation. The announcers indicated that Fitzpatrick may have suffered a ligament injury, but the severity isn't known.
2015 Week 7 vs NE (22 / 39 / 295 / 2 / 0 pass, 5 / 29 / 0 rush)
Given the circumstances, Ryan Fitzpatrick played a solid game under tough conditions. Chris Ivory re-injured his balky hamstring on New York's first play, putting more pressure on Fitzpatrick to make plays. Feeling the effects of additional pressure, Fitzpatrick lost a fumble on New York's second play, which led to three points for New England. Fitzpatrick, however, was able to re-group and threw multiple touchdown passes for the fifth time in six starts. Early in the second quarter, Fitzpatrick hit Jeremy Kerley on a quick slant route for a 5-yard touchdown. Late in the third quarter, Fitzpatrick found Chris Ivory wide open on a wheel route for an easy 9-yard touchdown. The touchdown passes to these two unlikely recipients were a microcosm of New York's gameplan. New England rolled its coverage to Brandon Marshall, forcing Fitzpatrick to lean on his other targets. In addition to Kerley and Ivory, Eric Decker came up big, hauling in four, chain-moving opportunities on third down. Late in the fourth quarter, New York recovered an on-sides kick and had just ten seconds to score a touchdown to tie the game. New York, unfortunately, did not have any timeouts and Fitzpatrick made a mistake to throw the ball over the middle of thefield. Decker was able to haul in a reception for a 12-yard gain, but it was a poor decision when Fitzpatrick should have thrown a 'Hail Mary' into the end zone. Fitzpatrick was able to spike the ball with one second remaining, but a false start by Marshall ended the game.
2015 Week 6 vs WAS (19 / 26 / 253 / 2 / 1 pass, 4 / 31 / 1 rush)
Coming off a bye week, Ryan Fitzpatrick played his best game of the season. While Fitzpatrick did throw his seventh interception of the season, he made the play of the game with his legs. Playing with a short field after an interception by Revis, Fitzpatrick scrambled and ran in a touchdown from 18 yards away. This scoring play gave New York a 20-13, third quarter lead; a lead New York wouldn't relinquish. No one will mistake Fitzpatrick for Russell Wilson or Cam Newton, but he's an underrated athlete that can make plays happen with his legs. Fitzpatrick also threw touchdown passes to Brandon Marshall (35 yards) and Eric Decker (2 yards), but credit both Marshall and Decker for extraordinary individual efforts to complete the scoring plays.
2015 Week 4 vs MIA (16 / 29 / 218 / 1 / 1 pass, 9 / 34 / 0 rush)
Ryan Fitzpatrick had all of his main weapons at his disposal, but turned in a mediocre individual performance. Fitzpatrick benefitted from a dominant effort from his offensive line, which buoyed a 204-yard rushing attack. Fitzpatrick, however, forced some throws and could have picked off three or four times by Miami's defense. Fitzpatrick did manage a few strong throws, including a 57-yard strike to Brandon Marshall on New York's first play and a tight throw to Eric Decker on a post-route for a 10-yard touchdown. Fitzpatrick was also able to pick up first downs with his legs, picking up 34 yards when Miami opted to sit in deep zone coverage. Fitzpatrick made a few key throws, but did make some mistakes that will hopefully get ironed out during the bye week. Since New York enters its bye week with a 3-1 record, a quarterback change won't likely be made.
2015 Week 3 vs PHI (35 / 58 / 283 / 2 / 3 pass, 4 / 13 / 0 rush)
Without two of his top playmakers, Fitzpatrick attempted to lead an offense that was clearly limited. After falling into an early double digit hole, New York's game plan revolved around force feeding Brandon Marshall, who was regularly double teamed. New York's offensive line was also dominated at the line of scrimmage and regularly lost their one-on-one assignments. These issues snowballed and ultimately resulted in turnovers. Fitzpatrick attempted a season-high 58 pass attempts and threw three interceptions. Fitzpatrick's third interception went through Marshall's hands and ultimately sealed the victory for Philadelphia. Fitzpatrick did throw two touchdown passes, one to Marshall and one late touchdown strike to Jeremy Kerley. Right before halftime, Fitzpatrick found Marshall on a deep post route for a relatively easy score. Late in the fourth quarter, Fitzpatrick threw a dart to Kerley on a post route that was reminiscent of the strike that Fitzpatrick threw to Eric Decker in Week 2. Fitzpatrick was signed to manage games, but New York's porous effort on special teams, lackluster defensive play and overmatched offensive line put him in situations where he couldn't succeed.
2015 Week 2 vs IND (22 / 34 / 244 / 2 / 1 pass, 1 / 6 / 0 rush)
With the Jets controlling field position, the star of Monday Night Football in Week 2 was the Jets defense as Ryan Fitzpatrick and Andrew Luck traded punts most of the night. Fitzpatrick got his first win at Lucas Oil Stadium and finished the game 23 of 34 for 244 yards and two touchdowns with one interception. He threw a touchdown to both Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall. On the first drive of the game it was clear that the Jets were going to take advantage of this zone defense scheme of the Colts as they went back to back plays to Eric Decker for 12 and 14 yards respectively on crossing routes. After an Andrew Luck interception Fitzpatrick wastes no time taking advantage hitting Eric Decker on a 6-yard touchdown pass in the slot. This gave the Jets an early 7-0 lead in the first quarter. Late in the first quarter Fitzpatrick got number one receiver Brandon Marshall involved as well as he throws a great pass on third down that Marshall turns into a 42-yard gain. Fitzpatrick recognized the zone coverage drop down into the flat and was able to connect with Marshall after he adjusted his route. In the second quarter Fitzpatrick is picked off when trying to pass downfield to Brandon Marshall. Colts cornerback Vontae Davis, who has been physically covering Marshall all night, tips the ball into pro-bowler Mike Adams hands in the end zone who makes a great play to get both feet in bounds. After yet another Andrew Luck turnover, Fitzpatrick picks up right where he left off in the first half, effortlessly hitting Eric Decker in zone coverage. The injuries to the Indianapolis corners doesn't allow them to play man coverage against the talented Jets receivers but Decker is literally getting open at will. Fitzpatrick does take another shot deep to Marshall in double coverage but the ball is knocked down and the drive ends in a field goal. After Eric Decker goes down with an apparent knee injury in the second half as well as top Colts Corner Vontae Davis out of the game, Fitzpatrick really got going with Brandon Marshall. He threw his second touchdown pass of the night on a back shoulder throw to Marshal battling through three defenders on his back to cross the goal line. This pushed the lead back to 10 points late in the 4th quarter where the Jets defense would come up with another turnover allowing Fitzpatrick to milk the clock.
2015 Week 1 vs CLE (15 / 24 / 179 / 2 / 1 pass, 2 / -1 / 0 rush)
Ryan Fitzpatrick was very solid in his start as a member of the Jets. Fitzpatrick, who is known as a game manager, did an excellent job of keeping Cleveland's defense off-balance by intermixing quick completions with Chris Ivory's hard-nosed runs. Fitzpatrick threw two touchdown passes, one to Eric Decker on a corner route and one to Brandon Marshall on a fade. Fitzpatrick's touchdown pass to Marshall was completed relatively easy due to Marshall's pure stature against a smaller corner, Joe Haden. Marshall gives Fitzpatrick a physical, dominant red zone presence. Fitzpatrick did throw one interception, but was luckily bailed out by Marshall, who stripped the ball away from the defender. Fitzpatrick commanded Chan Gailey's offenses effectively and let Chris Ivory dominate in early down situations.
Latest NewsJets | New York could keep four quarterbacks (Tue May 3, 07:15 PM) - New York Jets QBs Geno Smith, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg, and possibly free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) could all be on New York's roster when the 2016 regular season commences. General manager Mike Maccagnan said if it's in the best interest of the team then they will keep four quarterbacks. 'It's been done before,' Maccagnan said. 'To me, it's a position where you have to take some time to really invest, grow and develop players.' Our View: The Jets could have Fitzpatrick compete with Geno Smith for the starting job. They could then see if Petty could hold off Hackenberg for the third-string/developmental job. The loser of that battle could wind up on the team's practice squad. The talks with Fitzpatrick are at a standstill right now, but things could change quickly at any time.
link to story Jets | General manager excited for Geno Smith (Tue May 3, 04:31 PM) - New York Jets QB Geno Smith could start for the Jets in 2016 if free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) is not re-signed. That prospect has general manager Mike Maccagnan excited. 'Right now, Geno has been a starter for us, and actually played quite well prior to getting hurt last year, and was doing a good job in the offseason,' Maccagnan said. 'So we're kind of excited to see what Geno can do, coming back. And we feel good about that.' Our View: Is Maccagnan serious here? Smith gets to work under noted quarterback whisperer Chan Gailey for another season, so there may be a little bit of hope for him yet. However, Smith needs to prove that he can consistently make good decisions as a passer under pressure. A broken jaw last year (caused by a former teammate) knocked Smith out of the lineup where Ryan Fitzpatrick was able to take over and thrive as the starter.
link to story Jets | No talks between Jets, Ryan Fitzpatrick (Fri Apr 29, 09:32 PM) - The last time free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and the New York Jets had any meaningful talks was 'weeks ago,' according to one source. Our View: As we thought. At this point, there's not going to be movement, as the Jets are firmly set in moving on. They certainly aren't going to add more to their offer.
link to story Jets | Christian Hackenberg should sit first year (Fri Apr 29, 09:01 PM) - New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg is expected to sit and grow in his first season in the NFL. If free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) is re-signed, it could very well only be a one-year deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Our View: He's going to have to wait because he's absolutely not ready now. As for Fitzpatrick, he has a choice to either retire as threatened or take the only offer he's had in what the Jets put out there. He would be a great fill in for the year, but his pride might be in the way.
link to story Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick may not play (Thu Apr 28, 04:30 PM) - Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) has told people he would rather not play football this season than play for the New York Jets under their latest contract offer. Our View: Well he'd better get his Lazy-Boy ready because nobody else has come knocking. Fitzpatrick has seen no interest even from the QB-desperate Broncos. We think the Jets might raise their offer from the reported $7 million to maybe $10, but it's clear Fitzpatrick wants more since nobody else is biting. The Jets seem Ok moving on without him, relying on a good defense, a solid run game and two very nice wide receivers.
