Geno Smith spent the first six weeks of the season sitting on the bench, watching Ryan Fitzpatrick and the rest of Jets play gross football. He finally got the starting nod against the Ravens on Sunday, and made it through four series before leaving the game with a knee injury. After the game, the injury seemed like a…
Last night, the Jets limped their way to a 28-3 loss to the Cardinals. Ryan Fitzpatrick started, went 16-for-31, and tossed a pick. He was replaced by a very mad Geno Smith, who ended his only drive by throwing a pick to Tyrann Mathieu. The Jets have a surplus of quarterbacks, but that doesn’t really help them because…
This is not what the Jets envisioned when they finally ended their very long and very weak standoff with Ryan Fitzpatrick. All they needed was a competent quarterback who could score a few points and let the defense win games, and Fitzpatrick seemed to fit the bill. The best-case scenario for the 2016 Jets was for…
After Eli Manning threw the Giants’ game away, it wasn’t going to be easy for the Jets to wrest away the New York tabloids’ back pages. Well, not only does Ryan Fitzpatrick appear on both this morning, but his achievement was so singular, they were forced to go with the exact same headline: “Pick Six.”
The New York Jets were relieved when they finally agreed to a contract with quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick at the end of July, reuniting with their starter last season and ending the Cold War of our times. Now, the team has to figure out what to do with the other three guys.
New York Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick ended his holdout last week and presented the public with a beautiful, thick head of hair, along with a beard that could smuggle at least three birds within it.
Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Jets have finally agreed to a deal, per multiple reports. The disgruntled quarterback will make $12 million on a one-year deal.
The standoff between Ryan Fitzpatrick and the New York Jets was already messy four months ago, when the team reportedly offered Fitzpatrick “backup money,” despite him having just turned in the kind of solid quarterbacking season the Jets have been sorely lacking in recent years. If you’re like me, you probably…
You, as an educated and perceptive sports fan, know leaked reports about ongoing contract negotiations should not serve as predictors of where a player will end up or what that contract will ultimately look like. But they are good barometers of who thinks it’s a good idea to play hardball by running to the media. And…
Texans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick had a career day, throwing for six touchdowns and 358 yards in today's win over the Titans. But his son Brady was the star of Fitzpatrick's postgame, showing off his multiplication skills with double-digit numbers.
Ryan Fitzpatrick was not the answer, as it turns out.
Before beating the Buffalo Bills 23-17 yesterday, Houston Texans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick gathered his team let them know that he really, really wanted to beat his old squad. Here is a rough transcription of his speech:
In a taped phone conversation, Buffalo GM Buddy Nix said QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was "going to have to do something, or we'll have to." Today, the Bills released Fitzpatrick.
Every morning, the fine folks at Sports Radio Interviews sift through the a.m. drive-time chatter to bring you the best interviews with coaches, players, and personalities across the sports landscape. Today: Yes, even better than Will Proctor, Cullen Harper, or Kyle Parker. Probably.
Ryan, Ryan, Ryan. I thought you went to a fancy school where they taught you not to do things like this? Apparently the occasion is Stevie Johnson's contract extension, which keeps the Bills' big target around for a while. Hooray?
