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:
I'm not a man of many words!
[30 seconds of screeching noises]
Goofy white dudes flipping the hell out in an attempt to inspire their teammates to victory will always be one of life's great pleasures. And you have to give Fitzpatrick credit here: as unhinged pregame speeches go, that one was pretty good! D.J. Swearinger was feeling it, and Brian Cushing took all the posi-vibes from that bear hug and turned them into a game-high nine tackles. That's good speechin', Ryan Fitzpatrick.
