When Cimini was with the NYDN he was certainly the King A-s Hole. Since he's been with ESPN he's still snarky, but seems to have mellowed. Mehta has hands down taken the King A-s Hole award home several years running. I'm starting to think it's the NYDN sports editorial policy. All their writers are trolls

That sure looks to me like a guy that has been concussed. If Brick didn't hold him up he is going down. No not really much of a Fitz supporter. I know who he is. A journeyman QB, with limited physical skills, who has done a decent job this year. I'll be very happy if Petty evolves into his replacement, or if the Jets work a trade in the offseason to upgrade from him. It's just that the option to him right now is horrible. He is clearly the best QB on this team right now. I guess when you rate Fitz you have to establish a benchmark. If Brady is the bench mark, Fitz sucks, if smith is the bench mark, Fitz is Brady. Seems like the CS agrees
If Petty was the back up. I'd understand. smith was a 2 year starter, The Jets were favored in a very important Texans game. It should have been no problem for him to step in and do what he's paid for. Think Bowles saw all he wanted of smith in the Raiders game. smith didn't have a horrible game, but when the chips were down at the end of the game he reverted right back to what has made him a bad QB
If they wanted to give smith an extended look The Bills and Texans would have been the place to do it without upsetting team chemistry. He was seriously injured and needed surgery. It would have been so easy to sit Fitz, "for his future health" and give smith his shot.
Bowles jokingly said "we though about sitting Fitz, but it wasn't a serious thought." He went with an injured Fitz, who in the Houston game seemed to be concussed, over a healthy smith. Doesn't bode well for seeing smith again unless Fitz is unable to play.
