Because despite the fact that we've won I don't think the coaches are as blind as some of the Fitzrimjobbers around here and have seen how putrid his play has been at times. He isn't turning his career around here. He isn't going to be like Rich Gannon. He's not going to be the second coming of Vinny. He's going to continue being the same mediocre, turnover prone, journeyman JAG that he always has been. The sooner people understand that the better off they'll be. This won't play out like the Sanchez debacle where he gets way too many games to turn it around. The second he implodes, that's it. That is of course if Bowles is the smart coach I think he is. If he comes out and looks like hot garbage against the Redskins and we lose, do you really think Bowles is going to keep going with him? Especially when he's played like a flaming bag of sh*t when we win and the guy behind him was blowing him out of the water in TC. Anyone with half a brain should be able to see we're not winning because of Fitzpatrick. We're winning in spite of him
Jesus H. Christ how many people are going to use this stupid argument like it makes any sense. Last year when couldwe started 1-3, our top wide outs were Kerley, Salas, and whatever else we picked out of the trash. We paired that with a defense my grandmother could carve up. Fitz isn't getting benched right now, but there isn't a shot in hell he plays 16 games with the way he's playing.
Last week and today were pretty f*cking awful. Has Geno been awful with real talent and competent coaching? Nope. It's moot because Geno isn't replacing him yet. At the same time, I'm not living in the fairytale land some here have been pretending that Fitz has been remotely good the past two (could even say three) weeks.
He absolutely was named the starter. The offensive coordinator went out of his way to say he expects Geno to start week 1. Look, I want the change to happen, but even I understand the chances of it happening while we're 3-1 are slim to none. I do think Fitzpatrick's leash is pretty short though.
