Bowles Not Even Considering Benching Fitz

I knew we'd lose it just sucks that statically Fitzpatrick played "well" despite him dinking and dunking all day, while leading a stagnant offense, so this game will buy him more time. So annoying. 

His only TD pass should have been an INT if it wasn't for Marshall wrestling the ball away from the defender.

Fitz sucks but he won't be benched until jets are eliminated from playoffs, even then I'm not sure he will benched. 

So, now? Cuz Fitz starting means we are eliminated from the playoffs from the get-go.

There's no way he's being benched until at least the 7th loss.

This entire team is a mess right now...Benching the QB is unlikely to help anyway.  Once they're out of it you can go with a youth movement and let Petty/Hack play.

Thanks Mangold,Marshall and Decker the rah rah gang.

It'll be fine had Fitzpatrick's "played well" performance led to a win. But it didn't. Not only did we lose but Fitzpatrick did enough to keep his job because of decent looking stats, even though the offense was stagnant most of the game. If we're going to lose I want him to look terrible so we can expedite his benching.  Not lose while he puts up decent stats so a clueless coach can justify still starting him. Very annoying.

It's what makes it worse, I'm having a hard time cheering for these three...especially Decker - every time he gets killed over the middle or has a ball thrown behind him.  He held out of training camp so the Jets would overpay for Fitz.  The thought of that is nauseating to me.

When you have a MORON head coach this is expected he's 1 and done guaranteed he's fired after this season.

he wasn't losing his job, not yet, but it sure puts more pressure on the coach to justify it to some of the players who at this point must be wondering if geno can do worse with 7 points in the 2nd half of the past 3 games combined.

Guys, guys, guys, relax.

We're right where we want to be.  Teams that start 1-4 have a 6% chance of making the playoffs!!!!!!!!!!!

Fitz is a gamer...  If anyone can turn this around he can.  He clearly gives us the best chance.  No question.

Besides Marshall does anyone really have confidence in Fitzpatrick at this point? Just look at the body language on the sidelines. Even Decker looked like he was sick of Fitzpatrick.

it's funny bowles keeps saying this when they can't even get fgs in the 2nd half.  he's becoming a joke, and quickly.

A stark contrast to a year ago. "If the team is winning and the quarterback is playing well there will be no changes". Fair enough because the team was winning and he was playing relatively well. However this year he's still justifying keeping him in because of "chemistry". How are you going to allow Ryan Fitzpatrick of all people to be the one of the reasons you lose your job.

at some point he'll have to bench fitz, and you wonder if he's just biding his time until petty comes back and then says it's all about the future.  it just sounds like canned rhetoric, with mccags master plan unknown.

I understand why he had to say it to start but now it has become a joke.  You can't keep talking about best chance to win when you're getting blown out every week.  If he keeps it up he's going to get fired.  Loyalty to your vets is a good thing but he's going to lose his team, if he already hasn't, with this blind devotion to the worst QB in the league.

it's not just getting blown out.  the only points in the 2nd half of the past 3 games combined they've scored when peake recovered fitz's fumbles.  the offense is stagnant.  decker being out is part of it but that's b/c fitz is too mechanical and locks onto his faves.

I may be wrong. But usually Mac defers to Bowles when it comes to playing time etc. Bowles is giving Fitzpatrick a long rope because he's his guy and he's grown extremely attached and comfortable with Fitzpatrick. Could they be waiting on Petty? Sure, you can't dismiss that theory. But then it leads me to this question. Why is Geno here? They should've just cut him and rolled with Petty as the backup. It makes no logical sense (based on the theory) to keep him if you don't ever intend to play him and then skip over him for the 3rd stringer if the season got lost.

many have speculated he's here b/c petty isn't healthy.  we should find out soon enough at this rate.

1-4 is a death sentence. You have to play Petty and Hackenberg to see who is worth keeping around next year. There is no downside to this. You either determine you have a quarterback for the future or you wind up with a top 3 draft pick.

This is where this franchise has gone wrong for decades. Chasing mediocrity, not knowing when to throw the towel in for the greater good. Can't wait to see where 2-3 extra W's lands us. Maybe another yet another first round cornerback. Because it's not like we've drafted nothing but corners and DL for the past ten years. Yay.

for the first time this regime isn't chasing mediocrity, they're just using fitz until the season is lost.  the one thing they can't do is not use fitz who had 31 tds last year.  they have to use him until they're out of contention.  the vets would mutiny and that would be trouble.  as it is now, the vets are screwing up enough that they can only blame themselves.

They are 1-4. The season is lost. They are out of contention. Mutiny would be fine, gets us closer to the #1 overall. None of the vets are going to be here in 2 years and neither is the coach.
