Fitzpatrick- 2016 Season Worst of My Career


Recommended Posts

Read article where he said this - yeah you were a total turd that year - I hated you too - after you choked like a baby trying to swallow a bowling ball in last game of 2015 and continued to play like the loser you’ve always been in 16 I’m surprised you have the guts to even bring it up. This guy is so bad when it counts……….

said he was miserable as a jet that year - maybe if he didn’t play down to his worst performance level it would have been better - i think this guy is a likable dog - big floppy beard etc but he’s a nobody in the world of the nfl - hangs around - wins a few games here and there and then sh*ts the bed every time it matters

Our TEAM was a total turd that year, with a Head Coach (Bowles) on his was to 5, 5, and 4 win seasons, and riddled with injuries to key players and with key offensive players who, it turns out, had had their last gasp in the NFL in 2015.  Like both Marshall and Decker at WR, neither of whom ever had productive seasons after that 2015 campaign.

Decker washed out of the league after a forgettable meh season in Tenn. in 2017, Marshall had a total of 29 catches over two horrible years in 2017 and 2018 with the Giants and Seahawks.

People love to say Decker and Marshall 'made' Fitz in 2015.  The truth is Fitz squeezed the last drops of decent pro-level play from two clearly declining veterans WR's on their way out, both of whom were either hurt or utterly worthless that next year (2016) and both of whom were out of the NFL shortly thereafter. 

Fans may not get it, but the league and it's GM's did.  Bowles is back as a D-Co where he was great.  Decker and Marshall are long gone.  Fitz is, somehow, a starting QB for a 2020 playoff team, lol.  Man that must burn some asses round here, lol.

We should all hope our new Golden Boy can throw for 3,900 yards and 31 or more TD's sometime soon, so we can finally put the Fitz Era (our last decent QB season) behind us for good.

To be fair, (LOL) you probably should have pointed out that he also said that 15 was one of the most fun years of his career.

No player has fun when you expect a good year, and the season goes to poop.

Not picking Mahomes or Watson was their downfall. Hell if Fitz stayed after 2016 Bowles may still be here. He was significantly better than Mccown and Darnold.

Fitzpatrick is and always will be a below average QB who should be grateful to have lasted this long in the NFL and even more thankful that Mac caved and gave him that ridiculous contract He is horrible

I hated the Ryan Fitzpatrick era here. We needed a real QB and management decided Fitzpatrick was the answer. The journeyman loser who has never won a big game in his career.

Grateful to who? If you last this long you’ve earned it. Why you throwing shade at an overachiever? These guys are the good ones

Overachiever. He was the kiss of death For any starter Any team he went to the starter inevitably got hurt and he would come in and be mediocre at best. Luckiest QB ever to be at right place every dam time. He is horrible

Was visiting my son in Des Moines that weekend.  We drove down 3 hours to KC on Sunday morning for the game and another 3 hours back after the game.   Fitz through one pick for each hour of driving.  

Also went to a game in KC in 2005.  Chad fumbled 6 times and Jay FIedler once, but they only lost two of those.  So the Fitz game was worse.

I have no interest in ever setting foot in Arrowhead again.

Nothing supports this argument, Fitz has been terrible everywhere before the Jets and after both Marshall and Decker were actually good players at one point.

2016 was a garbage year for the entire team. Sure, it was a mistake for Mac to think Fitz was going to have a glowing year like 2015 but you really can't blame Fitz for trying to make money off a good performance unless you feel the same way about every other player trying to get paid according to their performance.

What was the alternative in 2016? Another Geno year? Give Petty the job? Try Hackenburg? Draft one of the clunker QBs from the 2016 draft in the first round? Was there another decent journeyman available? Tank after a 10-6 season? I suspect Mac thought he would get another 10-6 year out of Fitz but in retrospect I don't know that a better GM sitting in that seat had many other great options. 2016 could have easily been a bridge year to draft Mahomes or Watson in 2017.

I suggest you go to GamePass, and watch Late Nate Peterman's first starting performance for the Bills vs. the Chargers in November of '17.

They had no one else to play QB. The knew Petty was garbage by that point. Hackenberg lol.  It's not as if resigning him did any long term damage. Mac drafting two bums forced his hand back to Fitz, who's still a starting QB anyways.

They idiotically committed to a journeyman QB not under contract and got squeezed. They had plenty of time to look in non-Petty directions and chose not to. I hand it to Fitz, understanding that he was smarter than anyone at Jets One Drive, he exposed their stupidity. He also kinda sucked. 
 
Very happy with JD & Co.  

Squeezed how? Never understood this. It was a one year deal, not a commitment. The Jets screwed themselves/exposed their own stupidity by taking bum QB's in Petty and Hackeberg. They really didnt have a choice and he was the best one available coming off a good year while having rapport with Marshall and Decker.

I’m not looking it up, but it was a stupid deal for that one year that also included dead money into the following year for a season of ****y QB play.  
 
Yes, the Jets were stupid. That’s what I said.

He/his agent knew the team had no better alternative and the next best option was considerably worse than a QB who led the team in franchise records the year prior. He nabbed $12 million for a single year in 2016. (In 2017 he was paid $3 million.) The Jets paid him $342k less than Russell Wilson in 2016. If you don't consider that squeezed then what would you call that?

Every other year is Fitztragic's worst year.  That is why he has bounced around the league like a super ball.  I don't like him at all. A QB who has been in the NFL for 15 years and has never ever won a big game in his life.  Watching him play QB is like watching a train wreck in slow motion. You just know the crash is coming.  He has a weak arm and takes unnecessary risks.  He was carried in 2015 by Decker and Marshall, who were both incredible and  won many 50/50 balls and bailed him out of many mistakes that he makes over and over.  It was clear that 2015 was an outlier and that he would never ever repeat that in 2016.  He didn't deserve the contract he got in 2016 because he is not a starting caliber QB.  He looks good when compared to struggling rookies, but teams rightfully replace him with the younger QBs who have potential to get better and win a big game now and then instead of never.  There was no doubt he would be replaced at each of his previous 8 stops. Washington made a mistake in trusting a young and rising team with this choke artist.  He is one of my least favorite NFL players and was before 2015.  And his beard is just absurd.  The Civil War ended 160 years ago.

My least favorite Jets QB of All-Time

In 2015 not only did he crap the bed week 17 vs. Buffalo but he tossed 3 4th quarter interceptions too. 

What really bothered me about sh*tztragic was the following offseason. Coming off of a week 17 crap performance he acted like an offseason diva. He pretended to be Joe Namath or something. He made the Jets guarantee him fully guarantee him $12,000,000 or else he would've pulled a LeBron James and "took his talents elsewhere". 

And how did he thank us for our $12,000,000? 

2016: 3-8 overall, 56.6%, only 193 passing yards per game, 12 TDs/17 INTs and an atrocious QB Rating of only 69.6. 

He got paid and completely quit the following season. 

He's nothing more than a 59-86 career loser who's been in the league for 17 years with a combined 0 playoff starts (despite 9 different teams); he absolutely STINKS!

The issue with Fitz, and why I despise him so much, is that its entirely his own fault why he isnt a better player.  And yea I clearly realize hes made millions and has had some success.

This is a guy who maintains a "gun slinger" mentality like he is some sort of elite player and failed to ever embrace the nuances of actually playing the position and managing the game.  Yea 2015 was fun, but in the end he threw a pick just like he always has because he couldnt learn to just play the position.  And then on top of it he gets salty when people criticize him for the mistakes.

Just a really unlikeable player.

I know you despise him too but one minor correction. 

He's had 0 success. 

9 different teams?

17 years later? 

Still 0 playoff games? 

That's pathetic.

My favourite player in the league.

Love how he rustles the jimmies of so many here. Amazing player to watch. Box office.

Same here. I love Fitzy. I even liked him before he was a Jet. I don't understand the hatred people have for him. He's never been a superstar, but he's a decent QB. 

2015 was an enjoyable year, largely because of him.

So, just like all the other still employed GMs out there: DON’T give Fitzmagic the Tragic a 2nd contract?

He was a one-read, stare-down QB who threw something on the order 18 dropped interceptions (on top of the 15 that weren't dropped) in 15 games (against a particularly favorable schedule at that, which even included only favorable weather).

While of course not an official stat, they still happened, and it's foolishness to expect that type of unlikely luck to be repeatable. 

That off-season was a painful memory of one stupid, avoidable decision after the other (the handling and re-signing of Fitz was just the most clownshoes of the lot). Also a number of us called them out, one after the next, as they were happening; so it's not remotely hindsight talk.
