Draft Scout Ryan Fitzpatrick News
10/19/16 - QB Ryan Fitzpatrick lost his starting job to Geno Smith on Wednesday, New York Jets coach Todd Bowles announced. Fitzpatrick has compiled an 11-11 record as the starter over two seasons. He had a career season in 2015 but has thrown a league-high 11 interceptions this year as the offense has managed only three touchdowns in the past four games. On Monday night, Fitzpatrick was 16 of 31 for 174 yards and an interception. In one series against the Cardinals, Smith completed 4 of 6 passes for 31 yards, but he fumbled on a sack (the Jets recovered) and threw an interception.
10/18/16 - QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was pulled in the fourth quarter Monday night, but coach Todd Bowles said Fitzpatrick would remain the team's starter.
Fitzpatrick completed 16 of 31 passes for 174 yards with no touchdowns and one interception that killed a potential scoring drive. It was his league-leading 11th pick of the season. Bowles, however, placed no blame on his veteran quarterback. "(The loss) definitely wasn't Fitz's fault," Bowles said. "I mean, he barely had time to throw, so anybody we'd have put back there would have had a problem, I think."
10/09/16 - QB Ryan Fitzpatrick ended Sunday 25 of 38 for 255 yards as the Jets fell to 1-8 all-time -- 1-10 counting the postseason -- in Pittsburgh.
Fitzpatrick has been haunted all season by interceptions -- nine of them past halftime. He didn't throw a pick in the second half Sunday, but the downside was the Jets were shut out after trailing 14-13 at halftime.
"We didn't score any points in the second half. If I had known that, it would have been tough to think about us winning the football game," Fitzpatrick said. "That's a goal and that is something we need to continue to do well going forward to not give the ball up and to not put our defense in bad situations and take our offensive off the field. That's one of the main things we need to continue to clean up."
10/02/16 - QB Ryan Fitzpatrick won't lose his job despite throwing a total of nine interceptions the past two weeks, coach Todd Bowles said.
Fitzpatrick followed up the worst game of his career -- a six-interception nightmare against the Chiefs on Sept. 24 -- by throwing three interceptions, all in the fourth quarter on Sunday against the Seahawks.
Fitzpatrick was 23 of 41 for 261 yards vs. Seattle. "I'm just fine," he said. "Thank you."
09/26/16 - QB Ryan Fitzpatrick threw six interceptions and the Jets lost two fumbles, handing the Chiefs (2-1) eight turnovers that led to all of their points.
It was the worst interception performance of Fitzpatrick's 12 seasons in the NFL. Coming into Sunday's game, he had thrown just one interception in 69 passing attempts. Against the Chiefs, the Jets quarterback threw six in 44 attempts, including three in the end zone.
"Football in general is a humbling game," Fitzgerald said. "Every week is a different opponent and a different story. I've had some bad ones and what I've been able to do is put it behind me and move on. I'm not going to dwell on them. I made some mistakes in the red zone. I made a mistake on the first third-down interception."
Fitzpatrick finished 20 of 44 for 183 yards.
