No matter what we all think, the dude is a gamer and has that Swag! Iím fine with this move. Cheap deal and heís a veteran that can win with this defense.

I like the move ... still have all our draft capital.. now we need more O help .. WR anyone ??

I'm good with it.

Saves us from Trubisky. Or others that have been thoroughly discussed here.

Draft a youngster, and let the QB room marinate.

Signing a vet for 1 year actually is in line with franchising Scherff. Team is going for it this year. Darby is a blow, but we can draft someone. Not sure what free agency is looking like at CB.

Not in round 1. Need a LB at 19.

Fitzpatrick and Heinicke on the same team sounds like a helluva lot of fun. I am a TH guy, but love what Fitzpatrick does on the field. How does this combo stack up against Haskins and Smith, I think pretty darned well.

Fitz's beard plays QB and costs 8 million less. He wins, going away.

This post deserves some sort of medal. Fitzpatrick is the man, the myth, the legend.

We gotta sign Curtis Samuel.

Fitzmagic throwing to McLaurin, McKissic, Gibson, Thomas, Samuel, + whoever we draft = we're gonna have some real fun games.

sdskinsfan2001 03-16-2021 02:08 AM

Re: Fitzmagic Thread
 
At worst, we know we have a QB with amazing swag that can win games.

And it "only" cost 10 million. For a QB, it's pretty cheap. But mainly, we didn't have to spend any draft picks, and we can let the board come to us. I definitely still hope we pick a QB, but doesn't matter what round now. This opens the draft board a bit imo.

Fitzmagic and Heinicke or Allen plus a rookie, is sufficient for 2021.

If a QB falls to 19, take him. But I'm against trading up now. We have holes that need to be filled. And there will be QB's next year.

Love the move! Gives us some flexibility in the draft and FA. Saves us from drafting a QB at 19. Hopefully weíll add a WR (Samuel), or TE (Henry)

Matthew Berry of ESPN is beyond pumped up for Fitzgerald.

He even low-key snuck in a comment about how dumb the name change is. #keepthegear

It's a video that is part of this article:

Some WFT Twitter folks are mad, what else did they want them to do?? Sign Trubisky? F that. Fitz was the best FA available at QB period

Fitz is an established vet who knows how to play QB in the NFL. He's the perfect Rivera QB.

I see WFT Twitter daily and a lot of them are stupid and are going to be pissy regardless. This was the best possible outcome. If you give up picks for Darnold or pay Trubisky a big FA salary, they are going to be the guy (and theyíre probably going to suck).

With Fitz, heís clearly not a long term solution. Team guy. Crazy smart. 9 teams. Seen it all. Will be able to adjust to a new team with a limited offseason without issue. Gives us the option to still draft a rookie high. If he stinks, Heinicke will get a shot and with Darnold or Trubisky, they probably would be left in regardless of what they did.

I love this. Letís go squad! Now letís go get Curtis Samuel and complete the annex of Washington South.

He's not there to mentor QBs, he's there to win games. He's an improvement from what WFT had at QB last year.

I will say its better Mitch, but still I am a bit disappointed. Not so much its Fitz but the fact we really didn't check off that franchise QB box still. Been spinning wheels on that one for awhile now.

Re: Fitzmagic Thread
 
I'm surprised Miami let him walk. He was clearly better than Tua at this point. I'd much rather go this route over giving away tons of draft picks to get Watson. I would like to see Fitz and Taylor compete for the job. With those two we have guys that are the opposite of Smith. We are going to actually start throwing balls over 5 yards. I like the move.

It will be interesting to see if they draft anyone or just pass on QB and all together.

How were they going to check that box? I think they realize none of the top college guys are going to be there when they pick. Ron isn't going to do some stupid RG3 trade.

It ain't his job to be a mentor. These are grown ass men.

We all would LOVE Watson but that was never going to happen... You would have to deal 3 first and CY or Sweat for him and then what's the point?

Yeah man I agree, there wasn't many options to check that box.

The Watson dreaming got me hoping.

Fitz is WAY better than Haskins and Smith. He's the best passer we've had since Kirk

Fitzpatrick is a grown ass man, you think these 21 year old college qb's who have never had a working job in their life and are introduced to wealth and fame in the span of 6 months don't need mentoring? LMAO.

12 Big Time Throws = Tight window where only the WR can catch it

14 Turnover worthy throws = Throwing into tight coverage where a defender can make a play on it.

It's going to be a roller coaster lol

Fitzpatrick is a student of the Brett Favruh school of quarterbacking, he's high risk and high reward. You either get 4 td's or 4 int's.

Re: Fitzmagic Thread
 
I'm happy with this move.

1. He knows how to win and in his last year possibly, he'll be hungry.
2. Great cost:talent. Value move!
3. Plenty of cap room to build around him.
4. No need to trade up to get a QB. We can still draft one later if we see one we like for the future.
5. As mentioned, it saves us from the likes of Trubisky, Dalton, Mariota, Darnold. There's no "what if we can save this guy's career" angle with Fitz, we know exactly what he is and what we'll get.

MTK 03-16-2021 08:30 AM

Re: Fitzmagic Thread
 
Who are we even expecting him to mentor? Allen? Heinicke? None of these guys are legit long term options as the starter.

Barring someone unexpectedly slipping to us in the draft I think our QB room is set.

Here's what Tua said about him for those worried about his mentoring skills

[QUOTE]Tagovailoa: "Fitz is just a wholesome person. The way he is out on the field is the same way he is off the field. I don't think there's really a distinct change in who he is. I mean, what you see out there is really who Fitz is. He's a coach. He's a mentor on and off the field. But he's also a very, very family-oriented person. Very loving. Very caring for guys. And he's funny, too. He's really funny."[/QUOTE]

Yep, he's had some amazing plays over the last few years. At the very least he'll bring excitement
