Re: Fitzmagic Thread

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.

Even grown ass men can benefit from good mentoring. Not saying you bring someone in just for that reason, but as an extra effect definitely a plus.

Re: Fitzmagic Thread

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.

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.

Re: Fitzmagic Thread

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."

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

Re: Fitzmagic Thread

He might play with a chip on his shoulder too. Look out. He's fearless, as opposed to reckless with the football like Haskins.

It's going to be a fun year.

Though the switch was bound to happen at some point, not many expected it to take place with the team coming off back-to-back blowout wins and riding an unexpected 3-3 record into the bye week. Perhaps no one was more caught off guard by the news than Fitzpatrick himself.

"I was shocked by it. It definitely caught me off guard,” Fitzpatrick said Wednesday. “It was a hard thing for me to hear yesterday, just kind of digesting the news. My heart just hurt all day. It was heartbreaking for me."

"This profession is interesting in that the guy that fired me -- I basically got fired yesterday and then my day of work today consisted of me in Zoom meetings listening to the guy that fired me, and then [was] locked in a spaced-out room with my replacement for four hours today. So there aren't a whole lot of jobs that are like that," Fitzpatrick said.

C'mon.. This whole mentoring stuff is a bunch of bullshit. Fitz wants to play. Not change diapers. I remember Brett Favre saying it wasn't his job to mentor anyone and that always stuck w/ me. Rodgers turned out ok. Is Rodgers sitting around mentoring Jordan Love? No. Yes you can learn from a vet by watching but that is as far as it should go. Heinike and Allen don't need anyone to hold their hands. If a QB needs his hand held and needs to be coddled by a vet then you got the wrong guy.

Re: Fitzmagic Thread

He can still be a teacher to the young guys, football is like any other job.. You can learn from guys without even asking them Q's

Re: Fitzmagic Thread

One thing's for sure this is going to be a fun ass season. Fitz is going to push the ball down the field and let his guys make plays. No dink and dunk BS. Now let's get another WR and TE and we're ready to cook.

Honestly, look at Heinicke's playing style. It really does look a lot like Fitzpatrick's. This could be part of the plan or at least a big benefit to the new guy.
