With his more focus on present, Coach Todd Bowles did not mention to announce Monday night that the besieged Ryan Fitzpatrick would always remain the New York Jets’ team beginning quarterback. This is mainly after the team sat for over years during the seven days when they were not playing. This was a risky decision given the brilliance of the team rivals. You can make the Super Bowl odds especially when trying to find out on how the outcome will turn.
“He is healthy, he is been our starter,” said Bowles of Fitzpatrick when he was asked by the media. “I do not see anything wrong that I could have change with the situation right now.” This would definitely makes it one of the easier decisions that the Coach will make when dealing with the existing situations.
The fan base of Jets has been clamoring for very Petty from the start. Fitzpatrick, who is a free agent right after the season, was also a lame duck. However, Bowles is not ready to easily give up on this season when evaluating players for the 2017. This would be something that the team will be looking for especially when dealing with the situations.
“I do not think anything of the argument will ever exists, ” he said when referring to the people who want to know about the future of the player. He continued to say that the player was doing good to improve in form especially when trying to perform better through these years.
Fitzpatrick, who did sign a-year worth $12 million contract this year in July has been having a terrible year especially on his performance. According to his stats, he only has eight touchdown passes with 13 interceptions, which is all tied for the same league lead. This are pretty low stats given that he would be enjoying massive benefits for the club at the end of the season.
Petty blew an opportunity to wrest the job from the Fitzpatrick, after falling to Los Angeles Rams the 9-6 in the first start in NFL. This means that he could improve on his game when looking forward to improve the ratings before the end of the season when playing. He had a late interception, which killed Jets’ from a comeback bid.
Bowles has said that he always plan to easily go back to the Fitzpatrick. This would be an amazing performance given he has been having a terrible performance during the season. “Obviously, you can throw about 10 touchdowns, you need to have to take a close look at it,” he said of the Petty’s chances. “In addition, barring anything outstanding, the Fitz would have been a starter.”
Just last week, the general manager by the same Mike Maccagnan referred to it as a “complicated” decision by saying it is a delicate balance in between trying to have the first win now by evaluating for their future. He also consulted with Bowles, however, the coach had that final say. This is going to be a pretty challenge especially when dealing with the teams that will take part during the championship.
