Am I the only one? I ALMOST want fitz to bomb in this weekend...

I think at this point, as every thread on the main page can attest to, we know fitz isnt the answer.
But the thing is, theres so much talent on this team right now, that a QB switch could energize this team going into a winnable game next week at home against tennessee, and then into our bye week.
It seems like the kick in the pants this team needs to turn the season around, but it's only going to happen if fitz bombs AGAIN.
if we win in arizona, then come home and beat the titans with fitz under center, we'll be 4-3 heading into the bye, but will anyone REALLY feel confident in our ability to go on the road and beat new england and houston? we know how fitz plays in big games, theres no way we win those.
BUT, if thigpen comes in this week, plays well, then we smoke tennessee at home, suddenly, were 3-4 heading into the bye week, but playing with a hot hand at qb, and our next two opponents have no idea how to game plan for us. do they try to take away the run? what if thigpen has an arm and can beat them deep?
it might be the perfect time to make this switch - because if we COULD get a split from houston/new england with thigpen at qb, the direction of the team is going to seem a lot more solid heading into the (cake) backend of our schedule.

Plus, I assume the roof (it's gonna be 90º) will be closed so no wind to help further flutter those wounded ducks.
I agree with the premise that Fitz is limited and he's not the answer, but you can't seriously think Thigpen would do any better.
There is some merit to the idea that when a backup steps in due to injury or whatever that the other players will step their game up to compensate, but I think in this case with the seemingly fragile collective psyche of the team, as soon as Thigpen reminds everyone why he's even more of a

I realize the sentiment is for the team to bottom out so that some major change can occur to turn this thing around, but I don't see it happening. I don't think they will bottom out during this game, and even if they do, I don't think we will see anything major happening mid-season. We all have to ride this out together.
The other scenario is that they get their act together and beat a few teams. That may be a more believable scenario than the team completely falling apart and forcing Buddy or Chan into making some major coaching or player switch. Of course an injury to Fitz could mandate a switch, but I absolutely do not want to see that happen.

How long does it take for t jax to be ready ? Seems a lil funny. If fitz bombs again vs zona Jackson should get a look. No other qb can be this bad and keep their jobs. 1-8 last year was real. No more excuses
Kelly from the bad news bears is a better qb than fitz. Who cares Fitzs accuracy rating is what a 30 out of 100 ? A move should be made if he looks donkey again vs zona

Considering what the BILLS are paying him, reps or not, he's worth a try.

There are only 16 damn games per year. I enjoy watching them play even if I know they have been crap for a long time.
I wish that all players have a good game and my spirits for the rest of the week will be high!
IF FITZ and the BILLS BOMB, I will be pissed knowing that next week, they will not have resolved anything and will have a losing record.
STOP BEING SO NEGATIVE FOLKS. A WIN TOMORROW and A WIN NEXT WEEK and we are where we should be.
