Based on 5 different areas of play (Accuracy, Arm Strength, Decision Making, Mechanics and Mobility), Fitz came out at #43 out of 65 quarterbacks.  Could be worse, the Cardinals had #'s 64 & 65 and the Jets had #63 (Sanchez) and #62 (Tebow).  Clear to see why most people with common sense feel the QB position is an urgency for the Bills.  Would post the link but one of the Administrators don't like Bleacher Report, although the article is written by one of the NFL Draft's lead writers and is pretty thorough.

Read my post, I tried to post the link, but the Marshall Dillon administrators have links to Bleacher Report blocked.  Go to bleacherreport.com.

Yeah, if that's copy/pasted from KOBills, then I'm having the damnedest time trying to interpret his double negative.

What do you mean one of the NFL draft's lead writers? He or she works for NFL.com then? If so then the article should be posted on some other legitimate site.

Of course you could mean one of bleacher report's lead draft writers, in which case it's not legit at all.

Is this true?  Now you can't even post a link?  That's pretty bad.

Maybe if you send these to the Giant, Colt or Raven GMs they'd agree to trade their QBs for Fitz.  Maybe.

You can't just look at stats.  You have to actually watch the games.  Fitzpatrick was absolutely putrid.  Statistics have to be put into context according to the situation.  I'd say that 43rd out of 65 sounds about right.  There should be no debate.  This guy needs to go.

Anyone have a breakdown of Fitz's 4th quarter stats in close games?  Just going to take a shot here, but I'm guessing they aren't all that impressive.  However, the guy can apparently eat a lot of steak in one sitting and he did go to Harvard, allegedly.

The article said Fitz was accurate.  :lol: The complete thought is written like this:

Ryan Fitzpatrick (6'2", 225 pounds, eight seasons) is an accurate, smart quarterback who has a good feel for space but can lack awareness on timing and ball placement.  How can you be both accurate and lack awareness on ball placement?  :doh:

Also said: Fitzpatrick errs on the side of checking down to backs instead of taking chances down the field with wide receivers in 50/50 situations.  I disagree with that. too.

The assessment on Fitz was ....eh.

He's ranked behind several back ups and almost all the starters...sounds about right to me regardless of the source.

His name is Matt Miller:

Bleacher Report's NFL Draft Lead Writer, Miller is also the founder of the NFL draft site New Era Scouting. Matt's work has been featured in Madden 13, on ESPN radio, SiriusXM, NFL.com, SI.com and USA Today as well as utilized by NFL, CFL and AFL teams. Matt was the secondary and special teams coordinator for the three-time league champion Joplin Crusaders of the Central Football League. Matt is also a member of the Pro Football Writers of America.

Good enough for those organizations but not good enough to be able to link to this site?

Ryan Mallet, Chase Daniel and Drew Stanton are ranked ahead of Ryan Fitzpatrick?  How can someone objectively rank "Accuracy, Arm Strength, Decision Making, Mechanics and Mobility" if they don't even start?

Ryan Mallet--who finished 2012 1-4 for 17 yds and a pick (numbers that'd make JaMarcus Russel blush)--shouldn't be ahead of anybody.

Interesting:  The only people who did NOT see this seem to have been the coach and the G.M..  And the usual posters (Fitz apologists).

They will show up, shortly.


The G.M. is still here?  :wacko:
