    They’ve never had a quarterback that throws tons of interceptions?

    “What impact will Colin Kaepernick’s contract have on Seahawks QB Russell Wilson’s future deal?”

    Hopefully, none. Wilson deserves a contract that is true to the headline (lead numbers) and not a puff piece of hot air like Kaepernick’s.

    Fitz is a loser. He can’t handle pressure.

    I get the point in the Bills article, but how many 230 pound running backs are there really, that a safety will play against? Not many starting RB’s are that big, at all.

    As for Ryan Fitzpatrick, if you’re not a Bills fan, you have no place to talk because you have never seen him play as a starter, consistently. He is a damn good QB if they do things the right way with him…which I’m not sure anybody but Chan Gailey really knew how to do. Say what you want, but he’s a hell of an offensive coach…I’d love to have him as Coordinator in Buffalo, CJ Spiller was a beast under Chan Gailey. But that’s all besides the point, back to Fitz…

    He is as smart as they come. He is a Brett Favre-lite type of gun-slinger, and he certainly carries that mentality. He is also a tough S.O.B. and will play injured…as evident by him playing with broken ribs. He can also take off and run if need be, not like Vick, but better than Brady/Manning. He is a team player through and through, and he will help Savage and the other young QB’s on that roster develop. I wish he was still in Buffalo as a mentor. He is also an amazing human being who will do everything within his power to help out and make the Houston community a better place to live and play football. Everyone will fall in love with the guy, for all the right reasons…but he’s not the savior. He won’t lead them to a Super Bowl, and he won’t exactly win games all by himself.

    But, if anyone deserves a fair shake somewhere, from the team and it’s fans…it is definitely Ryan Fitzpatrick…and I never thought I’d say that a few years ago when he first came to Buffalo and ended up taking over the QB job. He’s a top-15/20 QB in the league, no doubt…it all comes down to play calling and his teammates doing their jobs…because he’ll do his! He is a leader, he plays with emotions…and it’s clear to tell he loves the game and has fun.

    Give him a chance, Houston…he’s better than any QB you’ve ever had down there.

    Ps. Again, if you don’t have the all-22, don’t talk about Fitzpatrick’s interceptions.

    If you do have it…go watch and look for how many times WR’s broke off their routes, ran the wrong route, dropped/tipped the ball, or just flat out gave up on the ball/route…I’m looking at you Stevie Johnson!

    It was not all Fitz, all the time…but then again, Favre sure had a lot of interceptions with that gun-slinger mentality too.
