Dolphins will stick with Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback

The Jets return to South Florida, giving the Dolphins a fairly reasonable chance to actually win a game. As they try to do so, they’ll stick with quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Coach Brian Flores told reporters on Wednesday that Fitzpatrick remains the starter, because Flores believes Fitzpatrick gives the team the best chance to win.

Fitzpatrick spent two years with the Jets, starting 27 games from 2015 to 2016. In 2017, he led Tampa Bay to a 15-10 win over the Jets.

This year, Fitzpatrick has started four games, throwing five touchdown passes and seven interceptions and generating a passer rating of 70.0.

The 1-6 Jets are favored to beat the 0-7 Dolphins by 5.5 points. The loser will be mathematically eliminated from winning the NFC East, if the Patriots beat the Ravens.

  1. Another new low in the world of Josh Allen… Fitz gives the 0-7 Dolphins the best chance to win. Let that sink in for a minute. Just how bad must JA be??? Ouch

  2. I had them mathematically eliminated from winning the NFC East back in September. Also had them mathematically eliminated from the NFC North, NFC South, NFC West as well as the AFC North, AFC South and AFC West. Math can be tricky, but this was the easiest math ever!!

  3. “Another new low in the world of Josh Allen.”

    I see your “Josh Allen” and raise you a “Josh Rosen”.

  4. But Brian you’re not trying to win! You’re trying to get the number 1 draft pick! Also, why wouldn’t you just let Josh Allen play? He needs the playing time more than Fitzpatrick.

  5. Josh Rosen is doomed to become the next Fitzpatrick – journeyman moving from team to team each year. Too bad.

  6. Listen. None of this matters. What matters is making sure Miami loses to this awful Jets team. Stay away from our Tua! Go Dolphins! Lose this one!

  7. Fitz has had a strange career. I’ve never seen a journeyman QB given so many opportunities to start. He plays just well enough to tease you into thinking he is a viable starter and then 4-5 games later you’re like oh “that’s right! There’s a reason he hasn’t stuck as a starter.”

  8. The real Fitzmagic is how he manages to get 8 or 9 million a year, year after year. He’s gotta be close to 100 mil in career earnings by now.

  9. But wait, how is Josh going to make all those teams “pay” now for passing on him in the draft?

  10. Rosen is making them pay: cardinals sucked so bad they got to draft Murray, and now the dolphins will rinse and repeat for the #1 pick; the browns passed and will just be mediocre for years with Mayfield, jets and bills the same; at least the teams that have Rosen will be so bad they can get the #1 pick and get a better QB.
