Friday’s PFT Live included a discussion of the remarks from Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken regarding quarterback Jameis Winston‘s habit of trying too hard. Along the way Alex McGough Jersey , I spitballed on the question of how hard it would be for Winston to find another starting job, if for whatever reason the Bucs were to abruptly part ways with Winston (which they won’t).
Here’s the point I made: At this juncture of the offseason, no other team would immediately sign Winston and make him the starter, if he were suddenly available.
MDS disagreed with that proposition via Twitter Andre Reed Jersey , arguing that the Jaguars would instantly supplant Blake Bortles with Winston — and win the Super Bowl.
So we had MDS call the show, and we hashed it out. Listen to what we had to say, and then chime in with your own thoughts in the comments.
Buccaneers backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is no one’s idea of a star quarterback. But with his longevity and consistency, he’s putting himself in some fairly rare company.
Fitzpatrick is slated to start the first three games of this season while Jameis Winston is suspended. Fitzpatrick also started three games last year while Winston was injured. And Fitzpatrick has started at least three games every year since 2008.
If Fitzpatrick does start three games this year Phillip Dorsett Jersey , and all the other quarterbacks who are expected to be starters do as well, then Fitzpatrick will be one of just eight quarterbacks to start at least three games every year from 2008 to 2018. The other seven are Drew Brees, Joe Flacco, Eli Manning Fred Biletnikoff Jersey , Philip Rivers, Aaron Rodgers, Ben Roethlisberger and Matt Ryan.
Fitzpatrick is the least-accomplished of the quarterbacks on that list, but he deserves credit for how long he’s managed to last in the league.
