As a veteran quarterback accustomed to ever-changing roles [url=http://www.authenticsnewyorkjets.com]Jets Elite Jerseys[/url] , there's little Ryan Fitzpatrick hasn't experienced during a 14-year NFL career.
He's been a starter and a backup 鈥?several times.
Now, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are counting on him to help them weather Jameis Winston's three-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy.
And then head back to the bench.
"I thought I had seen and been through it all," said Fitzpatrick, who's entering his second season with his seventh pro team. "But another year, another different situation."
Not that the 35-year-old is complaining.
Fitzpatrick signed with Tampa Bay before last season, knowing coach Dirk Koetter sought him purely as a backup.
"I've learned that you view it as a one-game-at-a-time opportunity. That's just the way it is in this league," Fitzpatrick said.
"In 2015, when I played with the (New York) Jets, I was a backup and ended up (playing) the whole year with the situation there," he added. "In 2016, I was a starter and I ended up getting benched three times. Every year is different. You have to take it game by game and just go from there."
Fitzpatrick [url=http://www.lionscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-sylvester-williams-jersey]Cheap Sylvester Williams Jersey[/url] , who turns 36 in November, entered the NFL as a seventh-round draft pick of the St. Louis Rams in 2005.
In addition to the Bucs and Jets, he's also played for the Cincinnati Bengals, Buffalo Bills, Tennessee Titans and Houston Texans, completing nearly 60 percent of his passes for 26,991 yards, 173 touchdowns and 136 interceptions.
He's one of just four players in NFL history 鈥?along with Vinny Testaverde, Gus Frerotte and Chris Chandler 鈥?to throw TD passes with seven different teams.
Winston, suspended following the league's investigation of an allegation that he groped a female Uber driver during a ride in March 2016, will miss games against New Orleans [url=http://www.chargerscheapshops.com]Chargers Cheap Jerseys[/url] , Philadelphia and Pittsburgh to begin the season.
Fitzpatrick rejected the notion that his role is to "save the season."
"The season hasn't even started yet. ... It's a cliche, but it's one game at a time. You have to look at it that way," Fitzpatrick said. "Not even based off last year, talent-wise, looking at the team we have out here, I'm in the huddle on offense, and it's a pretty exciting huddle to be in as a quarterback looking at some of those guys."
With Winston missing three games and portions of two others because of injury, Fitzpatrick went 2-1 as a starter a year ago. Three seasons ago, he threw for a career-best 3,905 yards and 31 TDs with the Jets.
Koetter noted that Fitzpatrick has 119 career starts and said he has total confidence in the veteran's ability to handle the offense.
"We're fortunate enough to have him," Koetter said. "We saw what he could do when he was our starter last year for three games. There's no reason for us to be afraid of Ryan playing quarterback for us. He's going to play fine."
And Winston [url=http://www.officialoilers.com/authentic-adidas-evan-bouchard-jersey]Authentic Evan Bouchard Jersey[/url] , who's allowed to practice during training camp and play preseason games, intends to do whatever he can help Fitzpatrick and No. 3 quarterback Ryan Griffin, a fifth-year pro who's never taken a snap in a regular-season game.
"As a teammate first, I understand it's about this team and I am going to be there for Fitz as much as I can," Winston, entering his fourth season, said.
"But it's also about getting Ryan (Griffin) ready as well," the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner added. "My influence on this team is going to be positive, and I'm going to be their best support system they have."
鈥?Doug Pederson called for a pass to his quarterback on fourth down, went for 2-point conversions when the chart said otherwise and stuck with the same aggressive approach in the biggest game of his coaching career.The Philadelphia Eagles are Super Bowl champions because they weren’t intimidated and wouldn’t back down just like their coach.“We just wanted to stay aggressive,” Pederson said. “My mentality coming into the game was that I was going to stay aggressive with Nick (Foles) [url=http://www.denverbroncosteamonline.com/josey-jewell-jersey]Authentic Josey Jewell Jersey[/url] , and allow his playmakers to make plays.They made one big play after another in a 41-33 victory over the New England Patriots on Sunday night to win the franchise’s first NFL title since 1960.Pederson was criticized for being too aggressive in his rookie season when the Eagles were 7-9. He didn’t change his philosophy this year, but his players executed the plays.On fourth down from the 1 with 34 seconds left in the first half, running back Corey Clement took a direct snap and pitched to tight end Trey Burton, who threw to Foles for a touchdown that gave Philadelphia a 22-12 lead.“A quarterback going out on a route? I was pumped to go over there and talk to Doug and we agreed to do it,” Foles said. “We worked on it for a long time and executed perfectly. We’ve been working on it for a month.”Burton was recruited as a quarterback out of high school by Florida. He was confident he’d make the right throw and Foles would make the catch on a play called “Philly Special.”“Coach has some guts,” Burton said. “People don’t realize how great of an athlete Nick is. I would’ve thrown to him even if he was covered. He would’ve gone up to get it.”Other teams who failed to topple New England after taking leads in playoff games were too conservative. Atlanta blew a 28-3 lead in last year’s Super Bowl and Jacksonville had a 20-10 fourth-quarter lead in the AFC championship game.But the Eagles never let up the same way they went after Minnesota in a 38-7 win in the NFC title game two weeks ago.“We wanted to be aggressive,” running back Jay Ajayi said. “We understood that this is a team that doesn’t quit, that plays four quarters and we were going to have to be aggressive all game long. We showed that. We wanted to set the tone early and we wanted to keep our foot on the gas.”Pederson’s aggressive nature almost backfired when he went for a 2-point conversion early in the second quarter because Jake Elliott had missed an extra point on the team’s first score. When it failed, the Eagles led 15-3 and that loomed large when they fell behind 33-32 in the fourth quarter.But Pederson didn’t hesitate going for fourth-and-1 from the Eagles 45 with 5:39 left in the game and the team trailing by one point. Foles tossed a 2-yard pass to Zach Ertz and later connected with Ertz on the go-ahead TD pass .“Doug has been aggressive since he came here,” Ertz said. “That’s part of our identity. It’s a big reason we’re here and now we’re champions.”AP NFL website: .
