This is the best situation I’ve ever had as ‘the guy’
Ryan Fitzpatrick has actually begun 146 profession video games, and he has actually bet 8 groups.
The quarterback this season is the undoubted starter for his ninth group, and Fitzpatrick rates Washington as the very best chance he has actually had in his now 17-year profession.
“This is the best situation I’ve ever been in or the best situation that I’ve ever gone into as the guy,” Fitzpatrick stated throughout a look on the ESPN Daily podcast, through NFL Media. “I signed to be the starter in Houston. I signed to be the starter in Miami, so this is now the third team that I’ve signed to come in and be the starter for. I just feel like the way that I’m playing the last four years, kind of the progression of my career, it doesn’t really make a whole lot of sense that 17 years in, physically, I feel great, mentally, emotionally. I’m in the right spot. I just think I am set up for success this year and really looking forward to it.”
Fitzpatrick, 38, was with the Rams, who prepared him in the seventh round, for 2 years, with the Bengals for 2 years, with the Expenses for 4 years, with the Titans for one year, with the Texans for one year, with the Jets for 2 years, with the Bucs for 2 years and with the Dolphins for 2 years.
He is accepting whatever time he has actually left playing the video game he (often) likes.
“The other major point in my career when there was a transition was after my year in 2016 with the Jets, which was miserable and the first time in my life I hated football and just didn’t want to play anymore,” Fitzpatrick stated. “Since then, it’s almost like I’ve been playing on borrowed time. The last four, I’ve really been able to enjoy. Hopefully everybody has been able to see that for me on the field, from some of the goofy stuff and the interviews. My personality has really come out the last four.”
