Ryan Fitzpatrick QB TEN Nov 28 '12
Bills head coach Chan Gailey backed off his desires to find a quarterback of the future immediately and added that Ryan Fitzpatrick is "going to be the guy."
"I think we've always said we're looking to develop a quarterback for the future, but I don't think it's the near future," said Gailey. "I think we're talking about Fitz being the guy for us, and as we continue to get better, I think he's going to be the guy. I see us being able to be very productive as an offense with Fitz at quarterback. I've always said that, and I believe that." Gailey and GM Buddy Nix had gone on record this year voicing their desires to draft a quarterback in 2013 and plug him right into the starting lineup. Gailey can say what he wants, but he may not be around for 2013 at this rate. Fitzpatrick ranks No. 18 in QB rating and is averaging a paltry 6.7 YPA this season. He's not the long-term answer.
