Ryan Fitzpatrick Quotes
“It’s not really a surprise. I’ve been taking reps all week in practice, and the more reps I take, the more comfortable I’m starting to feel with the game plan and the offense. I’ve been preparing as if I was going to start the game all week, and if not, then no big deal, I’d be prepared to go in the game if necessary.”- Fitzpatrick
“Going in and not being the starter, you kind of get thrown into the situation so you don’t have too much time to think about it, … Once I got that first ball out of my hands, I was fine.”-Fitzpatrick
