    Fitzpatrick YA OR NA

    After all the turnovers do you still play him for the rest of the season? He came back against Houston (which sucks) and then lost 2 in a row!

    He will be just fine and we need him to get some playing time , He will be a great back up and will be a good starter when the time comes ... the rookie needs to read the D and study and Marc is a great partner to study with ... with the right leadership he could be great ??

    Yeah, get him some experience, since we're going to need him when Bulger breaks his shoulder again next year.

    Get rid of Jamie Martin, make this kid the Back-up and bring in anyone as the third stringer.

    Re: Fitzpatrick YA OR NA

    I don't think you bench him if you're at all concerned about his future development and future role on the team. But that said, this coaching staff probably won't be around for that future, so maybe they only care about the current resumé of wins and losses they're building for themselves. It's hard to say. But I think it would be best for Fitzpatrick to stay in there and get time on the field, so I would not bench him.

    I really don't think Martin wants to play anymore. And you don't punish the rest of the team by throwing Smoker out there, so you have to stay with Fitz.

    Re: Fitzpatrick YA OR NA

    Whoops, I voted the wrong way. I thought the question was whether or not to keep him in, but the question is whether or not to bench him. Ouch, I voted yes and meant no. Now I'm just confused. Anyways.

    I say keep the kid in. He's smart enough to learn from his mistakes. Let him get his reps and build on his toolkit while we play this season out.

    What is the down side of playing him. We lose the game. At this point that is not such a big deal. The up side is he gets to play. This is provides him an invaluable opportunity to learn. Is he making mistakes, yes. Will he learn from those mistakes, that is the big question. We will never find out if he is sitting on the bench.

    Rams cant bench fitz. like everyone says.He needs to grow.The kid has the system in his head,and his feet,just not in his accuracy yet.

    Now if Fitz throws another 5 INTs. next week,I think Joe Vitt will probably hit him with the bench.

    Re: Fitzpatrick YA OR NA

    I find it funny how just two weeks ago, Fitz was the GOAT. He was going to leadus to the Super Bowl. He was going to replace Bulger as the starter next season. Now he's 1-2 as the starter and just threw 5 INTs. Has Bulger ever thrown 5 INTs?

    Play the kid. He has to learn and the only way you can learn is by playing.
    The Roman and The Prince. Playmakers until the end.

    Closest he got was four against the Cardinals in 2003.

    I think you may be a bit confused on the term GOAT. Its generally used when someone is held at FAULT...as in SCAPEGOAT. Two weeks ago he was the HERO...NOW hes the GOAT...really just a rookie taking his lumps though. I think he's a keeper despite the steep learning curve.

    GOAT is frequently used as an acronym for Greatest Of All Time. I believe that was the context in which it was being used, hence why it appears in all capital letters.

    Re: Fitzpatrick YA OR NA

    All of you guys say play him because are season is pretty much over but what about the embaressment. He threw 4 interceptions where I didnt even know where the hell he was throwing the ball. We look worse than the Houston Texans out there. I say put a veteran in who will be cautious not to throw as many picks. We would have won yesterday without the picks!
