    I have no confidence in the Canadian passing crutch who is basically an athletic Ryan Lindley... and why was he even on the roster for his running ability when we used him like once is baffling

    Fitzpatrick, someone who can win games because if something happen with kyler and with the mediocre we used to have for depth the season is gone

    I would think we would get a guy a little mobile that can keep the base play calling.

    Fitzpatrick despite his age is still really mobile.

    Cheaper option should be Tyrod Taylor.

    Tyrod Taylor or RGIII make the most sense. Both of them have a similar play style to Kyler, and neither of them are getting a starting job this year. They'll take it.

    Golden, Gardeck if it’s short yardage.

    I’m intrigued by RG 3. He’s a damn good back up. The only problem is he’s horrifically injury prone. Stanton was infuriating because you knew if he had to play more than a game, he’d be hurt and we’d be on to the 3rd stringer.

    I heard Fitzpatrick was retiring.

    Tyrod Taylor would be a good choice.

    Injuries are a given.

    If we don't improve our situation behind Kyler at backup QB, we are a shipwreck waiting to happen.

    Have not heard that Fitzpatrick was retiring. Was recently mentioned as possibly in the mix for a starting quarterback job for a team that is looking for a stopgap!

    I can't believe the Cardinals went last season with Chris Streveler as their backup quarterback. It still makes no sense. He was a situational quarterback at best.

    So here it is regarding Fitzpatrick:

    Adam Schefter
    @AdamSchefter


    Former Dolphins’ QB Ryan Fitzpatrick reached agreement with the Washington Football Team on a one-year deal worth $10 million that could grow to $12 million with incentives, per source. Fitzpatrick is expected to head to camp as the starter, with competition from Taylor Heinicke.

    This makes me sick. I loathe the redskins.
    Fitzpatrick is a guy I’ve always rooted for. All good things must come to an end, I guess.
