There's no question, Buffalo Bills coach Chan Gailey would prefer Ryan Fitzpatrick to be more consistent after the quarterback's worst start of the season and, perhaps, career.
Then again, Gailey adds the same concern would apply for the rest of his team in the midst of a six-game skid that's officially knocked Buffalo (5-8) out of playoff contention.
Gailey came to Fitzpatrick's defense Monday, a day after the quarterback was criticized following a 37-10 loss at San Diego. Fitzpatrick went 13 of 34 for 176 yards and two interceptions, the second one returned for a touchdown.
Gailey has no questions - ''none, zero,'' he says - regarding Fitzpatrick's role as the team's long-term starter. The Bills host Miami (4-9) on Sunday.
