Buffalo Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick doesn’t have the strongest or most accurate arm in the league. He isn’t the fastest runner and he doesn’t even win that many games. But he’s the only NFL starting quarterback who owns a diploma from Harvard. ”The League” on FX played off of Fitzpatrick’s nerdiness in his brief appearance on the show that will appear tonight (Thursday) at 10:30.
He’s no Peyton Manning (on the field or with the comedic acumen), but Peyton Manning doesn’t have an Ivy League education, a beard or a chance at a top ten draft pick in 2013.
