When the Tennessee Titans signed Ryan Fitzpatrick to back up Jake Locker it seemed like a good idea; a veteran quarterback is almost always better than an untested rookie. Fitzpatrick has been good in the past so maybe the Titans will get that version of him over the next few weeks with Jake Locker on the mend.
And in a way he did not disappoint
On the day he almost accounted for 300 yards of offense. Through the air he was 21-41 for 247 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. What was more impressive was his work on the ground-- six carries for 50 yards and one touchdown (a team high for the day).
Yes, you could say that got his mojo back. After losing his job in Buffalo it had to the suffering, and there is nothing like getting back in the saddle to get it back. It must have worked since after running for a score he broke out the Superman move that Panthers QB Cam Newton is known for (see above).\
If only the Titans ...
