Buffalo Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick made an appearance on WGR in Buffalo with Howard Simon, via SportsRadioInterviews.com.  He was asked why they got blown out by the Jets this past Sunday.

“Well I think the obvious answer to that is turnovers,” replied Fitzpatrick. “The three interceptions I threw and the fumble that we had. You are not going to win many games in this league when you make mistakes like that and that’s something that is very disappointing. It’s something I feel like I made an emphasis on this offseason being smarter and making the right decisions. Unfortunately I gave it up three times yesterday, but it’s something we’ll look at and address and just try to get figured out.”

Fitzpatrick claims that getting blown out the way they did, didn’t hurt his confidence and that it’s a wake up call for them.

“You know what it doesn’t. I’m sure that’s hard for people to hear and believe, but I am a steady guy. That’s just who I am. I don’t get too high and I don’t get too low. For me and I know the guys in the locker room we are still excited about the year. We are still confident. We just got a lot of work to do. The game of football especially in the NFL is a very humbling game and when you think you have it tends to humble you. This was a wake up call for us.”

The problem with Fitzpatrick and the Bills offense is that defenses have had it figured out since the middle of last season and they haven’t adjusted.  He also has a bad habit of going to his first read and locking in on his intended target.
