Tyler Thigpen is 1-11 in his 12 career NFL starts and has spent the first seven games of this season backing up the Buffalo Bills' new $59 million man, Ryan Fitzpatrick. For a brief moment in Sunday's game, it appeared the Coastal Carolina product was going to get a chance to redeem himself on the field when Fitzpatrick took a vicious hit from Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher and it looked like Thigpen would have to come in the game to replace him. Then, while he was awaiting his entrance, somebody tossed him a ball with which to warm-up with and this metaphor for his NFL career happened: Needless to say, Thigpen did not enter the game. Fitzpatrick walked off the hit and concluded the half, eventually leading Buffalo to a 23-0 victory over the Washington Redskins. Good thing for Thigpen that, unlike a famous former Bills player with similar double-T initials, he was able to find his helmet before trying to get on the field.
