Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will need more than Fitzmagic to have breakout year

Ryan Fitzpatrick is one of the better backup quarterbacks in the league. He isn’t a bad quarterback and he’s experienced, which makes him perfectly suited to both assist and push a young starter. The New York Jets were smart to trade for him to push Geno Smith. Fitzpatrick is also not a good quarterback. With the 11th most starts at the position since 2008, we know that with...

Bart Scott: Geno Smith should’ve used ATM in players’ lounge
