New QBs tip hat to Fitz

Buffalo’s newest quarterbacks are doing what they can to master the offensive system as quickly and efficiently as possible. They’ve credited a new teammate for helping them get acclimated, namely Ryan Fitzpatrick.

For Brad Smith, who is coming in cold, he’s not only appreciated the help in the meeting rooms from Fitz, but just observing him on the practice field the past few days and how he handles the offense.

“When I came here, of course he’s very book smart but on the field he is incredibly under control, knows where he is going with the football and knows what everyone is doing,” Smith said. “These last couple of days I have picked up a lot from him.”

Tyler Thigpen already had some prior knowledge of the system, but has appreciated the assistance from Fitz.

“He is helpful,” said Thigpen. “He’s a great guy. I’ve known him for about three years. We played against each other when he was in Cincinnati and the last two years he has been here. He’s a great professional and has been helpful to me since we’ve been here.”
