Inside The Bills

For Fitz, fix is simple

Posted by Chris Brown on October 18, 2011 – 10:42 am

A lot has been said about the two interceptions thrown by Ryan Fitzpatrick in last Sunday’s loss to the Giants outside the walls at One Bills Drive. After the game Fitz admitted the passes were underthrown. When asked what he can do to avoid those kinds of throws the Bills quarterback had a straightforward answer.

“Make the throw,” he said. “Part of it was throwing it off my back foot and just not stepping into it getting out there.  I can make that throw off my back foot as well though.  It’s just not making the throw.  Unfortunately it happened twice and it’s something that I have to address, fix and not (let) happen again.”

Head coach Chan Gailey reiterated his faith in Fitzpatrick’s ability to make that kind of pass, and showed no reservations in calling such a play again if the circumstances are right over the last 10 games this season.

“Fitz will make that throw,” said Gailey. “There’s no question in my mind that Fitz will make that throw 20 more times this season.”
