Fitz focused on improving, rallying team

Posted by Chris Brown on October 8, 2012 – 3:21 pm

Ryan Fitzpatrick is a co-captain on offense, and he along with Fred Jackson intend to take the lead in pulling the Bills out of the funk that they’re in right now after a pair of blowout losses.

“I think it’s important to remember the successes that we’ve had in times like this when we’ve hit a low after two games that have gone very bad for us,” said Fitzpatrick in his weekly appearance on WGR Sportsradio 550. “It’s important to remember the successes that you’ve had and kind of revisit those and figure out what’s wrong now and what was going so well back when things were great.

“As veteran guys that have been around a while we have to lean on guys like me and Stevie and Freddy, guys that have been through both the bad times and the good times and pull everybody out of it and look at the big picture and try to get better.

“It’s the NFL and no one feels sorry for you. That’s the biggest thing. Nobody feels sorry for us that we got blown out two games in a row and we’re sitting at 2-3. So we have to go out and play our best football to go out and win.”

Fitzpatrick said with respect to his own play he realizes his game has to improve. He’d like to hit on more of his downfield throws after missing three more Sunday against the 49ers, and do a better job of getting the ball in his playmakers’ hands. At the same time he’s trying to rally everyone back up knowing a winning performance will help most in turning the team’s psyche around. 

“You have to keep it in perspective because it’s such a long season. All the games are going to be competitive. It is important to keep in perspective that we’ve had two bad games in a row, but we’re 2-3 and have plenty of games left and time to get this thing going,” he said. “But we’ve got to figure it out and figure it out in a hurry.”
