He was one of the main reasons that the Jets were in a position to go to the playoffs for the first time in 2010, but in the fourth quarter on Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium, Ryan Fitzpatrick threw three consecutive interceptions to help sink New York’s playoff hopes. And the Jets QB was taking it particularly hard in the minutes after the loss.
“There’s not a whole lot of talking in there right now,” said Fitzpatrick of the Jets locker room during his postgame press conference. “But it’s hard to come up with words just because we really came together as a team this year and I feel like we fought through a lot of adversity. We were on a nice little run there and we just couldn’t finish it off. I stand in front of them and I’m proud to be their teammate, I’m proud to be in that locker room, but also just feel bad for not being able to pull it out.”
For Fitzpatrick it was the best statistical season of his career, but after the loss to the Bills that eliminated their chance to advance to the playoffs, it was hard for the QB to appreciate the success he had.
“It’s the hardest and most difficult end to a season I’ve ever had in terms of how I feel right now and how painful of a loss that was,” Fitzpatrick said. “At this point it doesn’t feel like a very great season.”
