Where Fitz is in QB rankings

Posted by Chris Brown on May 25, 2011 – 11:32 am

Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was ranked with the 31 other starting quarterbacks in the NFL by’s Pat Kirwan. Here’s where Fitz ranked against the rest of the league’s signal callers.

Kirwan lumped Fitz in his fourth tier of QBs, which included the likes of Matt Cassel and Jay Cutler (ahead of him in the group) and Josh Freeman and Mark Sanchez (behind him). Here’s what Kirwan wrote about Fitzpatrick.

Ryan Fitzpatrick, Bills: The Bills know what they have in Fitzpatrick and passed on adding a quarterback in the draft. Get him some more protection and targets, and he will improve on his stellar 2010 production.

While what Kirwan had to say was positive, I think what will help Fitzpatrick more than anything in 2011 is being the starter from the get go instead of having to jump into the starting lineup three weeks into the regular season and make things happen without the benefit of offseason reps with the starting offensive unit.
