Five Things More Enjoyable Than The New York Jets-Ryan Fitzpatrick Saga

After researching and analyzing like crazy, here are five things that are more pleasurable than the Ryan Fitzpatrick saga to the New York Jets fan.

It is now Jun. 2 and we are still here.

“Here” is a loaded word in this case. It means OTAs have already begun and the New York Jets and Ryan Fitzpatrick are still dragging on this contract negotiation.

Never has a 33-year old journeyman quarterback experienced such a battle at the desk. Until now. His opponent at this so-called desk is Mike Maccagnan.

Suffice to say, Jets fans have had enough.

Not only is the Jets single-season record holder for touchdown passes (31) battling every bit of the way for a decent deal, but his backup was classically the driving force of the greatest laughingstock story in quite some time. (Thank you for that, IK Enemkpali.)

Every day Fitz is unsigned, Geno is the starter. This not only confuses the hell out of fans, it has divided them to a point of no return.

There are Fitz guys and Geno backers. Each have their points and will fight until the end. The only way this division starts its healing process is if/when Fitz is welcomed back into the fold with a contract.

Ah, the saga continues.

Sagas and the New York Jets are usually closely tied together. This leads us into other thoughts such as what activities would be more fruitful than following this particular saga.

So, here it is. Five things the New York Jets fan would rather do than follow what’s happening between their team and free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick:
