Fitz Would Already Be Gone
Let’s keep it simple: If the New York Jets had great faith in Geno Smith as the starting quarterback for 2016, Ryan Fitzpatrick would have already been gone.
Fitz would have already been communicated to about this notion and he would have signed elsewhere.
Would he have received the money he desires? Absolutely not. But he would have signed elsewhere to make sure he had a job for the upcoming season.
Don’t be so simple minded as to think just because he’s not signed means the Jets don’t care if he’s on the roster.
Of course they do.
If they didn’t care, they would have moved on and said “get lost” by now. They would have said, “We have Geno Smith and we trust him with the starting QB position for 2016.”
Guess what? They haven’t said that yet and the dance between Mike Maccagnan and Jimmy Sexton continues. Do you know why this is the case? It’s because both parties absolutely adore each other.
Fitz needs the Jets (as he finally found a home) and the Jets need Fitz (as he can hold the bag until one of the youngsters mature). They love each other. They’re only going through a messy fight like all loved-based relationships go through at times.
Through it all, though, in the back of their minds, they know the truth. They know they’re destined for each other.
Just look at the real evidence. It’s obvious.
