  • I want to ask you whether you think that to A is capable of leading the Dolphins to the playoffs on his own.

  • I do.

  • I do, I think, and don't get me wrong.

  • I love fits magic and I love.

  • But Fitzpatrick was able to do in that game against the Las Vegas Raiders.

  • Remember, he came in against Denver, almost did the same exact thing.

  • Throws an interception late in that game.

  • The Justin Simmons.

  • And so we we have kind of romanticized and fantasized a little bit about what Ryan Fitzpatrick truly is to this teams in the Games that he's inserted not only is to a kind of playing within himself for not playing well, but they're down and they're down because they're playing a better team.

  • Well, I expect Josh Allen and step on digs to be sitting next to me, watching this game or somewhere up in the sweet, or maybe somewhere holding a tablet.

  • I don't believe that those guys are gonna play and let's not forget during the six.

  • And to run that they've been on with two or talk about low as the starting quarterback.

  • He's taken not just the majority of the snaps, but over 85% of the snaps over 90% of the snaps.

  • And so though we enjoy seeing Ryan Fitzpatrick come in the game and throw the football around and move this team and in critical moments and have some fun to talk about, Lola has been the quarterback of this team.

  • He's been the starter, He's been the leader and we have seen him play good football so impressively sometimes that we talk about him being the franchise guy in the future.

  • We say that they got it right with this pick, and so to me, I think to has everything he needs in this situation.

  • I think he's shown he's had this type of metal before in college, and he'll show it again against the Buffalo Bills team that's already clinched their playoff position.

  • I think that, too.

  • I'm not as bullish on to as you are, but I do still think that he wins this game because of the thing you said off the top.

  • Stefon Diggs and Josh Allen, and any of the players of consequence for the Bills shouldn't play any more than a quarter.

  • A couple of drives and be on the sideline and also the coaching staff for the Bills.

  • They should be focused on game planning for their potential opponents the following week.

  • So I think that too, when they go out there and he's gonna face um, some vanilla defense is he's not gonna face the top players.

  • I think that he is good enough to win.

  • That situation also said before we found out this news about Fitzpatrick that I thought Fitzpatrick should start and play this game because I don't think it's even been close.

  • I think Fitzpatrick has been a better quarterback this particular season and I made the comment yesterday that I think that Fitzpatrick is high risk, high reward and that to a is a little bit low risk, low reward.

  • I think I was wrong.

  • I was right about Fitzpatrick.

  • But I think to uh is a little bit more high risk, low reward.

  • I was listening Teoh.

  • I think it's the pro football focus podcast yesterday with Sam and Steve and they were talking a bunch about the turnover worthy plays and that life prompted me to go back and look at two of games and it's not about the amount of fumbles he has that he loses or the amount of interceptions that he throws because that is luck.

  • Whether the DBS can catch or whether the ball bounces toe.

  • One of your linemen are bounces toe.

  • One of their lineman like that is luck.

  • If you look at his turnover worthy, plays this up over 20.

  • So he's been lucky this year, and I went back and watched so many of those games that I came away thinking well, he was not that bad.

  • He's not blowing it for you like he's gonna make a couple plays here and there.

  • And then I saw that he was actually making some mistakes that weren't costing them nearly as much.

  • And I hate that.

  • It's not good and Ryan Fitzpatrick will make those same place.

  • But Ryan Fitzpatrick has been making the high end place.

  • Also, that to a hasn't necessarily be been making consistently.

  • But that doesn't change my feelings about this team.

  • This team is still good, they're well coached, they're headed in the right direction and they're playing a Bills team that frankly, I could care less unless they're going out there trying to pass the stats or something to make some last push for M V P for Josh Allen.

  • Other than that, those guys need to be out there just trying to make sure they don't get.

  • They don't get hurt.

  • They need to be playing Pro Bowl football.

  • That's what they should be playing.

  • Just Pro Bowl football focus on next week.

  • So if the Dolphins can't win in that situation, they don't deserve to go to playoffs.

  • Yeah, no, look, I agree.

  • I think that the Dolphins would be a more dangerous team in the playoffs if they had Fitzpatrick as their quarterback and look the saying of No risk it No biscuit, I'm saying Fitzpatrick takes risk.

  • He's gonna throw the football in the game where he came into the Denver matchup to had thrown for 83 yards passing.

  • So you think about a quarterback.

  • If you don't take risks, you don't throw the ball down the field because you're you're being conservative and you're young, your rookie, um, these air new things that you're seeing for the first time as a starting quarterback in the NFL, a rookie is at a disadvantage, and when you play against the rookie what do they do?

  • They make rookie mistakes.

  • They don't take risks.

  • They don't throw the ball in the coverage because they're afraid to turn the football over.

  • So, yeah, he has 10 touchdown passes in two pics.

  • I get it.

  • But how many?

  • How many more throws downfield?

  • Does he not complete because he doesn't want to take the risk of turning the football over When Fitzpatrick's in the game, Guess what.

  • He's throwing the ball down the field, just like the Vegas game.

  • He's taking risk is getting hit in the face, throwing the ball down the field and helping the team win.

  • So do I think to A.

  • Is the long term solution for the Dolphins?

  • Yeah, I think he's gonna be a great quarterback.

  • He's gotta learn the position.

  • He's gonna be better.

  • But without Fitzpatrick on the sideline, I feel when you watch them going to the sideline, Fitzpatrick sitting down, showing to us some some things on the tablet, he's showing him the coverages.

  • He helps him during the game, so I think it's it's not gonna help to it in this matchup.

  • But I still think the Bills are gonna rest their players Dolphins.

  • We're probably gonna win this game, but moving forward, I think Fitzpatrick gives them the best chance of winning in the playoffs.

  • Guys, Yeah.

  • You also gotta realize this, right?

  • Some of some of the conversation that goes on with these teams.

  • When?

  • When you're playing with Ryan Fitzpatrick and it might be, no risk it no biscuit.

  • But we know that he could turn the football over even though he pushes it when you're inserted, the conversation goes, okay, you're here to protect the ball.

  • You're here to make quick decisions.

  • You're here to make sure that this offense doesn't go wrong because of turnovers because of bad decision making.

  • Because we have a championship defense like that.

  • That's the type of talk that you're given.

  • It's kind of like when I used to go to the store with my mama.

  • You don't want nothing in here.

  • You can't have nothing in here.

  • Don't touch nothing in here.

  • And so then I was paralyzed like that.

  • It was paralysis by analysis like I would see that snicker.

  • I felt like we could afford that snicker because I knew I couldn't ask for that snicker, right?

  • And so I felt.

  • That's a little bit of how to.

  • We're talking about low.

  • I had to play.

  • He tried to had to had to play close to the vest.

  • Brian Fitzpatrick is going up.

  • There is no getting replaced.

  • We could see some of the Arizona Cardinals to talk about Lord or some of that second half.

  • Fourth quarter Kansas City Chiefs to or talk about Laura.

  • Come on, guys.

  • You gotta believe it's 2021.
