Jameis Winston offers thoughts on Ryan Fitzpatrick’s performance
Ryan Fitzpatrick has put up passing yardage at an incredible rate for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, surprising everyone except for, apparently, the man he was standing in for.
Jameis Winston said Wednesday that he expected Fitzpatrick to excel, and is happy with the situation as long as the team is winning.
“This is what I expected,” Winston said, via Jenna Laine of ESPN. “Obviously, it’s a tough situation to say but it’s a win-win situation baby. [We’re] here balling hard, [we’re] winning. The community is behind us. I’m happy, everyone is happy, you guys are happy. As long as we [are] happy, [we’re] good.”
Winston might have to get used to being happy with it without being a part of it. Even though his suspension is over, the likelihood is that Fitzpatrick will retain the starting job at least through Week 4.
