If Fitz goes, so does Steve Johnson's success?
Before you get all upset over this notion realize there is precedent for this type of thing. Many on this board were completely sold Lee Evans was a Elite receiver and just needed a "real" QB to demonstrate that. Most of those people now believe the same about Steve, he is Elite but needs a "real" QB to demonstrate that. Lee went to a team with a real QB and one year later he is no longer in the league. Lee's success was tied to his relationship with a bad QB, Losman. Similarly Steve has developed a good on field working relationship with Fitz. Fitz throws to him often knowing Steve will be where he is supposed to be. Take Steve's success against Revis, most "real" QB's won't even make the throws Fitz is willing to make against him. I am not saying Steve and Lee are the same type of receivers, they are not at all but that does not mean they cant have a symbiotic relationship even if Fitz is a bad QB. Steve does not have any kind of speed, he is shifty gets open for a short period of time and Fitz has the confidence in him to throw it there. It is obvious even Steve believes he will have less success without Fitz based on him resigning with the Bills and his words. He obviously believes his success is tied directly to Fitz.
I expect Mario Williams to get 100 sacks, $1,000,000 per sack, seems reasonable to me.
There is only one position that you should dole out $100,000,000 for and it starts with a Q. Just my opinion...
Show me a 2:1 TD to INT Ratio or show me a new QB
