How about we say exactly what happened? Fitzpatrick played very well, even considering New England has a poor pass defense. At the end of the game, he made what was possibly an ill advised throw to a rookie, who made a rookie mistake while there were other options available.
Fred is a running back. Lower the boom. Get down. He isn't a defenseless wr. He his a 200 lb man with a full head of steam. I can make excuses for fitz but he wasn't the problem today. I'm not a fitz lover at all but the guy was good today. 500 yards of offense. Take your fitz hater glasses off, watch a game with objectivity and get back to me
OH yeah, real good TC, HA. I loved how Shannon Sharpe bashed Fitz and the Bills. Fitz can look good when they are down by 21 but if a games close he can never come through and yet the Bills stick with him. Just what I want, a QB that can bring my team back only to throw the game away with a INT or fumble because he can never handle pressure, and then never accepting blame ever after games. There's a reason he was a career back up before coming to Buffalo yet the Bills will continue to go year after year of not making the playoffs because they are too stupid to realize they need a Good QB to win in this league.
never fool your own QB, if it wasn't for fitz we would have never been in the game. talk to the coach about penalties and DW about defence.
I have been very critical of Fitz the past few weeks and we need to address QB in the draft, but its tough for me to put this one on him. He played very well throughout the game. He may (or may not) have been responsible for the last INT, but if Chandler hauls in the TD on the play before- a tough catch I know- we are talking about one of the best performances in a long time, going on the road and winning in NE.
Fitz wasn't Bad, I'm for one am not a huge Fitz supporter but the guy played like we needed him to play for this team. Gailey has too much trust in players, put the ball in Spiller hands. But this lost was honestly the defense fault, they couldn't stop Brady enough, they did stop them when it counted in the 4th but the 1st 3 qtr's, Brady lit them up, they didn't get any takeaways, their just bad. Fitz played well enough, that if the defense was solid we'd probably win that game 31-17.

It's sad that a QB with 2 TDs and 2 Turnovers is considered to have a good game. Shows how bottom of the barrel Fitz is.
Even in Gaileys guru football system Fitz still sucks. You might bring up his completions but you can't stop a guys turnovers only he can do that.

I finished the game thinking that it went better then expected. I honestly thought the game would be over by halftime. I will say that I would have rather seen Fitz throw that ball to Stevie (had about a yard of seperation when the ball was thrown, but had his guy beat) or Spiller (Open on the 5). I can understand not wanting to throw to spiller due to his position and where he was on the field. If he doesn't make that a TD then the game probably ends right there, but IMO on that play he should go for Stevie. That being said, the decision to go to Graham wasn't a bad one. If Graham would have run the correct route, that throw goes right to him and that's game. We talk about this being the best game of the season, and maybe we CAN sal***e this season. When all is said and done though, I think we get two things out of this game: I think this team looks much sharper on offense for the remainder of the year. I also think that this is the opportunity that spiller gets to force chan to make him the feature back. With Fred Injured and a short week, If spiller can have a monster game on Thursday and Buffalo pulls off a win, its spiller time, no looking back.
This might be where we start to see the defense begin to slowly come together to finish the year a bit better as well. We can only hope.
A good game for bad QBs is the ability to lose it at the end of the game this is hilarious.
