Opinion: Washington’s decision to ride with Ryan Fitzpatrick among NFL offseason’s biggest potential mistakes

On any given Sunday, Ryan Fitzpatrick could throw for 400 yards and four TDs.

On any given Sunday, Ryan Fitzpatrick could throw three interceptions, perhaps with a playoff berth on the line in the regular-season finale. Just ask the New York Jets.

He has a wealth of NFL experience … and a 59-86-1 record as a starter in 16 seasons.

He’s mastered any number of playbooks with his million-dollar Harvard brain … he’s also made any number of ill-fated gambles because his hundred-dollar Harvard arm often can’t cash the checks his brain writes.

Fitzpatrick is personable, popular with teammates and offers signature swag with his Reconstruction-era beard. He’s also a football vagabond who’s never appeared in a playoff game.

In short, he’s a prototypical backup quarterback – which makes the Washington Football Team’s decision to sign him to a one-year, $10 million contract and ride with him as the starter for 2021 all the more confounding.
