DeSean Jackson: Ryan Fitzpatrick should remain starter over Jameis Winston

"You can't take the hot man out, he's on fire right now". With Fitzpatrick starting off the season so well and the Bucs jumping out to a 2-0 start, it seems even more likely that Winston will remain on the bench when he returns.

Head coach Dirk Koetter declined to comment on whether or not Fitzpatrick will start once Winston is eligible to return, adding that the club is exclusively focused on prepping for the Pittsburgh Steelers next Monday night.

Despite his choice of postgame attire, Ryan Fitzpatrick is more NBA Jam than Grand Theft Auto Vice City right now. "We used to play NBA Jam - whoever's got that hot fire shot, you go to keep shooting, man".

It's hard to argue with Jackson.

Public hearing will be held on sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh
Republicans, he says, feel that this is in their grasp and they do not want to do anything to cause things to go off the rails. The Senate has scheduled a public hearing on a sex assault claim against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh for next week.

"It's not my decision but I'm sure Dirk and coach (offensive coordinator Todd) Monken and the guys that make those calls, they'll make sure they stay on fire until that fire is out".

Fitzpatrick belongs in starter territory for a Week 3 home date with the Steelers (who just got torched by Patrick Mahomes). In that game, Fitzy threw three touchdown passes, completed over 63% of his passes and averaged over 10 yards per pass attempt, leading the Rams to a 33-27 overtime victory. He notes that the Bucs will be on a short week when they get ready for Week 4 after playing on Monday night in Week 3. By that time, the FitzMagic may have worn off a little, which would open the door for Winston to reclaim his starting spot.

But Fitzpatrick is giving the Bucs balance that they need, and it's best for the Bucs to continue to ride his wave.
