Shawne Merriman has always been a very truthful person, and whether or not you want to hear it, Merriman is not afraid to say what is on his mind. Well yesterday, Merriman took a shot at his former teammate. He stated Fitzpatrick is a great quarterback……wait for it…..wait for it…AS A BACK-UP….. OUCH!!!

Ryan Fitzpatrick is a great…Backup QB #NFL
Merriman and Fitzpatrick played together in Buffalo, but while Merriman lacks confidence in FitzMagic, the Houston head coach will stand by his man.
According to Brian Smith of the Houston Chronicle, O’Brien had a one-word answer when asked if Ryan Fitzpatrick would remain the starter.
“Yes,” was the one, which represents half the number of interceptions Fitzpatrick threw in the preseason opener.
