New York Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is not worried what people think about him. When he was asked about his comments this weekend saying he felt the organization had lost hope in him, he continued to tell Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News, he don’t care what media says.
This is why I love me some Ryan Fitzpatrick:
“I don’t care,” Fitzpatrick told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. “I don’t care what is being written about me. I don’t care what other people think about me. I really don’t. When I’m done with football, I go home to my family. We’re going to carve pumpkins tonight. I’m just going to be Dad. I’m going to be like a normal person.”
“There’s a lot of people along the way that have not believed in me or given up on me,” he said Wednesday. “I’ve been through it. I always come back to self-belief. I believe I can do it. I believe in myself. That is what that whole interview was.
“Maybe seven years ago, I would care about what was said about me. I’ve accomplished more than anybody ever thought I was going to. But I’m not satisfied with the way the season has gone this year. I’m not satisfied with the way that I’ve played this year.”
“When we lose, my shoulders are big enough,” he said. “Blame me for everything. That’s fine. I’ll take that. You don’t need to blame a young rookie receiver that can’t handle it. I am accountable for all my actions, good or bad.”
