Fitzpatrick chose Dolphins to be starting QB

Ryan Fitzpatrick is planning to be the Miami Dolphins 2019 starting quarterback, and that opportunity to start was enough for him to pick a rebuilding team over other situations with comparable money.

“The way that I view this is there’s 32 of these starting gigs in the NFL, and this is one of them. The opportunity to be one of those 32 guys is an amazing privilege and honor,” Fitzpatrick said. “When they approached me about signing on, I was so excited about the chance to get on the field and play.”

The Dolphins were the last NFL team with a clear starting gig available after they traded Ryan Tannehill to Tennessee and free agent Teddy Bridgewater chose to return to New Orleans over an offer from Miami last week. Fitzpatrick’s other opportunities, he said, were with teams with “penciled-in starters.”

Fitzpatrick, 36, knows he’s on the back end of his career, and that’s what makes this opportunity even sweeter. The idea of the Dolphins rebuilding didn’t seem to bother him, and he said he had several conversations with the Dolphins about the fluidity of their quarterback situation.

Miami is expected to examine drafting its franchise quarterback in the 2019 or 2020 NFL draft. They have the 13th overall pick in next month’s draft and have already been stockpiling picks in 2020 in case they need to trade up to get one of the top-tier talents in that crop, which could include Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa, Oregon’s Justin Herbert and Georgia’s Jake Fromm.

Fitzpatrick didn’t seem to be phased by the possibility that the Dolphins selecting a quarterback high in the 2019 draft could jeopardize his starting job.

“We’ll see what happens. I know that this is the NFL, which means that nothing is promised,” Fitzpatrick said. “There are things that come up and happen all of the time. I just felt like it was a great opportunity for, me and again, I’ve pretty much been in all of the different situations you can think of or imagine.”

“I’m going to come in from Day 1 and act like and be the starting quarterback for this organization until they tell me that I’m not.”

Fitzpatrick has played 14 NFL seasons on seven teams accumulating 126 starts (50-75-1 record). He was most recently with Tampa Bay for the past two seasons. He’s become known for his ‘FitzMagic’ nickname and strong beard, which he promised will be in “full effect” even in the South Florida heat.

In 2018, Fitzpatrick became the first QB in NFL history to throw for 400-plus yards in the first three games of a season. He finished the season completing 67 percent of his passes for 2,366 yards, 17 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in eight games (seven starts). He’s a gunslinger — evident by his NFL-best 9.6 yards per attempt last season — with a history of being hot and cold throughout a season and even within games.

Fitzpatrick said his keys for being a mentor for a young quarterback include “being myself” and “not have an ego.”

  • Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.
