Ryan Fitzpatrick and his extremely short shorts deserve a starting job somewhere

November 05, 2020

Just a few weeks ago, after being benched for Tua Tagovailoa, Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick delivered some of the more depressing "I got benched" quotes we'd ever heard. What made them so hard to watch was that Fitzpatrick was not only having a good season pre-benching, he appeared to be having the most fun out of any player in the league. 

Fitzpatrick remains on the roster, and seems to be accepting the challenge of the mentor role to Tagovailoa. He also has not lost his sense of humor, showing up to practice on Wednesday in extremely short shorts:  

Apparently, FitzMagic's booty shorts are a tribute to former teammate Isaiah Ford, who was traded to the New England Patriots this week: 

Pants weren't the only thing Fitz cut off either. Sadly, the beard has been hacksawed too: 

Nothing lasts forever, except Ryan Fitzpatrick's time in the NFL.
