Default Re: Ryan Fitzpatrick visiting Texans (signs)

Frerotte: "Look, dude, youíre either gonna run with the receivers or gonna slow it down a little bit. Thatís just how itís going to go."

Gus Frerotte and Mark Bulger jokingly bullied Fitzpatrick on 2006 #Rams. Told him he was running sprints too fast.

Fitzpatrick knew Bill Kollar in St. Louis and lived near him in Arizona. #Texans TE coach John Perry tried to recruit Fitz to Dartmouth.

Another reason #Texans are currently banking on Ryan Fitzpatrick: He had previous working relationships with seven of team's coaches. #NFL

Ryan Fitzpatrick consulted with 15-year, seven-team ex-pro before signing with #Texans. His mentor and close friend, Gus Frerotte. #NFL

Cosell on Fitz: "We're not talking about a top-five starter. ... But O'Brien sees a guy he can mold with how he structures his offense."

Cossel said Bill O'Brien is "one of the best in the business" and could be a perfect fit for Fitzpatrick at this point in QB's career.

If #Texans define what Fitzpatrick is\isn't allowed to do, turnovers will be limited and new system will play to Fitzpatrick's strengths.

Greg Cossel said Ryan Fitzpatrick has potential to excel with Bill O'Brien, George Godsey in a smart offense that establishes "gray areas."

#NFL Films guru Greg Cossel believes #Texans' Ryan Fitzpatrick could be one of league's surprise QBs this season.

Fitzpatrick is an equal opportunity dad. Watched "Frozen" several times with his daughters. #Texans

Ryan Fitzpatrick is big into superhero movies. Also a Legos fans. Saw the Lego movie "multiple times" with his kids. "I'm just a big kid."

#Texans' expected Week 1 starting QB wore an Avengers T-shirt and Transformers hat at same time this week. #Pro

Early positive words about QB Ryan Fitzpatrick from O'Brien. #Texans #NFL

#Texans have discussed with Fitzpatrick how he can limit turnovers this year. Previous systems, background, intelligence good fits for team
