2016: Ryan Fitzpatrick, New York Jets
In 2016, Ryan Fitzpatrick had all the “Fitzmagic” of one of those cheap boxes of magic tricks you’ll see at an elementary school book fair. The year after going 10-6 as the starting quarterback of the New York Jets, Fitzpatrick was absolutely terrible in 2016, finishing with a 3-8 record in the game he started, throwing 17 interceptions (the second most of any non-rookie quarterback that year), and finishing with the second worst quarterback rating in the NFL (45.4). Not surprisingly, the Jets released him after the season was over. And yet, Fitzpatrick is also still in the NFL, showing you just how starved the league is for quarterbacks who are even halfway competent.
