Extra Points: Fitzpatrick, Romo, Chargers

Let’s take a look at some assorted notes from around the NFL as we wrap up the weekend…

  • After having thrown nine interceptions over the past two weeks, Ryan Fitzpatrick didn’t have a turnover on Sunday. However, the Jets lost again, dropping their record to 1-4. Fortunately for the veteran, coach Todd Bowles said he isn’t planning on making a change at quarterback. However, as Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com notes, the coach did acknowledge that he’ll “examine everything.”
  • Chargers coach Mike McCoy was facing a “critical two-game stretch” entering this weekend, reports Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. A firing doesn’t appear to be imminent following his team’s loss to the Raiders, but a bad showing on Thursday could spell the end of McCoy’s tenure in San Diego. Rapoport adds that some within the organization thought “a change would be made” following last week’s loss to the Saints.
  • It was a tough day for Chargers rookie punter Drew Kaser. His lone punt traveled only 16 yards, and he later fumbled the ball on a potential game-tying field goal. McCoy was non-committal when discussing the position after the game. “We’ll talk about that later on,” he said (via Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune on Twitter).
  • Cowboys owners Jerry Jones said quarterback Tony Romo will get an MRI on Monday to check on the status of his back injury, according to David Helman of DallasCowboys.com (via Twitter). Jones was also emphatic that Romo remains the team’s top quarterback, even after rookie Dak Prescott‘s hot start.

    Yeah Bowles should examine himself and his defensive coordinator. They need to shake things up on the. Packing staff. What a joke.

    Jones is a senile old man if he thinks ROMO jumps right in and starts. Why ruin a good thing?

    Said it months ago…. fitz had a career year last year and should have been let go. This year we are seeing the normal for him. Ha ha jets

    Jones needs to go back to being an owner and hire a GM that knows something about football and running a team. Til then they will never win a championship.

          Yes I know McClay is the GM, however Stephen played a very big role in why Dallas has the players that have right now.

      Jerry only makes some of the decisions and our drafting has vastly improved. Travis Frederick for instance was a Jerry Jones pick so we can all at least thank him for that
