Winston or Fitzpatrick on Sunday? Experts Take on Bucs’ QB Dilemma

Football fans and experts have their say on who among Ryan Fitzpatrick or Jameis Winston should start for Tampa Bay Buccaneers on September 30.

Head Coach Dirk Koetter and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a problem to solve coming into the fourth week of the National Football League (NFL). Who will be the starting quarterback against the Chicago Bears: the in-form Ryan Fitzpatrick or the recently suspended Buc star Jameis Winston?

Winston returns after serving a three-game suspension handed by the league for sexual misconduct back. Under normal circumstances, the 2015 first overall pick should be an automatic shoo-in into the starting spot, after starting in all but three games in the past three seasons.

However, Fitzpatrick has played lights out in the absence of Winston. In three games, Fitzpatrick completed 70 percent of his passes for 11 touchdowns. Not only that, but the 35-year-old quarterback has also become the player with the most number of consecutive games passing for more than 400 yards.

With a dilemma—albeit a positive one—on the table, football experts and Bucs fans have given their takes on who among the two quarterbacks deserve to start in Chicago.

According to Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson, the team should not disrupt Fitzpatrick’s hot streak and let him continue.

“He’s playing on fire right now. With the way the team is rallying behind him and just playing lights-out football, you have to kind of honor it. You can’t take the hot man out. You go the hot fire right now.”

Meanwhile, Fox 13 sports anchor Kevin O’Donnell believes Fitzpatrick’s performances deserve to be rewarded with another starting game.

On the other hand, Tom Jones of the Tampa Bay Times argued that Winston is a better quarterback overall compared with Fitzpatrick.

“[Winston] still gives you a better chance to win on any given Sunday than Fitzpatrick. Isn’t that the only thing that matters? Which quarterback gives you the best chance to win? Who is the better QB? The answer: Winston.”

The man calling the shots has already decided on which quarterback to start. However, head coach Koetter has not revealed the decision to the public, keeping both the Bears and the Bucs fans guessing for a week.

The answer will be revealed on September 30 as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-1) head to Soldier Field in Illinois to face the Chicago Bears (2-1). NFL fans can place wagers on online sports betting sites that accept customers from the United States, including Bovada and, among others.
