Well, even when Ryan Fitzpatrick isn’t lighting up the scoreboard on a Sunday he is still making news.

According to Jay Glazer of FOX on Sunday morning’s pregame show, the Buccaneers plan to stick with Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback even after the return of Jameis Winston following the quarterback’s suspension.

Glazer said that Fitz will remain the starter, but will be replaced should he do something “drastically bad” on the field.

Many saw this coming with the hot start that Fitzmagic is having, but that “drastcially bad” something could come as early as Monday night. If Fitz were to go out on national television and put up a stinker with multiple turnovers and the Bucs lose to Pittsburgh, we could theoretically see Winston week four in Chicago.

However, if Fitz keeps clipping along at this rate, we could see him be the season long starter.
