Buffalo Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was booed at Ralph Wilson Stadium Sunday during Buffalo's loss to the Miami Dolphins.
Tuesday, Fitzpatrick took ownership of his poor play, which has contributed to the Bills' seven-game slide.
"Oh I heard them. They were deserved," Fitzpatrick said of the boos. "I wasn’t playing well. We certainly weren’t playing well as an offense. The fans, they’re out there to cheer on our team. But when we aren’t playing well they’re going to let us have it. I thought they were well-deserved at the time."
The Bills started the season 5-2 and had the Buffalo faithful strolling with sky-high confidence, something hard-earned and long-awaited for a fanbase that has watched a subpar product on the field for the last decade.
Fitzpatrick, whose production has plummeted since signing a contract extension, is well-aware of what comes with the quarterback territory.
"I’m human, I listen to it, I hear it," Fitzpatrick said. "It’s not something that bothers me that much. As a quarterback I’ve certainly been booed before and I will be booed again, I’m sure."
