DeSean Jackson: Ryan Fitzpatrick should remain starter over Jameis Winston

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback was sued in civil court on Tuesday by Kate, the Arizona Uber driver who alleges that Winston grabbed her between the legs at the drive-through of a Mexican restaurant, according to a report from the Tampa Bay Times. But there is going to be nothing easy about going into hostile territory and taking on one of the hottest teams in the league. The veteran wideout believes the Bucs should stick with Fitzpatrick as their starter even when Winston returns. He's completing an absurd 78 percent of his passes and has produced nine touchdowns, eight through the air.

Despite his choice of postgame attire, Ryan Fitzpatrick is more NBA Jam than Grand Theft Auto Vice City right now.

"He's playing on fire right now", Jackson said on NFL Network, per a transcription by Pro Football Talk's Michael David Smith.

"You can't take the hot man out, he's on fire right now". We used to play NBA Jam - whoever's got that hot fire shot, you got to keep shooting, man.

"It's not my decision but I'm sure Dirk and coach (offensive coordinator Todd) Monken and the guys that make those calls, they'll make sure they stay on fire until that fire is out". Our team's doing something that not many thought they could. He now leads the team with 275 yards and three touchdowns.

Fitzpatrick appears to be elated about the team's start, as the 35-year-old quarterback went full throwback with his postgame press conference attire - and did so in style. We're going to stay on fire. "Everything else is in the future because it could all change like that".
