Yes, it can. Fitzpatrick is not a great QB, and we know he's not the future, but he's better than Jackson and Thigpen.

You're making the same argument that gets made for losing teams. People around Buffalo wanted Reich to be the starter over Kelly every time he played a bad game or two. Same thing happens with Miller. The backups are always considered 'not much worse' until they get in, then people remember why they were backups in the first place.

This. Nobody can seriously expect any significant change down there until ownership changes hands.
