Ryan Fitzpatrick dropped by Tennessee Titans

Ryan Fitzpatrick has thrown his last interception for the Tennessee Titans.

The 31-year-old QB has not only lost his coaches faith in him to Charlie Whitehurst, also 31-years old, but he lost his job to boot.

Fitzpatrick was set to make $500,000 tomorrow as a roster bonus, but he's lost out to Whitehurst who's just been given a new $8million contract nod.

The man known as the "Amish Rifle" isn't the most popular person with coach Ken Whisenhunt and after a fairly poor season stepping in for the injured Jake Locker, his time is up.

However, Whitehurst is probably not the answer that Titans fans are looking for. After a brief experiment in San Diego, Whitehurst had an abysmal completion percentage of just under 55%.

This makes Whitehurst, to put this in context, 25% worse at being a QB than Tim Tebow. Although rumour has it that the Titans might still draft another QB in the 2014 draft in May.

At the combine however, the Titans did make it clear that Locker is their man to lead the franchise, but should injuries reoccur, you'll be able to hear the collective sigh of Tennessee fans from all the way down the Mississippi river.
