Gruden on Fitz: 'It's about sustaining'

ESPN analyst Jon Gruden believes Ryan Fitzpatrick still has something to prove as quarterback of the Buffalo Bills.

Speaking in a conference call with reporters Wednesday, Gruden was asked whether he thought the Bills can win with Fitzpatrick under center.

"I think Fitzpatrick showed some things early that were very exciting ... helping the Buffalo Bills come out of the gate in impressive fashion," the former coach and current Monday Night Football broadcaster said. "But in this league at the end of the day it’s about sustaining. Ryan Fitzpatrick has to prove he can start the season and end the season by putting the Buffalo Bills back in the playoffs. ... That remains to be seen. I think he’s got to answer those questions himself."

Gruden also spoke of the 10 quarterback prospects he interviewed for his popular ESPN series "QB Camp," some of whom the Bills have or are scheduled to visit with as part of the pre-draft process.

I'll have more from Gruden in Thursday's Buffalo News.
