Ryan Fitzpatrick did his best Patrick Mahomes impersonation at Dolphins training camp, throwing a flawless no-look pass.
It was a huge deal when Patrick Mahomes first mastered the art of the no-look pass, against the Ravens during the 2018 season. He connected with Chiefs wide receiver Demarcus Robinson without even looking to see where Robinson was.
With all of the attention Mahomes got for this throw, naturally, other quarterbacks want to be in on the fun as well. The latest to show off their no-look pass attempt is Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who did his best Mahomes impression at practice on Wednesday morning.
Ryan Fitzpatrick continues to be an ageless wonder.
The 37-year-old out of Harvard is entering his 16th season in the NFL and is going into year two with the Dolphins (his eighth different team), likely serving as their starter over fifth overall pick Tua Tagovailoa.
Fitzpatrick has had a long and prosperous career and is one of those players who really is compelling because you just aren’t sure what you’re going to get out of him. He helped the Dolphins in the back half of the 2019 season and was a big reason for why they upset the Patriots in week 17 of the regular season.
While Mahomes’ no-look pass will always be the best because it was the first and he did it in an actual game, seeing other quarterbacks try to replicate it is entertaining. Maybe Fitzpatrick decides to utilize it during the course of an actual game and can also connect with his receiver down the field for positive yardage.
Would it really shock anyone if Fitzpatrick were able to do that? He has 15 years of NFL experience under his belt and doesn’t appear to be showing any signs of slowing down.
