"I don't know why Fitzpatrick can't shave, honestly. Why does he need that beard?" David asked. "That beard really bothers me. I don't know what this quarterback looks like. Who am I rooting for? Imagine Mickey Mantle with a full beard like that. It would have changed my entire childhood."
Fitzpatrick was asked about David's opinion after practice on Tuesday.
"Well, I've heard that he's a big Jet fan," Fitzpatrick said. "But I'm probably a bigger Seinfeld fan, so I don't take that lightly. I will take it into consideration, Larry. And I respect you very much."
David also said during the Patrick interview that he could be an NFL offensive coordinator, doubling down on comments he originally made last year on The Howard Stern Show. What did Fitzpatrick have to say about that?
"Pre-tty, pre-tty good," Fitzpatrick said, mimicking David's famous Curb catchphrase.
