another shot as the New York Jets starting

Yonca Toptan Toptan Alışveriş

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Geno Smith is getting another shot as the New York Jets starting quarterback.The team announced Wednesday that Smith, benched the last three games in favour of Michael Vick, will be under centre against the Miami Dolphins on Monday night.The best thing for this team right now is to play Geno Smith, coach Rex Ryan said.Ryan met with both quarterbacks in the morning and informed them of the decision. The Jets (2-9) want to get another look at Smith to make an evaluation on the quarterback, along with other young players, heading into the off-season.Understand that everybody is on board with this decision, Ryan said. We purposely put Geno back, let him observe. Now is the opportunity for him to step back in and lets see how it goes. I, for one, am excited to watch him. He has my support on this, and thats what Ill say about it.It was initially believed by some that Ryan was leaning toward Vick, but he insisted the decision was 100 per cent our decision, referring to the entire team. When asked if general manager John Idzik might have swayed him away from Vick, Ryan was defiant.One hundred per cent, no, he did not, the coach said.Smith, in his second season, last started on Oct. 26 in a 43-23 loss to Buffalo in which he threw interceptions on three consecutive possessions and was benched. Vick provided a spark to the offence in his first two starts, but struggled against the Bills on Monday night before being replaced by Smith in the 38-3 loss at Detroits Ford Field.I always thought that I would (start again), I dont see why not, Smith said. I never knew when or where, but Im glad its now and Im glad I have the opportunity and Im ready to go out there and really show what Ive got.The move caught some Jets players off guard.I just didnt see us flip-flopping, right guard Willie Colon said. I just figured Vick was going to kind of ride us out.Running back Chris Johnson didnt know of the teams decision until he saw Smith getting snaps with the starters at practice.Yeah, it was a surprise, Johnson said. Ive never really seen it go like: starter getting benched, then the backup coming in, and then a couple games, then the original starter comes back.Smith has thrown for 1,459 yards with seven touchdowns and 10 interceptions this season while putting his future as a starter with the franchise in doubt. He was drafted in the second round out of West Virginia last year and started every game as a rookie after Mark Sanchez went down with a shoulder injury in the preseason.Smith had an up-and-down rookie season, but finished with a strong final month during which the Jets won three of their last four games to finish 8-8 and save Ryans job.The Jets signed Vick in the off-season to a one-year deal to give them an experienced backup, something they lacked last season, who could also serve as a mentor to Smith while also pushing him in training camp. Smith got off to another rocky start by turning the ball over at least once in each of the first six games.Now its about production and doing a lot of things that I was drafted to do, Smith said. They brought me here to make plays and take care of the football, so Ive got to do that.He had a solid, turnover-free performance in a 27-25 loss to New England, but followed it up with the dreadful game against Buffalo a month ago.As a competitor, you always want to be out there, Smith said. You never want to feel like you cant be a part of the solution.The 34-year-old Vick threw for 404 yards and three TDs and an interception in his three starts, helping end an eight-game skid with a 20-13 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Nov. 9.Thats not for me to say whether I should be benched or not, Vick said. I dont look at it as being benched. I look at it as Geno getting another opportunity.Vick has mostly said all the right things about the quarterback situation since signing with the Jets, and he took the high road again after the teams decision. He felt he mostly played well in his three starts, but didnt ask why Smith was getting the call again.Thats my little brother, Vick said. I want him to do well. I want him to succeed and excel. I know hes got it in him. Its great to see him get another opportunity. I know he got hurt and some things that happened. He had a sour taste in his mouth, so now he gets a chance to go out and make it right.___AP NFL website: and Antonio Gates Womens Jersey . 1 goaltender tonight when they conclude a four-game road trip versus the Winnipeg Jets.

With the team he supported as a child on the verge of reaching the Champions League semifinals for the first time in 19 years, Ba instead scored the goal that knocked them out. VANCOUVER -- John Tortorella was shocked by what he had witnessed, but he wasnt the only one. The Vancouver coach and an announced sellout crowd of 18,910 watched in dismay as the Canucks lost 7-4 to the New York Islanders on Monday night by squandering a 3-0 lead in the third period. "This is a kick in the teeth," said Tortorella "Its certainly going to take a little bit more than normal coachs speak (to get) by this game." Matt Martins goal at 10:04 of the third proved to be the winner as the Islanders rallied with seven third period goals, including four in the first 6:22. New Yorks first three goals came on power plays and its fourth came one second after another Vancouver penalty had expired. "A 3-0 deficit going into the third period, we were pretty deflated," said Martin. "The coaches came in and made it clear we didnt do enough in the second period and we didnt play for one another, and if we didnt pick up our game in the third period theyd have no problem taking guys out of the lineup and not dressing everybody." Josh Bailey, Ryan Strome, Calvin de Haan, Frans Nielsen, Anders Lee and Cal Clutterbuck also scored for the Islanders (25-33-9). "Ive never been in a game like that as far as seeing a period like that, because we were playing so well going in," said Tortorella. "In between periods, we talked about the things we needed to do to nail that game down, but we really put ourselves in a jam with some bad penalties and they gained momentum a" His voice trailed off and then he continued: "What could happen, happened. And, its been going on for a little while here, since eternity. But, somehow, weve gotta try and put it behind us." Chris Higgins, Henrik Sedin, Ryan Kesler and Chris Tanev scored for the Canucks (29-28-10), who suffered their 12th loss in the past 14 games. "We just took some bad penalties and they had some seeing-eye shots that went in and got the momentum," said Higgins. "We battled back to tie it up and they scored that fifth goal." Rookie Nicklas Jensen was in the box for New Yorks first two goals. The first penalty, a slaashing infraction late in the second period, prevented a goal.dddddddddddd But the second one was a holding call in the offensive zone. The penalties spoiled what could have been an extremely memorable night for Jensen as he recorded his first NHL point with an assist on Sedins goal. New York converted four of eight man-advantage opportunities while Vancouver was good on two of four. Islanders goaltender Evgeni Nabokov made 20 saves for the win as Eddie Lack stopped 21 shots for the Canucks. "Its was a very weird third period," said Lack. "Its not only the (penalty killers) fault, its my fault, too. I need to stop the puck and I didnt tonight." After Bailey put the Isles on the scoreboard 1:13 into the third, Strome, on a five-on-three, and de Haan scored seconds apart to create a 3-3 tie. Nielsen put the Islanders ahead 4-3 just under three minutes later as he put in a shot from the wing. The crowd let out a huge roar of relief after Tanev brought the Canucks even at 9:54 of the third. Martin, however, gave the Isles the lead only 10 seconds later on a backhand from the slot, and Lee padded New Yorks lead just a minute and 44 seconds later. A disappointed Kesler said the Canucks have to start playing like they still want to make the playoffs. "Being up 3-0 and the blowing it like that, its embarrassing," he said. Notes-Alex Burrows drew an assist on Keslers goal, earning his 300th NHL career point. a The Islanders had seven rookies in their lineup.a The Isles lost Michael Grabner, a former Canuck, to an upper-body injury late in the second period following a collision with Vancouver defenceman Tanev. a Canucks winger Zack Kassian served the second of a three-game suspensiona The game was rare in that it featured three Denmark natives - Jensen and Jannik Hansen of the Canucks and Nielsen of the Islanders. All three of them earned points. Only seven Danish players have suited up in the NHL this season. a Monday marked the ninth anniversary of the Aquilini Investment Groups purchase of the Canucks from former owner John McCaw. a Islanders defenceman Thomas Hickey is the only player to suit up for all 67 of their games this season.
