Michael Vick: Jameis Winston is 'future of the NFL'


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2014) When Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston does make it to the NFL, he will already have the support of Jets quarterback Michael Vick.

Despite Winston’s troubles away from the field, Vick believes Winston will be the league’s next big star.

"I think he's the future of the NFL," Vick said, per ESPN.

While some NFL teams are concerned about Winston’s character, Vick believes Winston's talent on the field will overshadow any mistakes he makes off it.

"But I do know one thing: He may make some poor decisions, but he gets on that football field and he plays his ass off," Vick said. "Yeah, he can mature. He'll mature. I see him maturing as time goes on. Like, this year hasn't been as bad of a year as the first year was for Jameis. I think the kid will continue to improve." 


Report: Jets QB Vick has $18 million debt nearly paid


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) Jets quarterback Michael Vick is on the brink of paying off nearly $18 million owed to creditors, ESPN has reported.

Vick filed for bankruptcy protection in July 2008. He served a year-and-a-half in prison for taking part in a dogfighting ring. It took him nearly seven years to pay off the debt.


Jets QB Michael Vick: I was not benched


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2014) Jets veteran quarterback Michael Vick made a point to tell the media that he has not been benched in favor of Geno Smith. He prefers to look at it as being on a team out of contention that needs to see what the younger quarterback can do.

"I don't look at it as me getting benched, first and foremost, to correct you," Vick told ESPN. But if you want to look at it that way, you can."

Vick was replaced after three starts.

"I really don't have to speak in detail about it, because it really don't make a difference," Vick added. "You're going to think what you going to think, I'm going to think what I'm going to think and I think what I think is most important."

That is?

"I just look at it as an opportunity for this organization to figure out the things that they need to figure out and see what they need to see," Vick said.


Rex Ryan confirms Geno Smith will start again Week 14


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Asked if he learned anything from Smith's performance against Miami, Ryan replied: "No, because he only threw it 13 times. ... I'm just kidding."

Smith replaced Michael Vick in the third quarter of the Week 12 loss to Buffalo.

Report: Jets QB change not fully supported by coaches, players


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2014) Although Jets coach Rex Ryan said Wednesday that "everybody's on board" with the decision to replace Michael Vick with Geno Smith at quarterback, it appears that might not be totally true, according to the New York Daily News.

Sources told the Daily News offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg was among the majority of people in the organization, including players, who wanted Vick to remain the starting quarterback. Ryan also preferred to continue to start Vick, who was benched during a 38-3 loss Monday against the Bills.

However, Ryan made the decision to change starting quarterbacks because he wants to avoid conflict with his bosses -- owner Woody Johnson and general manager John Idzik. Ryan wants to take the high road before looking for his next job, sources told the Daily News.

"I think the best thing for this team right now is to play Geno Smith," Ryan said Wednesday. "Does he give you a good chance to win? Or a chance to win? I believe he does give us a chance to win."


Jets QB Vick understands reasons for losing starting job


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2014) After meeting with Rex Ryan, Jets now-backup quarterback Michael Vick said he was "cool" with the decision by the coach to place Geno Smith back as the starter,

Vick started three games and managed a quarterback rating of 83.1. His lone dud was a 7-for-19 effort in a bad loss to Buffalo on Monday night. The team would like more time to judge Smith to determine his potential as a franchise quarterback. Vick claims to understand that.

"I know what I signed up for," he told NJ.com. "I came here to get better, to help Geno get better, and help this team win football games. I wish I could have won three. But I felt like I did everything I could ... Things didn't play out the way I wanted them too.

"I'm going to support Geno. ... That's my little brother. I want him to do well. I want him to succeed and excel. It's great to see him get another opportunity. He had a sour taste in his mouth, so now he gets a chance to go out and make it right."


Jets make the change at QB -- Smith will replace Vick as starter


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2014) Despite speculation Michael Vick would start Week 13 against the Dolphins, Jets coach Rex Ryan informed his quarterbacks Wednesday morning Geno Smith would be returning to the starting role Monday. 

Vick, who entered the starting lineup Week 9 against the Chiefs, was replaced by Smith in the third quarter of Monday's game against the Bills. Smith will be facing a Dolphins defense yielding 220.6 passing yards per game, which is the eighth-lowest total in the NFL. The Dolphins have allowed 20 passing touchdowns through 11 games.


Report: Vick would likely be Rex Ryan's choice to start Week 13


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) While Jets coach Rex Ryan refrained from naming a starting quarterback following Monday's loss against the Bills, Michael Vick is expected to start Week 13 against the Dolphins, if his calf is fine and Ryan is allowed to make the decision, a source told the New York Daily News.

Vick was replaced late in the third quarter by Geno Smith during a 38-3 loss Week 12. Vick said he was kicked in the calf Monday, but he could have returned. Ryan said he "wanted to give Geno a chance."

Vick completed 7 of 19 passes for 76 yards, no touchdowns and one interception before being replaced by Smith, who completed 10 of 12 passes for 89 yards.

"I want to see how they look," Ryan said after the game. "Sometimes you have a feel and a sense of it on the field. When you watch the tape, maybe you see a differently. So we’ll take a look at it and do what we think is best."


Jets undecided about Week 13 quarterback


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan said he hasn't decided whether Michael Vick or Geno Smith will start at quarterback on Monday Night Football in Week 13 against Miami. "We'll address that later," he said. "I don't know yet."

Ryan benched Vick for Smith in the third quarter of the 38-3 loss to the Bills.


Michael Vick benched after MNF disaster


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) With 4:57 left in the third quarter Monday, Jets coach Rex Ryan had seen enough. He benched quarterback Michael Vick for Geno Smith after Vick was intercepted by Bills safety Duke Williams.

It was Vick's only interception, but the Bills could have had at least three other picks. Vick completed 7 of 19 throws for 76 yards (4.0 ypa), ran twice for 4 yards and absorbed five sacks. He had a chance for a 69-yard touchdown right before halftime, but his throw to Eric Decker was a bit long and Decker couldn't bring it in.

Smith saw his first action since he was benched Week 8, also against the Bills.


QB Michael Vick secures NFL rushing record in Sunday win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Jets quarterback Michael Vick did little after the first quarter Sunday against Pittsburgh. But then, he did enough before that to key a rare victory.

Vick missed wideout Jeremy Kerley in the end zone to force the Jets to settle for a field goal on the first possession, but he made up for it with a perfect 67-yard touchdown pass off play-action to T.J. Graham and 5-yard scoring strike in the back of the end zone to Jace Amaro. He completed the quarter 4 of 5 for 92 yards and the two scores.

He finished the game 10 of 18 for 132 yards and aided the cause with his legs, rushing for 39 yards on eight carries. Those yards made him the first quarterback in NFL history to exceed 6,000 on the ground in a career.

Vicl will have plenty of time to savor his performance as the Jets are now on their bye week.


Probables all cleared by Jets for Week 10 game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) All the Jets probables have received the thumbs-up for action Sunday against Pittsburgh, including quarterbacks Michael Vick (foot) and Geno Smith (shoulder). Among the others are offensive linemen Oday Aboushi (shoulder), Willie Colon (knee), Breno Giacomini (illness) and Nick Mangold (shoulder), linebacker David Harris (shoulder), wide receiver Percy Harvin (heel) and defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson (illness).

Jets' Ryan: Geno Smith has approached demotion 'right way'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/4/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan is pleased with how quarterback Geno Smith has handled his demotion from the starting quarterback role, according to Newsday.

"I think he has prepared well. I guess time will tell once he gets an opportunity to play again," Ryan said. "I don't think any player likes it. They shouldn't like it. But, I think he approached it the right way."

Smith was benched in favor of Michael Vick heading into Week 9 against the Chiefs. Vick will be under center again Week 10 against the Steelers, and Ryan gave no indication about when Smith might return to the starting role.

"I am not really looking past this game," Ryan said Monday. "So if that happens, then it happens. Right now we are going with Mike to play against Pittsburgh, and that's as far as I have thought about it."


Rex Ryan: Jets more concerned with Michael Vick's foot issue


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan told reporters during his Monday news conference that he's more concerned with Michael Vick's lingering foot issue than any other injuries. Ryan noted that Vick, who made a brief exit with a head injury, got stepped on a few times during Sunday's loss to the Chiefs, the New York Daily News reports.

Vick is expected to be the starting quarterback for Week 10 against the Steelers.


Michael Vick not explosive enough?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/2/2014) Making his first start in place of the ineffective Geno Smith, Jets quarterback Michael Vick was surprisingly efficient throwing the ball Week 9 at Kansas City, completing 21 of 28 passes for 196 yards and a touchdown. What he lacked were the explosive plays that defined him for most of his career with Philadelphia and Atlanta, with only five of his completions going for more than 10 yards.

Even as a runner, he put everyone to sleep, picking up 18 yards on four carries. He was safe and boring, the complete opposite of everything Fantasy owners had known him to be, and with six more teams on bye in Week 10, they'd give anything to have the old Vick back.

The good news is he'll get another chance Week 10 against Pittsburgh. Coach Rex Ryan has already confirmed he's the starter. But coming off this performance for a team known for playing it safe on offense, how can you trust him in Fantasy/


Jets QB Michael Vick named Week 10 starter following Week 9 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Jets quarterback Michael Vick was able to finish out Sunday's 24-10 loss at Kansas City despite briefly leaving in the fourth quarter due to a head injury. Vick was hurt on a 4th-and-goal play early in the fourth quarter, as he was slammed to the turf on an incomplete pass.

Vick laid on the ground for a few moments before rising to his feet. Although, he appeared wobbly walking off the field and needed the help of the trainers to make it to the sideline. Vick was evaluated on the bench for a few minutes before walking to the locker room. With Geno Smith (shoulder) inactive, Vick was replaced by Matt Simms.

However, after missing just one series, Vick surprisingly made his return to the game. Prior to getting hurt, he was 12 of 14 for 92 yards and one touchdown -- a 3-yard pass to Eric Decker late in the second quarter. He also rushed for 12 yards on three carries. He finished the game 21 of 28 for 196 yards, while rushing for 18 yards on four carries.

The Jets are back in action Week 10 vs. Pittsburgh. Coach Rex Ryan said after Sunday's loss that Vick will start next week.

"As long as he's healthy, we'll go with Mike," Ryan said.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Jets quarterback Michael Vick surprisingly returned to the game Sunday against the Chiefs after leaving early in the fourth quarter with a head injury. Vick missed just one series before returning to the game.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Jets quarterback Michael Vick had to leave Sunday's game at Kansas City in the fourth quarter due to a head injury. Vick was hurt on a 4th-and-goal play early in the fourth quarter, as he was slammed to the turf on an incomplete pass.

Vick laid on the ground for a few moments before rising to his feet. Although, he appeared wobbly walking off the field and needed the help of the trainers to make it to the sideline. Vick was evaluated on the bench for a few minutes before walking to the locker room. With Geno Smith (shoulder) inactive, Vick was replaced by Matt Simms.

Vick threw just his second incompletion of the game on the play he was injured. He was 12 of 14 for 92 yards and one touchdown -- a 3-yard pass to Eric Decker late in the second quarter. He also rushed for 12 yards on three carries. The Jets are back in action Week 10 vs. Pittsburgh.


Report: Geno Smith might be back as Jets starting QB in Week 10


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith's benching might not last very long. The beleaguered second-year quarterback could return to the starting quarterback role as soon as Week 10 against the Steelers because the team doesn't view Michael Vick -- who is starting Sunday against the Chiefs -- as the long-term solution at quarterback, team sources told NFL.com.

Smith might be inactive Sunday against Kansas City due to a shoulder injury he suffered Week 8. If that happens, Matt Simms will be the team's backup quarterback.


Jets GM unsure if team has franchise quarterback on roster


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith said following his demotion Monday the he "without a doubt" can be a franchise quarterback in the NFL, according to Newsday. Jets owner Woody Johnson said something similar in early October after Smith got off to a rocky start this season.

It seems, however, that general manager John Idzik might not have the same opinion. Asked during an interview with SNY that aired Tuesday, if he believes there is a franchise quarterback on the Jets roster, Idzik said: "Don't know that. Don't know that. That's still to be determined. You don't want to try to answer that question too prematurely."

In a 38-minute press conference with the media Monday, Idzik didn't provide many details about Smith's future with the team. He took a similar approach during the interview with SNY.

"We will continue with the development curve and we will continue searching," Idzik said. "We'll continue to try to enhance that position in any way we can."

Michael Vick is set to start at quarterback for the Jets in Week 9 against the Chiefs.


Jets officially announce Michael Vick will start Week 9


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan made it official on Monday, announcing that Michael Vick will be the starting quarterback over Geno Smith for Week 9 against Kansas City. Ryan told reporters that the move was his decision and that Vick's hold on the starting job isn't guaranteed beyond this week, per the New York Daily News.

Vick took over for Smith after the second-year quarterback three three interceptions against the Bills. Ryan hopes that Smith will "maybe get a different perspective" by watching Vick play from sideline. Vick lost two of four fumbles and completed 18 of 36 pass attempts for 153 yards with one interception in Week 8 against Buffalo.


Report: Jets QB Michael Vick expected to start over Geno Smith


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) Barring a last minute "power play" decision from general manager John Idzik or owner Woody Johnson, the Jets are expected to start Michael Vick at quarterback against the Chiefs in Week 9, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News on Monday.

Vick took over for second-year starter Geno Smith, who threw three interceptions against Buffalo. Vick led the team with 69 yards on the ground, but failed to make much of an impact through the air. The veteran quarterback completed 18 of 36 passes for 153 yards with one interceptions and losing two of his four fumbles in New York's 43-23 loss on Sunday.
