Ready for a little Michael Vick in the afternoon?
Chris Johnson is going to be asked to do a lot for the Jets this season. So far, he’s shown that age is just a number and he’s capable of being what he once was.
Vick’s first game back in the city he called home for five seasons was reduced to nothing more than a one-play cameo, something more suitable for an Instagram video rather than the highlight reels he filled with the Eagles.
Michael Vick is coming back to Philadelphia wearing a different shade of green and a new uniform number.
Smith is brimming with confidence, and with that comes increased respect in the locker room. The bottom line, though, is the success — or failure — of Rex Ryan’s team could depend on Smith’s performance this season.
Vick, now the backup to Geno Smith with the Jets, is expected to take a few snaps Thursday night when he returns to Philadelphia in the teams’ preseason finale.
Geno Smith and Michael Vick each threw touchdown passes with the New York Jets’ starting offense, and the defense mostly shut down Eli Manning before the Giants’ backups rallied for a 35-24 preseason victory Friday night.
Michael Vick has done everything asked of him and some things people don’t really know about in his role as mentor to Geno Smith.
Geno Smith and Andy Dalton had horrid performances in their last games at Paul Brown Stadium. And neither has forgotten.
A Jets commercial just popped on TV, imploring me to buy tickets for this season. The Giants don’t have to worry about selling seats — or their souls — to get you in the building, which means MetLife belongs to Big Blue.
Michael Vick says there’s a time and a place for the wildcat. Donovan McNabb knows when and where. Never. And in a landfill.
Geno Smith: three points. Michael Vick: seven. Quarterback controversy for the New York Jets? Nope. Not even close. OK, well, not yet.
Geno Smith hasn’t officially been named the Jets’ starting quarterback for Week 1, although we all know it’s his job to lose. Nothing changed on Thursday night.
Geno Smith was solid. Michael Vick showed he was still the fastest guy on the field. Both players led scoring drives. Overall it was a good — but not overwhelming — showing on Thursday night.
Michael Vick led the New York Jets on a touchdown drive, capped by fellow newcomer Chris Johnson’s 1-yard scoring run, in a 13-10 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night in the preseason opener for both teams.
