Draft Scout *Michael Vick News
10/27/14 - QB Michael Vick is the Jets' new starting quarterback.
Vick relieved Geno Smith on Sunday after Smith threw interceptions on three straight series in the first quarter against the Bills. Vick made plenty of mistakes himself - he threw an interception, lost two fumbles and had another interception overturned on review - but he directed four scoring drives in a 43-23 loss.
Coach Rex Ryan's refusal late Sunday afternoon to name a starter for this week's game against Kansas City spelled doom for Smith. Ryan benched Smith at halftime of a 31-0 loss to San Diego on Oct. 5 but declared Smith was still the starter immediately after that game.
"I think when Mike came into the game, I thought it did give us a spark," Ryan said "I felt the energy on the sideline, and I think given an opportunity that he really hasn't been given - which is to really run with the first team all week - that we will see how it plays out."
10/26/14 - QB Michael Vick may have earned the Jets' starting quarterback job for the rest of the season by accounting for 222 yards of total offense and directing the Jets to four scores in relief of QB Geno Smith during a 43-23 loss to the Bills on Sunday. Vick, who came on for Smith after Smith threw interceptions on three straight first quarter series, was 18-of-36 for 153 yards passing and rushed eight times for a team-high 69 yards. He committed three turnovers (one interception and two fumbles). Afterward, head coach Rex Ryan said he didn't know who would start next week's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
08/25/14 - QB Michael Vick will start the preseason finale against the Eagles on Thursday night. Vick, who played the previous five seasons with the Eagles, isn*t expected to play long before being pulled for Matt Simms.
