FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Fitz Magic fizzled, so its Geno Smiths turn -- again.The New York Jets will start Smith at quarterback Sunday against Baltimore at MetLife Stadium, sending Ryan Fitzpatrick and his one-year, $12 million contract to the sideline.I felt like it was time for a change, coach Todd Bowles said after practice Wednesday.At the NFL fall meetings in Houston, Jets owner Woody Johnson said it was Bowles call to go with Smith, with the Jets sinking at 1-5 and on a four-game losing streak. Bowles confirmed that it was strictly my call.I am behind the coach 100 percent, Johnson said. Our coach made the decision he felt needed to be made.Fitzpatrick has been a major reason for the Jets struggles, throwing an NFL-leading 11 interceptions and just five touchdown passes during a brutal start.I mean, I dont like it, Fitzpatrick said. Im disappointed that were making the change, but disappointed in my play this year, as well.The competitor in me really wants to be out there. The guy who was the leader of this team last year and the beginning of this year wants to be out there, but its a decision that Todd made. Ive got to respect his decision, but I dont have to like it.After the Jets lost 28-3 at Arizona on Monday night, Bowles said Fitzpatrick would remain the starter. He backtracked a bit Tuesday during a conference call , saying its always status quo right after games and he wanted to discuss things with his staff and general manager Mike Maccagnan that night. During those meetings, Bowles decided to go with Smith.Genos our starter right now, Bowles said. Well see how things go down the line.Bowles added that its possible the Jets could turn to Fitzpatrick again at some point.I can only go week to week, the coach said.Smith was the Jets starter last summer until his jaw was broken by a punch from then-teammate Ikemefuna Enemkpali during training camp.I think the person who benefited the most from this last year and a half has been Geno, wide receiver Brandon Marshall said. Its been amazing to see this guy grow and really, you know, punch adversity in the face.Fitzpatrick took over last summer and went on to throw a franchise-record 31 touchdown passes and get within a win of the playoffs at 10-6.After garnering little interest in the free-agent market, Fitzpatrick re-signed with the Jets on the eve of training camp, a move most Jets players celebrated . Fitzpatrick has had a rough go of it this season, including a six-interception performance at Kansas City on Sept. 25, but still appeared to have the support of most of his teammates.Marshall made that clear after 27-17 loss to Seattle in Week 4 when asked about the quarterback situation.I am. Going down. In a boat. With Ryan Fitzpatrick, Marshall said at the time.When asked about that comment Wednesday, Marshall smiled.In a boat, huh? he said. Boat down!New Yorks offensive woes were hard for Bowles to overlook. The Jets rank 26th overall and are last in the NFL in scoring with 15.8 points per game. Their red zone offense is also worst in the league, scoring eight touchdowns in 22 trips inside the opponents 20-yard line (36.4 percent).Smith tried to stay patient, but he told an ESPN reporter before the game Monday night that he was getting antsy while being stuck on the sideline as the team struggles.Now, Smith will have a chance to revive both his career and the Jets playoff hopes.Its not about me, Smith said. It never has been. Im going to go out there with my teammates and were all going to play hard and try to get a win.Smith last started in the 2014 season finale at Miami , where he threw for 358 yards and three touchdowns while compiling a perfect 158.3 quarterback rating in a 37-14 win.In his first game action since a mop-up appearance last November after Fitzpatrick hurt his left thumb, Smith replaced Fitzpatrick in the fourth quarter against the Cardinals and connected on his first four passes. On third-and-3 from the Cardinals 40, Smith fumbled as he was sacked, but the Jets recovered. He was intercepted by Tyrann Mathieu on the next play, the Jets final offensive possession.A second-round draft pick out of West Virginia in 2013, Smith started all but two games during his first two seasons. Smith showed momentary flashes but was largely inconsistent while throwing 25 TD passes and 34 interceptions in that span.He appeared to be settling into new offensive coordinator Chan Gaileys system, which seemed to suit his athletic style, last season. But then came the locker-room incident that threw his career into uncertainty and set in motion Fitzpatricks terrific season.Now, its back to Smith. At least, for now.Ive played before, Smith said. Its not going to be anything new to me, so Ive just got to go out there and take care of the football and make plays.---AP Pro Football Writer Barry Wilner in Houston contributed to this report.---AP NFL website: and Womens Lions Jerseys .

If European League of Legends fans were to compare the 2016 LCS summer split with its spring counterpart, they would come to the conclusion that the circuit has been flipped upside down and shaken to a cataclysmic extent.In fact, three teams that were out of the playoff race in the spring split are in the thick of it five weeks in: Jakob YamatoCannon Mebdis Splyce, the dark horses-turned-contenders Schalke 04, and the enigmatic Giants. For the latter, getting there involved a full reboot that had started two weeks before the end of the spring split.By the end of it, the emblematic squad that had qualified to the EU League Championship Series in 2015 had been fully revamped, save for head coach David LoZarK Alonso Vicente. I asked him which roster was better at its prime. This roster is completely better, he replied. We have a really good shotcaller. Everyone on the team knows how we want to play, what we want to do. In the other team, it was more like: we have one style, we want to play this type of game and just win. But it was not always that way.Following Giants decline in the standings during the 2016 spring split, the organization decided to upgrade key positions. In came Lennart Smittyj Warkus, Son S0NSTAR Seung-ik and Kim Wisdom Tae-wan - the latter two as a package - replacing Peter Atom Thomsen, Joachim Betongjocke Rasmussen and Adrian Adryh Pérez in the process. But the loss of its shotcaller, Oskar G0DFRED Lundstr?m, was a setback, if only on paper, and former Giants Underdoge Morgan Hustlin Granberg has since been a staple in the lineup.Smittyj recalls a time where the squad was still seeking to build an identity. I didnt feel that well either with everything, he noted. There wasnt much improvement going on, and it wasnt really a tryhard atmosphere. Nowadays, its a lot better. People are more hungry for success.Why is it better now? One final setback proved a blessing; Wisdoms departure allowed the squad to deal with the departure of its iconic mid laner, Isaac xPePii Flores. Using their contacts in Korea, Giants acquired Winners mid laner, Na NighT Gun-woo. Most importantly, due to the import rule, they signed Nubar Maxlore Sarafian into the lineup.LoZarK says that, as a resullt of Maxlores presence, the squad is extremely easy to work with.dddddddddddd He is a hard worker, the coach asserts. He helps the team a lot. He always tries to analyze everything - give feedback to his teammates.Maxlores drive to win pushed him to help his teammates, and he gained confidence as they proved receptive to his straightforward style of communication, his willingness to help fix mistakes and the sense of direction he provided. But the squad needed experience, particularly onstage, to succeed. The players they had in scrims were different from the players onstage, and adjustment proved time-consuming - and they needed enough time for that.Combine that with an initial language barrier the squad and NighT, and you get an understandably shaky start - not that the schedule helped. Fnatic, G2 Esports and H2k-Gaming capitalized on the Giants frailty, but the squads veterans - S0NSTAR and Smittyj - had undergone such a process many times before. Even Maxlore had jitters as he played more hesitantly, allowing opponents to take control as they capitalized on opportunities. But he shrugged that off quickly.Beyond onstage fright issues, Smittyj pinpointed the squads initial lack of initiative. We really were scared of doing plays and ending early, he explained. Thats why we always went to 50 minutes if we won. We didnt have the balls to end or just do some plays and finish.Gelling as a squad is a process that took time, hard work and an unwavering dedication. It turns out, gelling as a squad was the key to asserting the Giants as a legitimate contender for a playoff spot as they currently occupy sixth place.Team communication also evolved, as the framework Maxlore helped lay expanded, and other players started to communicate efficiently, informing their jungler on potential snowballing opportunities. Suddenly, a squad that seemed bound to occupy the last spot emerged as a European giant, poised to overtake the continents best - including Fnatic.In Europe right now, Smittyj informs, most teams are even. Anyone can win vs. anyone.And Giants are doing just that. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
