FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The New York Jets open quarterback competition might already be case closed. At least, thats what Michael Vick thinks. As far as hes concerned, its very clearly Geno Smiths job to lose. "Im wishing the best for Geno," Vick said Thursday during the teams first open media session this off-season. "Im going to help him each and every day. Im going to help him get better. My thing is, when its my time to go out there and play, Ive got to be ready when my numbers called. And nothing can come in between that." Vick, who signed with New York in March, acknowledged this situation is different from last off-season with Philadelphia when he headed into workouts competing with Nick Foles for the starting job. "We knew, both of us coming in, that it was open competition, and the best guy was going to win the job," he said. "Whoever performed well throughout OTAs and preseason, thats just what it was. It was pretty much cut and dried. This situation ... its kind of unique. "But even though its not an open competition, were both competing every day and we both have to perform well each and every day." Coach Rex Ryan and general manager John Idzik have said that Vicks presence is expected to help Smith with his development from his shaky rookie season. Idzik preaches competition at every position, although Ryan has said Smith will be tough to beat out. "Its not been made public that its an open competition," Vick said. "Chip Kelly made it known that it was an open competition (in Philadelphia). But were still not going to change our approach. This is the NFL. Youve got to perform. Youve got to be at your best each and every day." Vick still believes he can be a starter in the NFL, and was playing well in Kellys up-tempo offence before a hamstring injury sidelined him. Foles took over and started the rest of the season. Vick was forced into a mentors role, and he drew praise from Kelly and the Eagles for how he handled the situation. He could find himself in the same situation this season. "Its still tough right now, Ill admit," Vick said. "I wont lie. Because deep down, you always want to be a starter. You always feel like youre starting. Thats just the competitive nature in me. And hopefully, that opportunity will come again one day and Ive just got to keep working for it." Despite all that, both Vick and Smith will be closely watched from now through training camp. If the two perform at about the same level, Vick is fairly certain of the outcome. "Yeah, I would assume Geno would be the starter," he said. "Genos making great strides." Smith isnt taking anything for granted, even if Vick already sees him as No. 1. The second-year quarterback knows hes got a long way to go after a season in which he threw 12 touchdown passes and was intercepted 21 times. He finished with a flourish, though, helping the Jets win three of their last four games and going without a turnover in the final two. "Mentally, I wont change," Smith said. "Ill compete as if Im the last guy on the depth chart trying to make this team. I think thats what makes me better and thats the way I work, and Ive always done that. The biggest difference is my familiarity with the offence, knowing my protections, not trying to come in and learn everything on the go. "Having 16 games under my belt is really going to pay off for me." Smith entered last spring in a competition with Mark Sanchez, but was thrust into the starting job when Sanchez was lost to a season-ending shoulder injury in the preseason. It was on-the-job training for Smith, who flashed at times but often looked very much like an inexperienced rookie. He enters this years competition as the incumbent, which often means that player starts with the lead -- something Smith refuses to consider. "I dont put my mind in that position," he said. "I try to work as if Im the underdog. Whether Im named the starter or not, thats the way that I work. Like I said, thats something that helps me, having that constant edge, having that chip on my shoulder, just working extremely hard every single day to get better." Micker Adolfo White Sox Jersey .

Reynaldo Lopez Jersey . Bryant, who signed a five-year, $34 million contract as a free agent with Cleveland in March, reported symptoms on Monday morning, a team spokesman said. Thyago Vieira Jersey . It was the start of one nice night for the goalie and the Minnesota Wild. Backstrom made 33 saves in his first win of the season and the Wild defeated the Chicago Blackhawks 5-3 on Saturday in a rematch of their first-round playoff series.Every night of the Stanley Cup playoffs, TSN hockey analyst and former NHL goaltender Jamie McLennan breaks down each goalies performance. Jamies number grades given are out of five, with five being the best mark. Darcy Kuemper, Minnesota (5): He was calm, poised, and looked comfortable all game. He wasnt tested very much, but was strong on rebound control and positioning. He made the most of his saves from the top of his crease; nice start for the young goalie. Semyon Varlamov, Colorado (5): Hep put a show on tonight. He could be the best goalie in the league right now as far as his crease work. Hes strong on posts with his ability to fight off second chances and cover the bottom of net stemming from his leg power and flexibility. There was too many cases to list, but he was the only reason this game was close. He had no chance on the GWG. Corey Crawford, Chicago (5): He was outstanding all game long, He locked in from the drop of the puck, with his best saved for fighting through traffic as the Blues had a real net front presence tonight. His last big save was on Pietrangelo through a body with 40 seconds left. His rebound control was great as well, not a lot of scrambling due to his control in the net. Ryan Miller, St. Louis (4): The early goal to Toews was ugly, but he rebounded with great saves on Hossa and Sharp and then a bbig save on Shaw with three minutes left.dddddddddddd. Not a lot of second chances on him as the Hawks pressured in spurts. Miller gave the Blues a chance to win Marc-Andre Fleury, Pittsburgh (3): He battled through a tough start and showed he has the mental capacity to lock it down. His game-saving best work was in the second when Columbus pressed hard on the PP, he made two scramble saves in tight on Johansen and Dubinsky. He also made a big save on Johansen with under 30 seconds left off the rush. Sergei Bobrovsky, Columbus (3): He was great early on when he was under siege by Pittsburgh. He had a tough 2:40 stretch where he gave up three goals on three shots, but bounced back with tough saves on Crosby, Neal and Malkin in tight. Frederik Andersen, Anaheim (2): It wasnt his sharpest effort, his rebound control was an issue all game long. Benns goal was off a rebound,and Nikushkins goal went through the body. Kari Lehtonen, Dallas (5): He had a brilliant game; was the reason they won. He faced high quality chances and had big saves on Koivu, Silverberg, and Palmieri in the third alone to keep it at 2-0 before they scored the third goal to ice the win. His puck handling was a real strength as he was able to help exit the zone a few key times for Dallas with ease. This was a must win in their building and he delivered. ' ' '
