Jets QB Mike Vick on Jets QB Geno Smith: "He’s going to be great. He’s going to be 10 times better than me."
It sounds as though Vick is content on being the Jets' backup quarterback and as well he should be. The Jets have to find out exactly what the have with Geno Smith and you can't learn that if he is riding the pine to an over-the-hill veteran. Of course, at the first sign of real trouble--or an injury--Vick will be right back into a starting role for New York.ANALYST: David Kerr
Teams have begun to eye Braves starting pitcher Shelby Miller.
What a shock. Suddenly teams are interested in a 24-year old who is 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA and 43:16 K:BB over 54.0 innings. Never saw that coming. The Braves did a nice job not only acquiring Miller, but also in developing him more. His use of a new cutter is increasing his ground ball rate and he is inducing a lot more weak contact. As a result, strikeouts are up, walks are down and Miller looks like a tremendous asset.Expect teams to make pitches for Miller, but don't expect the Braves to bite. Analysis: Howard Bender
