NEW YORK, N. DaMarcus Beasley USA Jersey .Y. - In the locker room, the win meant a whole lot to Rex Ryan and his players. On social media, it felt more like a loss to some New York Jets fans.Welcome to the bizarre paradox that has become the Jets 3-11 season.Were going to go out every Sunday and try to get a W no matter whats going on, right tackle Breno Giacomini said Monday, no matter what our record is.But this is the type of year this has been for the Jets: They beat the Tennessee Titans 16-11 for their first road win on Sunday — and some fans were upset. Twitter was filled with fans disappointed that the Titans — yes, the Jets opponent — couldnt pull off a late comeback win.Thats because they viewed New Yorks win as costly, with their team falling to sixth in the NFL draft order and maybe out of reach for top quarterback prospects Marcus Mariota and Jameis Winston, both Heisman Trophy winners.Obviously, you play the game to win, but theyre fans, you know? Giacomini said. Theyre looking down into the future, and theyre entitled to their opinion. If theyre that interested in the team, thats a good thing. Theyre loyal fans, which is a good thing out of this.According to the sports analytics site, the Jets chances of getting the No. 1 overall pick dropped from 11.82 per cent last week to 0.02 per cent. A pack of 2-12 teams — Oakland, Tampa Bay, Jacksonville and Tennessee — and 3-11 Washington are all projected, based on projections by the site, to finish ahead of the Jets.That means the win at Tennessee might have knocked New York clear out of the running to kick off the draft in April. Even Donald Trump weighed in on Twitter, agreeing with the fans who wanted to see the Titans pull off a lateral-filled winning touchdown on the last play Sunday.The Jets should have let them score to get the number one draft pick, who will be really good, Trump tweeted. It will just never change for them!Other fans, though, were just happy to watch the Jets win — especially during a season in which there have been so few.Im not caught up into the hype as far as the media coverage with what people are saying, linebacker Quinton Coples said. Our job is to compete and play hard, not only for ourselves, but for the organization, period. Everything else will handle itself.The Jets posted a video of Ryans celebratory locker room speech posted on the teams website after the game. With owner Woody Johnson — the man who controls Ryans future — watching and listening intently, left tackle DBrickashaw Ferguson awarded the game ball to Ryan.Weve been all battling and weve been all struggling, Ferguson said. But we really appreciate everything youve done, Coach.Ryan later handed the game ball off to his father Buddy, who was at the game despite battling several illnesses in recent years, including bouts of cancer, some strokes and encephalitis.With the younger Ryans future uncertain, it was perhaps one last chance for the 83-year-old Buddy Ryan to see his son coach the Jets.It was a little extra motivation with my Dad being in the stadium able to watch the game, Rex Ryan said. He hasnt been able to do that this year, so that felt really good and felt better to give him the ball.The Jets and Ryan have possibly just two more games left together — against AFC East division rivals New England and Miami. Thats all the coach is focused on, not whether he and maybe even general manager John Idzik are in their last days with the organization.Its not hard for me to do, Ryan said. Im a confident person, and I think Im a decent football coach and I think people who know the game realize that. So, I dont worry about it.Several players are trying not to think that far ahead, either, but they continue to express their respect for Ryan.I dont want him to go anywhere, Giacomini said. We all know this is a business, so Im going to do what I can do and that is to go out there and fight for my head coach on the field.___AP NFL website: and Stefan de Vrij Netherland Jersey . - Vicente Sanchez and Deshorn Brown scored from penalties two minutes apart in the second half to lead the Colorado Rapids to a 2-0 win over the Portland Timbers in Major League Soccer on Saturday. Alejandro Bedoya Jersey . -- Jerome Samson scored twice, and St.CLEVELAND - The Cavaliers largest loss of the season didnt sit well with coach David Blatt.That was embarrassing, how we played, he said after the Atlanta Hawks routed Cleveland 127-98 on Wednesday night. I apologize to all the good fans who came out here. Really, just a poor, poor performance.Shelvin Mack scored a career-high 24 points and the Hawks won for the 11th time in 12 games.Mack, a reserve guard who came in averaging 3.8 points, made all six of his 3-pointers as the Hawks went 16 for 28 from behind the arc.Trailing 50-38 midway through the second quarter, Atlanta outscored Cleveland 89-48 the rest of the way. The Hawks, playing without leading scorer Jeff Teague, avenged a 127-94 defeat in Cleveland on Nov. 15.We got blown out the first game, like blown all the way out, Mack said. That wasnt a great feeling. We wanted to come back and see what were made of.LeBron James scored 21 points but didnt play in the fourth quarter, which began with Atlanta leading 95-75.While Blatt said he didnt see any fight in his team, James didnt find the loss embarrassing, but said the team had a setback defensively. The four-time MVP took an analytical approach to the defeat, Clevelands third in four games since winning eight straight.We allowed them to get too many open looks, he said. This is a well-coached team that we played. It reminds you of playing San Antonio, that system. They move the ball and get you in uncomfortable positions.Atlanta coach Mike Budenholzer, a longtime Spurs assistant before taking over the Hawks last season, was understandably pleased with the performance.Its a great team win, he said. You go up and down the roster, different guys contributing at different times. Thats what were trying to build, is a team.Al Horford scored 20 points and Mike Scott added 15 for Atlanta, which had seven players in double figures and shot 64.5 per cent from the field.The Hawks went 24 for 35 in the first half and continued to slice up Clevelands defence in the third quarter. Paul Millsaps jumper put them ahead 79-68 at the 6:51 mark, and the lead never got under double digits.Atlanta went 9 of 11 on 3s in the second quarter to erase a 12-point deficitt and led 65-60 at halftime. Jeffrey Bruma Jersey. Mack made all five of his 3-point attempts and scored 17 in the quarter. Scotts 3-pointer from two steps behind the arc at the buzzer capped the sequence.Kevin Love, who missed the morning shootaround because of flu-like symptoms, scored 13 points and had 10 rebounds for Cleveland.The game began much like the matchup in November, when Cleveland hit all nine of its 3-pointers in the first quarter and began the game 11 for 11 from behind the arc.The Cavaliers again put on an impressive offensive display in the first quarter Wednesday when they hit 12 of 19 shots with 10 assists. As they did in Mondays win over Charlotte, Love and James hooked up on two highlight-reel plays. Love hit James with two length-of-the-court passes that resulted in layups.___NICE STRETCHThe Hawks defeated Chicago on Monday and followed that with another strong performance, which was even more impressive considering Teague was sidelined. Its what Im referencing when I talk about a good team, Budenholzer said. Somebodys down, we have a lot of confidence in everybody that they can step up and do what we need to win.IN THE LINEUPLove said he didnt consider not playing despite battling the flu. I always felt like I was going to play. If Im feeling up to it, Im going out there and give it a go. Love played 32 minutes before being pulled early in the fourth.TIP-INSHawks: Dennis Schroder started at point guard in place of Teague, who leads the team in points (16.8) and assists (7.0). Schroder had 10 points and 10 assists. ... The game began a tough road stretch for Atlanta. After playing at Houston on Saturday, the Hawks face Dallas on Monday. The three opponents went into Wednesday with a combined record of 50-22.Cavaliers: G Kyrie Irving, who was 4 for 9 from the field, returned to the court from the locker room after the game to work on his jumper. ... G Mike Miller, who sustained a concussion on Dec. 4, missed his seventh straight game. Blatt said Miller still has some stiffness in his neck area, and decided to hold him out one more game as a precaution.UP NEXTHawks: At Houston on Saturday.Cavaliers: Host Brooklyn on Friday. wholesale jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap soccer jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap nfl jerseys china ' ' '
