FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Less than one week into training camp, the New York Jets have made a significant cut at the quarterback position.Ryan Fitzpatricks big hair is gone.The starting quarterback, who created a stir by reporting to camp last week with overgrown locks in addition to his trademark bushy beard, showed up for practice on Wednesday with a buzz cut.The beard, though, remains.Clearly, Im disappointed in him, said center Nick Mangold, known for his long hair and prodigious beard. He looks like a tennis ball. But, on the other hand, his beard is still intact and Ill take beard over head hair.Fitzpatrick, still wearing his game face after practice, avoided photographers and declined to meet with reporters. Clearly, he didnt want his new hairstyle to become a big story. These arent the Rex Ryan Jets anymore, as coach Todd Bowles prefers a businesslike approach.I really dont have a comment, Bowles said of Fitzpatricks new look. Its hot, so to not have a lot of hair is good.Wide receiver Eric Decker told the New York Daily News that Fitzpatrick shaved his head because he lost a bet, but he wouldnt reveal any specifics.Fitzpatrick hinted of a possible haircut on Tuesday, when he told ESPNs NFL Live, Hopefully, well cut it soon. If anything, its kind of given people something else to talk about other than the contract.Fitzpatricks months-long contract dispute ended on the eve of camp, when he signed a one-year deal for $12 million. He said some teammates laughed at his hair when he walked into the first team meeting.The new do was unveiled on a day in which Fitzpatrick enjoyed his best practice of training camp, throwing touchdown passes to four different players. It was quite a turnaround from Tuesday, when the offense sputtered throughout practice. Wide receiver Brandon Marshall was so frustrated that he punted a football over the bleachers at the end of the practice.A slumping Fitzpatrick made headlines last November when he shaved down his beard and the team promptly started a five-game winning streak. It was the best stretch of his career, and he finished with a team-record 31 touchdown passes.Maybe its a good-luck thing.I rubbed his head for good luck this morning, Mangold said, and we carried on.

Uniteds eighth defeat of a wretched campaign means Liverpool, which currently occupies the fourth and final Champions League place, could go nine points clear of its fierce rival by beating West Bromwich Albion on Sunday. Charlie Adam scored both of Stokes goals at Britannia Stadium either side of Robin van Persies equalizer, with a miserable day for seventh-place United capped by first-half injuries to centre halves Jonny Evans and Phil Jones that forced them off.

He has no mixups! exclaimed the always outspoken Martin Marn Phan about fellow R.Mika player Ai Fuudo Keita from Japan. Its solid, thats how youre supposed to play, but if he incorporated mix-ups I think hed the best in the world.Strangely enough, Fuudos style of play did get him to the grand finals of Evolutions inaugural Street Fighter V tournament (while Marn himself was knocked out earlier), but he failed to capture the world title from South Korean Lee Infiltration Seon-woo and his prrecise Nash.ddddddddddddLoud, off-the-wall, and certainly polarizing, Marn is never afraid to share his opinions on the game he plays, the people he plays against and the fighting game community in general. It doesnt matter if youre the legendary Daigo The Beast Umehara or a casual player, Marn will find something -- anything -- to give his opinion on about you. ' ' '
