QuoteFLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- Frustrated fans have again taken to the air against the Jets.
Another banner-toting plane calling for the ouster of embattled New York general manager John Idzik circled the field during practice for several minutes Wednesday.
The banner, which appeared during the early portion of practice, read: ''PENALTY FLAG DAY 12/21 FIREJOHNIDZIK.COM'' in 5-foot capital red letters. The message was a reminder that the fan site has been issuing about 10,000 yellow towels - deemed ''penalty flags'' - at New York- and New Jersey-area bars, urging owner Woody Johnson to ''clean house'' by firing Idzik, team president Neil Glat and senior personnel executive Terry Bradway.
Fans are expected to bring the towels to the Jets' home finale Sunday against New England at MetLife Stadium.
None of the men mentioned on the towels appeared to be at practice while reporters watched the plane.
Idzik has received the majority of criticism for his personnel decisions during his two years as general manager. Bradway has been heavily involved with personnel for the Jets since 2001, when he was hired as the team's GM before being reassigned in 2006. Glat has been the team president since 2012, dealing with the business operations and not player moves or personnel.
On Nov. 5, a plane with a banner paid for by a fan that read ''FIRE JOHN IDZIK'' circled Jets practice for 20 minutes. The team playfully responded the next day when coach Rex Ryan sent up a toy helicopter at the beginning of practice at the indoor facility with a small banner that read: ''Go Jets.''

QuoteFor 20 seasons, Favre was convinced an injury, a steep drop-off in ability, something physical would drive him away from the game. That never happened.
Instead, the mental drain made him retire for good.
"The stress to be good week in and week out," Favre says. "The expectations I had placed upon myself, not to mention the expectations everyone else had, were just too great. There was no way I could surpass it. And no matter how good I played, the next week I had to be better. And that's the mentality that drives you. But also, it drove me bananas.
"When you lost, it stuck with you and still sticks with me ó forever. I'll think about a loss rather than 15 great wins."

QuoteMichael Vick has had many firsts during his NFL career, but he did something new even for him last Sunday. According to a Jets player, Vick threw a pass so hard he broke the finger of a teammate.
Vick entered the game midway through the first quarter for starter Geno Smith. Head coach Rex Ryan decided to go with the veteran Vick again on Sunday.
When asked about the transition to Vick as their starter, defensive end Sheldon Richardson said he's noticed the 34-year-old quarterback's unique skill set in practice, including his legendary arm. It was that cannon that caused an injury to tight end Jeff Cumberland last Sunday.
"I think he still got it. Why? He can fire the football that's why," Richardson said. "He broke Jeff's finger on a pass in the last game. He's still got it."
On Wednesday, Cumberland was sporting green tape on the middle finger of his left hand. He denied that his finger was broken, saying it was just dinged up.
"I was trying to grab the ball," Cumberland said. "Right place, right time."
Cumberland is expected to play on Sunday despite the finger injury. He was listed on the injury report, but was a full participant in practice Wednesday.
By all accounts, Vick has looked good in practice this week.
"Itís a lot of responsibility for any quarterback in this league. I think when you have a chance to go out and show and prove, I think youíve got to take advantage of the opportunity," Vick said on Wednesday. "They donít come around too often as Iíve seen for the last year and a half not being the starter. So just having this chance to become a starter again is almost like a dream come true. Itís just something that I want to take full advantage of and go out and have fun with my teammates and try to get a win. And thatís the challenge. Itís going to be tough on the road in Kansas City. But, what else would you want? You wouldnít want it any other way."
The future may not be so bright for Smith, whose struggles this year are as bad as last season. It will be the first time in his NFL career Smith will not be the starter.
"He's in a little struggle right now. It's still early but it's not the end of the world," Richardson said. "No one wants to be benched, no one wants to be taken off their starting role and be put into a backup role, no matter how politically correct it sounds. Still, as a competitor, it doesn't sit well. It's still a business."
