Default ther contract can be particularly hard to cope with, Gouttebarge noted.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. Joe Williams Jersey . - Rex Ryans tenuous future with the New York Jets isnt stopping the coach from trying to win as much as he can on his way out the door.No matter how much fans want a top draft pick.Chris Ivory scored on a 1-yard touchdown run with 3:09 left, and the Jets beat the Tennessee Titans 16-11 on Sunday in a game marked by a brawl between teams playing only for pride with the loser hoping for better draft position.A real fan, a Jet fan, wants to win, Ryan said. It doesnt matter what pick you get or whatever. If Peyton Mannings out there, I can understand it, but I dont think Peyton Mannings out there. You know what? Were fighting every game, and were going to fight next week, too, against New England. Jet fans want to win, are you kidding me? Weve only got two of them.Now, actually three as the Jets (3-11) also won their first road game this season and snapped a three-game skid in the first NFL game to end with a 16-11 score.Im proud of that fact, a smiling Ryan said.Geno Smith threw for 179 yards and a TD. He also was apparently hit by Titans defensive tackle Jurrell Casey, starting a brawl in the third quarter. Casey was flagged, but not ejected.The Titans (2-12) now have lost eight straight and 11 of 12 in their worst skid since 1994 when home was in Houston. They got the ball twice late, and reached the Jets 9 after three laterals on the final play came up short. Ryan said he thought the play should have been whistled dead on the third, which he said went forward.A lot of times when you run that play, you dont even get within striking distance, Titans quarterback Charlie Whitehurst said. We had a chance with a lateral play to make something happen, and we got pretty close.The Jets trailed 11-10 when Chris Johnson, playing against the team that cut him in April, ran 37 yards out of the wildcat to the Titans 4. Ivory capped the drive running wide left for the TD. The Jets went for the 2-point conversion, but Jeremy Kerley couldnt hold onto Smiths pass keeping it a 16-11 lead.The Titans got to the Jets 22 with 2 minutes left before turning it over on downs with a sack by Quinton Coples and three incompletions.They got it back with 21 seconds and were near midfield for the final play. Whitehurst, playing with Jake Locker out with an injured left shoulder, threw to Dexter McCluster, who lateraled to Nate Washington. The receiver threw back to Whitehurst, who lateraled to Delanie Walker who was tackled by Dawan Landry to seal the Jets win.This game nearly got out of hand in the third quarter as referee John Parry was reviewing an 81-yard pass to Eric Decker.After Casey appeared to hit Smith, the teams started pushing and shoving with Casey also hitting Jets right tackle Breno Giacomini twice. Caseys helmet knocked off in the melee before officials broke it up. The review turned Deckers TD to a 48-yard completion, and Casey stayed in the game despite being flagged for a personal foul.Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said he thought a couple of Jets came off the bench in the melee. Ryan thought his quarterback took a punch in the face.But apparently, he didnt get hit, Ryan said.Smith finished the drive with a 9-yard TD pass to John Conner on fourth-and-1.Obviously, it escalated into something we dont need it to, but the referees did a good job in getting guys back on the sidelines and the game continued on, Smith said.Ryan Succop kicked three field goals for Tennessee, the last a 51-yarder with 2:02 left in the third quarter for an 11-10 lead.Locker was starting with rookie Zach Mettenberger out with his own sprained shoulder. He was hurt when hit by Coples late in the first half, sending him straight to the locker room holding his arm against his body. Coples also helped knock Locker out of the game the last time these teams met last season.NOTES: Johnson, the Titans third all-time leading rusher, finished with 55 yards on 10 carries. ... The Jets came in last in the NFL in red zone offence, scoring 37.8 per cent scored TDs on two trips. ... Walker finished with 93 yards and set the Titans yards receiving record in a season for a tight end with 793 yards, passing Frank Wycheck, who had 768 in 1998.___AP NFL website: Pro32: Head to Head | Professional football news from the Associated Press and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow Teresa M. Walker at www.twitter.com/teresamwalker Dwight Clark Jersey .com) - The Toronto Blue Jays will look to snap a three-game skid Friday night when they continue their road trip in the opener of a three-game set against the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park. Robbie Gould Jersey . Tottenham claimed top spot in Group K by winning 2-0 at Tromso after defender Adnan Causevic scored an own goal before Mousa Dembele put the result beyond doubt. Valencia made sure it will finish first in Group A with a 1-0 win at Swansea thanks to an early goal from Dani Parejo. 403 Forbidden .

David Horsey of England was also on 5 under through 15 holes to join Warren atop the leaderboard before play was stopped.LONDON - One in four professional footballers said they suffer symptoms of anxiety and depression in a new study into the sports largely unexplored "dark side" of mental illness. The mental health of recently retired professional footballers was even more worrisome, with one in three reporting signs of anxiety and depression. Some 300 current and former professionals from the Netherlands, Major League Soccer, Scotland, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand took part in the study for the players union, FIFPro. While football can draw on reams of scientific study about players physical injuries, little research has previously been done into their mental health, and mental health problems have remained very much taboo in the sport, FIFPro chief medical officer Vincent Gouttebarge said. "There is definitely some dark side of professional football," he said in an interview. "We dont talk about mental health issues in football, or we didnt talk about this issue," he added. "Its quite a macho culture so people do not talk about it." Gouttebarge said the studys findings suggest that professional footballers are no less prone to mental illness than other younger people in the general population. He said that might surprise fans who believe footballers live comfortable, worry-free lives, with media attention often focusing on the wealth of the most successful players. "Contrary to what people think, professional footballers experience psychological problems just like other groups in the population," Gouttebarge said. Among the 180 active footballers who responded to the lengthy questionnaire, 10 per cent reported symptoms of distress, five per cent reported signs of burnout and three per cent said they suffered from low self-esteem. Nearly 20 per cent reported problems with alcohol, which Gouttebarge said could include binge drinking and regularly drinking too much, and seven per cent said they smokeed. Logan Paulsen Jersey. The 121 former professionals who responded on average had 12-year playing careers and have been retired for five years. Fifteen per cent showed signs of burnout and 18 per cent signs of distress. One in three reported drinking problems, 12 per cent smoked, and 39 per cent reported suffering from depression and anxiety. Gouttebarge said that could include worrying, mood swings, difficulties sleeping, feeling stressed, not being sociable or a combination of symptoms. "Mental illness seems to occur among former professional footballers more often than in current players, and more often than in other populations. Consequently, mental illness among former professional footballers cannot be underestimated and should be a subject of interest for all stakeholders in football," the study said. Retirement was "really a critical period," with players abruptly losing the structure of regular training and the support of being in a club, Gouttebarge said. "You have to find a new life," he said. "It can put you under a lot of stress." Long-term injuries and surgeries that take players out of the game and away from close, regular contact with teammates can also be factors in mental health problems. Being forced to stop playing professionally because of injury or because clubs wont offer another contract can be particularly hard to cope with, Gouttebarge noted. "This has been recognized in other sports as a huge cause of mental health issues," he said. "The guy who is willing to retire or to stop his career is really (in) a different kind of situation to the one who is forced to retire." He called the study "a good first step" toward identifying the scope of mental health issues in football. The survey is expanding to players in France and from French-speaking nations in Africa, with plans to also study players in Spanish-speaking countries and Japan, Gouttebarge said.
