Mike Maccagnan has given Jets fans a reason to believe, but as long as the most important position on the field remains a crapshoot, the real expectations cannot begin.
He had a good, but not great, regular season. So far he’s been very good in the playoffs. Now the Islanders need Jaroslav Halak to be exceptional. And history suggests he should be.
The Islanders came out like guided missiles to begin Game 3, launching themselves at everything that moved. And to absolutely no one’s surprise, the fourth line led the way.
The Islanders were simply a different team in Game 1 than the one that went just 6-8-5 over the season’s final quarter. They imposed their will against the Capitals.

Eric Decker has persevered during a tough first season with the Jets, slowly proving that he’s not a product of someone else’s greatness.

Let’s be serious. Forget the Raiders and the Rams. Why don’t the Jets just move to Los Angeles? They certainly aren’t serving any purpose here.
The mob formed at the gate armed with pitchforks and torches. It mattered little that it was just the eighth game of the season. The crowd wanted blood. They wanted Jaroslav Halak’s head on a stick.
This Sunday’s game in Kansas City means nothing to me. Michael Vick can throw five touchdown passes and the Jets can put forth their best effort of the season on both sides of the ball and it won’t mean jack.
There’s a common misconception about the Percy Harvin trade that needs to be cleared up before we can all move forward. The Jets didn’t do it to save their season.
