Green Lantern: Jets’ Offense Has Left The ‘D’ Hanging For Years, And It Has To Stop

Anyone else tired of hearing about cornerbacks? The Jets need to start doing their defense a favor by moving the ball and putting up points like a 21st century NFL team.

Green Lantern: Jets Deserve A Lot Of Credit For Their Handling Of Geno

For the first time in a very long time, the Jets are showing conviction. They are sticking to a plan. They have inserted contingencies in case it goes awry, but their vision at QB is crystal clear.

Andre Johnson Reportedly Wants Out Of Houston; Could Jets Be Interested?

Andre Johnson has reportedly asked Houston for a trade, and though the Texans sound like they are not interested in moving the future Hall of Fame wide receiver right now, the suitors are already lining up.

Capellini: Islanders Need 1-2 More Impact Moves To Have Legit Expectations

For the first time in a long time, the Islanders might have some margin for error heading into a season.

Capellini: Fans Pray Halak Is Just Opening Act Of Islanders’ Summer Of Garth

Someone had to be the pioneer. Regardless if Jaroslav Halak knows it or not, his signing with the Islanders on Thursday was a really big deal.

Green Lantern: Houston Has A Problem, And The Jets Should Be The Solution

Andre Johnson, even at 32, is still the real deal as far as NFL wide receivers go. Despite all they’ve done so far, the Jets still have a hole at the position. John Idzik should at least make a call.

Capellini: Capuano Spared Means Snow Knows He Failed The Islanders

Don’t look so down, Jack. You get to keep your job. You have basically been cleared of wrongdoing. Garth has rightly jumped on the grenade.

Capellini: All Hail The Gospel According To Howie On ‘Minor League’ Nassau County

MSG Network play-by-play man Howie Rose will always be the ultimate professional, and won’t shy away from telling the viewers what he really thinks. Call him a homer at your own peril.

Green Lantern: All These Years Later, Jets Now Understand The Importance Of QB

In a perfect world, the Jets would be equipping Geno Smith — and only Geno Smith — for the 2014 season. Only they aren’t, and I can’t say I blame them. But their plan at quarterback will end up being a wise decision.

Capellini: Islanders Are Creeping Up On A Point Of No Return With Their Fans

It’s getting more and more difficult to convince anyone that perception of the Islanders is any different than their true reality.

Capellini: Garth Going To Bat For Islanders Season-Ticket Holders Is Hysterical

Garth Snow is angry, and understandably so. But the words that came out of his mouth on Thursday regarding the shocking injury that ended John Tavares’ Olympics and, more importantly, his season with the Islanders, were misguided.

Capellini: Islanders’ AMac Is A Nice Player, But Not Worth What He’s Asking

Apparently, teams will be lining up during free agency this summer to pay Andrew MacDonald $5 million per season. I say be my guest. The Islanders are very smart for not doing so.

Capellini: Vanek Failure Should Not Stop Islanders From Taking Necessary Risks

The Islanders traded for Thomas Vanek because of one simple reason: They are not the Rangers. They cannot sit back and let name recognition sell the franchise. They need to roll the dice to take the next step.

Birds Of A Feather Party Together: NYC Seahawks Fans Build A Nest In New Home

Carlow East, an Irish pub on 85th Street and Lexington Avenue, has turned into the unofficial watering hole for Seahawks fans that have either relocated from the Pacific Northwest or been home grown right here in the Tri-State area.

Capellini: Vanek’s Indecision On His Future Puts Massive Pressure On Islanders

Sooner or later, Garth Snow is going to have to make a decision, which likely will be the only decision he can make if things don’t change. Thomas Vanek is the only person who can alter that decision.
