Sure, it was just one game, but it was a telling game. There’s really no way around it: This Geno Smith is not the same player that some of you have grown to mistrust.
Chris Johnson is going to be asked to do a lot for the Jets this season. So far, he’s shown that age is just a number and he’s capable of being what he once was.
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.
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 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.
For the first time in a long time, the Islanders might have some margin for error heading into a season.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
It’s getting more and more difficult to convince anyone that perception of the Islanders is any different than their true reality.
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.
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.
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.
