Green Lantern: Will The Real Jets Of New Jersey Please Stand Up?

A week after shocking the football world, the Jets are back to being a team in need of an identity in the face of rebuilding. That’s how quickly these things happen.

Green Lantern: At Long Last, The Jets Finally Have An Offensive Coordinator

He’s only been here for five games, but new offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg is already proving to be nothing like his predecessors. He’s creative. He’s aggressive. He loves to throw the ball. He believes in balance.

Capellini: Islanders Won’t Be Defined By Rising Stars, But By Goaltenders

As we begin a season that will feature the Islanders for once as a team to reckon with, they have troubling questions at the one position that they really need to have most if not all of the answers.

Green Lantern: It’s Called Rebuilding, Jets Fans — Learn To Deal With It

Some Jets fans don’t just want to replace Geno Smith after a bad game in the fourth week of his rookie season, they want to replace him with a guy with even less experience. That’s just amazing logic.

Green Lantern: Line Of Scrimmage Is Where Jets Live, Breathe And Eat

The Jets are by no means a great football team. But they have all the makings of being one some day because they are physical and impose their will in the places that matter most: the trenches.

Green Lantern: It’s No Coincidence — Jets, Tone Time Take Flight At Same Time

Remember Santonio Holmes? The Buffalo Bills won’t forget him any time soon. And if the Jets are lucky, neither will Geno Smith.

Green Lantern: Jets Need To Accept The Fact That Geno Is The Ballgame

There really needs to be no more talk of anyone other than Geno Smith being the starting quarterback of the Jets. You’d be amazed just how detached from reality some people are.

Green Lantern: The ‘Good Hands Team’ The Jets’ Receivers Are Not

Anybody feel like catching the ball? How about tucking it away? Anybody? The Jets’ wide receivers are doing an already struggling rookie quarterback no favors.

Green Lantern: Patriots’ Long List Of Injuries An Unexpected Gift For Jets

Two weeks ago if anyone had said the Jets had a legitimate shot to go into Foxboro in Week 2 and win that person likely would have been laughed out of the room. But the NFL has a strange way of leveling the playing field.

Green Lantern: Credit Jets For Winning? Nah, We Wouldn’t Want To Do That

Over the last 24 hours there has been an overemphasis on just how lucky Rex Ryan’s bunch got on Sunday against Tampa Bay. Frankly, it’s doing nothing more than showing the critics’ true colors.

Green Lantern: Jets Must Remain Committed To Geno, No Matter What

Most of you wanted him and now you got him, along with all the craziness that’s sure to follow. Now you just have to ask yourself how patient you plan to be.

Green Lantern: Idea Of Jets Being Terrible Has No Basis In Fact — Until It Does

If you believe everything you read there’s really no reason for the Jets to even take the field this season. This idea of predicting three or four wins is just as silly as saying 11 or 12. You just don’t know.

Green Lantern: Having Fun As A Jets Fan These Days? I Didn’t Think So

The problems that plague the New York Jets have become much bigger than guys who wear uniforms, blow whistles, sit in secret bunkers and write checks.

Green Lantern: If Ivory Ends Up A Tin Man, Jets Will Be In Serious Trouble

Of all the so-called “stories” coming out of Jets training camp, the one that really needs to be addressed more is the health of one Chris Ivory.

Green Lantern: Jets’ Mornhinweg Better Not Hold Geno Back On Saturday

The last thing Jets fans need to see during the second preseason game is Geno Smith not have plays called that give him the opportunity to win this quarterback competition.
