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.

Green Lantern: Being Santonio Holmes, A Jet Dealing With Turbulence

For the Jets to exceed somewhat low expectations this season, they need Santonio Holmes to return and do what he does best — provide not just the requisite statistics, but more of his signature moments.



Green Lantern: Jets’ Running Game Will Be A Sum Of Many Unproven Parts

Chris Ivory will eventually be the guy for the Jets, but until he’s 100 percent Bilal Powell has a real opportunity to show he never should have been written off in the first place.

Green Lantern: What’s Sad Is, Rex Can’t Win No Matter What He Does

If you ever wonder why so many fans are continually rolling their eyes over the TMZ-ification of sports journalism, the latest reporting on Rex Ryan should speak volumes.

Green Lantern: If Jets Are Smart, They’ll Delay The Dawning Of Geno Era

For the vast majority of the past 40 years the Jets have gotten the quarterback position all wrong. That doesn’t have to be the case this time around.

Capellini: Islanders Are Building A Team To Last The Test Of Time

You may not be in love with what the Isles have done so far this offseason, but you have to give them credit for remaining disciplined. There has been something righteous about their approach.

Capellini: Islanders Employing Slow And Steady Wins The Race Approach

The Islanders have been active this offseason, but maybe not in the way you had hoped. Don’t sweat it. They are improved and could get better as the summer progresses.

Capellini: Islanders Need To Attack A Strong Goalie Market ASAP

Garth Snow was a goalie, one that experienced some success in the NHL. So he has to know the status quo will not be acceptable for his Islanders next season. If Evgeni Nabokov is the starter again, there will be hell to pay.

Green Lantern: Brilliant Belichick Just Did Jets A Serious Solid

Bill Belichick is thought of as the smartest coach in the NFL, and perhaps in all of sports. But with the announcement of his latest reclamation project, the mad scientist in him has morphed into the nutty professor.
