Green Lantern: Every Bit Of Criticism Jets’ Idzik, Rex Get This Week Is Deserved

Sure, it’s just one loss. But to try to take positives from Sunday’s disaster at Lambeau Field would really expose a disturbing case of denial. The Jets beat themselves and there’s just no way to spin it.

Green Lantern: A Little Turbulence Aside, Jets Have Capable Pilot In Geno

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.

Ranking The 10 Most Disappointing Local Baseball Players Of 2014

The Bombers spent nearly $500 million in the offseason and this was the year that the Mets were finally expected to contend. Let’s just say it hasn’t worked out for either party.

Green Lantern: Don’t Expect Vintage CJ2K, But Johnson Will Soar For Jets

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.

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
