Green Lantern: Baltimore Is The Absolute Last Place The Jets Need To Be Going

Unless something changes in a hurry, the Jets’ game on Sunday in Baltimore has disaster written all over it. We’ve seen it too many times in the past to be naive.

Green Lantern: Rex Just Did His Young, Impressionable Jets A Serious Solid

Ed Reed may not be the player he once was, but he’s certainly still enough of a player to help the young Jets become men. And he’s here now for one reason and one reason only. Rex Ryan.

Green Lantern: Now Is Not Time For Jets To Take Ball Out Of Geno’s Hands

Geno Smith is not a game manager, and the Jets have to fight every impulse they might have to make him one. They’re simply not good enough to rely on the run and defense alone.

Capellini: Inexplicably, Islanders In Throes Of Another November To Forget

Since the start of the 2010-11 season, the Islanders are an amazingly bad 7-18-5 in November.

Green Lantern: Rex Remains The Right Guy To Lead Jets Into The Future

Rex Ryan has never sold out. He is who he is and that allure is the main reason why his players always play hard for him. But he has faced one massive obstacle, and, contrary to popular belief, it hasn’t been his mouth.

Capellini: Trade For Sniper Vanek Shows Islanders Finally Mean Business

Islanders fans may struggle for a while accepting the fact that one of the most popular players in franchise history is gone, but the truth is Thomas Vanek is a world-class player. Matt Moulson is not.

Green Lantern: No Longer Flying Coach, Ivory Can Make The Jets Soar

The Jets and their fans waited almost three months to see if Chris Ivory was worth the investment. If he keeps this up he will prove to be the ultimate steal.

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.
